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

Jun 14, 2021

Traumatic life experiences, including childhood trauma and the relationships you have with your caregivers growing up, directly affect the nervous system – often throwing it out of balance. An out-of-balance nervous system can make it difficult for you to tolerate your emotions. This then leads to using food (and other substances and behaviors) to numb or manage your anxiety, sadness, fear, anger, and other emotions. In this episode, I talk with Irene Lyon from Vancouver, Canada about the links between trauma, body memories and binge eating, compulsive overeating, food addiction, and emotional eating.

In this episode you will learn:

  1. The effect of trauma on the nervous system.

  2. How to use your body sensations and body functions to help you understand your emotions.

  3. How to release trauma using your body’s wisdom.
