Effective Cures for Anxiety

Anxiety is widespread, impacting over 40 million adults in the US. Approximately 1/3 of all Americans will encounter an anxiety disorder at some point. It is twice as common in women compared to men. For decades, pharmaceuticals were often considered the primary treatment option. We now know there are various effective approaches beyond medication, including diet, lifestyle changes and self-care. Anxiety can be caused by nutrient imbalances, dysbiosis in the gut flora, environmental factors and genetics.

Advanced nutrient therapy looks at vitamins, minerals and amino acid levels as an underlying driver for anxiety. Normalizing the concentration of nutrients is needed for neurotransmitter synthesis and balancing brain chemistry. You may know that an increase in norepinephrine (NE) can cause anxiety, but did you know nutrients such as copper increase NE? Having an imbalance in your zinc copper ratio and too much free copper can cause an over production of NE and drive anxiety. Dr Walsh has developed an innovative and effective approach  that balances these minerals thus relieving symptoms of  anxiety, hyperactivity, nervousness or irritability. In addition, restoring balance to these nutrients often results in dramatic improvement with ADHD, behavior disorders, violent behavior, and postpartum depression.

As many with anxiety already know, it is often linked with gastrointestinal issues. The gut and brain share an intricate connection known as the gut brain axis. This axis involves communication between the brain and the trillions of microbes that reside in our gut. When there is an imbalance in gut flora (dysbiosis), it can impact mental health, including anxiety levels.

A major advantage of using advanced nutrient therapy is the absence of the serious side effects associated with prescription medications. The goal is to develop an individualized treatment plan aimed at normalizing brain chemistry.
