Overcoming addiction and finding comfort in discomfort (with Adam Sud)

Welcome to the second episode of the Brain Health Revolution Podcast! Our guest for this episode is our dear friend Adam Sud, who is an international speaker for awareness of mental health and addiction.

In 2012, Adam’s life was completely out of control. He was struggling with multiple addictions, serious chronic diseases, and mental health disorders.

His life nearly ended when he attempted suicide by drug overdose. He checked into rehab and with the help of his parents and by adopting a plant-based diet, he began a journey that led to a remarkable recovery. He is now a diabetes and food addiction coach for Mastering Diabetes, which is a program that focuses on reversing insulin resistance using low-fat, whole-food, plant-based nutrition.

He also works with Engine 2 and Whole Foods Market’s Total Health Immersion Team. He is an amazing force behind the plant-based movement and has worked in recovery centers using plant-based nutrition as an adjunct tool for recovery and relapse prevention.

He has also founded a non-profit that is dedicated to advancing research on diet and mental health/addiction. He firmly believes that the simplest of things, done consistently, can make the most profound change of your life and that self-love is the root of all recovery.
