Nutrition Counseling as Part of a Multidisciplinary Approach to Dependency, Part 1


Nutrition in Recovery: The opioid epidemic has just been declared a national emergency.

Why is what you eat during recovery so important? Do addicts have unique nutritional deficits? Why is the microbiome involved? How is fiber crucial? Why does "disordered eating" complicate recovery? What vitamins, minerals, amino acids, probiotics, and EFAs support abstinence? Why does substance dependency blunt appetite for healthy foods? How is the brain's reward system involved? What role does meal-timing play in taming addiction? Click HERE for part 2.
