Today’s video covers a topic close to my heart (and stomach): candida and cravings. 

Why do we crave what we crave? Even those of us who don’t suffer from candida related complex are likely to know the power of food cravings and how they can sabotage even our best intentions. If you’ve ever found yourself wandering to the refrigerator for that piece of cake that’s been calling to you all day, or if you’re drawn to the chips and snacks aisle in the supermarket when your intent was to buy salad fixings, then you probably understand how cravings can derail you.

But what causes cravings in the first place?

And how does candida play a role in our cravings? Virtually all of my clients who come to me for candida coaching deal with some kind of food cravings.
