Listen to your body…

Cravings are the body’s way of signaling what it needs. For instance, a craving for chocolate might indicate a magnesium deficiency, while a desire for salty foods could suggest a need for electrolytes. Instead of dismissing cravings as mere lack of willpower, naturopaths suggest listening to what the body is trying to communicate.

Cravings are also seen as indicators of emotional or physical imbalance. Stress, anxiety, and emotional distress can often trigger cravings for sugary or comfort foods. Naturopathy approaches this by advocating for a holistic balance, incorporating stress-reduction techniques such as meditation, yoga, or deep-breathing exercises, along with a balanced diet.

Reaching for fruits high in natural sugars instead of processed sweets, or opting for nuts and seeds rich in healthy fats and proteins, can fulfill the body’s demands in a more nutritious manner. The emphasis is on whole, unprocessed foods that align with the body’s natural needs.detoxification methods, such as fasting, juicing, or following specific diets, are sometimes recommended to reset the body’s natural craving signals.

Since every person’s body is unique, the reasons behind cravings can vary greatly. A naturopathic practitioner might use a combination of dietary advice, lifestyle changes, and natural supplements, tailored to the individual’s specific needs and circumstances, to address cravings.

Get some labs drawn, or go to a naturopath who knows how to muscle test the body. You would be surprised how a vitamin or mineral dificiency can lead to cravings. 

If you are in Oklahoma, I highly recommend Taylor’s Herbs located in Bethany Ok. By the way let them know I sent you.
