In times of emotional distress, our relationship with food changes. With a stomach in knots from grief, pain & anxiety, some forget to eat entirely. Others survive by reaching for foods that provide comfort- sugar, processed foods, caffeine, alcohol- and emotional eating may continue for years after the initial grief or trauma. Proper nutrition promotes healing by:
- aiding in digestion
- boosting vitamin levels that increase energy levels
- reducing nausea and constipation
- supporting the immune system
