Adam Sud: Transcending Addiction Through Self Love
I deeply resonate with Adam's message and am so pleased to have him share it through this podcast episode. He has struggled with addiction at points in his life, but he is not an addict. He used junk food and drugs to try and fix some issues in his life, but then he discovered what the real problem was. He saw his self-hatred and transcended to self-love.
Adam's story is touching and inspiring, and we all get to hear it here...
Some highlights include...
- How Adam came to be an international speaker and leader in the plant based movement
- How Whole Foods (the store and the substances!) have supported his journey to sobriety and health
- The lessons of self love that nature has to offer
- The power of hope and acceptance
- Everything in life is indeed a true opportunity to learn and grow
Hope you enjoy! Please feel free to leave a comment, rating, or review on whatever platform you choose to tune in on!
