The Connection Between Nutrition and Addiction Recovery


Last year, my friends Muriel Angot and Andrew Lessman wrote a book on organic soups and gave it to me.  The recipes in this book profoundly shabby a approach that we eat, and so we asked a chefs during my diagnosis core to use it when they ready their meals.  For utterly some time now, Cliffside has been regulating Andrew’s Favorite Soups for Wellness and Weight-Loss to ready an all healthy unfeeling puree with each lunch and dinner.

A integrate of weeks ago, Muriel gave me her second cookbook, Healthy Veggies Made Delicious – Cruciferous, Leafy Greens and More, and we have begun to incorporate a recipes in this book into my daily diet and a Cliffside Malibu menu usually as we had with a prior ones.  So we figured it was time to give credit where credit is due to these people who have shabby not usually a approach we eat, though a approach my recuperating clients eat as well.

We can't blink a purpose that healthy nourishment plays in early recovery.  Have we ever seen a healthy looking drug addict? Most who come to diagnosis eat irregularly, and when they do eat, a food they select is discerning and cheap, mostly quick or junk food. Most addicts are not focused on sitting down to offset dishes with shaggy greens and uninformed fruit, to give themselves a vitamins, minerals, and appetite that a healthy physique needs.  That is why, in early recovery, one of a healing interventions we use during Cliffside is orthomolecular therapy, that focuses on restoring mobile duty by nutritive alteration and supplementation.
