Food Plays a Big Role In Healing
Addiction, depression, and anxiety over prolonged periods of time can cause damage to our bodies. Some examples would include gastro-intestinal problems, increased blood pressure and other heart related issues, muscle atrophy and back problems from poor posture, and nutrient deficiencies from a lack of proper dieting. All of these, if gone unaddressed, have the potential to cause more severe and even deadly health issues, which is why the clients at Red Mountain Sedona receive proper guidance on diet and nutrition.
We do not simply plan their diet for you and there is no weekly meal plan where everybody eats the same meal. Rather, we educate our clients on nutrition and health and empower them to do their own grocery shopping and cook their own meals. This way, when they are ready to launch, they will have the knowledge and skills necessary to maintain a healthy diet on their own.
Many studies have shown that nutrition is a key part of feeding the “addict brain” and reducing anxiety and depression. We teach our clients how to eat right for the rest of their lives. All meal plans are individually customized by our Nutrition Coach, who teaches our clients to eat healthy and make doing so TASTE GOOD!
Nutrition is one of the many variables we utilize to allow our clients to become as healthy as possible. When combined with exercise, yoga, and meditation and mindfulness, these variables work synergistically to help our clients feel their best and thus enjoy every moment of each day.
