Food addiction is real, and takes many different forms like binge eating, bulimia, or anorexia. Researchers are finding out that the cause for those various eating disorders is, however, often the same – stress.
When things don’t go as planned at work place or in relationships, our brains try to relieve the unease by focussing on food. Yet a stressed-out brain is not a good control centre.
This is the reason why doctors are increasingly recommending Transcendental Meditation as a remedy against food addiction. Reclaiming a settled, harmonious pre-frontal cortex brings automatically back a natural, healthy attitude towards food.
