*TRIGGER WARNING! We do discuss eating disorders in this episode.

On this weeks episode of Do the Work podcast, Sabrina is joined by her big sister Jaimie Bailey for a heart-to-heart talk on trauma and its manifestation in her relationship with food. Jaimie is a holistic nutritionist passionate about wellness and a healthy relationship with food and diet and she has her own indoor cycling studio in San Diego called Grindhouse Cycle.

Jaimie talks about how trauma initially manifested itself with her and her fixation on tiny details about herself. Her older brother's addictions began to influence her choices and her addiction to the high. Her household environment was hostile and lacked joy, so her feeling of joy was tied to substances. It also led to the avoidant attachment style because of coping alone and the lack of trust in others to protect her.

Jaimie shares her experiences with body shape changes in high school and while living in New York. She lost weight through healthy lifestyle changes, but her home environment led to her experiencing body dysmorphia. Jaimie realizes that her relationship with food has been influenced by her need to be numb and avoid addressing her unresolved inner child issues.

Her now partner, Ashton, supported her during her relapses of indulging in food over the years. Her discovery of a holistic nutrition program introduced a new way of looking at food as a source of anxiety. Jaimie reflects on how working with her clients is like turning pain into purpose, yet she sometimes feels like an imposter because of shame. The susceptibility to relapse is there; she had to figure out how to make peace with it all daily.

However, at the end of the day, her radical acceptance of her addictions helps her to be fully present for her clients. Her current approach to food is to consider all the factors that affect her relationship with it and whether each meal will provide her with the necessary energy.

The first step in dealing with a problem like binge eating is understanding why it is
happening. Once you have this understanding, you can decide to rise above it and prevent it from happening again.
