Top 10 Healthy Foods to Eat to Detox Your Body (Part I)
The first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem with alcohol and drugs. The second step is to seek help detoxing your body through a qualified outpatient treatment program. Depending on the severity of the addiction, the amount of toxins and nutrients you lose does vary. The path to recovery not only requires adjusting your mind and overcoming a wide range of emotional responses but also developing new and healthy habits.
In this two-part blog series, we will look at the importance of developing healthy eating habits and the top 10 healthy foods you should start to incorporate into your diet to help detox your body. Developing better eating habits takes time and should become your secondary goal, especially during your first 30 days of treatment.
During the first 30 days, your body will go through a wide range of withdrawal symptoms. You could experience nausea, headaches, body aches, hot and cold sweats, and vomiting. These are normal responses as the body pushes out the toxins. It is vital to remain focused on your goal to kick your addiction and remain sober and drug-free.
After the initial 30 days of treatment, the next step on the road to recovery is changing your eating habits while maintaining your sobriety. This involves adjusting your eating times and choosing foods to restore the nutrition your body has lost, and which it needs to repair damaged cells.
