HG: Welcome to Business Innovators Magazine…Please introduce yourself and tell us a little about you and how you became a Holistic Drug & Alcohol Addiction Consultant?
BK: Many years in The San Francisco Bay Area my profession was a nightlife and concert producer – promoter in the Electronic Music Industry. As many are well aware, in the entertainment industry, there’s plenty of recreational drugs that are of abundance as well as used openly and accepted. Having been surrounded by many of these drugs and alcoholic beverages on a daily basis I eventually became victim to a narcotic addiction (crystal meth) that lasted for many years. My name is Brian Kadmiri and I’m a 10 year “recovered and cured” narcotic addict that found my light when I was introduced to the holistic healing modalities of life. How I became a Holistic Drug & Alcohol Addiction Consultant was the moment I began to understand the importance and complexity of true healing. This journey of mine started the moment I found out that one of my good friends was diagnosed with cancer. Because we lived the same lifestyle, I too began to question my health, I had also poisoned myself. My friend being diagnosed with cancer was too close to home for me to ignore this reality in our lives therefore, it was time to begin researching how to detox myself just in case. Because I wasn’t a huge supporter of conventional medicine, due to the fact that conventional medicine only treats the symptoms of a sickness and there’s rarely any cures, I became geared more towards the natural approach of healing that prevents disease as well as cures it. I’ll quote Hippocrates “Let Food Be Thy Medicine And Medicine Be Thy Food”. Holistic Medicine was the key I found that opened many doors. Not only in curing diseases like cancer, in addition, drug addiction. As I began my research I found that Holistic Medicine is a method of healing that strives to achieve optimal health by gaining balance within the mind, body and spirit. I found that Holistic Medicine practitioners believe that the whole person is made up of interdependent parts and if one part is not working properly, all the other parts will be affected. If those who have addiction challenges in their lives have imbalances physically, emotionally, or spiritually, it can negatively affect their overall health. I began to completely understand this after many years of research. As a result of understanding Holistic Healing and how the mind body and soul has a symbiotic relationship, the quest I took for health and wellness, to detoxify myself and to eliminate drug addiction and the cravings focused on just that, the healing of my whole person. So, how I cured myself primarily came through the following holistic modalities:
- Orthomolecular medicine (in other words organic nutrition) which helped correct imbalances and deficiencies using substances natural to the body such as vitamins, minerals, amino acids, trace elements and fatty acids
- Plants, Herbs & Spices
- Frequency Healing
- Music Therapy
- Yoga and Prayer
Since I cured myself from addiction, along with the 10+ years of self taught holistic education and living a holistic life, I’m incredibly proud to say as a result of winning my battle, I AM now a Holistic Drug & Alcohol Addiction Consultant, Coach & Counselor specializing in holistic addiction recovery. I have simply lost all cravings for drugs and alcohol as a result of living this type of lifestyle and I now have the tools to share this with the world.
HG: So, what is one big problem you specialize in solving and how does it make what you do unique?
BK: One big problem I specialize in solving is getting my clients to understand that addiction is not just a physical issue. That it’s emotional, mental, spiritual and physical. Most addicts, because they’re so focused on the physical and the emotional pain and how it consumes their every thought and feeling, they tend to disconnect from the mental and the spiritual. Once I have made the connection with a client on a psychotherapy level, who completely understands how to focus on the spiritual and the mental, as well as the physical and emotional, a moment of clarity becomes abundant and true healing begins. How it makes me unique is the love I provide to my clients. One, if not the most important issue in drug addiction, is the lack of love many addicts receive from their family, their spouse, and or society. I make sure that that they receive the love they deserve, with no judgment so they can begin to learn how to love themselves while healing.
HG: What is the difference that people have in their lives after achieving the outcome by working with you?
BK: I experience a level of love, appreciation, gratitude, confidence and vibrance in their lives that I didn’t see or hear before working with them. I get a feeling that they’re ALIVE once again, that a new found excitement has entered their lives and they’ve reached a new sense of freedom. I’ve also noticed the relationships they begin to have with their loved ones, which becomes passionate once again. A true sense of purpose enters their lives, that may have been lacking when they were battling their addiction, getting back into society and functioning provides a great deal of self worth and happiness I witnessed. I see the light in their eyes and hear it in their voice.
