Anxiety and panic attacks are serious issues that have a huge impact on quality of life and ability to function like a normal human being. Sometimes there are real external factors that contribute to our sense of anxiety. In other cases there may be long standing psychological issues that need to be talked through with a therapist. While those are real factors that need to be accounted for and addressed, too often we forget to factor in the role of personal body chemistry and nutrition.
Imbalances in body chemistry that can cause anxiety, depression, panic attacks and a whole slew of mental/emotional health issues are super common. In our modern culture we often first turn to medications for solutions and blame genetics for our problems. While medications may be appropriate in some cases and genetics may be to blame at times, the reality is that nutrition plays a huge, under appreciated role in mental health.
In this episode Tony, Will & Kinna dive deep into the common body chemistry imbalances that often trigger anxiety and panic attacks. Listen in as they talk about how to assess your own body chemistry and figure out what may behind your own symptoms. We’ll go over bio-markers you can use to assess your chemistry. We’ll also discuss tips and tools you can use to help restore balance and relieve your symptoms naturally using nutritional tactics that are right for your personal body chemistry.
In this episode you’ll learn:
- Commonly occurring body chemistry imbalances can put in into a state of anxiety and even trigger panic attacks.
- Using simple tests you can run on yourself you can gain insight as to what body chemistry imbalances may be contributing to anxiety and/or panic attacks in your personal situation.
