Our Approach | Nutrition
Extensive research confirms what we have long known intuitively and through experience: good nutrition dramatically improves the overall quality of life, and nutritional interventions are both curative and preventative. At The Sanctuary, our organic superfood program is a core component in our clients’ journeys to wellness.
Addictions and co-occurring mental health disorders cause cellular damage in the brain, nervous system and throughout the body. This damage is evident in the body’s chemical, neurological and biological functioning as well as in the mental, emotional and behavioral aspects of an individual’s life.
Addiction and mental health symptoms also cause fundamental and corrosive events such as oxidative stress and inflammation in the brain, nervous system and other bodily tissues. These toxic processes essentially break down the body’s defense and regulatory systems, compromising natural restorative capacities and leaving us vulnerable to chronic and progressive disease. Nutritional interventions target these issues and reverse progressive decline, rejuvenating the body at cellular and neuronal levels.
We understand food as medicine at The Sanctuary, and how to facilitate nutritional interventions to accelerate recovery from addiction, co-occurring disorders and mental health problems. We view nutrition as a powerful and manageable tool for recovery and sustained wellness that is absolutely manageable and with the right education, easily under your control. Anyone can make significant and dramatic gains in their recovery efforts by adding the right foods and supplementation to a recovery and wellness plan. The Sanctuary incorporates nutritional science into our holistic addiction recovery program daily by providing whole foods, well-designed meals, superfoods, supplementation and nutritional education for a sustainable and life-long practice after our program.
A multi-disciplinary approach to healing at the Sanctuary at Sedona embraces the whole person with a whole solution. The mind, body, soul and spirit are addressed from multiple directions and on many levels as we help people recover from addictions and co-occurring problems. Nutritional interventions are a foundation of our care and can be a manageable life practice that sustains you long after you leave us.
