To visually and objectively show the over-activity of electricity in a patient suffering from anxiety from a neurological perspective, please see the brain scan below; it represents a scan of an overactive brain as compared to a normal brain. Red means moderately increased activity and white means extremely increased electrical activity. Some of the brain regions play a tremendous role in overactive disorders such as anxiety, insomnia, and fibromyalgia. It’s difficult to overpower this type of brain without an adequate amount of biochemical and physical tools in order to heal anxiety symptoms quickly, safely and without drugs.
Natural Treatment for Anxiety
At Lifestyle Healing Institute® we unlock specific mechanistic biopatterns in your brain and body, through the use of our All-Natural method and protocols. We accomplish this by using both subjective and objective patient cues and data from thousands of various assays. Through the correlation of neurotransmitters, amino acids, immune markers, circulatory signals, hormones, and environmental factors, we utilize the biopatterns in our All Natural treatment for anxiety. There are many overlying themes among all disorders and depending on the severity, anxiety can be a crippling ailment.
Anxiety is usually accompanied by other disorders such as insomnia and fibromyalgia, especially in women who tend to experience “new” symptoms of anxiety and insomnia because these disorders are also linked to imbalances in the hormonal system.
As progesterone and estradiol become disrupted, so does the brain’s electrical activity. Progesterone activates chemicals that calm the brain while estradiol usually activates chemicals that stimulate the brain. Moreover, estradiol is crucial in bone remodeling and its suppression has been attributed to osteoporosis, osteopenia, as well as kidney stones. Because autoimmunity increases with age, a subsequent massive hormonal dropout causes autoimmunity to become even more extensive. The aforementioned, as well as numerous additional entities, contribute to anxiety. It’s never just one thing.
Many individuals are plagued with the time consumed from this disorder, and it’s apparent that individuals with anxiety, feel as though their brains and bodies are on two separate planes. The brain recognizes the body as a dynamic system of relations and any disorder is merely a disruption in the order; and anxiety is no different.
However, anxiety is deeply rooted in the brain. Our 100% All Natural method and treatment for anxiety focuses on every bodily system acting as one unit, thus, we restore the brain’s electrical activity, we replenish the immune system, and we restore blood flow to facilitate total body healing. Below is a list of symptoms that individuals suffering from anxiety tend to exhibit.
Quantitative and Objective Symptoms of Anxiety
- Excess Excitatory Neurotransmitters
- Suppressed Inhibitory (Calming) Neurotransmitters
- Overactive Anterior Cingulate Gyrus (conflict, rational cognitive center of brain)
- Overactive Limbic System (emotional center of brain)
- Suppressed Magnesium
- Suppressed Potassium
- Suppressed Hormones – Especially Sex Hormones
- Hormonal Issues
- Numerous GI symptoms – Acid Reflux, Poor Digestion, Malabsorption
- Dysregulated Parietal Lobe
Subjective Symptoms of Anxiety
- Poor Sleep – especially deep sleep (rapid eye movement (REM) sleep)
- Ensure their Car/House is Locked (even though they usually know it is)
- Brain/Body on Two Pages – brain is electrified, body seemingly exhausted
- Inability to shut off the brain – mind races
- Worry about Grades/Performance – Before, During, and After (or combination)
- Do Not Favor Change
- Inability to See Options
- Stubbornness – Inability to Move on
- Tend to Predict the Negative – Issues on the future
- Avoidance of Social Situations
- Overreact at Times
- Food Intolerances
- Can be Accompanied by Other Overactive Disorders –Insomnia, Fibromyalgia– Many similar symptoms are seen among overactive disorders.
Lifestyle Healing Institute® treats these symptoms quickly, safely & without drugs.
One of the primary mechanisms of our method and protocol is its ability to reset the brain’s electrical activity. People suffering from anxiety have an excess of excitatory neurotransmitters such as norepinephrine, epinephrine, and most importantly glutamate. It is puzzling why no one focuses on the excitatory chemicals in the brain, as it has become apparent that numerous scientific articles have linked these chemicals to anxiety.
Moreover, individuals also suffer from a massive depletion of calming neurotransmitters. Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs), like Lexapro, Paxil, Zoloft, etc., focus on raising the calming neurotransmitter, serotonin, while benzodiazepines such as Xanax and Klonopin focus on the calming brain chemical GABA. However, SSRIs don’t create one molecule of serotonin as they merely recycle whatever already exists.
Although effective in the short term, these drugs serve as symptom maskers, as they’re rendered ineffective as a long term causality solution. However, mechanistically, focusing on calming chemicals is vital in restoring the brain’s electrical activity. We restore brain chemicals safely, naturally, and back to their proper therapeutic biochemical quantity without using prescription medications.
The brain has numerous regions of interest both mechanistically and systematically, and each biomarker has a specific relation in maintaining the brain and body’s dynamic equilibrium. Although functioning as a whole unit, these regions can be broken down to help explain anxiety. In certain regions the brain can be both overactive and underactive simultaneously, however overall anxiety tends to be overactive which accounts for various symptoms associated with anxiety.
Our natural neurological holistic therapy assesses and addresses the brain and body from all angles possible. We restore the brain’s electrical activity, by lowering your excitatory chemicals, by raising your calming chemicals, by removing fat soluble toxins, as we replenish nutritional deficiencies.
We restore proper immune function and blood flow as well as rebuild the intricate balance between the hypothalamus and the pituitary gland. Many are aware of nutrition’s role in health, but fail to correlate its importance in the brain. 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.
These mechanisms give you the tools necessary to overcome your anxiety. Everyone knows exercise tends to reduce anxiety symptoms; however, how can you be expected to exercise when you spend countless hours trying to get through the day? We lower the threshold of incidence, thus allowing you to add activities such as diet, exercise, yoga, etc. to your everyday life. Please see Brain Chemistry and Brain Chemistry Treatment for more details on the educational aspect of Brain Chemistry and their related disorders.
We won’t spend much time delving into the archaic views of western medicine; however, it’s important to note why we developed our protocols.
The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, DSM-5, is the widely accepted diagnostic and therapeutic approach used by physicians and psychologists specializing in “mental disorders”. It discusses how anxiety can be grouped into subcategories based on symptoms.
The bottom line is – these approaches only further contribute to the symptom based system we’re all familiar with.
How can we get to the Fundamental Categories of Medicine if we’re continually creating more categories? Simple brain scans reveal that all subcategories of anxiety look painstakingly similar – they’re all overactive. In other words, the electrical activity in the brain is too high.
This occurs, not only with anxiety, but with insomnia, fibromyalgia, idiopathic seizures, bipolar II disorder, chronic migraines, and more. One could argue that the Fundamental Categories of Medicine in anxiety is a disruption in Brain Chemistry, an overactive brain.
Because the DSM-5 manual refers to these ailments as “mental disorders”, it implies that the patient is at fault, as if anxiety is an issue of moral character with no biochemical basis whatsoever. Patients accept responsibility for their health issues, but healing is a team effort. Anxiety is a dynamic abnormality with a multitude of physical and psychological issues, however, individuals suffering from anxiety don’t have the tools needed to overcome the ailment – to lower the threshold of incidence.
This is the 5th edition of the DSM-5 manual, and it perplexes us how people suffering from disorders such as anxiety, depression, and insomnia are continuing to rise each year, yet they keep “perfecting” the manual. At Lifestyle Healing Institute®, we heal anxiety symptoms in a safe environment without any prescription medications.
