Are you feeling powerless and heartbroken over not knowing how to stop people dying from addiction?…. ….Because I am!

Hi. I’m Christina Veselak. I have worked as a counselor and nutritionist in the addiction field for over 35 years. During that time, I have seen many people relapse and even die, in spite of motivation and extensive treatment.  Why? 

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!

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.

Our Goal

You can help us to get the word out. By clicking now to donate, you can help us spread this message in one of the most effective ways possible: on billboards! These days everyone is on the move, and billboards are proven to be one of the best methods of advertising ideas to a diverse and mass population. 

Our production team is equipped with public health analysts, addiction and nutrition specialists, corporate sponsors and we have great support from the scientific and medical community. 

To design the billboard and other visual advertising, we have a rock star illustrator who has done covers for Time Magazine, The New Yorker and Rolling Stone as well as major advertising projects for global brands. 

These billboards will make a real impact, yet they are expensive because billboard advertising works! Whatever you donate will go far in spreading this powerful message of hope. Feeding the brain optimally has the power to reduce relapse and overdose in some of the hardest hit areas of the US. 

Addiction is a chronic disease. Healthy eating, when used as a therapeutic tool, is a long-term solution that helps the body heal in fundamental ways. In response to the growing numbers of overdose deaths, we need to raise awareness of the power of nutrition as a first-line aid to prevention and treatment.
