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:
- Recognizing and relieving the body shame and blame that undermines whole health.
- Honoring the difference between "letting go" and "giving up".
- Trusting your body means getting in touch with your inner signals and letting your body sort out the weight question.
- 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.
