More specifically, you want help with How to Get Rid of Cravings During Your Menstrual Cycle with ONE Nutrient?
so recently I had a question from someone that wanted to know how to get rid of the cravings during the menstrual cycle now they’re on keto too during in a minute fasting so they have no cravings whatsoever until that time of the month and they have terrible cravings what could that be now for those of you that are watching that are not on the key to a plan or intermittent fasting click the link below watch that because chances are that should handle the cravings for good but if you still have cravings despite being on keto and in a minute fasting it usually has to do with low serotonin okay serotonin is a neurotransmitter it’s made in the gut but it’s also made in the brain the location of where it’s made in the brain is in the brainstem the specific location is called the ref I Nikolai and this is involved in the sleep centers as well now it just so happens that in this little location where serotonin is made you also have a lot of estrogen receptors what a coincidence and the estrogen receptors in this location are controlling the amount of tryptophan coming in which is the precursor or the raw material to make serotonin now the most likely reason why you have low serotonin is that you have a low estrogen and there’s not enough estrogen to activate this tryptophan now some of the symptoms with low estrogen are mood swings as in PMS but PMS can also happen when you have high estrogen also headaches also depression decreased libido there’s many more as well now given the assumption that you’re not on a high carb diet chances are you probably don’t have a low blood sugar situation or high insulin but if you are doing carbs then you need to fix this blood sugar situation so if you have this situation low serotonin okay there’s two things you can do you can take l-tryptophan you can get it from the health of store or online and make sure that you take L tryptophan which is the precursor to serotonin make sure you take it on an empty stomach because this molecule is very large and if you take other protein you won’t feel any change because this is not being absorbed so this should always be taken on an empty stomach alright number two you can raise Astra Jim now it typically causes low estrogen in the first place is something else is pushing it down okay it’s going to be either cortisol from stress as an adrenal fatigue or it can be high levels of testosterone or androgens okay and that comes from insulin so we want to lower insulin but if you’re on the keto plan and you’re doing it rid of fasting this should not be a problem so the last thing you can do to increase estrogen is to take flaxseed oil make sure it’s high-quality but this can elevate estrogen to a certain degree alright so I hope that answer the question and I will see you in the next video if you’re liking this content please subscribe now and I will actually keep you updated on future videos

In this video, I’m going to answer a question I received about how to get rid of cravings during your menstrual cycle.
This particular woman is on keto (ketogenic diet) and is doing intermittent fasting. So, she usually doesn’t experience any cravings at all. But, during menstruation, she gets awful cravings.
So, what causes cravings, and what should you do about it?
First off, if you’re not on the ketogenic diet and you’re not doing intermittent fasting—you need to start. If you’re doing carbs, you need to take care of your blood sugar and high insulin. Cutting out carbs and starting on keto and intermittent fasting will help you get rid of your food cravings altogether.
But, if you still have period cravings on keto and intermittent fasting, it usually has to do with low serotonin.
Serotonin — Is a neurotransmitter made in the gut and in the brain stem.
The most likely reason for low serotonin is low estrogen. Some of the symptoms of low estrogen are:
• Mood swings
• Decreased Libido
So, now you’re probably wondering how to reduce period cravings, or even make them go away completely. If you have low serotonin you can do two things:
1. You can take L-Tryptophan, which is the precursor to serotonin. You can find it at a health food store. Just be sure to take L-Tryptophan on an empty stomach.
2. You can raise your estrogen. What typically causes low estrogen is something pushing it down like:
• Cortisol from stress (adrenal fatigue)
• High levels of testosterone or androgens (which can go back to high insulin)
You can take high-quality flaxseed oil to help elevate estrogen to a certain degree.
