Involved in Addiction Recovery for over 51 years, Cynthia Myers-Morrison, EdD shares her wisdom gained from life long dedication to attaining and maintaining freedom from addictions (alcohol, drugs, nicotine, sex, grains, sugar, codependency, cluttering, and workaholism).
“I recovered after decades of painful indulgence with food and sugar in all ways: overeating, undereating, fasting, purging, denial, avoidance, distraction and desperation! Fortunately, I finally realized that my inability to control my eating was because of addiction - not because of my lack of discipline, ability or morality.
“I discovered a simple solution for healthy eating which changed my relationship with food, with myself and with each person and thing I value in my life. For 24 years I have been able to enjoy every bite I eat of my delicious meals composed of abundant food that is colorful, vibrant, and varied in textures, much better food than I ever ate before. I no longer suffer from depression and excessive anxiety. I no longer carry excessive weight. I no longer feel shame around my eating and I love the body I see in the mirror.
“Over the years, I tragically lost too many family members to alcoholism, diabetes, cancer, suicide and other food related difficulties, and I, too, was headed that way. Because I was fortunate to find a solution, I have devoted my life to helping others stop hurting themselves and end suffering due to addiction to food, sugar, and substances. I wrote the book, The FIX for cravings, developed the Genogram Discovery Program, deliver the SUGAR® assessment, and became a Food Addiction Professional to provide the knowledge, awareness and motivation for people to experience the following results from working with me:
