Taking care of your body is a key element in addiction recovery. Good nutrition plays an important role for restoring and maintaining physical and mental health in sobriety. Treatment teaches you to care for your body physically and emotionally by maintaining a healthy diet, incorporating exercise into your daily routine, and participating in outdoor activities in an oxygen-rich environment.
Holistic addiction therapy encompasses treatment for the mind, body, and spirit. Clearing your mind of all toxins allows you to discover yourself and while becoming mindful of others and present with yourself. With a clear mind, you can concentrate on keeping your body healthy and nutritionally well.
When your body is not fed with good nutrition, it becomes physically and emotionally sick. In a review on the importance of nutrition in aiding recovery, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) stated that people “with alcohol use disorder (AUD) and drug use disorder (DUD) typically suffer from nutrient deficiencies. These nutrient deficiencies may be complicit in the alcoholic myopathy, osteopenia and osteoporosis, and mood disorders including anxiety and depression, observed in AUD and DUD.” The NIH also added, “Poor nutritional status in AUD and DUD severely impacts their physical and psychological health, which may impede their ability to resist substances of abuse and recover their health.”
Exercise is proven to reduce stress and anxiety and group fitness motivates clients while providing the opportunity to establish new relationships. Mindfulness and awareness help to produce healthy habits that contribute to your successful recovery.
Nutritional counseling and dietician-designed meals provide guidance in making healthy food choices. Toxins are filtered out through healthy eating and your body feels rejuvenated. Eating healthy food reduces sleep problems and strengthens self-esteem, confidence, and productivity.
When you take care of your body, you become energized, well rested, and restored. The body can heal quicker with good nutrition.
