Anxiety is your body’s natural (and normal) response to a threat.

Unfortunately more people than ever before find themselves far too frequently in a state of chronic stress and anxiety. Most have no idea there are options other than medications, and yet some of these very same medications may be making things worse!

They’re also NEVER told that toxins and/or infections — mold, pesticides, metals, oxalates, fluoride, phthalates, air pollution, gluten, viruses, parasites, Lyme and more — could be a root cause.

Our understanding of the many root causes of anxiety is radically evolving. All of these possible root causes and mechanisms MUST be identified, explored and addressed!

Do you ever:

  • Feel overwhelmed, worried & stressed?
  • Experience panic attacks, fears or phobias?
  • Have OCD or obsessive thoughts or behaviors?
  • Suffer from PTSD?
  • Suspect exposure to environmental toxins?
  • Take anti-anxiety medications, antidepressants or antibiotics?
  • Have Lyme disease/co-infections, parasites, PANDAS/PANS or candida?
  • And more!

Learn all the ways toxins, medications and/or infections could be a trigger for your anxiety. Discover anxiety’s many connections to GABA (the main calming neurotransmitter) and serotonin (the happy and calming neurotransmitter), and how you can use the amino acids GABA and tryptophan to ease your anxiety quickly, while dealing with underlying root causes that take longer to address.

With the research-based solutions and practical steps you’ll discover at this summit, you’ll be able to determine your root causes, ease your anxiety and prevent it from coming back so you can feel balanced again.

Your host, Food Mood Expert and certified nutritionist Trudy Scott, is the author of The Antianxiety Food Solution and educates anxious individuals and practitioners about nutritional solutions for anxiety. This is her 6th Anxiety Summit, featuring all new topics and the latest research related to anxiety and toxins, medications and infections. Trudy is passionate about sharing these solutions because she experienced the results first-hand, finding complete resolution of her anxiety and panic attacks in her late 30s. We hope you’ll join us, be enlightened and find your solutions.
