Meditation For Food Addiction Recovery

Mindfulness is one of the COR-Conditions needed for the brain to recover from
food addiction. Meditation is a mindfulness practice that is both simple and easy to
practice. Adrienne Taren, a mindfulness researcher at the University of Pittsburgh
says that “…mindfulness practice increases one’s ability to recruit higher order,
pre-frontal cortex regions in order to down-regulate lower-order brain activity.”
Engaging the pre-frontal cortex regions helps to de-regulate the impulsivity of
compulsive eating.

This meditation is designed by Jason Stephenson specifically for weight issues.
Set aside 24 minutes in a quiet place and connect with yourself through this
