Food, Brain Chemistry and Binging: The Link and the Solution Cedric Centre for Counselling Inc. For the next 6 weeks (or so) I’ll be sharing with you, a little each week, about certain foods and how they impact our brain and body chemistry. After reading this series of articles you will have a better understanding of why you feel drawn to have certain foods at certain times. In other words, once we understand why we’re doing what we’re doing we can set about finding a solution that truly will provide the results we seek. In fact, the reason that your past efforts at weight loss and balance with food have not been successful, in any lasting way, is simply that you never had anyone show you, clearly, in a way that gave you that light bulb moment, why you’re doing what you’re doing. In my opinion that is the first and most important thing that should happen in any therapeutic relationship. Once you understand why you do what you do, the rest is just a step-by-step process from where you’ve been to where you want to be. The way you respond to those thoughts in the form of eating certain foods or engaging in other harmful coping strategies like drinking, isolation, procrastination and shopping… to name but a few. I’ve written numerous articles, and an entire book (Food is not the Problem: Deal with What Is!) about these pieces, particularly the first one – how our thoughts influence our emotions, our behaviours and therefore our experience of life on the whole. I want to clearly articulate why you’re drawn to eat certain foods at certain times and in certain quantities. For this week, before we get into the details, I want you to take part in a little self-reconnaissance.
Make some notes and next week when we start talking about specific foods and their impact this will start to make mucho sense!

Chemical stress: Common sources of chemical stress include poor nutrition, sugar, refined carbohydrates and unhealthy fats. The emotional stress, houseguests and holiday preparations are magnified by the chemical stress of rich foods, alcohol, and over-indulgence.

I’m going to bet that you’re reading this because you’re frustrated with your relationship with food and you want to be able to simply eat when you’re hungry and stop when you’re full. If you’re just joining me I urge you to take some time over the next few weeks and read the series on The Diet Mentality that I just completed. This is because once we understand what’s going on, we automatically have genuine compassion and patience for ourselves, coupled with a willingness to change our behaviour and a sense of hope and trust that our efforts will be worthwhile. You’ll find it very enlightening and then you’ll be able to make much better use of the information I’ll be sharing over the next 5 weeks, or so.
If you want to chat about it and move forward rapidly, contact us for a session or, if you are a member, post your experiences on our web program forum. We cannot avoid it, and, actually, life without stress would be boring and we wouldn’t grow.
Also, any repetitive motions, overworking a muscle in the garden or on the computer, and even a lack of sleep contribute to physical stress.

Drugs, preservatives, tobacco, alcohol, vaccinations, pollen and a host of other substances also affect our nervous systems, muscle tone and our spine.
Many of the health problems that prompt New Year’s resolutions next month reach the tipping point this month.
Also, you would like to maintain a natural weight for your body without stress and without rigorous exercise regimes. Nothing new is happening to you, you’re just more aware of what’s been going on behind the scenes. Early in life, learning to walk and ride a bike, even the birth process itself are forms of physical stress.
Emotional stress also causes chemical stress as your hormones begin to cycle abnormally, causing constriction of capillaries and brain chemistry alterations. This will lead to a genuine increase in your hopefulness and happiness levels which leads to a change in your behaviours.
You can enter the vicious circle by forming trigger points or experiencing muscle weakness. But, while Chiropractic can't eliminate the external causes of your stress, you can reduce the stress to your nervous system with chiropractic care, which can help you and your body adapt and accommodate your increased stress levels.
You’ll return to your commitments not only stronger, but healthier and able to fully enjoy this special time of year.
