Alternative Therapies for Emotional Overeating

  • Hoodia — This much-publicized herb is said to be effective at appetite suppression and boosting energy. Its effects tend to be subtle, and it also has a good safety record.
  • Vitex — This hormone-balancing herb for women may help those whose emotional overeating is influenced by hormone fluctuations.
  • Ginseng — This ancient herb is said to help sugar cravings and curb the compulsion to overeat in response to one’s emotions. Both American and Asian ginseng are purported to be equally effective.
