Nutrition and Addiction: The Connection
Addiction is a chronic condition that begins in the brain. This is an important piece of information, as some don’t realize how closely connected addiction and the brain are. Addiction changes the way the brain works, including how neurons communicate via the neural network throughout the body. Once this communication is out of order, the brain has trouble telling different areas of your body how to function and how to feel.
During recovery, the brain begins to heal. Without the right nutrition, however, this process will be slow or even non-existent.
