)-- Nutritional Addiction Mitigation Eating & Drinking (NAMED), a nutritional program that works with addiction withdrawal announces that its founder and CEO, Dr. Keith Kantor has been elected to the Board of Directors of the National Alliance on Mental Health (NAMI)– Gwinnett. The mission of NAMI is to provide support, education, and advocacy for those in our community living with mental illness (a brain disorder) and those people that care for them. It provides support and education classes to both family members and those with a mental illness. It advocates for a complete system of services that help those in recovery reintegrate into the community and become productive citizens. Dr. Keith Kantor has been selected to speak at the Georgia National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) State Conference and Membership Meeting on April 30, 2016 at the at Mercer University, Atlanta Conference Center at 001 Mercer University Drive, Atlanta, Georgia 30341. This years Georgia NAMI State Conference and Membership Meeting has the theme of "Be a Georgia Mental Health Hero." One of the major points on the agenda is emerging trends in mental illness treatment and NAMED is considered one of the most significant and innovative cutting edge programs introduced over the past year.
“I am very honored to have been elected to the Board of Directors of NAMI,” said Dr. Keith Kantor, CEO and founder of NAMED. “The purpose of NAMED and NAMI are the same to help others. If NAMED helps just one person, it is a success. It is my hope by being on the NAMI Board of Directors, NAMED will help numerous people and those who treat them.”
Developed by Dr. Kantor, a leader in nutritional science, NAMED develops precise nutritional menus for those undergoing substance abuse recovery. The program is the only one in the world that concentrates on not stimulating the opiate receptors or even suppressing them naturally through specially designed menus. This lowers the cravings for the abused drug, increases the success rate and lowers the relapse rate. The program also lowers the inflammation in our bodies, which causes the insulin production mechanism in our bodies to work improperly. Menus are added all the time and research is constantly ongoing to find natural ways to not stimulate or even suppress the opiate receptors plus balance the body’s Ph to help prevent inflammation. The system works in a controlled environment in conjunction with conventional methods such as counseling, exercise, meditation, education and amino acid nutritional therapy. The concept behind the NAMED program is to increase the success rate of withdrawal and lower the relapse rate.
Using NAMED, once the patient is discharged from an addiction facility, they will be given a code so they can enter the website (www.namedprogram.com) and continue to get menus and recipes which will continue to lower the relapse rate. They will also have access to stable alkaline water, which will help balance their Ph and help prevent inflammation, which will also help lower the relapse rate.
With further research NAMED can now help those in Intensive Outpatient Treatment Centers and those working with individual Therapist's. Now NAMED can help those with almost any Mental Illness, not just substance abuse. This is done with specific menus that target the chemicals that are contributing to the mental illness instead of the opiate receptors. A simple example is for those with anxiety disorder, they are given menus that naturally have or help produce serotonin and melatonin.
