In english Leva Sockerfri means Living SugarFree, and despite our name, recovery from processed food addiction is about so much more that the focus you put on the plate.
Of course you need to work with nutrition and how you compose your meals to stay sugarfree, but it is also about obtaining a sustainable lifestyle taking into account the fact that you are addicted to sugar and/or ultraprocessed food.
As we put it – Your addiction always comes first. If you fail to adhere to sobriety, everything else in your life will suffer the consequences.
To embark on the journey to recovery we see that you need to focus not just on what to eat or not, but also :
1. Physical health
2. Psychical/mental health
3. Social health
4. Spiritual health
The physical health is where you typically see improvement first and this is also what, together with pure willpower, often enables you to keep sobriety initially. BUT pure willpower typically lasts for around 90 days (3 months) – at its best.
The food is the basics and the foundation you have for everything else. This, though, only accounts for approximately 10% of the entire toolbox to recovery.
In our work with treatment of addiction and harmful use (emotional eating), we see that those who spend time and energy on recovery in all four areas has a far better chance of long term recovery, as items 2, 3 and 4 above is about what you make of your life, and accounts for 90% of your entire toolbox.
This is where you shall find your motivation and create the energy you need when you stop getting your kicks from what you eat. This is also where you find your strategies for peace of mind instead of handling your emotions though food.
A difficult task for many and why we provide one or two year treatment plans, allowing you to engage in your recovery on several levels in a sustainable way.
The treatmentplan is always individual but can include elements from the following selection:
- One week treatment admission in Sweden at LevaSockerfri premises (in English, Danish or Swedish)
- One week detox in Spain (in Swedish or English)
- Get your addiction confirmed with the SUGAR® diagnostics tool (great for acceptance)
- Kickstart your recovery with a biochemical repair inspired by Bravermans EDGE effect
- Get support and tools for mealplanning
- Hypnotherapy and RTT (Rapid Transformational Therapy)
- Coaching for a sustainable change in lifestyle through
- Motivational Interviewing (MI)
- Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP)
- CRA inspired therapy – Community Re-inforcement Approach
All individual activities are provided on-line through zoom.
The first 3-6 months is the most intensive part of the treatment. In the beginning you will need an extensive scheme to get yourself started on the road to recovery.
The second year is your year of maintenance. Here you continue your road to recovery with nudge and support from the therapists, all to enable you continue on your own with new programs in mind and body to keep and withhold a sugarfree life.
Coaching is planned on a higly individual basis – based upon your specific needs and will contain elements for:
- Relapse management
- Emotional management
- Meal planning and preparation
- And of course also motivational coaching
If you have a local addiction therapist able to provide parts of the treatment or you find local intensive courses about sugar addiction, this can also be incorporated as part of your personal treatment plan.
The treatment plan can very well be combined with 12 step programs joining local OA or FAA as part of your overall treatmentplan for recovery.
