04 Feb Restore Your Body With Healthy Eating During Detox
Wholesome Foods & Supplements Replenish Lost Nutrients
The decision to get clean from substance misuse was a tough one, but you’ve made a brave choice. In the coming days, the experienced staff at Ken Seeley Detox, 855.279.7452, will support you with round-the-clock monitoring and safe clinical treatment. Our supervised detox program, developed by medical specialists and administered by a team of caring healthcare professionals, will help to ease your substance withdrawal symptoms while you tackle early recovery lessons and begin to restore your health.
Alcohol or drug addiction hijacked your physical well-being—leaving you deprived of sleep and starved for nutrients when you arrived at our Palm Springs/Coachella County detox center. As you rid your body of toxins, you’ll be introduced to one of the cornerstones of recovery: a diet rich in variety and nutrition. Addiction robs you of vitamins and minerals and disguises your natural hunger signals. During detox, nutritional supplements may be used to rebalance vitamin and mineral deficiencies, while a healthy diet rebuilds your strength and reconnects your natural self-care signals.
Alcohol & Drugs Deplete Vital Nutrients
Alcohol and drugs make changes in your brain and other organs. They replace your body’s desire for nutrition with cravings for more drugs, alcohol, and junk foods—“empty” calories laden with sugar and salt but few real nutrients. As the addictive substances leave your body, you may experience withdrawal symptoms that are linked, in part, to your body’s need to replenish vitamins, minerals and electrolytes critical for healthy organ function and mental well-being. Depleted nutrients due to substance abuse may contribute to these common health problems as you enter detox:
- Vomiting & nausea
- Mineral deficiencies
- Vitamin B deficiencies
- Appetite loss
- Electrolyte imbalance
- Mood disorders
- Organ damage
- Neurological problems
- Muscle cramps
Supplements & Mineral-Rich Foods Rebalance Nutrients During Detox
Dietary needs during detox vary from individual to individual, depending on the substance used, the quantity taken and how long the addiction has lasted. To ease withdrawal and replenish necessary nutrients, vitamin and mineral supplements may be used to augment a healthy diet. At Ken Seeley Detox, organic fresh foods supply the healthy nutrition you need to minimize withdrawal discomfort, return your body to healthy function and reawaken your appetite for wholesome and satisfying meals. A diet of varied textures and tastes will help satisfy cravings and encourage you to make healthy eating choices. Mineral- and vitamin-rich foods that can aid in your body’s detoxification and restoration include:
- Dark, leafy greens like kale, spinach and parsley, which add fiber, regulate sugar and replenish calcium levels depleted by alcohol.
- Nuts, whole grains, fruits and vegetables to supply magnesium, boost energy, relax nerves and muscles, and build up immunity.
- Iron-rich lean meats, beans and dried fruitsto improve oxygen in the blood, increase energy and aid in healing.
- Potassium-rich foods like bananas, spinach, potatoes and fish to aid with alcohol detox & rehydration.
- Fresh water & juices to hydrate your body and stimulate your appetite.
