Tightening of the chest
Quick breathing / feeling difficult to breathe
If your anxious feeling is not going away and affecting your everyday life, that's when we can help you.
I have personally been through anxiety several years ago and it was such a relief when I saw myself improving my condition as well as learning coping skills. We will look at your body and mind in holistic ways by taking full case history and 'dig out' all the possible underlying causes.
Here are some of possible underlying causes.
Possible biochemical imbalance is happening such as low GABA or serotonin. They are our 'relaxation hormone'.
If you are deficient in some of key nutrients, that might be where we need to look at.
Folate - folic acid transports serotonin. In other words, if your folate level is low, your serotonin level will also be reduced.
B Vitamins and Zinc - They are another important nutrients for our neurotransmitter. In condition of Pyrrole disorder, these nutrients must be corrected in order to maintain your mental health.
We absorb nutrients in our gut. Therefore, we need to make sure our gut is working fine so we don't become deficient in nutrients. Also, 80-90% of serotonin is produced in the gut as well, so our gut system should not be ignored. Find out more about Gut Health from here.
Food Allergy / Intolerance
This is another fact about gut and mental health connection. When we eat foods that our body doesn't like, our gastrointestinal system becomes 'inflamed' and it leads to reduce nutrient absorption. Also, gastrointestinal related symptoms itself may actually trigger/worsen the anxiety symptoms as well. Functional test is the great way to get clear diagnosis.
Interestingly, hormone balance is deeply associated with this topic as well. Thyroid conditions, progesterone deficiency, PCOS etc. By balancing your hormones, you are likely to feel happier.
Accumulated Toxins in Your Body
We will also assess your environment as well. Accumulated toxins affect our health conditions in various degrees.
