Cravings under control

Kick your cravings

If you have ever been derailed from a diet or healthy eating plan by uncontrollable cravings I have a solution for you.


Or maybe you just can’t seem to stop at one glass of wine or beer? It is not your willpower at fault here, it’s your unique body chemistry that is off balance. Best of all those cravings become a thing of the past when you identify just what you need to balance your biochemistry.


Here are just a few of the causes of cravings;


  • low calorie dieting
  • blood sugar imbalance
  • unknown food allergies
  • fatty acid deficiency
  • hormonal changes
  • yeast overgrowth


All of the above symptoms can cause and maintain your cravings. It’s not easy to do the exhaustive detective work to figure out which one is a problem for you. Luckily I have done it for you by combining holistic nutrition with targeted brain supplementation. Using the latest nutritional software and a comprehensive initial health history interview I can guide you on the path to freedom.


We live in an increasingly addicted society. Harsh but true, and the worst of it is it is not of our own doing. We have trusted food companies to do the right thing by us and our families. However we are becoming fatter and sicker than ever. 


What went wrong? Its a long story, for a lengthier explanation go to my blog post on cravings. By the end of your first appointment you will have a plan in place to say goodbye to those  unstoppable urges forever.

Julie says.....

"I would start an eating plan on a Monday and go well for about a week. Then it would be as if something else took over! One bite of something or a glass of wine and I would just throw it all in and binge for days. It left me feeling really guilty and feeling hopeless. I had never heard of different areas of your brain that send out craving signals that are so strong it is really hard to resist. It is like you are addicted.  I really enjoyed all the quizzes and questionnaires, it helped me understand my feelings and actions. Thank you Donna for helping me to understand myself better. You were so thorough and professional. Now that I know this I am passing it on to my kids. The amazing thing is I no longer look for a little something sweet of an afternoon or evening. Even if my husband has some chocolate, I can pass on it! Amazing!"
