Brookhaven Retreat Observes National Eating Disorders Association Week in February

Knoxville, TN (PRWEB) February 26, 2014

February 24-28th is National Eating Disorders Association Week 2014. Hosted by the National Eating Disorders Association, this week aims to spread awareness around eating disorders. According to NEDA, 20 million women in the United States suffer from an eating disorder at some point in their life. Brookhaven Retreat recognizes disordered eating can result from emotional breakage.

Disordered eating arises from a combination of behavioral, emotional and psychological factors and can be serious and life-threatening. Anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorders are the most common types of eating disorders, however, an unhealthy relationship with food comes in many forms.

Eating disorders are often case a secondary symptom of another mental illness. Studies have shown depression, anxiety, addiction and bipolar disorder can influence the evolution of eating disorders. Women suffering from low self-esteem and negative body image have a much higher risk of developing anorexia, bulimia and binge eating. Stressful and life changing traumas can also trigger eating disorders. When a woman cannot verbally express overwhelming emotions, food is used to feel in control of those feelings.

Brookhaven Retreat Emphasizes Snow Safety in February

Knoxville, TN (PRWEB) February 11, 2014

This year, snowy weather has taken a toll on roads and businesses in Tennessee. Regardless of how beautiful the fluffy flakes might be, they can quickly become a safety hazard. Because feelings of safety and stability are critical to mental health and substance abuse recovery, Brookhaven Retreat emphasizes snow safety in February.

Mood, mental health and safety are closely connected. Women with mental health issues face different responsibilities regarding safety; illnesses such as bipolar disorder or anxiety require stability to manage. Dangerous road conditions can be a source for anxiety, which can damage a womans emotional health and recovery.

Because basic safety needs affect mood, behavior and emotion, they play an important role in recovery from mental illness. Stability invites comfort; when that need is taken care of, women are able to focus on strengthening other aspects of life such as nutrition, sleep hygiene and mood regulation. In order to create that comfort, women are encouraged to create a plan for dangerous weather.

Brookhaven Retreats Poncho Program analyzes 30 aspects of womens day-to-day life to create a healthy whole supportive of recovery. One of these aspects, safety in a womans life, examines housing safety, a safe social netting, neighborhood safety and driving safety. A safety plan for inclement weather helps put a womans mind at ease when snowy situations do arise so that she is able to take care of herself without compromising mental health.

In February, Brookhaven Retreat emphasizes safety in inclement weather in order to ensure a safe emotional environment for continued recovery. This includes tips for driving on ice and in snow, safety when shoveling snow and the importance of keeping warm when out of doors.

Safety is the basic foundation for wellness. Brookhaven Retreats individualized life realignment program analyzes safety as one of many pieces of the treatment puzzle. This is part of a broader security effort that ensures emotional comfort as women self-discover, process and recover from emotional breakage.

The Endorphins Mind & Body Collection Presents Fitness Programs to Heal Anxiety Naturally, Drug Free

Island Park, NY (PRWEB) December 24, 2013

Endorphins Mind & Body Collection has released a program to help people suffering from anxiety to calm the mind and rejuvenate the spirit.

If someone is suffering from a condition known as Generalized Anxiety and there are concerns about taking addictive medications, there are alternatives. Anxiety symptoms may include sleep disturbances, muscle tension, inability to concentrate, and uncontrolled worry.

The truth is that everyone has some form of self-sabotage that keeps us from deserved happiness. As a society, people must be more proactive and start focusing on their right to wellness. When the central nervous system is dysfunctional, suffering occurs, leading to anxiety, insomnia, depression, or worse. The Endorphins Mind & Body collection is a tool to help heal. Practicing these harmonious programs can mend the wounds that keep people separate from themselves.

The fast pace of todays world requires people to be mindful of their states of consciousness. Stressors in the aggressive environment deplete them, creating disease. Physiological and mental health depends on the ability to slow down and unblock. The key to well-being can be found in the body itself.

When exercising, the body releases chemicals called endorphins, which trigger a positive feeling in the body. Endorphins act as analgesics and diminish the perception of physical and emotional pain. Excessive worrying is a typical Generalized Anxiety symptom. Practicing this series will enable people to dissipate their fears naturally. Endorphins are released in response to brain chemicals called neurotransmitters and are manufactured in the brain & spinal cord.

As a wellness program, The Endorphins Mind & Body collection features four fitness DVDs comparable to indigenous modalities that improve vitality, health, and self-worth. Available in this harmonious series are: Indian Fusion, Affirmations with Yoga poses, Indigenous Belly Dancing, and Qigong.

Affirmations and yoga poses instill a healthy internal dialogue necessary for well-being. Positive self-communication and how people speak to themselves filter out negativity. Affirmations are repetitive statements that discipline the mind to manifest what it desires. A yoga pose is intended to increase the flexibility of the spine, a key important factor in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Indian Fusion are Mudras: choreographed hand gestures, with origins in Indian mysticism. When combined with modern dance and breathing techniques, these invigorating exercises calm the mind and rejuvenate the spirit. These dances require hand-eye coordination and stimulate neurotransmitters in the brain. In an age of over-medication, these symbolic gestures provide a natural way to affect inner states of consciousness.

Indigenous Belly Dance stems from movements historically used to prepare women for childbirth, in a tradition passed from mother to daughter. This tradition teaches people to embrace themselves, to respect their bodies, intelligence and trust their innate abilities.

Qigong is an ancient Chinese healing dance performed by both men and women that expels pathogens from the body. Qigong is a series of physical movements; a form of “medicine” that uses oxygen as food, fueling the body. In Sanskrit; an indigenous language “Qi” means life force, “Gong” means skill.
