Building a Body Trust® Practice 

January Hawthorne Diabetes Group Recap

During January’s HDG gathering, we examined factors that impact our relationship with food and our body, and explored key elements of a Body Trust® Approach to Food, Weight and Health.

The group was lead by Dana Sturtevant, MS, RD. She is the co-founder of Be Nourished, and co-creator of Body Trust®, a radical healing paradigm that encourages movement toward a compassionate model of dynamic self-care to heal body shame and patterns of chronic dieting and disordered eating.

We discussed key elements of a Body Trust® Approach, which include:

  1. Recognizing and relieving the body shame and blame that undermines whole health.
  2. Honoring the difference between "letting go" and "giving up".
  3. Trusting your body means getting in touch with your inner signals and letting your body sort out the weight question.
  4. Trust in your body is your birth right. By developing an authentic relationship with your body, it will again be a safe and welcoming home.
