|Have you ever woke up in the middle of the night and found yourself on the hunt for your favorite snack... almost mindlessly looking through the cupboards, even though you already know exactly what is in there? |
I'm sure we have all experienced strange cravings at times, but did you know that these cravings may have a deeper meaning and there are things that may even help to curb these cravings and get your body what it really needs?
Here are just a few cravings that may mean your body is in need of something else.
Chocolate - This could mean that your body needs more magnesium. You can get magnesium from other things such as nuts, seeds, legumes, veggies and fruit.
Sugar - This may mean that you are in need of chromium, carbon, phosphorus, sulphur or tryptophan. You can get these compounds form things like broccoli, grapes, cheese, and various other sources.
Bread, Pasta, Carbs - This could be a lack of nitrogen and you might do better getting this from meat, nuts, beans or chia seeds.
We all get those moments of “weakness” when we succumb to our food craving and ruin our diet plan or healthy eating streak. However, recently a group of medical doctors and scientists came to an astounding conclusion that the best diet is when we listen to our body’s cravings. Our body knows...
These are just a few of the cravings that have been tracked back to deficiencies and it may not always apply in every situation. In fact, sometimes it can be quite tricky to differentiate the needs of the body and the desires of the mind. Just because something is your favorite food does not mean that you have a specific nutritional deficiency tied to it.
There is also an emotional component that we can not forget about. Marion Woodman, an author and Freudian analyst who’s well known for her writings on addiction and eating disorders says: “The longing for sweets is really a yearning for love or sweetness.”
So, the next time you are craving a cupcake, it may be that you need a hug.
As you can see this is a very complicated and multifaceted problem that can take time to figure out.
Whenever I approach something like this I try to look for patterns. Is this a common thing, do I know what my nutritional deficiencies are and does this craving correlate? Or do I just need someone to be sweet to me?
Whatever it is, have fun trying to identify your bodies signals. The more you tune in the more it will tell you.

Yes you are right, there are a lot of cover-ups goin on not only with the astra but all of them. People from many different nations have gotten clots from the Astra, they say about 30% of the people that get the Astra get a clot and who knows what all will come about, in terms of side effects, in the next year or so after taking the jab. It hasn't been propperly researched or tested for saftey, they just through a bunch of toxins together and said here's the vaccine pretty much.@Jimi
Well this is interesting. Tonight watching TV there was a news cut. The Prime Minister and others said this. And a late night news cut like this is very rare here.
"The advice now is that under 50's are advised to "Not" get the Astra Zeneca covid vaccine and should get the Pfizer vaccine due to the small possibility of Blood Clots!"
Um.. .let me get this right. They say it's because just 1 person here got blood clots.
I say crap and its a cover up. Just in our town of just 7000 I have heard of numerous issues from the Astra. Even from nurses in the hospital I visit in.
Now how nuts is this. They are saying that over 50's should get the Astra! What the!.
Younger people are fitter, older less. So younger fitter dont get it but older less fit and up to the very frail get it!? That's insane! Are they saying it doesn't matter if we lose older people? Its gone from "its safe, its safe, don't listen to what you hear about Astra, we encourage everyone to get it" Note that same PM and the other pollies got the Pfizer not the Astra.
There is a cover up going on with the side effects, complications and deaths for sure from the Astra.
Im not an anti vaxer. But im not a dummy either. Something very wrong is going on that we are not being told about.
One would have to be an idiot not to think so in the light of this.
Hi Jimi. Good to hear from you.Yes you are right, there are a lot of cover-ups goin on not only with the astra but all of them.
