What do sugar cravings and insomnia have in common?

Updated: Mar 23

Do you crave sugar?

Your sweet tooth is a sign that your gut is unhealthy! It’s not your fault! It's not because you don't have enough will power.

You see, parasites, bacteria and fungus thrive on sugar. It’s their superfood. So they keep screaming at you to eat that chocolate bar, doughnut and ice cream. They want food and they want it now!

Sugar cravings tell us that your gut is out of balance.

And your gut imbalance is what’s causing your insomnia, too. Those lovely creatures in your gut that thrive on sugar also wake you up at night. They create lots of inflammation and so your body releases cortisol to combat that inflammation. When that happens at night, cortisol wakes you up and makes it hard to fall back asleep.

The good news is that you can rebalance your gut and eliminate sugar cravings and insomnia for good! Want to know how? The first step is to book a call with me.
