Overcoming Addiction, Healing Through Nutrition and How to Become Your Body’s Best Caretaker with Adam Sud

Adam Sud is a behavioral wellness & nutrition expert, international speaker, and the founder and CEO of Plant Based for Positive Change, a nonprofit dedicated to advancing research and understanding of how nutrition impacts mental health and addiction. He joins the show to discuss his harrowing journey of addiction, various mental health disorders, overeating, and ultimately his attempt to take his own life, and how he recovered. We explore the true root of addiction, misconceptions around addiction, anxiety and depression, addiction vs. dependency, what happens in our brains when we use substances, the biological mechanism of compulsion and how to recalibrate our dopaminergic systems. We also talk about our shared experiences in recovery, how to become your body’s caretaker, how to find your why, tips for adopting healthier eating habits, how a plant based diet saved him from a lifetime of illnesses, the importance of gut health for overall wellbeing and so much more.
