I hope you are doing well. I find it incredibly interesting how much experience our bodies hold.
Like when you are really starving, and you have thoughts of high energy foods immediately, your body is telling your brain what it needs, lots of energy, and your brain is making a match by giving you suggestions that meet that energy need.
Not as cool emotionally but none the less amazing, is how our bodies can encapsulate unpleasant memories away when in the moment we can’t handle them. They do show up again, and are mission is to not abandon them but learn how to meet them in safe, solid, compassionate witnessing from ourselves and ideally a trusted other.
Then they get a chance to complete and move on. Versus the constant push down/away/try to outrun many of us have been taught.
Today, I am sharing with you a recent podcast I did with the amazing Glenys and Aaron on their podcast, Dietitians Unplugged. They allowed me to share my experiences with helping people navigate the fight or flight cycle as it shows up through our food, how to see that all diet mentality behaviors such as ” I feel fat” and wanting to under/over-eat or move too much or not being able to move are signs of a “faux window of tolerance” that we are using to try to manage our sensations internally.
I am deeply grateful that they let me speak about this really important way of helping all of us feeling better and safer in our bodies.
Please enjoy and tell me what you think!
