How did you cure your anxiety?

Answered on January 09, 2015
Created June 02, 2011 at 9:54 PM

Ive pretty much "cured" my anxiety on Paleo but there are so many things that Ive changed that Im not sure what really fixed it. Sometimes recommending full Paleo to someone is a bit overwhelming to them so I was wondering what some of the main triggers are.

I have to stay away from alcohol if I am not eating or sleeping well. But sleeping enough and eating well is the most important. Codliver oil is essential and so is vit D. Cognitive behaivioral therapy has helped me to deal with the negative thought patterns, it is awesome.

arguably, panic disorder is about anticipated fear. the above may not be the most sensitively written sentence, but many CBT folks view anxiety exactly like this - being figuratively stuck in the future while they see depression as trapped in the past.

Rigorous exercise is #1 in my book. It is amazing how much it improves mood. Here is a chart ( http://curetogether.com/anxiety/ig/treatment-effectiveness-vs-popularity ) of crowdsourced cures for anxiety based on popularity/effectiveness. Exercise is the top winner, but I stress you need to work out hard, to the point of gasping for breath, moderate exercise does not work as well, there is some threshold you need to pass beyond to get the real benefits.

Don't knock SSRIs so quickly -- maybe for some people they only work short term and have bad side effects -- but for some other people they're a lifesaver. I have yet to try D3, but I've been on Lexapro for years for Panic Disorder and GAD -- and have nothing but good things to say about it. I swore to myself in the past that I'd go on medication, but after ending up in the hospital for a major panic attack, I had to choose between medication and resigning from my job until I found another way to function. I chose medication and, years later, I've no regrets about doing so.

I will second the comment about staying away from Benzos. They are not proven to be effective long-term and the withdrawal symptoms will take you to hell and back. If you use them, only do so on an as-needed basis, not a daily one.

Had to downvote for the religious aspect, sorry a life-long atheist sprung from atheist parents, it sure isn't a lack of jesus that would make me anxious. #2 is a good point however- just being with other people, reaching out, can make a huge difference. It may be really, really hard at first, but it's worth it.

Though, I would caution people who are in therapy from just abandoning ship. Many people are in therapy due to traumas, and stopping therapy (in my experience) may cause what could almost be called "withdrawal" and that caused a lot of anxiety. I "weaned" myself off therapy, and still think it was a valuable experience that I learned a lot from.

Man, I know why you are a follower. Because you DONT read. I said my anxiety was cured BUT wasnt sure of exact trigger and recommending full Paleo can be overwhelming to people..so it can be tough to recommend. Read the Old Testament. Here start with Numbers 31:17-18. Here Moses is saying to kill women and children but to keep young virgin girls for yourself for sex slaves (theyre captures) From the Torah: chabad.org/library/bible_cdo/aid/9959/jewish/… Or if you prefer Bible: biblegateway.com/passage/…

Jesus was here to "save us." Well the majority of humans that have lived do not believe in him. 2,000 yrs later most of the world still does not believe in him. Looks like Jesus's mission failed. Can you show me one teaching that Jesus came up with that Buddha hadnt said 500 yrs earlier? Plus Buddha said he was just a man, not a god, angel or saint. How can a man know more than a god? Man, Im not joking Paleo is the #1 thing that helped my health, loosing my faith in god was the #2 thing that improved my health.

Haha, Yes this answer is awesome!!! Losing my religion and NOT BELIEVING IN GOD anymore was one of the BEST things Ive ever done. The bible was causing me anxiety for sure. And dont say I didnt know my bible. I read that thing inside and out and was in a bible study. If you still believe in that THERE IS NO WAY YOUVE ACTUALLY READ IT. From mass genocide to rape to molestation; it is a book of horrors. I am sooooooooo thankful Ive lost my faith. I feel much much better. Jesus recommended bread. How did he not know about gluten intolerance that many have?

My cousin is suffering from anxiety and suggesting all of that is waaay to much. Even telling someone to go full Paleo can be a bit much. Im thinking that low carb, eliminate sugar and exercise is a good starting place but Im not sure

Can't believe nobody mentioned gluten/food intolerance. Whenever I get glutened, my anxiety/depression comes back for a day or two, until the worst effects wear off. I'm convinced having wheat every day on SAD is what gave me that problem in the first place, and now food intolerance is my first suspicion when I hear about chronic mood issues. Vitamin D and dietary fat help too; they move me from "peaceful, not depressed, not anxious" to "I feel amazing". Hard to talk people into dietary fat though haha

Exercise is the biggest. And I mean completely exhaust yourself. During the summers I do trail construction (8 hours of heavy lifting and tool swinging and/or chainsaw work) and I do not have a single lick of anxiety. It's amazing. During the school year I do my best to do some heavy lifting and running every day. I also walk or bike to and from school and work, so I'm moving consistently between classes and shifts.

Vitamin D. Or better yet, nature. I've never felt anxious after a day in the woods or river.

Also, this may be controversial, but I'd take a little (small dose) ganja over xanax any day if you're using meds. Or kava kava. Stay away from benzos...

The first time I had a major panic attack and anxiety attack, the doctor put me on xanax treatment but it messed with my head really badly and I had memory issues. I was in a living hell. Later, a friend recommended me this treatment, and I’m very grateful with it, i can go anywhere i want without problem, no anxiety or panic attacks, i'm a new person now. Watch this review, it helped me a lot: panicsolutionkey dot com

For me a doctor recommended I test my Vitamin D level. I was skeptical at first but it turned out my level was below 20. He put me on a major dose for one month and since I started it I have had no anxiety issues or heart palpitations, chest tightness or an out of breath feeling. Its been about 6 weeks and my vitamin D level is 80! Sorry not sure how this relates to eating Paleo but it worked for me! This also with depression feelings!

5000 UI/day of Vitamin D3 cured my panic disorder after trying so many antidepressants and countless therapy sessions....I beg anyone with hardcore panic or anxiety disorder to try it and see for themselves. it costs $10 over the counter.....there is nothing wrong with us emotionally like FREUD who I call ???the man who killed psychiatric science??? by writing bunch of B.S. Doctors just started to discover that Panic/anxiety disorder turns out to be a hormonal disorder and the lack of Vitamin D3 (which is also a hormone) that we get for free from the Sun is one of the major factors.

Please don???t waste your time on antidepressants like lexapro, Zoloft,remeron???etc that might take the edge off for a short period and have crazy side effects + the customer for live effect??? and don???t try the therapied that are based on ???it???s all in your head basis??????.I swear to you that there is light at the end of the tunnel???take 5000 ui/day of vitamin d3 until you stabilize your levels >= 50 ng/ml.

Diet has helped me tremendously. Nuts (cashews, almonds) make my anxiety much worse. Perhaps avocado's as well. High fat diets in general seem to raise it somewhat. Banana's I find are tremendous for soothing anxiety via some GI calming effect.

Vitamin D cured my anxiety and depression. I was on major meds for years for depression and anxiety and even severe PMS. They put me on BIPOLAR meds. I am not bipolar. But I was willing to try anything. 2 months after curing my vitamin D deficiency, I am off all meds, except Vitamin D and B12. My therapist was amazed. I started Paleo 3 weeks ago and I find myself tired which makes me somehow feel depressed but I am working on trying to get more energy by eating more fat.

Firstly there is NOTHING psychologically wrong with someone who suffers from anxiety and depression. There may be some cases of endogenous depression but they are very rare. Anxiety and depression is caused BY something. I call myself a spiritual sensitive but it means I'm also sensitive in lots of other ways especially chemically. Coconut oil and all coconut products can give you anxiety if you are sensitive and it seems to be accumulative so the longer you use it, the worse it gets.

Don't take vitamins or minerals as sometimes there are things in them that can give you anxiety. Don???t ever smoke anything. Cigarettes contain hundreds of neurotoxins and weed is responsible for most psychiatric admissions. You should also not touch anything with caffeine in it (or guarna which is pure caffeine)I cannot use ANY type of moisturiser or conditioner even for sensitive skin as they put HORRIBLE poisons into them like formaldahyde, lauryl sulphate, lauryth sulphate, parabens, alcohol etc. ALL anxiety producing agents. Caffeine by the way causes anxiety, depression and thought and sleep disorders but it's like smoking years ago, no one is going to tell you because our whole society is built on it and it's a multi trillion dollar business. Don't ever take anti depressants they'll send you straight to hell. If you are sensitive to coconut oil it probably means you are 'a sensitive (not asensitive which is exactly the opposite) and you will have to watch EVERYTHING you eat, drink and put on your body. I do well on a very simple diet of fish, chicken and fresh vegetables and a little fruit. Don't take any medication unless you've got a raging brain infection or something and don't even taken over the counter meds. Antibiotics can cause horrible panic attacks sometimes eg Flagyl is a classic for this.

Also essential oils are potent and toxic if used on the skin I had a horrible reaction. Don't use them in hot water to soak your feet or anything as it goes straight into your body. Use a castelle soap for babies to wash your body and hair (made from olive oil) and a little olive oil for moisturiser. Dairy products can also cause anxiety. Don't drink alcohol - very bad for anxiety. There is a way to live and the key word are simple and clean. Oh be careful with ALL household cleaning products as well, wear rubber gloves while you're using them and don't breathe them in.
Anyway so many people are senstive to chemicals and don't know it. Oh also, don't use toothpaste or mouthwash it's pure poison (fluroride) and use only filtered water if you can (not bottled water).

A Paleo diet and eliminating food intolerances, learning to say no and learning how to set boundaries, vitamin D and sunlight, methyl B12 shots weekly, progesterone cream, ashwaghandha, thyroid medication, and not caring what other people think.

If ditching the wheat and sugar aren't enough, then I'd definitely suggest the Vit D. But depending on your issues, you may need to move beyond that. My pal had a bad case of anxiety after getting laid off due to the bad economy. She put together an impressive regime, which you may have to customize with some trial and error if you too have a tough situation.

She took 1.5K mg inositol, 2K mg GABA, 200 mg 5-HTP, 200 mg kava extract, 400 mg calcium, and 300 mg magnesium. She said she felt better in about 10-14 days, and really improved in 8 weeks.

If look around the web, you'll find folks who recommend and/or valerian (for sleeping, if anxiety keeps you awake), 2 mg B12 (again at bedtime), more mag (also at bedtime), and niacinamide 300 mg during the day.

Cutting back on sugar and caffeine made a big difference for me, as well as magnesium supplementation.

Decreasing overall sugar/carb intake has definitely made a difference, but I think specifically eliminating all soft drinks, tea and coffee was a major part of that. The only caffeine I get now is from the occasional bit of dark chocolate and I get jittery if I have too much, so I stick to 2 squares (20g) or less at a time.

Beyond that, I started supplementing magnesium recently before bedtime based on other recommendations in here and after noticing my Mg intake was low (according to Cronometer). My mood has stabilized quite a bit in general since starting paleo in November, but the magnesium seems to be knocking out that last bit of tension or restlessness that still seems to crop up occasionally.

Like Tyler Durden says, lately I've been feeling "as calm as a Hindu cow".

I think that cutting out wheat is the biggest thing that helped stabilize my mood. It doesn't matter if I eat high carb or low carb, or if I'm eating more meat or more veggies. Wheat is the one thing that brings back all my pre-paleo problems for days at a time, even if it's just one sandwich.

1) Start the day with 20-30 min. of mediation. Try this one: http://www.themeditationpodcast.com/episode_02.html

2) After your meditation do high intensity exercise including some weight training. Use the Tabata method or the Little method. 3- 4 days/week - more often if you are younger, i.e., <50 .

3) Walk outdoors in the sun - ever day.

4) Try 40 mg./day of Echinacea. See:http://www.ergo-log.com/echinacea-makes-you-carefree.html

5) Repeat # 1 at bed time.

6) Eliminate stimulants - red bull, coffee, etc. Tea can be calming however.

I was looking for what might have triggered my recent burst of anxiety. I haven't felt it in such a long time, felt myself feeling awkward in social environments and also twitching and chewing my cheek a lot when out in public. I was thinking to my self what have I changed in my diet and I realized to my self that I had not been taking my vitamin d3 supplement. I hope taking it again will cure this. As anxiety is no fun for anyone. Peace all.

Live in the here and now, not the future. That is the only way you can be anxious.

Not very helpful if you have a panic disorder, which is experienced and manifested entirely in the present.

arguably, panic disorder is about anticipated fear. the above may not be the most sensitively written sentence, but many CBT folks view anxiety exactly like this - being figuratively stuck in the future while they see depression as trapped in the past.

I perform black magic rituals daily and sacrifice newborns to Satan every full moon, now I'm anxiety free :) Satan can give you ANYTHING IN THE WORLD

  1. Seek after Jesus Christ. Read the Bible. Pray.

  2. Get in community. Be with people. Love on people.

  3. Eat/drink healthy - lower sugar intake, lower caffeine intake, up carbs, and drink water (half your weight in ounces daily)

  4. Get adequate restful sleep. Try to get to bed @ 10:00pm - 10:30pm for best restful sleep.

  5. Exercise - get outside, walk, and be amazed at God's creation.

  6. Get the "Linden Method". I got the download version ($99). It has helped me TONS!

  7. When feeling depressed or anxious - take organic Niacin (vitamin B3). But read and follow the link first.

  8. Let me know if it helps and cures your anxiety/depression!

Man, I know why you are a follower. Because you DONT read. I said my anxiety was cured BUT wasnt sure of exact trigger and recommending full Paleo can be overwhelming to people..so it can be tough to recommend. Read the Old Testament. Here start with Numbers 31:17-18. Here Moses is saying to kill women and children but to keep young virgin girls for yourself for sex slaves (theyre captures) From the Torah: chabad.org/library/bible_cdo/aid/9959/jewish/… Or if you prefer Bible: biblegateway.com/passage/…

Haha, Yes this answer is awesome!!! Losing my religion and NOT BELIEVING IN GOD anymore was one of the BEST things Ive ever done. The bible was causing me anxiety for sure. And dont say I didnt know my bible. I read that thing inside and out and was in a bible study. If you still believe in that THERE IS NO WAY YOUVE ACTUALLY READ IT. From mass genocide to rape to molestation; it is a book of horrors. I am sooooooooo thankful Ive lost my faith. I feel much much better. Jesus recommended bread. How did he not know about gluten intolerance that many have?

Jesus was here to "save us." Well the majority of humans that have lived do not believe in him. 2,000 yrs later most of the world still does not believe in him. Looks like Jesus's mission failed. Can you show me one teaching that Jesus came up with that Buddha hadnt said 500 yrs earlier? Plus Buddha said he was just a man, not a god, angel or saint. How can a man know more than a god? Man, Im not joking Paleo is the #1 thing that helped my health, loosing my faith in god was the #2 thing that improved my health.

Had to downvote for the religious aspect, sorry a life-long atheist sprung from atheist parents, it sure isn't a lack of jesus that would make me anxious. #2 is a good point however- just being with other people, reaching out, can make a huge difference. It may be really, really hard at first, but it's worth it.
