Food and Anxiety Introduction
“You’re probably not stressed because of your circumstances, you’re trapped in this flight or fight mode because of your brain chemistry. If your brain chemistry is functioning well, then you will deal with different circumstances and situations better. If your chemistry is not functioning properly – then your body cannot deal with situations as well and thus they become stressful. Your brain chemistry and function is directly tried to your gut health.”
Brain chemicals (neurotransmitters) are made in your gut. If you eat foods that you’re sensitive to, and causing you issues – those nuerotrainsmitters will not be made effectively.
Step 1: Look at food triggers & consider doing an elimination diet
Step 2: Focus on gut healing
Supplements: l-glutamine, Restore
Step 3: Take calming, targeted amino acids
GABA (50-200mg/day) – feel more grounded, calm
Step 4: Careful and cautious of your coffee
Add quality fats – listen for more information on fats
Avoid putting refined or processed sugar in your coffee
Choose organic “clean” coffee – non-toxic coffee
Coffee resources: Bulletproof coffee, Nutpods, NuNaturals Stevia
