Let's be real -  it's not easy dealing with cultural standards regarding beauty, body image and more!

So how does one maintain optimal health mind, body, and spirit? And is there really a connection between spirituality and eating??

My guest today is Dr. Nazanin Moali. She is a clinical psychologist and eating disorder specialist practicing in Los Angeles California. Together we dive deep into the world of culture, religion, psychology, and recovery.

In this Podversation:

  • Nazanin's passion for helping women develop a deeper understanding of themselv es and their struggles
  • How eating can be used as avoidance or distraction from feelings and why spirituality can help
  • Why cross addictions are so common (e.g., disordered eating and compulsive sexual behaviors)
  • Nazanin's journey to choosing eating disorders and sexuality as her specialties
  • Crossover between perfectionism and compulsivity
  • When normal tendencies with eating and handling stress go awry
  • What parents can do to help prevent their children from developing eating disorders
  • The importance of being aware of family genetic loading
  • How dysfunctional it is to fit a "certain body image"
  • Why we should focus on "strong and healthy"
  • How to begin changing the dialogue on unrealistic body images
  • Key statements to avoid when it comes to body image
  • How spirituality can either help or worsen eating issues
  • The potential pitfalls of spiritual fasting when it comes to disordered eating behaviors
  • How romantic partners can best support one another if disordered eating is an issue
  • Why nourishing mind, body, and spirit is absolutely vital to change
