"I am what I am, and it's pretty good."

Body Positivity and Neurofeedback - a Personal Story



Growing up, Clara often heard, "You're so beautiful." What was meant as encouragement had an unintended side effect. Her looks and thin body became the core of her self-worth. She developed an intense focus on appearance, fueling perfectionism and an obsessive need to control her image, weight, and diet.

As she got older, had a baby, and experienced body changes, it became even harder to meet her own appearance expectations. She felt trapped in a mental corset, with a mind that criticized and belittled her. She fixated on her weight, her diet, and what others thought of her. The pressure she felt was immense, making her life unbearable.


Finally, she hit her breaking point. Malnourished and exhausted, she knew things had to change. That's when she turned to us for neurofeedback.

"Can you stop all these voices in my head?" she asked.

"Yes." I assured her.

Neurofeedback Changed Everything

Neurofeedback worked on Clara's nervous system, unlocking it from years of chronic stress. As neurofeedback taught her nervous system to regulate itself, she noticed big changes. The loud voice in her head that obsessed over eating and appearance started to quiet down. And, she began to feel more secure. One day, she looked in the mirror and didn't focus on her wrinkles. Another day, she ordered what she wanted at dinner and ate it without anxiety or guilt. These changes added up to a transformation where she stopped trying so hard to impress others and found more self-respect.

"I am what I am, and it's pretty good," she told me as we neared the end of her treatment. It brought tears to both our eyes.

The Power of Neurofeedback


Neurofeedback is a therapy that trains your nervous system to self-regulate. It monitors your brainwave activity in real-time and gives you feedback, teaching your nervous system to manage itself better. This reduces emotional flooding, quiets a busy mind, lessens disordered eating urges, and helps you feel safer and more secure in your own body. By improving your natural ability to regulate your emotions, thoughts, and behavior, neurofeedback promotes a more peaceful inner experience.

For my client, neurofeedback helped her heal from body image stress and disordered eating. She became calmer and more secure in her own body, allowing her to relax and be herself without constantly seeking external validation. She learned to love herself for who she was, not just how she looked. It was a liberating experience, breaking free from perfectionism and obsession. Now, she enjoys life, appreciates her body, and is raising a body positive daughter.

If you're struggling with body image issues or disordered eating, consider neurofeedback. Discover the path to self-love and acceptance that flows through your nervous system.
