Sugar addiciton

Does sugar addiction go away if you can manage to wean yourself off sugar? I crave sugar constantly. I take chromium but it doesn't take the cravings away completely. Sugar and sugary foods seem to be my only barrier to losing weight.

Inflammation in the gut wall disables the immune system and allows a condition of dysbiosis to exist in the lumen of the gut (yeast, fungus and anaerobic bacteria). The clinical evidence suggests these unwelcome guests secrete a factor which makes you crave sugar, although that factor has not been clearly identified to my knowledge. They want to be fed and they are not passive in their wishes. People have decreasing immunological resistance to these life forms with age and naturally there is variation in resistance from one person to the next. The triggers which set off this illness most often are mercury and/or long-term use of antibiotics followed by leaky gut which is the beginning of gut wall infection and inflammation. Getting rid of them involves more than starving them out because they are embedded in the gut wall where they disable the immune system (80% of which is located exactly there). They hang on, and as soon as one goes off that stringent non-sugar, non-refined carb diet, back they come in force. However with detoxification from heavy metals, cessation of oral antibiotics followed by the SanPharma remedies protocol, they can be eliminated and the digestive/immune system returned to normal function. When this is accomplished fatigue and brain fog disappear.
