Functional Health Canberra has the tools and techniques to help you reduce stress and free you from emotional eating.
The relationship between food and emotion can be complex, frustrating and mentally draining. Combined with the stress and pressure of parenthood, patterns of emotional eating and food cravings can be hard to stop.
There is, however, help available. Functional Health Canberra was founded by accredited Functional Nutrition Consultant and mum Melissa Kovacevic, who understands the confusion surrounding food and weight loss better than most people.
Melissa has a range of services available to help you banish the bad habits and fuel yourself and your family with the right foods and nutrition.
After years of failed weight loss diets, Melissa took an interest in nutrition as a way to end her own personal struggles with health and weight and later turned her passion into a career. Her aim is to educate others to nourish the body with delicious, nutritious foods rather than low calorie, fad diets.
Along with her accreditations as a Functional Nutrition Consultant, Melissa is also a Clinical Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) Practitioner.
EFT, also known as ‘tapping’, is a powerful, effective stress management tool using a combination of principles from ancient Chinese acupressure and modern psychology.
It works by tapping the fingers on specific meridian endpoints on the face and body while focusing on negative emotions or physical sensation. This has a calming effect on the stress centre of the brain, the amygdala, and reducing cortisol production, which is the body’s main stress hormone.
EFT is extremely effective for stress reduction and limiting negative behavioural patterns and habits, making it a potent tool for combatting emotional eating, negative food patterns and craving and for gaining body confidence.
If you would like to get started and free yourself of lifelong struggles with health or eating, Functional Health Canberra offer an easy, online booking system.
Parenthood is hard enough without the complexities of food and eating getting in the way of family life. For more information about Functional Health Canberra, check out the website or follow the Facebook page.
