Here we are … standing at the door of this year’s holiday season. Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s … food, food, food. Good times.

Do you find the more you eat of a certain dish (for example, your favorite holiday dessert), the more you want of it? Maybe the holiday season has nothing to do with your cravings; maybe you just really want chocolate or chips or pasta any time.

Do you ever wonder why we have food cravings? Do you ever wonder if there’s anything to be done about them?

BTW: For me, it’s always chocolate. When I’m being good (sort of have to do this most of the time but hey – I’m only human), I grab the supplement and take it first. Which supplement? Read on…

Food Cravings

If you’re running low on any of the supplements listed above, just click on the info or go to my professional practitioner account at Full Script. (I love Full Script because they provide top notch supplements and make it easy to order).

Additional Info

In my next blog, we’ll talk about what those chocolate cravings mean (because it may be more than just a magnesium deficiency).

Another Way to Get Through the Holidays

It’s been a stressful year or two for all of us. So while you’re chasing down the perfect gift, don’t forget about the gift of massage. Schedule your relaxation or pain relief session today.
