I suffered from severe anxiety for most of my life. From shaking like a leaf during social situations, to all out vertigo and nausea in high stress work environments, to severe palpitations while chilling on the sofa (in other words for absolutely no logical reason whatsoever). I went through it all.
The low point anxiety-wise was when I was forced to give up driving due to increasingly severe attacks and what seemed like the beginning stages of agoraphobia.
A cocktail of medications only made me worse, driving my anxiety to new highs – literally – I suddenly began experiencing manic episodes in addition to the anxiety, and psychotherapists were flummoxed as to what was going on with me.
I’m happy to say that my life-long depression, anxiety and newly acquired bipolar disorder (according to the shrinks anyway!) all resolved thanks to the lifestyle and diet changes I discuss in my chat with Trudy Scott for her wonderful Anxiety Summit.
In addition to myself, and Dr. Ben Lynch of MTHFR.net who kindly introduced Trudy and I, you’ll find a number of speakers covering many aspects of natural anxiety treatment.
Do you have anxiety or feel stressed and overwhelmed?
Do you get panic attacks?
Or feel awkward or uncomfortable in social situations?
Do you have obsessive thoughts or behaviors?
Do you have that busy mind that won’t switch off, negative self-talk and/or problems sleeping?
What about emotional or stress eating?
Or do you know someone who does?
Or do you work with clients or patients who have these symptoms?
Anxiety is on the rise and it can often be completely eliminated by addressing nutritional deficiencies and biochemical imbalances, removing toxins, improving the gut, addressing hormonal imbalances and eating real whole food!
My colleague and friend, Food Mood Expert Trudy Scott, is hosting a virtual FREE telesummit called, “The Anxiety Summit.” She is the author of “The Antianxiety Food Solution: How the Foods You Eat Can Help You Calm Your Anxious Mind, Improve Your Mood and End Cravings” and is on a mission to share the amazing healing powers of food and nutrients for anxiety and mood issues.
Between May 6 and May 20, 2015, she will be interviewing world-class experts and opinion leaders on the topic of anxiety and food.
Here are just a few of the amazing speakers and topics:
– Dr. Daniel Amen MD, “The Brain Warriors Way to Attacking Anxiety, Depression and Aging”
