Someone brought this to my attention tonight, a program in the Twin Cities area about eating disorders related to trauma: http://www.emilyprogram.com/

Yes...in many ways...

Stress from abuse leads to over stimulation of adrenal cortex. Then the resulting over supply of glucocorticoid hormones causes hunger and weight gain.

Pufferfish,
I admire your retention of medical terms.

Regarding the topic, it's one that....as much as we discuss intimate issues here on MS.org....we ignore as if it doesn't exist in our group of survivors. We'll even mask it in conversations and threads.

Time for men to admit that the symptom of eating disorders exists among us, it is prevalent, and it should be discussed without US bearing shame for it.

Hormones are chemical messengers within the human body. We have a whole bunch of them for different purposes. Sex hormones are just one of them.

We have a couple of stress hormones. When guys get abused it results in a type of stress in their body. We all know this. The stress hormones are made in several places in the body, but one of the main places is the adrenal cortex. That is a small gland that sits on top of the kidney. The adrenal cortex secretes powerful hormones that give our body the ability to react to challenges or threats.

The hormones enter the blood stream and go to all parts of the body, carried in the blood. They have powerful effects on our body. You may have heard of the "fight or flight" hormone. That's what we're talking about. Another effect is to cause our body to increase the amount of fat we store. This is the fat we are talking about.

The fat tends to remain even after the stress is relieved. It often becomes a permanent resident, such as in a swollen belly. Simply dieting will not relieve this fat burden. Exercise helps a great deal. Usually loss of this weight involves some lifestyle changes.

Has anybody tried this out? Does it work? Are there any negatives?
