As an Empath you really are what you eat!
A healthy body is essential for a healthy Empath mind.
Although it may seem tedious to be told the importance of improving the diet, it is an essential component to finding balance as an Empath and HSP.
The majority only attempt to change their diet as a way to lose weight but what most don’t realise is how food impacts certain traits of an Empath in the most undesirable of ways.
Most turn a blind eye to the idea that certain foods are destructive to Empath health because the most problematic foods have the most powerful emotional hold. I am not just talking about fast foods and processed junk, I am referring to foods that act like drugs within the body and mind.
Consumption of drug-like foods can make Empath life unbearable!
Drug-like, processed food, filled with chemicals, and foods to which you are intolerant, not only deplete the body but affect the hormones and endocrine glands, lower moods and, in some cases, cause severe mental disorders. They also make the Empath overly sensitive to everyday life.
The problem with drug-like foods is most Empaths do not realize how they are impacting their ‘Empath ways’ because their effects don’t always show up for 24 hours after consumption.
It is widely believed that if there is no ill-effect shortly after eating a certain food it is safe to consume. This is not true. Adverse food reactions may not show up in the body, or mind, for up to forty-eight hours after consumption. And even then, the symptoms may seem minor.
If as an Empath you find you suffer depression or become easily overwhelmed you need to look at your diet. Whatever goes into the body, via the mouth, not only affects the body but it also affects your mind and emotions.
Wrong food choices heighten all negative emotional responses and cause unnecessary heartache. Here are just some of the reactions certain foods cause:
- Increased emotional sensitivities
- Depression and low moods
- Mood swings
- Overreacting to other people’s energy
- Irrational fears and phobias
- Excessive introversion
- Disruption in hormones
Your intuition is always at work, behind the scenes, trying to get your attention about self-care. Sadly, too often, these promptings go unnoticed for the simple reason you are unaware of their importance.
Your intuition works in wonderful ways. When it wants to grab your attention about your diet, you may find yourself being drawn to certain websites, books or magazines, that contain information on nutritional health and wellbeing. For example: you may have had thoughts about eliminating refined sugar, and when you walk past a newsstand, you notice all the magazines with articles relating to sugar elimination, you may go into a bookshop and the books that, jump out at you, all relate to sugar-free lifestyles, or when surfing the internet, you come across posts on the hazards of consuming refined sugar.
Most Empaths already have an inkling of what they should or shouldn’t consume to stay healthy because their inner Knowing is constantly guiding them. Those nagging feelings, that something is not a fit, is the intuition at work trying to get the attention. But as humans we also have a weakness for the forbidden fruit and we don’t always want to listen to our inner-guidance.
If you want to see real magic happen within your life change your diet!
Foods that don’t agree with you are the foods you become addicted to or cannot imagine living without… and yes, they have probably sprung to mind upon reading that sentence.
You may tell yourself the reason you do not progress in life is because your emotions hold you back, but many of your insecurities, fears and emotions are born from chemical reactions within the body caused by the wrong foods you eat.
Once you embark on the journey of self-healing, through changing your diet, you will be astounded at how your life shifts gears. Your happiness increases, your energy levels rise, your sense of purpose becomes defined, and much more. Yes, all from making some simple changes to your diet!
If you want to see life transformations then work at making changes to what you eat. I guarantee your mind will tell you otherwise, but the easiest way to experience this transformation is by overhauling your diet.
