Leisa’s passions include many areas of health – from food as medicine and nutrition, to physical fitness and detoxification; from emotional release work to spiritual healing; these varied interests shaping her belief in the value of integrated healing on all levels; physical, emotional and spiritual.

The world of mind-body medicine is a fascinating one, and is an area that I’ve studied and explored in depth over the past thirty years. My journey into this world started in my teens and I worked with some incredible healers very early on that opened my mind to the power our emotions have to transform our physical body. I have been privileged to witness the sometimes quite miraculous healings that come from a massive internal shift, when a person awakens to a truth that changes everything they believed to be true. Although we don’t know exactly how this works as yet, there is definitely something very powerful about the process of healing on an emotional level as a conduit to healing the physical.

Just this week an interesting article was posted on called The Emotional Warehousing of Fat. It was one woman’s perspective of gaining of weight in a particular area of her body, that seemed to come on in response to the devastating end of a relationship. A quote in the article states: ““Unresolved or undigested emotions store in our cell tissues as pain, fat, dullness or disconnect.” This thought is very similar to the ancient Chinese saying “The organs weep the tears the eyes refuse to shed”, suggesting emotions that are not expressed, validated, understood and healed, can affect the function of  the physical body.

Whether it is purely weight gain from a metaphysical level, or whether the stress response due to the emotional trauma invites hormone imbalances that lead to weight gain, the underlying lesson we can get from this is that losing weight is not purely a physical experience where “eat less and exercise more” is the sole answer. There are many facets on the emotional and spiritual level that can impact why a body has chosen to store fat as a means of keeping itself safe. We have to remember that the body doesn’t make mistakes, and that gaining weight is merely a symptom of imbalance. Learning the language of your own body can lead to a state where emotional wounds are healed and the physical manifestations of disease or disorder are seen as messengers for the truth our body is trying to share with us.
