Fitness goes beyond physical exercises. Proper nutrition is also crucial in supporting whole-body wellness. There are several reasons for this, but the most important one is that the right nutrients support better physical health. This is especially true during recovery.
Another reason proper nutrition is crucial is that many addicts don’t eat correctly or hydrate as they should during the peaks of drug or alcohol addiction. Over time, this can cause imbalances and even diseases that place a physical strain on the body.
Although a healthy diet and proper hydration can’t reverse certain problems, they can help support the body and mind, lowering the risk that any issues will worsen.
