We're joined this week by Art Adams who brings his counseling skills to The Prather Practice". In this episode, you'll discover:
--That unhealthy additions can include tobacco, alcohol, drugs, pornography, sex, relationships, or food (includes over-eating and under-eating such as bulimia and anorexia).
--How lifestyle develops. Do we learn behaviors by imitation or by genetic tendencies?
--The A.N.T. Problem (Automatic Negative Thoughts) and how it impacts your lifestyle.
--How our body responds to stored behaviors in our brains.
--Why our behaviors can re-wire our brains and affect the way we think.
--How to get past the "unfinished business" (like traumas) in our lives so that the bad does not have to define us.
--The reason why people gain weight back after losing it (yo-yo dieting).
--How to use replacement therapy to deal with triggers and cravings for addictive behavior.
--Until the pain of the addiction or compulsion becomes greater than the pleasure of the compulsion, we will stay in that compulsion.
--Why Dr. Prather believes integrating counseling services into his office is key to a holistic health practice.
