Flower Essences for Emotional Eating

Don't forget...this Sunday at 2:00 p.m. I'll be speaking at the 306 Phoenix House (306 S. Phoenix Ave; Tulsa) with special guest and dietitian Jason Stevens about eating mindfully for health over the holidays.

Two days ago, I posted about emotional eating. Today, I would like to address three flower essences that can help with emotional eating.  Flower essences can be used as a supportive therapy once you have set your resolve to change this habit.

Cherry Plum essence supports people who fear they are going to lose control. For example, if you fear you are going to lose control an eat an entire box of cookies to cope with your feelings, Cherry Plum can support you in regaining control.

Sweet Chestnut essence supports people who keep repeating the same mistakes over and over again. For example, you know that eating doughnuts make you feel sick to your stomach, but you just can't keep yourself from pulling into the doughnut shop every few days.

Crab Apple essence helps people to feel better about themselves as they are. Staving oneself and many more poor dieting habits are borne of a poor self image. Crab Apple supports self acceptance.

Other flower essences may be supportive, too. These three essences are sold as an Emotional Eating Support kit and can often be found in the flower essence section of your natural food store.
