Sugar Buster!


SugarBusterR copy
Do you need help with sugar and or carb cravings?

Are you “hungry” when you know you don’t need food…but yet you feel compelled to reach for a mocha or a piece of chocolate?

These cravings are likely due to mineral imbalances, which can throw off your hormones, neurotransmitters and microbiota. These cravings may drive you to poor food and beverage choices. And once you start, you just can’t feel satisfied.

These cravings typically happen late in the afternoon and may continue until late at night. It’s also fairly common to experience this strange urge for sugar or simple carbs when you are following a healing gut protocol especially one focused on pathogen elimination like SIBO or Candida.

Working with a practitioner (like me) can help you get to the root of these issues for your specific biochemistry. Find out more with a free consult.

But in the meantime, if you want reduce those cravings, try this Sugar Busting Spray.
