Symptoms, conditions and causes

What are some causes of anxiety?

Gut microbiome problems

Friendly bacteria in your gut play a big role in generating different nutrients for your body. Some of those things generated by friendly bacteria have a lot to do with normal functioning of your nervous system. Therefore, if there are imbalances in the gut microbiome it can cause anxiety symptoms.

Remedies:

  • Avoid unnecessary antibiotics

  • Avoid artificial sweeteners

  • Avoid GMO foods

  • Avoid consuming laxatives

  • Avoid foods causing diarrhea

  • Eat more organic foods

  • Take probiotics

    1. sauerkraut

    2. kimchi

    3. pickles

    4. kefir

    5. kombucha tea

    6. probiotic drinks

  • Consume more vegetables (7 to 10 cups daily)

Constant stress

Stress (mental and physical) can trigger anxiety symptoms. Your body normally can handle anxiety, providing that your stress-regulating hormones are working efficiently. When stress is constant or stress-regulating organs are not working properly, you may get anxiety symptoms.

Remedies:

  1. Avoid too much coffee

  2. Avoid things/people that stress you

  3. Take vitamin D

  4. Take adaptogenic herbs

  • ashwagandha

  • Siberian ginseng

  • Panax ginseng
