Food Addiction: The Problem and the Solution podcast sponsored by the International School for Food Addiction Counseling and Treatment (INFACT School) is proud to announce the first episode entitled, Food Addiction Is A Brain Disease.
In this podcast, host Susan Branscome, interviews Director and Founder of The International School For Food Addiction Counseling And Treatment (INFACT School), Esther Helga Gudmundsdottir. Revealed during the moving discussion is how the medical community focuses on the symptoms of food addiction, like obesity and related complications, without effectively addressing the source of the problem which is that food addiction is a brain disease.
“The science is clear that food addicts are chemically addicted to foods such as sugar, flour and other trigger/binge foods and once ingested, it initiates an addictive response causing them to want more. Abstinent food plans and recovery programs are the solutions for food addicts,” asserts Esther Helga Gudmundsdottir, a pioneer in the field of food addiction treatment. Herself a recovering food addict, she opened one of the first food addiction treatment programs in the world. Esther realized that not only the patients needed help with food addiction but also the professionals.
“Food Addiction: The Problem and The Solution” podcast is now available on all major podcast platforms, including Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Amazon, Stitcher, and Google Podcasts.
