“Beneath the emotional surface of mood and depression can be a raging physical undercurrent of hormonal distortions, impaired immunity, and inflammation.

William Davis, MD, FACC


Anxiety is a body’s natural response to stress. It’s a feeling of fear or uneasiness about something coming up. The first day of school, applying for a new job or going to a job interview, or standing up in front of a group of people and giving a speech may cause most people to feel fearful and nervous.

But if these feelings last for longer than six months, and are creating issues with an individual’s life, it may be a sign of a nutritional imbalance. It’s normal to feel anxious about going to a new school, going in for a job interview, or if a big test is coming up. In the case of anxiety, the feeling of fear or uneasiness may take over all the time.

This type of anxiety can cause people to stop enjoying life. In extreme cases, it may prevent them from going outside, showing up to that big test, or even showing up to their job.

If you are experiencing issues like anxiety, chronic sadness and hopelessness  you may want to discuss with our helpline and your doctor whether these symptoms could be the result of a physical health problem.
