As the diet industry reached its boom, he recognized that offering purely physical treatments to those struggling with weight loss, ignored the deep mental and emotional connection that most people have with food. By only telling them to restrict certain foods and exercise in certain ways, perceived “experts” were providing false hope and inevitable failure.
Dr. Aidlin began to develop a program to address both the physical changes that people need to make to their daily habits, and also repair the broken emotional relationship many people have with their food.
We are told that the newest diet is all we need to achieve lifelong weight loss. But if dieting, food restrictions and surgery are so quick and easy - why don’t they ever work?
As a psychologist studying addiction, stuttering, psychosomatic disorders and neuroses in the 1980’s, Dr. Yakov Aidlin began to understand the connection between the human mind and body. As he worked in communities across the globe, in Russia, Israel and the United States he began to see clearly that regardless of culture or local foods, people were struggling with overeating and weight loss.Speak with Dr. Aidlin
The Aidlin Institute program has grown exponentially across the world. He has worked with over 20,000 people and seen incredible results. What amazes most participants, is not just their ability to lose weight quickly - but to keep the weight off. He works with individuals to heal their bodies and also looks closely at their own emotional relationship to food.
Graduates of the Aidlin Institute often choose to stay connected to the community through the Maintenance Program – a continuing lecture series that continues to explore ways of improving their health; both body and mind.
