What Do Your Food Cravings Mean?
Last month, I shared on Instagram about my major craving for raw fish. I ate some raw salmon and hoped that would suffice, but for the next week or so the craving wouldn’t go away. I found myself thinking of wild seafood all day long!

I soon realized my body was probably needing extra iodine. So I added an iodine supplement* available from our office to my daily consumption of wild seafood and sea vegetables. The cravings finally subsided after about two weeks. My body was obviously going through some kind of shift!

Food cravings often communicate some deficiency our bodies are experiencing. For example, if you’re craving chocolate, that’s usually a sign you need some magnesium.

After my “raw fish” experience, I thought it would be helpful to give you a chart for reference. I received a version of this chart while completing Nutritional Therapy School and added some items to give you a comprehensive list.

I always recommend getting your needed nutrients from whole foods, but sometimes that isn’t practical or sufficient. If you’re craving the same things over and over, and you’ve tried satisfying those cravings with food but haven’t had success, give our office a call and schedule an appointment with me.  I can help you figure out which supplement and food combination your body needs.

*If you’re wondering if it’s ok to take an iodine supplement, here’s a quick video to check out.
