Loss, and the resulting condition of ‘grief’, is one of the most difficult things a human being endures. When you lose someone, it affects everything – your physical body, your emotions, your relationships, and every part of your life. For so many, it is a time of chaos and feeling out of control. A myriad of feelings arises as you are forced to face what lies ahead. It is at these stressful times that the relationship between food and grief can impact your health and introduce the possibility of disordered eating issues.
Integrated Eating™ is a concept developed from over 15 years of patients and colleagues telling me how I practice is radically different than other nutritionists in the Eating Disorder world.
