The Appetite Episode #11: Dr. Anita Johnston: Myth, Storytelling, and Seeking Metaphor in Your Relationship to Food

An Opal: Food+Body Wisdom Podcast

Dr. Anita Johnston joins us to talk about how to learn more about your relationship with food by looking through the lenses of myth, storytelling, and metaphor. Author of Eating in the Light of the Moon and Clinical Director of ‘Ai Pono eating disorder treatment center in Hawaii, Dr. Anita Johnston speaks to how the matrilineal society in which she grew up shaped her perspective on food and body struggles, the neuroscience behind metaphor, and how one’s struggle with food communicates the things a person sometimes cannot.
