Evidence and Potential Mechanisms for Mindfulness Practices and Energy Psychology for Obesity and Binge Eating Disorder

Obesity is a growing epidemic. Chronic stress produces endocrine and immune factors that are contributors to obesity’s etiology. These biochemicals can also affect appetite and eating behaviors that can lead to Binge Eating Disorder (BED). The inadequacies of standard care and the problem of patient non-compliance have inspired a search for alternative treatments. Proposals in the literature have called for combination therapies involving behavioral or new biological therapies. This manuscript suggests that Mind-Body interventions would be ideal for such combinations. Two Mind-Body modalities, Energy Psychology and Mindfulness Meditation, are reviewed for their potential in treating weight loss, stress and behavior modification related to BED. Whereas Mindfulness Meditation and practices show more compelling evidence, Energy Psychology, in the infancy stages of elucidation, exhibits initially promising outcomes, but requires further evidence-based trials.
