Unfuck Your Body: Using Science to Reconnect Your Body and Mind to Eat, Sleep, Breathe, Move, and Feel Better, by Faith G. Harper, PhD
Is your body an asshole? Does it keep you up at night, crave nonstop
French fries and ice cream, and try to convince you that exercise is
evil? Does it develop weird illnesses and pains for no apparent reason
and run out of energy just when you need it the most? Does having a body
at all fill you with uncomfortable emotions? Enter Dr. Faith G. Harper,
therapist, nutritionist, and bestselling author of Unfuck Your Brain.
She explains the emerging science of the gut-brain connection and the
vagus nerve so that everyone can understand what's going on in your body
and how to make friends with it again, especially if you've experienced
trauma or chronic stress. Filled with straight talk and practical
exercises so you can reconnect with your physical needs and reactions,
work through body shame, manage illness and disability, and implement
small changes that make a huge difference in how you feel every day. You
are a whole person and it's time to reconnect with yourself!
A science- and solutions-based approach for teens to adults who want to
have healthy relationships with themselves, their bodies, and food.
