Mothers, Bodies, and Food
Believe it or not, your relationship with food and your body is intricately connected to your mother.
Regardless of what your relationship with her is like today (even if she isn’t with us currently on this earth in the physical form), the link between you, your mother, and food is undeniable and deeply rooted.
Your mother was your first source of food (even before you were born!).
At one point, you relied on your mother. In the same way, children need and rely on adults today.
She was also a major player in programming your relationship with your emotional needs – like protection, comfort, love, and connection.
Research tells us that a mother’s love-or-hate relationship with her belly, thighs, and body gets passed on, directly impacting their child’s relationship with their body.
If left unhealed, unhealthy patterns can be passed down for many, many generations.
But it doesn’t have to be this way.
Perpetuating an unhealthy relationship with food/body can stop. It needs to stop.
It stops with you.
In the work that I do with my clients in the Escape From Emotional Eating Programs, we do exactly that.
We work together to heal your relationship with food – all the way to the roots.
We nourish your unmet emotional needs and liberate you from old toxic food/body beliefs.
It’s a process of untangling and cutting cords with patterns and behaviors that no longer support you, so you can begin living in integrity with yourself – your values, your dreams, your desires.
Because in order to fully break free from your struggles with food so you can be a whole and empowered woman, you must address the roots of your dysfunctional relationship with food and your body.
If the roots of your relationship with food (and the hidden entanglement of food/body programming you received from your mother) are not addressed, you’ll unconsciously perpetuate them, passing them down to your children by default.
Again, it doesn’t have to be this way. But you have to do something about it.
So, click here right now so we can explore if working together would be a fantastic fit.
Because stopping this unhealthy cycle starts with you.
In service to your freedom,
P.S. If you’re thinking, “But I’ve already done so much work around healing my inner child and my relationship with my mother.“…
From my experience of spending 932 hours in therapy, I can tell you that general therapy leaves a big missing piece in all of this – the link to food. If the direct connection between mothers, daughters, and food is not addressed head-on, as we do in the Escape From Emotional Eating Programs, the dysfunctions and dis-ease will persist.
Click here right now and apply so we can connect and make sure the roots of your relationship with food are fully healed.
P.P.S. If you’re thinking, “I had a wonderful childhood and have a great relationship with my mother.” OR “My mother was not a part of my life.”
EITHER WAY: the intricate link between mothers, bodies, and food tends to be one of the biggest blind spots I’ve seen from my decade+ of research into the Psychology of Eating. It’s there regardless of how she did or didn’t show up. There is so much to explore here, so click here to get help with your blind spots.
