“Anxiety affects over 40 million adults in the United States. Recent research from the American Psychological Association and published in the Journal of Abnormal Psychology, reports that more women than men are diagnosed with mood and anxiety disorders. The authors suggest environmental stressors may be a worthwhile focus for gender differences research.
Trudy Scott, food mood expert, author of The Antianxiety Food Solution: How the Foods You Eat Can Help You Calm Your Anxious Mind, Improve Your Mood & End Cravings, and President of the National Association of Nutrition Professionals comments: “There is a relationship between food and mood that many people are unaware of, and making the wrong food choice could certainly be considered an environmental stressor.” Scott, who has a nutrition practice with a focus on Food, Mood and Women’s Health sees great success with her clients every single day: “Food and nutrients are very powerful and can dramatically improve anxiety and other mood disorders. Two examples are gluten and caffeine removal for many anxious women.”

And continuing with the press release….
An editorial by Dr. Marlene Freeman, MD, in the American Journal of Psychiatry offered a very powerful comment on recent food-mood research. “It is both compelling and daunting to consider that dietaryintervention at an individual or population level could reducerates of psychiatric disorders.” Scott adds: “While I agree that dietary intervention is compelling, I don’t feel it is daunting. We simply need to teach people how to eat real food again. And the great thing is that these changes, in addition to reducing anxiety and depression, will also reduce obesity, heart disease, cancer and arthritis, and improve overall health.”
According to Dr Felice N. Jacka, PhD, research fellow at the University of Melbourne in Australia, Scott “offers a wealth of useful information for those who would like to try dietary and other lifestyle changes in order to improve their mental health”.
