Sugar Cravings; Sugars in foods; Why we crave sugar!!

Friday, May 26th, 2017
Good morning! Challenges with maintaining our weight throughout life are going to be constant and inevitable. Sugar is constantly in the news lately – yes, manufacturers of our food deliberately add the exact amount which makes us addicted! No wonder it’s so challenging.
Diabetes in Australia is increasing at such a rapid rate that it’s estimated that 50% of us will have dementia by the age of 50within 25years – and diabetes is a major cause.  This is ridiculous!  We’ve modified our food, DNA and genes so much these days our cells become primed to develop chronic illness such as diabetes, cancer and heart disease so much earlier in our bodies than even 30 years ago.
May favourite 3 products for sugar cravings are:
1. Bactrex and Ultra Flora SB Dysbiosis – for underlying candida, fungus, bacterial infections that make us want to eat sweets (they love a sweet, acidic environment!) 3-6 daily depending on the severity and combination of the infections.
2. Gymnema tablets – known as ‘the sugar killer’ in Indian – it’s a herb which over a period of time makes our tongue need less sweet. Long-term (2 year) studies have shown pancreatic cells regnerating with gymnema use. 4-6 daily when sugar cravings are bad.
3. Resist X – definitely a favourite – contains herbs and nutrients which reduce insulin resistance (pre-diabetes); increase cellular energy and work on eating away our tummy fat. 2-6 daily depending on energy levels, tummy fat stubborness, sugar cravings.

Natural Supplements for Depression, Cravings and Mood Disorders…

Supplements For Depression and Mood Disorders…
How many of us choose carbs and sugars because of our moods?  Our weight spirals out of control??  We end up feeling anxious, stressed, angry, depressed…
Can we support our neurological function with natural supplements, or do we need to take ‘chemicals’ to sort our out ‘chemical imbalances’. Firstly, the chemical imbalances that are being discussed are hormones like dopamine and seratonin…  Did you know that we make these ‘feel good’ hormones with nutrients we get from fruits, vegies, proteins, eggs, raw nuts and seeds?  Gee, a good diet – you may be thinking? Whereas, when we eat carbs and sugars we create a need for more carbs and sugars.  The breakdown of these foods create inflammation, increase our likelyhood of developing (and growing) parasites, candida, fungus, dodgy bacterial infections – all of which like a sweet, acidic environment to live in.  They love it when we eat sweets!!!
So, we’ve all heard about chromium for blood sugar – at a basic level chromium supports balancing blood sugar – but what causes the blood sugar problems?  Did you know that our bugs – parasites, bacteria, fungus, candida – all release enzymes that make us crave sugar?  Cheeky little blighters, aren’t they?
So, some of the supplements I love for balancing our hormones are:
1.  Eagle Chrome, Metagenics Resist X, Insulex, Energy X:  All of these support balancing the blood sugar.  Resist X and Insulex contain ingredients which reverse insulin resistance, a condition happening in the core of each cell in our body; Energy X is a powder with liver and thyroid support, energy support, blood sugar balancing and detoxification support.
2.  Relaxan, Resilian, Stressan:  These 3 metagenics formulas are fabulous for balancing moods.  Relaxan for PMT, irritability and stress created by female hormonal imbalances.  Stressan is for full-on anger, excess ‘chi’ they call it in Chinese medicine, great for sleep disorders and stress, has a little gut and liver support as well.  Resilian is for teariness.  Unable to hold in your emotions.  Emotional resiliance.  All of these formulas support adrenal exhaustion; nerve disorders; increase dopamine and feel-good hormones and are safe to take with medications such as anti-depressants, anti-anxiety medication under supervision from your naturopath.
3.  Proxan and Neurolift:  both of these formulas raise serotonin.  Proxan is a formula we use to support people reducing their doses (slowly and carefully) and increasing natural support for balancing the nervous system.  Neurolift is a combination of herbs and nutrients for the thyroid and nervous system, particularly increasing serotonin and thyroxin.
4.  EPA (as in fish oils):  EPA is a nutrient found in fish oils.  When fully cleansed (be very, very careful of brands) and when we’re taking 2000mg daily of the EPA component in fish oil, it raises serotonin safely and easily.  Best in a liquid form such as Metagenics or BioCeuticals.  Dose is key.
5.  Gut Support:  We make a massive amountof hormones in the gut.  Dopamine and Serotonin (feel good hormones), Oestrogen are found to be released from the small intestines.  Take care of your gut.  If it is playing up, find out what is wrong (possibly best through your naturopath as the gut is one of our specialties) and fix it.  Without sorting out the gut, it’s really difficult to balance moods and hormones long-term.
Good luck!!
