Anxiety

Everyone has feelings of anxiety at some point in their life. For example, you may feel worried and anxious about sitting an exam or having a medical test or job interview. During times like these, feeling anxious can be perfectly normal. But some people find it hard to control their worries. Their feelings of anxiety are more constant and can often affect their daily lives.

Anxiety is the main symptom of several conditions, including: panic disorder, phobias, such as agoraphobia or claustrophobia, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), social anxiety disorder (social phobia).

I focus on the nutrition connection as well as on the practical techniques I have found that work to manage anxiety, from over 30 years of experience working with people with anxiety.
