The Role of Nutritional Therapy in Addiction Recovery

One of the most important components of holistic healing in recovery is a healthy diet of whole foods, full of a wide variety of nutrients. Food choices need to have all the health promoting, brain healing, and gut healing ingredients necessary for promoting recovery and a sustainable healthy lifestyle. In Villa Kali Ma’s nutritional therapy program, our nutritionist and chef will teach clients all about what’s in healthy foods and how micronutrients help the body heal, through:

    • Vitamins
    • Minerals
    • Trace elements and essential amino acids
    • Phytonutrients
    • Essential fatty acids
    • Fiber
    • Antioxidants
    • Probiotics
    • Enzymes

When you nourish the body with the right food choices and proper preparation, your body will naturally heal and remain healthy if you take good care of it. Clients will learn everything they need to know about food and food preparation and will leave with some amazing recipes and skills to make them for themselves. Clients will be introduced to a whole food plant-based diet and the ethical and ecological reasons it is a healthy choice to make. Our nutritional therapy nutritionists will show clients how proper diet, exercise, and nutritional supplements can help to naturally manage moods and cravings and prevent relapse.

At Villa Kali Ma, we want the women who join our nutritional therapy program and recovery community to learn how to live a holistic healthy lifestyle and learn skills for living well that they can take with them and continue to practice when they leave here. One of the most important things you can do to promote wellbeing is to eat in a way that sustains your health and vitality. Women who join our nutritional therapy program will get an education in healthy living, then they can decide for themselves how they want to live going forward.

I don't believe it to be an exaggeration to say that Villa Kali Ma saved my life.
I couldn't have asked for a better environment to heal and redirect onto a path towards true living.


This place completely changed my life. I needed a drastic change from the typical recovery environment in order to stay sober long-term. I can honestly say that I love who I am today and I am forever grateful for Villa Kali Ma!


I am so grateful I found Villa Kali Ma, it has truly changed my life. Kay is awesome and the entire team who works there is absolutely amazing. If you need treatment, I highly recommend making this the start to your recovery.
