When it comes to the Brain, anxiety is closely linked with the electrical activity of the brain. As electricity goes up, anxiety symptoms will worsen. One of the primary mechanisms of our patented method and protocol is its ability to Reset the brain’s electrical activity. We have billions of cells called neurons that act as electrical messengers to communicate and coordinate the appropriate action on our behalf. People suffering from anxiety often have an excess of excitatory neurotransmitters such as norepinephrine, epinephrine and most importantly glutamate. These facts are not unique to Lifestyle Healing Institute® as it has become apparent that numerous scientific articles have linked these chemicals to anxiety.
Moreover, if you have anxiety, you typically suffer from a massive depletion of calming neurotransmitters such as serotonin and GABA. This is due to the Mind-Body, specifically the Brain, working triple time to help resolve the symptoms. As the symptom, in this case – anxiety – persists, calming chemicals become exhausted attempting to balance the flux of electricity in the Mind-Body Ecosystem. Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs), like Lexapro, Paxil, Zoloft, etc., focus on raising the calming neurotransmitter, serotonin (by recycling), while benzodiazepines such as Xanax and Klonopin focus on the calming brain chemical GABA (by activating its receptors). However, SSRIs don’t create one molecule of serotonin as they merely recycle whatever already exists while benzodiazepines have been linked to a myriad of side effects and issues including a Harvard correlation with Alzheimer’s/Dementia. These dangerous medications are often used in many chronic disease treatments (including Lyme treatments); however, it fails to address the true causes behind anxiety.
In addition to Brain Chemistry, vitamins and minerals are crucial in generating essential chemicals in the brain. Correcting deficiencies and abnormalities isn’t enough if the underling causality isn’t pinpointed. This is why removal of fat-soluble toxins that generate neurotoxicity is a fundamental step in our treatment protocol. And why balancing immunity, correcting circulation issues, and balancing the hormones is crucial to helping someone get better. This is, in fact, why treating the whole person gives to the best chance to get better. Effective chronic anxiety treatment must include the chemistry of the brain, and the chemistry throughout the whole body. It is at that time that beliefs, thoughts, traumas, and more – can all be revealed and reconciled with a balanced Mind-Body Ecosystem.
