April is Emotional Overeating Awareness Month

Be aware that homeopathy can help with emotional overeating.

Emotional overeating is a complex, often secretive, behavior pattern that can be triggered by stress, grief, anger, loneliness, abusive relationships, or circumstances beyond one’s control. Those who deal with emotional overeating may also have to deal with results like
• Anxiety
• Arthritis
• Body shaming
• Cancer
• Criticism
• Depression
• Diabetes
• Guilt
• Hair and tooth loss due to nutrient deficiency
• Headaches
• Heart disease
• High blood pressure
• Lack of support from family and friends
• Obesity

The following homeopathic remedies may help.
Argentum nitricum for those who crave sweet or salty foods but feel worse after them
Carcinosin for those who combat abusive relationships and guilt over weight and long for the opinion of others, and want to be liked
Ignatia for those battling grief and fears
Natrum mur for those who feel guilty, ruminate, feel rejected, or self-conscious about their bodies and weight, but are reserved and hold feelings inside
Pulsatilla for those suffering from depression and loneliness, with weepiness and longing for comfort and affection
Staphysagria for those experiencing both depression and eating from guilt or low self-esteem, who have been in abusive or hurtful relationships or situations, and may suppress their anger and other emotional reactions

Emotional overeating has serious consequences and should not be taken lightly. Seek help from your homeopath, a counselor, a nutritionist, and/or a trusted friend.
