Statistics show that 1 out of 3 children and teens in the U.S. are overweight or obese. In addition to food and exercise, it is important to begin to teach children to connect to their body and to trust in the healing aspects of their body system. This healing system was set up from birth in every child’s blueprint and includes the natural function of eliminating excess food and weight. Begin by pointing out that when they get a cut and it bleeds, it then forms a scab and goes away! Teach them the miracle of the body and its ability to heal as it tries to maintain their perfect proportion. Help them understand that they are not alone in this battle of weight loss and that their body is on their side. What messages do you give your child that seem to create a positive result?
When dealing with adults in my Freedom From Food seminars, I teach how the concept that the body heals itself is extremely important to weight loss.
“I Trust my body to take the nourishment it needs from food and to release the rest.”
