"This program finally provided me with the insight I had always known, but never was able to accept."
I love the concept of not seeing myself as broken and being able to live and enjoy my life, and I am eternally thankful to this program for teaching a different story.
I began the Institute for the Psychology of Eating course in a state of desperation. I spent many years battling mysterious dietary problems, several autoimmune conditions, as well as adrenal problems. I spent more money that I can recall on supplements (god, the number of supplements), went on every nutritional diet I could get my hands on and tried every alternative therapy out there - Rolfing, osteopathic doctors, Ayurvedic doctors, acupuncture, yoga, exercise. Still, nothing worked – my life was on hold while I waited for someone to fix me. This program finally provided me with the insight I had always known, but never was able to accept. Deep down, I suspected that there were components of my health issues that were not going to be able to be solved by “fixing my biochemistry.” As a scientist, it was hard to see that these very physical manifestations were somehow rooted in my mind. Now it is clear, very clear. I’m not perfectly healthy, but I am much happier and calmer. I love the concept of not seeing myself as broken and being able to live and enjoy my life. I am eternally thankful to this program for teaching a different story that allowed me to see that the responsibility lies on my shoulders and how that shift in thinking grants me the power to live the life I want to live. I hope others benefit as much as I have from this amazing program – we would be such an amazing society if this is how we all approached our health.
