Eating Protein Saves Lives!

Hi. I’m Christina Veselak.

I have worked as a counselor and nutritionist in the addiction field for over 40 years. During that time, I have seen many people relapse and even die, in spite of motivation and extensive treatment.


Addiction is well-known to be a bio-psycho/social and spiritual disorder.

However, traditional treatment, including 12-step programs, ignore the BRAIN as a driver of the addictive processes.

They only address the biochemistry of addiction through using more medication to treat symptoms, but meds only tweak the brain – they don’t actually feed the brain what it needs to function optimally and they don’t truly correct the underlying biochemical imbalances.

This is like sitting on a 3-legged stool with only 2 legs! It doesn’t take much to lose your balance and fall over! Thus, the high relapse rate?

However, nobody knows this!!!

While the natural health community has supported this approach for 70 odd years, it hasn’t made its way into the general public, nor into mental health and addiction treatment worlds. Therefore, many people have struggled and perhaps died unnecessarily.

Why it matters...

A well-fed brain helps us make good choices and feel good. Low blood sugar can cause us to be irritable, anxious, or angry. It can also be a trigger for those in recovery.

Fight or Flight

Blood sugar stability is tied closely to our moods, emotions and behaviors. When blood sugar drops too quickly or too low, the body produces a large amount of adrenaline. Adrenaline is a naturally occurring hormone that is released when we think we are in danger.

What if...

Q: What if we don’t do anything to stabilize our blood sugar?

A: We may have a drop in energy level, feel shaky or irritable, have difficulty thinking, or be vulnerable to grabbing food, drinks or other substances that may sabotage our positive coping skills.
