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

Welcome to Episode 04 of the Undressing The Spirit Podcast! Today my guest is Dr. Robert Cox. Do you find yourself triggered by things that you can't even identify? Do you become anxious, nervous, edgy or sick and find that the past is suddenly right there with you again, right now, instead of where it should be in the past? Is it creating cravings and triggering addictions? These are common experiences and you are certainly not alone!

There is hope. Therapy and mindfulness training have proven very successful in dealing with trauma and addictions rooted in trauma. Learning to breathe through the anxiety and panic that can come with them is the beginning. Trauma and addictions almost always go hand in hand. Robert specializes in walking with his patients through those rough patches. He uses therapy and mindfulness to work towards overcoming the past, repairing damaged relationships and moving into the future with a new ability to set boundaries and hold healthy relationships.
