Help Treat Anxiety With These Foods

Help Treat Anxiety With These Foods | Kelso WA Chiropractor Anxiety can be a debilitating emotional and physical response to internal or external stimuli. When a bout of anxiety arises, a rush of adrenaline, chemicals and stress hormones surge through the brain and body leading to emotional distress, increased heart rate, muscle tension and resulting fatigue. The Family Chiropractic Care team assists clients with treating the physical effects of panic attacks, such as muscle exhaustion, and educates clients on how to treat anxiety by adjusting their nutritional intake.

While you may be aware that large amounts of caffeine and some prescribed medications can cause anxiety, you may not know that anxiety can be treated by a well-balanced diet that includes foods with choline, folic acid, magnesium, potassium, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin K, and zinc.
