I just remembered something I did/ still do to help get through really bad cravings! I bought alot of herbal decaf teas including "the good earth original decaf" tea. It is a nice sweet cinnamon spice tea. When I had bad cravings I made a cup or two of hot tea everytime! It really helped take the craving down a notch or more. Cinnamon is said to help the sugar cravings and to help balance blood sugar according to the american diabetes association. I also use a decaf ginger tea. Ginger helps with cleansing the pancreas, blood and some other organs according to asian cultures. AND, I use natural red raspberry tea which is a tonic to support the female organs and the thyroid. Red clover would also be good but I haven't bought that yet! I think the warmth of the tea and relaxing is the biggest benefit but I believe in the benefits of some herbs too and think it is possible they help me out.
