Many times our body signals to us, what is lacking within. Research has shown that certain cravings are a direct result of certain mineral and vitamin deficiencies in the body. Supplements do not provide the same healing as fresh organic food does. Natural sources of vitamins found in organic food nourishes the body whereas food devoid of nutrients take away minerals from the body. When we address a craving with the food that supplies the right nutrient, the craving goes away as the body receives the required nutrient. For example constantly getting a craving to have something salty, could signal a deficiency in the body. Knowing how your body talks to you about salt can help you figure out what you really need. Salt cravings can be an important clue or sign that your thyroid and adrenal glands may be in need of minerals. If you try and satisfy these cravings by filling yourself with table salt and processed foods, you will further upset the delicate balance within the body. However, if you choose high quality sea salts that contain an abundance of naturally balanced mineral you will quell those cravings and help restore health.
