5 Alternative Therapies for Emotional Overeating

Emotional overeating can make a person feel like there is no way out of the cycle of feeling sad, angry, anxious and so forth. People tend to eat just to alleviate their emotional pain. Here are 5 alternative therapies that are worth exploring:

Hypnosis: Hypnosis is effective because it addresses the mind directly with the power of suggestion. It's a clinical practice that many practitioners have used to treat emotional overeating.

Meditation: The intent as a treatment for emotional overeating is to "tune in" to the emotional thought center that is driving your cravings and/or binge eating. Mindfulness is the opposite of mindLESSness, which is what often happens in emotional overeating. The person does not really think about what they’re doing; it's mindless eating.

Herbal Supplements: There are some herbs that can help with the issue of emotional overeating such as Hoodia, Vitex, Ginseng and chickweed.

Acupuncture: Acupuncture has an ability to release endorphins and boost metabolism - making the client feel better emotionally, effectively curtailing the emotional overeating.

Nutrition: Nutritional deficiencies could play a part in this kind of overeating. Make sure you're not eating artificial, processed, pre-packaged foods; opt for fresh, whole foods as a general rule.
