EP234: The Craving & Mood Cure with Julia Ross


We’re stressed, out of our routine, trapped at home and for many of us our CRAVINGS for sugar and other junk foods are at an all time high. 

But what if I told you that there is a simple, natural way to eliminate your cravings. 

AND that this strategy could kick your cravings NOW and also balance your brain chemistry to prevent future cravings.

It sounds too good to be true, but it’s not! On this week’s podcast, the one and only, Julia Ross (best selling author, celebrated pioneer and one of my heroes) talks all about her natural solutions for food cravings, addictions and mood issues of all kinds that she’s been using in private practice for the last 30+ years. 

  • Here’s what you’ll learn:
  • How to kick your chocolate cravings overnight
  • How to identify your brain imbalance 
  • The #1 cause of carbohydrate cravings
  • The link between stress and cravings (and how to break the cycle!)
  • The amino acid that feels like a good glass of wine
  • Why you can’t stop craving cheese and bread
  • The amino acid that feels like a warm hug
  • The amino acid that makes us feel calm and confident
  • The amino acid that helps us sleep
  • How to use amino acids for kids
  • How to eat to fight cravings
  • Whether amino acids can be used with medication
