What is Anxiety?
Anxiety is an emotion characterized by an unpleasant state of inner turmoil, often accompanied by nervous behavior, such as pacing back and forth, feelings of panic or helplessness, and generalized fear. It is the uneasy feeling of anticipating something that may or may not happen.
What Causes Anxiety?
Anxiety can have many root causes, but there is no denying the role our body chemistry plays. From the flight or fight reaction on our physiology, to more serious chronic chemical imbalances related to nutrition and environmental factors, the triggers and causes of anxiety are numerous.
Can Anxiety Be Cured?
Whether anxiety remains a lifelong affliction for any individual is based on many factors including psychology, environment, and personal health and wellness. This protocol is not intended to cure anxiety, but is designed to bring back some calming and relaxation to offset our societal need to be in a constant state of tension and apprehension. It will feed the brain some very important micronutrients needed for proper brain function under stressful moments, and may help diminish the triggers associated with some forms of anxiety.
How Diet Can Affect Anxiety
Many forms of anxiety can benefit greatly from shifts in diet to absolutely flood the body and brain with superior nourishment. It can be a challenge, but the body’s natural counters to anxiety require specific nutrients in whole food form. Niacin, B6, as well as specific organ meats and glands are necessary to feed your endocrine system the levels of raw nutrients necessary. Many butchers offer liver, spleen and hypothalamus gland from bovine or porcine animals. St John’s Wort, Schisandra, Damiana and Skullcap provide a wide range of phytochemicals including the naphthodianthrones hypericin and pseudohypericin (hypericins) known to have calming affects on nearly every physiology, anxious or not. We recommend daily 5g raw St. John’s Wort flower (do not take if you are taking antidepressants), 2lbs daily Schisandra berries – do not sweeten! We recommend daily consumption of 1/2 lb raw liver and 3g gland tissues or whole bovine hypothalamus gland. This would be a SERIOUS nutrition blast.
Now, how can someone realistically achieve this? The bottom line: if there is a nourishment problem in the brain and body of the person with anxiety, drastic dietary modifications can make a real difference. The good news is, drastic modifications are not necessary if you can concentrate the nourishment of these whole foods another way. In a collection of concentrated whole food supplements, the protocol below delivers the necessary aspects of these whole foods in a safe, sustainable manner:
