Only those who have had inappropriate or unusual food cravings can appreciate fully that they do, in fact, exist. The food cravings associated with pregnancy are legendary: ice cream and pickles, and other bizarre combinations. Food cravings have also been seen to be related to Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome , especially just prior to the menstrual cycle. This seems to be a symptom of PMS. But as we have mentioned previously, PMS can frequently be corrected with the WT3 protocol. It may be that rapid changes in body temperature occurring premenstrually cause Multiple Enzyme Dysfunction and blood sugar fluctuations. Unstable blood sugar levels may lead to sweet cravings and taking in of sweets may satisfy the cravings temporarily. However, the body often over compensates to the sugar ingested which can lead to a subsequent rapid drop in the blood sugar level (BSL) causing the BSL to be unstable. In the conservation mode, to better balance the ratio between the body’s perceived increased challenges and decreased resources, the body can decrease the amount of energy that is used and can seek to increase the amount of energy taken in. This may also lead the body to crave foods. This also explains the common observation that the body often craves more high-energy foods like chocolate which contain both sugar and caffeine. This increase in appetite and increased drive to obtain high energy foods can be quite overwhelming or dramatic. These cravings are often viewed as personal weaknesses. They seem to be personal weaknesses the way it is weak for a person under water to crave air. Of course, the body can live without sweets or chocolate, but not without air. It only sometimes seems to “think” that it will when it is inappropriately stuck in conservation mode (leading to a perception by the body of having critically low resources). It is not extremely uncommon that patients who have a history of never even liking chocolate previous to developing Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome and who have never ever been sweet eaters, find themselves craving chocolate prior to their menstrual cycles and/or at other times. They may find themselves eating an entire box of cookies or an entire chocolate cake, even though they don’t really like chocolate. These cravings represent a definite change from before to after developing Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome.
