The Dr. Carolyn Coker Ross Show: Binge Eating Disorder, Stress Eating, Emotional Eating, Food Addiction

May 18, 2020

Research has shown that toxic stress - for example, adverse childhood experiences (prolonged and extreme stress without compensatory support) changes the brain - increasing the risk for addictions, eating disorders, and other mental and physical health issues.  However, on the other end of the spectrum, NO stress deprives a child in particular of the brain changes that help them learn emotional regulation and resilience. In childhood, life experiences AND life stresses (when coupled with family support) help the brain develop pathways that allow the child to better respond to stress in the future.  The most important life experience for children is how their parents and other adults interact with them.
