Did you know that in Traditional Chinese Medicine, the 5 tastes are very important?
If you crave certain tastes in outrageous amounts, it can be an imbalance, and can indicate a weakness in your body, or a nutritional need that is not being fulfilled.
Here is a brief outline of what you could be craving, and what Chinese Medicine teaches could indicate a weakness in that area of your body:
1. Salt Craving – kidney
2. Sour – immune system, liver
3. Sugar – spleen
4. Bitter/burnt (like coffee) – endocrine, heart
5. Spicy – lung
