Trauma-Informed Eating

All types relationships can be a challenge & some especially struggle with their relationship to food. If this is you, you may have noticed that resources on nutrition, especially in mainstream diet culture don’t discuss the ways that histories of trauma can impact our experiences eating & our relationship to food. They don’t address the root cause of the struggle & don’t talk about the trauma responses that can come up in our relationship to food & weight management.

Following a healthy way of eating, even mindful eating, intuitive eating, and especially following a diet in isolation for weight loss or weight regulation won't work as a sustainable solution because trauma responses will always come up & come back when making changes & setting goals

That is why I have come up with the concept of Trauma informed Eating- w the help of 2 theories & 1 type of therapy in psychology & nervous system health- Polyvagal Theory, Attachment Theory, Internal Family Systems Therapy which all overlap to create a new way of navigating through these incredible challenges to finally find healing w your relationship to food

We all have experienced trauma, whether relational or an event, no one goes unscathed. Perhaps, u didn't get enough of things like emotional connection, or something happened to you like abuse. It wasn't your fault

Trauma recovery & healing your relationship to food is about building safety and security in the present. We cannot shame ourselves into healing. We need more compassion. This compassionate new approach offers a different way that takes the shame out of equation, to finally heal your relationship with food.
