Emotional Body: Holistic Approach to Making Peace with Food and Body

Why do I need to go beyond the food to make peace with food and my body?

That’s the one question I get and yes…

that’s a very valid question, and to be honest, a very good starting point for us to have a very powerful conversation.

We’ve been trained for years via diet culture to seek a solution to our food, weight and body issues with food and exercise. If we whip in shape our physical body, we will get result. Get thinner… and then, we’ll be happy and healthy.

yet it doesn’t work. We know that and hence why you and I are here…

Why doesn’t it work… because our relationship with food and body doesn’t stem from our physical body, rather it shows up in our physical body. It originates from our mind, emotions, and spirit.

That’s what I’ve found through my own struggle and later on what my training and education has taught me. The 4 layers of the human being is what we address in the Going Beyond the Food Method. It stems from a very old body of work – Holistic health.

In today’s episode, we’ll deep dive into the emotional body particularly with Dr. Joan Rosenberg.

In show 177, we spoke about the mental body with Christina Hyland.

Show 178 was about the spiritual body with Dr. Louise Swartswalter.

In show 179, we spoke about the physical body with Dr. Michelle Sands.

In this episode I discuss

  • The role of the Emotional Body in relation to the holistic health model
  • The real purpose of our emotions
  • How having emotional strength is part of confidence, too: Developing emotional strength

Last episode was an interview with Dr. Michelle Sands and she talked about the role of the physical body in relation to the holistic health model.

She also shared her view why we cannot separate each of the 4 bodies from each other and the impact of menopause and perimenopause to women’s body’s overall health. 

Finally, she detailed why suffering is optional when dealing with perimenopause and menopause and  how the Physical Body plays as a vehicle to making peace with food and body. Click here!
