A very very big welcome to The Anxiety Summit, season 2, day 1!! We’re going to share expert interviews on nutritional approaches for eliminating anxiety, social anxiety, panic attacks and OCD.
This is what you’ll learn in the Anxiety Summit – how you can eliminate:
- full blown anxiety, panic attacks, social anxiety, OCD, phobias
- constant low grade fear, feelings of dread, the racing heart, the busy mind you can’t switch off and the ruminating thoughts
- the constant worry, perfectionism, procrastination, the who-am-I-to-do-this or imposter syndrome
The first talk is: “The latest food and nutrient research on anxiety, music and more” and airs live on Monday November 3rd from 9am PST for a 24 hour window.
- Why The Anxiety Summit
- New research on food and nutrients for reducing anxiety and depression
- Why changing our diets and addressing nutritional deficiencies is so important
- Music for mood and some inspiration for you
- Gems from each of the upcoming speakers
A recent paper in BMC Psychiatry titled “Lessons from obesity prevention for the prevention of mental disorders” proposes that
common mental disorders like anxiety and depression “should be considered as a form of non-communicable disease,” like obesity “preventable through the modification of lifestyle behaviors, particularly diet” and exercise.
One of the authors of the above study, Dr. Felice Jacka, a well-known food and mood researcher, co-authored another 2014 paper “Nutritional psychiatry research: an emerging discipline and its intersection with global urbanization, environmental challenges and the evolutionary mismatch” that stated:
“the clear message is that in the midst of a looming global epidemic” of mental health disorders, “we ignore nutrition at our peril.”
If you joined us in June during season 1, you’ll recall Dr. Jacka shared The Research – Food to prevent and treat anxiety and depression? She shared:
We’ve now seen data from right around the world right across every continent and across age ranges, showing that diet really does matter to the prevalence and incidence of depression and anxiety.
This is the ATA blog post I mentioned: Five Ways the New ATA Hypothyroidism Guidelines are Bad for Thyroid Patients
Music has mood benefits. I blogged about this in this Anna Clendening post. Check it out to see the links to the research and hear Anna sing.
Grab your copy of “Top of the World ” song here. This is your own copy of my custom song co-created by me and Amma Jo and sung by the lovely Amma Jo. I want this to be an inspiration for you! And as someone said during the first season: “a bouquet of hope.” Because you deserve to feel on top of the world all the time! Enjoy!
And stay tuned for my interview with Amma Jo later in the summit.
