Weight Management with Food Psychology, Nutrition Counseling & Energetic Assessment
Food Psychology is an innovative, pioneering approach to mind-body nutrition: The study of how our thoughts, feelings and beliefs impact nutritional metabolism and health. Food psychology looks at the head phase of digestion, assimilation and calorie burning known as the Cephalic Phase Digestive Response (CPDR), a processing phase which has been found to be critical to weight control. This is good news in a time when obesity in the United States has become a major health crisis in all age groups and stress has become an everyday word and acceptable way of living.
Applying the idea of "slowing down" and "taking your time" when we eat is a new way of seeing nutrition, a way in which you examine your relationship to food and through an improved understanding of that relationship, transform and improve your metabolism.
The new dynamics of eating psychology makes us aware of how our bodies and minds are changed when we consume foods that contain sugar, fat and salt. Food manufacturers create products by manipulating these ingredients to stimulate our appetites, setting in motion a cycle of desire and consumption that ends with a nation of overeating.
Food Psychology is a unique and engaging new way to work with clients and how we deal with the most common eating challenges of our times. When food psychology concepts are combined with sound nutritional counseling adreessing key nutritional deficiencies and causes of diseases, the result is a powerful program for correcting bad eating habits and to gain optimal health. Incorporating a personal lifestyle program that optimizes health and well-being into an easy to manage dietary routine, should always be a priority for achieving long-term goals.
Energetic Assessment & Nutrition Counseling combines a Bio-Resonance computer system and the body's systems to asses one's health. The results of the assessment will give a clear picture of any nutrional and body imbalances.
With each session, clients will come away more empowered around their own relationship with food and asking such questions as:
• How does the way we think, believe and feel about food and
ourselves impact our relationship to food as a sustaining force
in our lives?
• How does the way we relate to food inform us about our lives?
• Do we live to eat or eat to live?
• Do we enjoy our meals and relish self-nurturing foods that are
alive and giving or do we rush through meals putting food in our
bodies that is dead and lifeless?
Dynamic Awareness Weight Management Program
Have you ever heard these phrases?…“Eat less and exercise more, consume non-fat foods only, It’s all about will power, control your cravings, no carbs, high protein/fat diet, eat raw food or become vegan.” Well, you are not alone and if you follow advice like that, you will be doomed because it doesn't work and it is not realistic or practical.
There are many factors contributing to your weight struggles with food. Hormones imbalances such as thyroxin, insulin, cortisol, etc, are just a few hormones behind a constant struggle and frustration with your weight. Each person’s metabolic rate burns calories through food differently and changes with age. Body responses to protein, carbs and fat vary from person to person impacting diet plans according to how the body metabolizes and process food.

Utilizing Mind-Body techniques, like hypnosis for weight loss is not new, in fact it has been around for a long time, but now there is a new awareness about its benefits and clinical role in integrative medicine. The goal is ultimately to not only lose the weight, but to keep it off. To achieve this goal you need to create both external and internal changes. Obviously you need to make the behavioral changes and eat healthy, nutritious foods in moderate portions.
Weight loss working with the unconscious mind is the most powerful key to permanently releasing negative beliefs about food and eating habits.
