    Curtis Harwell and Kim Duke discuss Binge Eating and What is it?

    in Fitness

    Binge eating disorder typically includes periods of excessive overeating. However, a person with a binge eating disorder does not subsequently induce purging (vomiting), as is the case with bulimia.

    Binge eating can occur on its own, or alongside other disorders or conditions, such as Prader-Willi disorder, or a lesion of the hypothalamus gland.

    Binge eating can encourage the development of hypertension (high blood pressure), obesity, diabetes and heart disease. Treatment options depend on what is causing the binge eating.

    A person with a binge eating disorder feels compelled to eat too much. Individuals will consume enormous quantities of food, even when they are not hungry. Binge eaters believe they have absolutely no control over their eating.

    The Chef Who Healed Himself - Eating for Meaning

    in Nutrition

    To heal yourself through food is my wish for all of you, this is Eating for Ultimate Meaning. So of course I jumped when recently I met an inspiring guy at Flavorpill in Soho. We were there for my astrologer, Monty Taylor's debut.  James Ray; First I met him, then I ate his raw chia seed pudding with blueberries and kudzu root and his raw cacao bars. Then I fell into a deep bond with him, because this is what gloriously food does sometimes. He is a spritely young guy named James, who comes from a long line of Italian Mama style chefs. James intuitively turned to veganism in order to heal himself of an enzyme deficiency, teaching himself to grow food and feed his own body and soul through cooking. Now he provide to New York's Elite.


    On this episode of Eating for Meaning Dr. Millie will interview James Ray, a raw vegan chef from New York and learn about his condition, his inspirations, his recipes and likely he will reveal some cooking secrets. Check out his website so you can book him: www.chefjamesray.com

    Exploring Bulimia and Binge Eating Disorder with Dr. Paul Garfinkel

    in Health

    An Invisible Disorder….unlike Anorexia, Bulimia and Binge Eating Disorder can hide behind a façade of average body weight, happiness and competence. 


    According to a report by CTV last February, Canadian hospitals and clinics specializing in eating disorders say there is a rise in the numbers of adults, teens and children, some as young as five, seeking help for eating disorders.  Most of them are women.


    I believe this topic also extends to those of us who may not fit into the Bulimic or Binge Eating category but also suffer from a life-long struggle with food, weight and dieting. 


    These disorders may be baffling to some and a very real obsession for others.  Acting in an insidious way, destroying lives.  Yet perhaps there is a gift of self-empowerment, love and life fulfillment by heading into and through these disorders? 


    What I’ve come to learn is that these types of eating disorders are usually not about the food but symptoms of much deeper issues. Issues that I’d like to invite Dr. Paul Garfinkel, a leading Toronto Psychiatrist who specializes in Eating Disorders to discuss on WbD Radio this Wednesday at 3:30pm (EST)


    I look forward to diving into Dr. Garfinkel’s wealth of knowledge and more importantly, his experience with these disorders in an effort to raise awareness and promote healthy recovery.

    Understanding Emotional Eating

    Do you have issues with food? Do you think you may be an "emotional eater?" What's an emotional eater?


    Emotional eating is when a person uses food as an attempt to control, monitor, and cope with negative feelings or thoughts. Because emotional eating typically results in overeating, it can often lead to poor self-esteem, unwanted weight gain, and obesity.


    If you are binge eating or sometimes not eating at all, learn how to recognize the triggers of emotional eating and understand the habits and causes.

    PTSD and Eating Disorders: Treatment and Healing

    in Health

    Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is driven by two major needs: 1) to feel safe, 2) to be in control. While survivors seek ways to manage their experience of the world they often find that controlling themselves offers immediate sensations of relief. It's no surprise that eating -- an essential survival behavior -- can lead to distorted coping mechanisms in the PTSD lifestyle.


    PTSD has proven to be a main predictor in eating disorders. In fact, 66% of all eating disorder patients have trauma in their history. Today, in honor of National Eating Disorder Awareness week Lauren Lohse (Navigator Program Manager) and Lauren Smolar (Helpline Manager) of National Eating Disorders Association join the show to discuss eating disorder symptoms, plus how to heal.


    Michele Rosenthal is a popular keynote speaker, award-winning author and post-trauma coach. Her shows combine scientific research, cutting-edge guests and personal stories that highlight the challenges and successes of deliberately deciding to change the direction of your life.

    The Dangers of Statins and Other Common Meds

    in Health

    Follow up on our program on Cholesterol FUN! Farmer Ron Eichner and Dr. Millie will discuss the dangers of commonly prescribed medications such as Statin drugs for lowering cholesterol, anit-histamines and more. Ron and Dr. Millie will springboard off a recently published article entitled "How statistical deception created the appearance that statins are safe and effective in primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease". This article reports how heads of clinical trials deceitfully boast the benefits of statins allthewhile downplaying their harms. More and more Americans are being prescribed medications at younger ages, but to what end?


    This show will follow up on our conversation last time where we explored the pros and cons of cholesterol, the differences between dietary cholesterol and serum cholesterol and what you an do naturally to keep your arteries clean, while protecting your brain and hormones.


    To learn more about Dr. Millie visit her website and check out her Eating for Meaning nutrition program. She practices Naturopathic Medicine and Holistic Nutrition in Brooklyn and NYC.
