NUTRITIONAL COUNSELING IN SOUTH CAROLINA
Good health entails more than just working out. The food we consume is the energy on which our body’s function. Which is why we always hear the phrase “diet and exercise.” Our South Carolina rehab concentrates our energies on the larger picture of health. This includes solid nutrition, routine exercise, and overall wellbeing. Nutrition is key during the initial days of recovery for two reasons: First, most in active addiction are usually malnourished. Second, eating important nutrients is essential for energy for clients to handle the rigors of addiction recovery.
There are several ways in which a proper diet and increased water intake can support the recovery for someone addicted to drugs and alcohol. For instance, we know through years of research that nutrition plays a key role in feeling well. Some addicts may even stop eating altogether for as long as they can. At the same time, others may develop an eating syndrome like binge and purge. Also, depending on age and health, some addicts end up with damaged vital organs. Bottom line, lack of nutrition or an unhealthy diet can harm the body’s most important functions. Couple that with the destructive power of substances, and it’s not hard to realize how addiction has lowered American’s life expectancy.
