Your Diet and Recovery
Certain naturally-produced chemicals in the brain (neurotransmitters) enable us to experience joy, bliss, satisfaction, motivation, and concentration, among other positive feelings. They also play an important role in a range of body systems and functions, including movement, sleep, discovery, mood regulation, memory, and attention.
Deficiency in these chemicals has been identified as one of the root causes of addiction. Those who are predisposed to producing low levels will seek substances or behaviours that can provide the brain with ‘hits’ to make up for the deficiency.
The repeated, unnatural, stimulation of neurotransmitters through substance abuse or process addiction destroys the brain’s ability to produce chemicals naturally and therefore further fuels one’s addiction, encouraging the person to pursue ‘higher risk, higher reward’ behaviours.
When a person enters addiction treatment and is abstinent for the first time in a long time, the brain is not producing enough chemicals naturally. This may cause the person to feel depressed, irritable, or unmotivated, as well as experiencing intense cravings for drugs, alcohol, sex, or other behaviours.
Miracle’s diet is is a healthy and scientifically proven way to boost healthy chemical production, rid the body of the toxins, prevent relapse, and better ensure long-term recovery.
