)-- Nutritional Addiction Mitigation Eating & Drinking (NAMED), a nutritional program that works with addiction and mental illness, announces that its founder and CEO, Dr. Keith Kantor has been elected Vice President 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 their recovery reintegrate into the community and become productive citizens.
“I am very honored to have been elected Vice President of NAMI - Gwinnett,” 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 that as Vice President, NAMED and I 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 and/or mental illness. 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 also uses specific menus to help with mental illness. These menus do the above plus add or delete the specific nutrients that are affecting the specific mental illness. The system works best 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, lower the relapse rate and decrease the medicine needed for specific mental illnesses.
