Superfoods In Early Recovery

Body Image and Eating Disorders

While in early recovery the body is enabled a return to a healthy state. Depending on which substance the addict was abusing. Researchers at the University of Colorado Boulder have done a study about the way the brain’s immune system and inflammation should be targeted alongside brain chemicals in early recovery. Microglia in the brain’s immune system that defends against infection of toxic waste. When the microglia is in action, inflammatory signals are released. The pro-inflammatory substances that activate microglia include alcohol and most drug such as alcohol, narcotics, methamphetamines, and cocaine. This response coordinates with addiction and this is why it’s important to take this into consideration in while recovering.

The first step would be to eliminate inflammatory triggers. These come in forms of gluten, most grains, dairy and all foods with added sugar. Instead, the addict can incorporate quinoa, buckwheat, millet, and amaranth. If there is a need for something sweet, reach for citrus fruits or use stevia. The herb turmeric has also been proven to act like cortisol, in that reduces inflammation and naturally increases anti-inflammatory compounds. Introducing probiotic foods will contain beneficial microbes as well. These microbes work with the immune system, cleansing toxic waste and reducing inflammation. The supplements, Vitality SuperGreen, Super Spirulina Plus, and InnergyBiotic each aid in increasing probiotics. Coconut Water Kefir and homemade cultured vegetables also make the list.  

Protecting the liver is the goal here, people. It is a well-known fact that alcohol, drugs and other bad habits will negatively affect the liver. Substance abuse will do a number of detrimental harms to the processing and the functions of vital body organs, but the liver is where most addicts get into trouble. Another recommended supplement is, Livamend is a formulated blend to aid in this process of eliminating toxic waste. There’s no way of getting around the fact that while abusing substances, the body as a whole becomes weakened in one way or another.  Restoring the body back to health will be a work in progress and there will have to be an acknowledgment of the damage done. Depending on how badly the body had been depleted, it will take to recover. Removing substances, why not attempt to reach the healthiest, brightest light at the end of the tunnel? For an addict in early recovery, there’s no better time.
