A very very big welcome to The Anxiety Summit day 1!! Nutritional approaches for eliminating anxiety, social anxiety, panic attacks and OCD.
These are the notes for day 1:
Trudy Scott’s talk: “Why the Anxiety Summit? Stats, trends and gems.” Air time is Monday June 9th at 9am PST to Tues June 10th at 8:59 am PST
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
“You can and should feel on top of the world all the time!” ~ Trudy Scott, host of The Anxiety Summit and author of The Antianxiety Food Solution
Julia Ross, MFT – Pioneer in the field of Neuro-nutrient Therapy and the author of the best sellers The Mood Cure and The Diet Cure said this during our interview on “Eliminating Anxiety: Amino Acid Therapy and Adrenal Balancing”….
“On a scale of zero to ten, zero is not an unrealistic goal when it comes to anxiety. It’s really the human potential and GABA and tryptophan give us access to it”
(You can catch Julia’s interview on Friday June 13th. It will air between 9am and 8:59 am PST the next day).
One of the trends we are seeing: Teens are sad and stressed. Here is the Fairfax County Survey. Over 1/3 of seniors: “felt sad or hopeless during the previous year” + they “feel a lot of stress”
Another disturbing article is this one in Scientific American titled: Antianxiety Drugs Successfully Treat Autism
In this article in Scientific American earlier this year: Should Children Take Antipsychotic Drugs? the authors favor antipsychtic drugs because there are “no alternatives: for these kids,
I totally disagree and by the end of The Anxiety Summit you will agree that there are plenty of much better options like real whole food and nutrients and addressing food intolerances. Another one is getting kids outdoors. Here is the green spaces study I mentioned: Exposure to Neighborhood Green Space and Mental Health: Evidence from the Survey of the Health of Wisconsin
“Higher levels of neighborhood green space were associated with significantly lower levels of symptomology for depression, anxiety and stress, after controlling for a wide range of confounding factors.”
There are also these trends among college students. Here are some of the articles I mentioned: Anxiety rampant among college students
And this one in the San Jose Mercury news: Teen health: Depression, anxiety and social phobias rising in kids, educators say
These are the 2 events I mentioned, both of which are coming up soon:
MINDD International Forum 2014 – June 14-15 in Sydney Australia Brain Health for Mental Health, Concentration & IQ: Nutritional & Integrative Treatments for Children & Adults
Beat Anxiety Now Summit begins June 16 When I heard about this event I reached out to the organizer Katherine Johnston and we agreed to share each other’s summits. Do check it out! The focus seems to be more on therapy and behavioral approaches.
