Disordered eating, depression, anxiety, and a body we loath are not life sentences. If you struggle with these, like I have, there is so much here for you.
As Esther Hicks said perfectly in her 3 part interview series with Oprah:
“hope is burdensome when made heavy by its companion = fear of failing." So then what's beyond hope and fear?
Misinformed media and highly corporatized agendas have caused confusion about our most basic virtue: The right to feel confident in our own skin.
I've deconstructed how I healed and continue to restore my body//mind in the following 4 steps. It was an evolution if nothing else.Our paths will look different, it's a given, but you have a friend in me. We're in this together, I can assure you.
Mental health is incredibly reliant upon stable nutrition. However, to focus purely on the physical benefits of diet misses the point of sustainable health and happiness because what we put into our bodies greatly impacts how we feel mentally & emotionally. It's been proven scientifically.
I found salvation in my lifelong search for truth, answers, credible science and ultimately an intuitive connection with my body and its needs. What I thought I knew about food in my younger years was muddied with fear and judgement and I learned to move beyond it by moving through it - by eating, teaching myself to cook, observing other cultures and becoming self aware in the process.
I found a more contented version of myself when I started buffering from other people's prescriptions and "labels." I found intentional eating which is to happily select and nourish myself with foods that are whole, unadulterated & unmanufactured and eat them in ways that are aligned with my hunger cues and hormonal needs. This was the conception of therapeutic eating.
I've been chipping away at who I am and what I have to offer. My work is a representation of that. My journey provides me with many of the tools I have the opportunity to use and implement today. I am a forever student. Gratitude is my god.
