Proven strategies to overcome emotional eating & food addictions

Emotional eating, eating disorders and body image issues are an inter-generational phenomena. It starts with children, spans across teenagers and young adults and can go way into old age. What is it about food that has such an attraction that so many of us use it like a drug or refrain from using it at all?

Carolyn Ross MD shares her personal story around healing from a severe diagnosed disease and what lessons she has learnt. She now applies those lessons and her knowledge from integrative medicine with her patients who suffer from food addiction and eating disorders.

What you get from tuning in:

  • What attracts or repels us so much about food
  • The pleasure loop
  • How Dr. Carolyn overcame chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia holistically
  • The cause and commonality in all types of food disorders
  • The link between black and white thinking and food disorders
  • Early warning signs of food disorders

Favorite Quotes:

  • Food causes a 150% spike in dopamine
  • Food is an easy and cheap drug
  • Food itself is not addicting, in  and of itself. Food addiction is a behavioral addiction.
  • There are many roads to healing. What works for one, doesn’t work for another. There is no ONE thing that will cure you. Instead, build yourself a team of practitioners to see what works for you.

“An illness is a call to action. And that call to action is about changing what is not working in your life.”
Dr. Carolyn Ross
