(Savannah therapists) Low Country Counseling on understanding our emotions

Tuesday, October 6th, 2020

Savannah therapists counselors therapy Pooler Chatham County Bluffton

Low Country Counseling in Savannah

Emotions carry so much power.

The ability to regulate emotions in a way that feels manageable helps with daily coping and tasks, relationship stability, and a sense of positive well-being.

Mental health conditions, prolonged substance use, past or present trauma or abuse, and chronic stress interfere with emotion regulation. When this happens, the capacity to experience emotions can be diminished which leads to feeling “flat” or even depression. Or, our emotions could become intense or erratic.

If this sounds familiar, talk to a professional to help you understand what’s happening and how to cope.

Pediatric Dentists Savannah Richmond Hill Pooler

Below is a guest post from Kid’s Dentistree in Richmond Hill, a pediatric dentist office in Richmond Hill.

Best and Worst Halloween Candy for Your Teeth

For kids, Halloween is all about dressing up in costumes and trying to collect the most trick-or-treat sweets possible. However, there is nothing spookier than the cavities these candy binges can cause. Even though no candy is considered healthy for your teeth, there are some that are better and worse than others. To help you sort out your child’s candy bag, read our Halloween candy blog post.

One of the best times to schedule a trip to the dentist is right after Halloween. Kid’s Dentistree’s talented dentist and team of hygienists will ensure your child’s smile is healthy after all the holiday treats while also teaching them the best dental habits for a lifetime of strong teeth. For more information, click here!

(Savannah therapists) Binge Eating Disorder: Why Can’t I Stop Eating?

Monday, September 21st, 2020

Binge Eating disorder Low Country Therapists Savannah Counseling Counselors

Low Country Counseling in Savannah on Binge Eating Disorder

For those who struggle with binge eating, food can lead to anxiety and shame.

This eating pattern has many names: emotional eating, over-eating, compulsive eating, food addiction, etc. They all mean the same thing: that eating has become an adaptation to dealing with negative feelings and experiences. And then a terrible cycle ensues: eating, shame, and then fasting or dieting to “do better.” This cycle can feel lonely and endless. And hence the question, “Why Can’t I Stop Eating?”

The answer may be Binge Eating Disorder (BED). BED is the most common eating disorder, however it was only recently recognized officially.

Learn more about causes of BED, tips to reduce binge eating and 5 signs of binge eating disorder here.

Savannah pediatricians Richmond Hill Chatham county pediatrics

Pediatrician at SouthCoast Health Dr. Blaine Crosland says it’s still better to be safe than sorry when it comes to students who have been exposed to the virus.

“Information is evolving constantly,” Crosland said. “In fact, we are recommending that children who have been exposed to coronavirus, but are asymptomatic and test negative, that they still quarantine for 14 days. It’s a tough conversation to have and we understand people’s frustration.”
