EFT, Emotional Eating and Eating Disorders

By Dawson Church, PhD

I have been privileged to deliver keynote speeches at several conferences on eating disorders. Why do you suppose the organizers of these conferences asked for an EFT expert to address their audiences?

Most attendees are professionals: psychiatrists, nurses, doctors, psychotherapists, or social workers. What would EFT have to offer these very experienced professionals that they don't already know?

The reason for these invitations is that the conference organizers and the attendees are painfully aware of the link between emotions and eating. Those suffering from bulimia don't purge for physical reasons; their behavior is usually driven by emotional pain. Like wise, binge eaters aren't packing extra food into their stomachs until they are stuffed because of physical hunger; they're propelled by emotional forces that override their body signals of satiation.

EFT can help those suffering from binge eating, anorexia nervosa, and bulimia to develop a healthy relationship with food.

Anorexia, a condition in which people starve themselves, can occur in men and women of any age, but it is anorexia refers to a loss of appetite, while anorexia nervosa describes a psychological disorder.

Anorexia nervosa's most obvious symptom is extreme thinness.

Here are my thoughts on using EFT for emotional eating:
