Anxiety and panic attacks.
Anxiety is a psychological and physiological state characterized by somatic, emotional, cognitive and behavioural components.
In the absence or presence of psychological stress, anxiety can create feelings of fear, worry and uneasiness. Anxiety is considered a normal reaction to stressful situations. However, if it becomes excessive, it can be classified as an "anxiety disorder."
"Abnormal" anxiety and panic attacks are often due to the condition of the adrenal glands, which, when fragile, overreact to stressors. In many, if not most, cases, nutritional deficiencies linked to anxiety and caused by stress are not addressed, which results in the individual continuing to feel its effects. Hypoglycemia is also a major factor in triggering and maintaining anxiety.
Be sure to eat protein at every meal. Reduce your consumption of simple sugars (e.g. white and brown sugar, honey) and reduce or avoid stimulants such as coffee. Eat at least 3 meals a day.

- Anxiety, like depression, is never 100% physical or 100% psychological. A naturopathic approach does not eliminate the need to see a psychologist or a psychotherapist, if necessary.
- Sufficient rest and daily right-brain activities (e.g. art, music, meditation or prayer) are essential as par of a balanced approach.
