Controlling the Addictive Mind with Susan Peirce Thompson, Ph.D.

Can food be an addiction? On this episode of The Health Bridge, Pedram Shojai invites Susan Peirce Thompson, Ph.D. to discuss the psychology behind food cravings and how the mind can have trouble controlling them. Susan opens up to Pedram about the struggles she had with her own weight and addiction to other substances besides food.

I don’t know about you, but when I hear “gut bacteria,” I get a little grossed out. Anything with the word “bacteria” has to be bad, right? Wrong.

Aside from their name, gut bacteria are pretty awesome.

“Why are they awesome?” you ask. They are microorganisms in our intestines that help our digestive and immune system, says Dr. David Dragoo, M.D., a health expert at Money Crashers. In fact, we can’t survive without gut bacteria, says Kristi King, senior dietician at Texas Children’s Hospital.
