"It's almost always emotional hunger that drives you: a fight with a spouse, an uncomfortable work situation, a lull in your workday, a needy parent or child, your life, your future, your past. It's something that sets off a brief episode of powerlessness. This book is really about finding the space between when something has affected you and your sudden urge to eat (which is not real hunger), and then exploring what goes on in your mind when you have that uncontrollable urge."

"Powerlessness After working with thousands of emotional eaters, I've been able to decode the secret of overeating and break it down to reveal some basic truths. You think the main thing you're struggling with is feeling powerless over your uncontrollable urge to eat. However, years of experience have proved to me that that sense of powerlessness over food, although deeply agonizing, is really a cover-up, and the consequence, of a deeper experience of powerlessness. 1. You feel powerless about how to deal with your self-doubts. 2. You feel powerless about how to get real satisfaction in life."

"Food, when used to make you feel better, actually impedes your ability to be informed by your feelings, to complete your emotional maturation, and to have the fulfilling life that you dream about. Once we bring the spotlight back to the real issues and take the focus away from food and weight, you'll begin to see who you really are, what you really want, and how to get it. Once you do this, you'll become like the person in love, or the child at play who doesn't want to come in for dinner, or the artist in the studio so fixated on creation that he forgets to eat."

- Roger Gould, Shrink Yourself: Break Free from emotional Eating Forever (Get the book.)

"Probably not. emotional eating is the norm at birth for all of us. When a mother feeds her baby, the baby stops crying because food soothes. Babies equate the mother's milk with survival, love, and peace of mind. When babies don't get mother's milk, they may settle for a substitute—a bottle or a pacifier, for instance. The pacifier has no warmth, taste, or nutritional value, but it's close enough to that primal experience to soothe the infant."

"To be well is not to be free of physical and emotional symptoms or to be spared physical and emotional challenges. If that were the definition of "well," there never would be a well person, at least not one who was well for long. Life, normal life and its living, is replete with intermittent and remittent morbidity. To be well is to be able to cope efficiently and effectively with the challenges. Hans-George Gadamer lived to a ripe old age and earned his place in the Pantheon of twentieth-century philosophers."

"In a study of 194 heart attack patients, those who reported lower amounts of emotional support were nearly 3 times more likely to die within 6 months than those with higher levels of emotional support. The Monday Morning Blahs Have you ever wondered when most people die? Statistically, it turns out that people are more likely to die on Monday morning before going to work than at any other time of the week."

"The emotional price for me is high, but the emotional price for patients . . . they are looking to me to get them something they think will save their lives." She told Ricki she would represent her, on the condition that they find published, scientific evidence that high-dose chemo was not experimental but established therapy. Within a week, Ricki delivered a stack of medical articles that persuaded Philipson they had the evidence they would need. By the early 1990s, doctors around the country who had begun to try Peters's desperate treatment were publishing their results."

"Wyatt has faced a lot of emotional ups and downs throughout his years at the ranch. Many kids who've become his friends have later died of cancer, which has been devastating for him. Taking long baths has helped him relax and deal with his emotions. And last summer, we adopted a shelter dog that followed Wyatt around every second. Even though he knows they'll be reunited next summer, Wyatt was heartbroken to leave that dog behind at the end of the summer. When we got back to New York, he was feeling a little deflated, and he said to me, "Mom, I just need a long soak in apple cider vinegar."

"He experienced chest pain with normal activity, such as walking across a room, or from just mild emotional stress. He had visited several cardiologists for his heart problem. They gave him a number of standard heart drugs, but his situation persisted, and he decided to see Dr. Sinatra for a fresh opinion. Testing showed that Louis had high levels of uric acid in his blood, indicating faulty ATP metabolism. He had already been taking low doses of L-carnitine and CoQIO. He needed higher doses, and he needed D-ribose to build his ATP pool."

"The emotional Employee Then we had "The emotional Employee."2 The best advice was apparently to remain calm and in control and to acknowledge the employee's feelings. But crying together with the fired employee was still not part of the response. If the employee went on crying for too long, a few minutes break was suggested. They also gave us some great statements to use, such as, "I know this is a difficult situation, but I do believe you'll do better than you think."

"When we feed people's physical, emotional, and spiritual bodies with comforting food, it creates balance in a variety of ways. TASTE BALANCING TABLE Sweet Salt Acid Fat Low-glycemic fruits Celtic sea salt Lemon Oils Cherry tomatoes Olives Lime Seeds and nuts Bell peppers Miso Grapefruit Seed and nut butters Carrots Sea veggies Apple cider vinegar Avocado Beets Kelp Sauerkraut Coconut pulp Whole orange Dulse Olives White miso Purslane In each of our foods, we like to have a taste base."

"A healthy body helps support your optimal emotional balance, highest intelligence, and increased spiritual awareness. A Juice Feast of 92 days allows ample time for rebuilding to occur, using green vegetable juices made in a Vitamix with a nut mylk bag or in a press-style juicer such as a Green Star. Green vegetable juices: On a Juice Feast we drink the juice from 2 pounds of leafy greens each day, which means that we hold greens in high regard, and as a necessity in any healing program."

"Lifestyle habits also play a role—obesity, emotional stress, inadequate sleep, and lack of exercise. Dr. Cleave's cross-cultural work, however, highlighted the main issue, which was an excess increase in the consumption of white sugar. In 1959 G. D. Campbell2 showed that there seemed to be a period of twenty years from the time refined carbohydrates(white sugar and white flour) are introduced into a culture and an outbreak of diabetes. Research on the urban Zulu was published in the South African Medical Journal in I960."

"Self-help and other groups can provide emotional support; empower and motivate you to make positive changes in your diet, exercise, and other lifestyle habits; and be a source of new coping strategies and skills. Some of these groups are led or monitored by health-care professionals, while others are run by laypeople."

"Studies show that mental and emotional stress causes blood glucose levels to rise in people who have type 2 diabetes and can cause glucose levels to rise or fall in people who have type 1 diabetes. Georgia, a forty-nine-year-old marketing manager with type 2 diabetes, noticed that she was having an increasingly hard time keeping her glucose levels in a healthy range with diet and her oral medication. The trouble all began, she said, when she took on a major project at work that required her to take work home with her every night."

"What good is living longer if we can't enjoy emotional and physical wellness and a full life? Applied to its fullest potential, high-nutrient eating can be the most effective therapy to reverse diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease. It is the powerful medicine to get you well and keep you well in later life. Achieving good health through healthful living is your most important investment and it will pay you back with tremendous interest in your later years. This book will make the commitment to that investment much easier."

"Brain injuries include emotional traumas, head traumas, damage from high blood pressure, and damage from the ravages of unhealthy living. In this situation, the brain's capacity to protect and repair cannot keep up with all of these stresses and you begin to lose brain function. This is called dementia. Alzheimer's disease is a deterioration of understanding, memory, and processing memories for problem solving."

"Pregnancy can be an emotional roller coaster. You're tired all the time, your hormones are out of control, you have a million things to take care of before the baby arrives. "We live in a very stressful society," said Dr. Manny Alvarez. "It's been shown that stress—just as it's been linked to high blood pressure and obesity—has also been linked to premature deliveries, because the chemical manifestation of stress is that it activates certain hormones in the body."

"In the next scene, we see the pilot in emotional agony as he begins the final approach for a landing and knows what's about to happen. Suddenly, the crewman in the observation dome drops into a trance. It's only then that we discover he's also an artist and has a sketch pad and pencil with him in his pack of supplies. We see him through the bubble as he quickly, expertly, and deliberately draws an image of the plane that he's in, complete with the observation dome and himself inside."

"He went on to discuss the psychological and emotional benefits of a mother breastfeeding her child. "Maybe I'm old-fashioned," he said, "but I still think that there's a value to that. I think if we do the other steps first—if we do the pre-conceptual and really clean up and detoxify as much as possible before giving birth—if that became the norm, then breast milk would become less toxic." Dr. Lawrence Rosen, a groundbreaking integrative pediatrician and the medical adviser to our environmental center, agrees with this advice. "

"When he stayed on it regularly, she noticed a big improvement in his emotional connectedness and his focus. Additional improvement was noted after he began taking phosphatidylcholine. The improvements were in demeanor, focus, temperament, connectedness, responsiveness, and decreased oppositional/ defiant behavior. His mother noted further improvement when the phosphatidylcholine was given intravenously. By the time of his next-to-last visit, he was doing extremely well in school, with much harder classes."

"It certainly doesn't start from emotional problems. It starts from physical harm to the brain. Therefore, it's actually a neurological disorder. More specifically, it's a neurotoxic disorder, because it's caused primarily by the presence of destructive elements that injure the brain: • Toxic chemicals. • Viruses. Incomplete proteins. • Inflammation. • Immune cells that attack the brain. These harmful forces wreak havoc upon the brain, and also cause terrible damage to the rest of the body."

"It had helped some patients with chronic fatigue syndrome to quickly feel much better, and it had even helped some people overcome mental and emotional problems, such as depression, anxiety, lassitude, and impaired cognitive function. These problems can be caused when toxins created by yeast metabolism enter the bloodstream and invade the brain. They can also be triggered when yeast harms the walls of the intestines, and allows partially digested food molecules to enter the system, and create cerebral allergies. If this was, indeed, happening to Kyle, it would not be an uncommon occurrence."

"These lower areas are governed by the highly emotional limbic system, which includes the brain's fear center, the amygdala. The lower brain is the first stop for most of the information that comes in from the outside world, through senses such as sight and hearing. This information is sorted out by the thalamus-which is where problems often start for ADHD kids. Like autistic kids, ADHD kids often have weak function of the thalamus, and aren't very good at sorting out the information from the senses. ADHD kids often perceive the world as a chaotic jumble of sights and sounds."

"Afterward, the physician can work with the patient to help him or her adjust to the emotional problems that caused the memory loss. The second group of individuals consists of those who are faking or malingering. Such individuals may show up in a distant location claiming to not know who they are and being unable to remember their family or background. They do, however, have accurate knowledge of what is going on around them and are able to pick up and learn new information in a manner that is quite normal."

"In the brain, specific areas produce the conscious perception of pain; they also integrate these sensations of pain with memory and with emotional responses. Some approaches to altering pain take advantage of particular attributes of these pain systems. Ibuprofen and similar drugs decrease the effect of the pain-associated chemicals released after tissue injury. Specific nerves carrying pain can be blocked with a local anesthetic, as a dentist does to perform a root canal. Similarly, in a procedure called epidural anesthesia, anesthetics are placed near where pain fibers enter the spinal cord."

"Difficulty Controlling Emotions after Stroke "Emotional liability," or difficulty controlling emotions, is a common problem after stroke. Sometimes it is associated with depression, at other times it occurs independently. Steve had what seemed to be a rather minor stroke. For a few weeks he had difficulty speaking, particularly when he got tired. What really bothered him, and his family, was uncontrollable crying, which happened in our office several times in the space of 30 minutes. While asking about his family, we asked whether his parents were still alive."
