Sugar Blues

Once a person consumes too much sugar they can over feed naturally occurring fungus in the body. Once this fungal yeast feeds it becomes overgrown and may generate a waste substance that can enter the body via the large and small intestine. When this happens the stomach may suffer a reduction in stomach acid production from the stress placed on the digestive system. Once stomach acid production is depleted, proteins are not digested efficiently. When proteins are not digested efficiently then the body can become imbalanced in amino acids. Once amino acids are depleted certain aminos such as 5HTP and l-glutamine can become deficient. 5 HTP is responsible for the production of serotonin which can assist in making us feel good and also helps keep sugar cravings in check. L-glutamine is responsible for gut integrity and the control of sugar and refined carbohydrate cravings.  Hence, once the proteins are improperly digested and aminos are depleted, then sugar and carb cravings can increase feeding a vicious cycle. This cycle can seem impossible to break. If you suffer from sugar and refined carbohydrate cravings you may have digestive imbalance that makes it impossible to stay disciplined. Impossible to find the path to overall health and wellness. There is help when you feel this way. There is a path to wellness.
