Relationship Between Poor Diet & Substance Abuse: Part 2
Certain foods contained in the Standard American Diet (SAD), such as sugar, caffeine, dairy, and gluten, can actually stimulate natural opiate receptors in the brain and may lead to addictive behaviors, including drug and alcohol abuse.

What are the foods you can eat to stave off this risk in your own body?

Dr. Keith Kantor is founder of the NAMED Program, which creates healthy menus for those suffering from substance abuse and educates them so they don’t relapse.

Dr. Kantor joins Dr. Susanne to discuss this recovery program, as well as which foods you should be eating and which foods you should be avoiding.
