Legacy Healing Center Blog

Healthy Food, Positive People

Many different aspects go into planning out your addiction treatment plan when you come to Legacy Healing Center. Although addressing the psychological component of addiction is essentially in your overall recovery, it’s also important to keep in mind the physical component of it as well.

During the course of your addiction, you probably did not healthily care for your body. When it comes to eating, you may have decided not to eat because you didn’t have an appetite, or you simply forgot to. Either way, your lack of nutrition as well as the impact of your drug or drink of choice may have had severe consequences for your body.

Visiting farmer’s local markets in the Miami area or finding sober-friendly activities in the area is an excellent way to expose yourself to healthy food and people that may help you find food options that suit your taste. Although it may feel uncomfortable talking to these new people at first, taking that step can open you up to a world of options and opportunities.

Why Nutrition Is So Important for Recovery

Adjusting to consuming a healthy diet can help your body begin to heal from your addiction. During the course of your addiction treatment at Legacy Healing, we will give you the tools that you need to manage the cravings that you will likely experience and help you better manage your overall physical health.

When you begin to eat a balanced diet of fruits, vegetables, and other proteins, you give certain aspects of your body a better chance to heal. For example, your addiction may have damaged your heart, liver, or kidneys. In some cases, this damage is reversible as long as you properly care for yourself. During your time at Legacy, you can speak in greater detail with a member of our team regarding setting up healthy eating habits and even opt to work out with one of our personal trainers to help get yourself into better shape.
