Curb Your Anxiety With This

Curb Your Anxiety with This

Are you suffering from anxiety? The persistent worry and fear can be debilitating. You worry about work, finances, and what’s going to happen tomorrow. The things to worry about seem endless. However, what if all you had to do to curb your anxiety is add some fish to your diet? New research demonstrates that omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid (omega-3s) can be an effective treatment for anxiety.

What is Anxiety?

Anxiety is the most commonly experienced psychiatric symptom. It is a psychological state derived from inappropriate or exaggerated fear that leads to distress or impairment. The lifetime prevalence of any anxiety disorder is reported to be approximately 1 in 3. Anxiety often occurs with depressive disorders and is associated with lower health-related quality of life and increased risk of all-cause mortality. (1)

What are Omega-3s?

Omega-3s are essential fatty acids. Omega-3 fats are an integral part of cell membranes throughout the body and affect the function of the cell receptors in these membranes. They provide the starting point for making hormones that regulate blood clotting, contraction and relaxation of artery walls, and inflammation. They also bind to receptors in cells that regulate genetic function. They have been shown to play a protective role in many health conditions and diseases. Your body does not produce omega-3s, so you must obtain them from the foods you eat. (2)

Benefits of Omega-3s

Take a look at all the amazing benefits that omega-3s have for your health:

  • Enhances brain function
  • Lowers inflammation
  • Lowers blood pressure
  • Lowers triglycerides
  • Reduces risk for heart attack and stroke
  • Improves eye health
  • Lowers risk of macular degeneration
  • Benefits cholesterol levels
  • Reduces symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis
  • Lowers depression
  • Improves asthma
  • Reduces symptoms of ADHD
  • Helps fight autoimmune disease
  • Protects against Alzheimer’s and dementia
  • Decreases cancer risk
  • Reduce symptoms of eczema
  • Important for vision and neurological development in infants
Food Sources of Omega-3s
  • Fish, such as salmon and mackerel
  • Flaxseed and flaxseed oil
  • Walnuts
  • Avocados
  • Chia seeds
  • Egg Yolks
Conventional Anxiety Treatment 

If you visit your doctor about your anxiety, you will most likely be prescribed anti-anxiety drugs such as Xanax, Klonopin, Valium or Ativan without discovering the underlying cause of your anxiety. Plus, these drugs won’t correct the reason you are having anxiety in the first place.

Some of the side effects of these drugs include fatigue, memory impairment, blurred vision, diarrhea, insomnia, decreased libido, changes in appetite, dizziness, muscle weakness, nausea, and irritability. Your doctor may even refer you to a psychiatrist, which usually leads to the prescription of antidepressants – another road you don’t want to go down. A word of caution: if you are taking any of these medications, please do not stop taking them abruptly because these drugs are addictive. You must work with your doctor to wean off of them slowly and safely.

Natural Supplements for Anxiety         

There are many natural supplements that can help curb your anxiety, as well:

  • Fish oil
  • Magnesium
  • Inositol
  • GABA
  • 5-HTP
  • Ashwagandha
  • Rhodiola
  • Lavender oil
Could Hormone Decline be the Cause of Your Anxiety?

If you’ve tried adding omega-3s to your diet and taken natural anti-anxiety supplements, but are still struggling, then it’s time to find out if you have a hormone deficiency. Hormone decline and imbalance is a common cause of anxiety. We have had great results in relieving anxiety caused by hormonal imbalance with bioidentical hormones.

I’ve been a guest at this facility for 15 years. They are the most efficient, thorough and caring group of individuals I’ve ever experienced. Dr Hotze looks to change the way a typical doctor treats patients and looks for root causes to eliminate medical issues instead of treating “symptoms”. My life has improved 100% since my initial visit. The cost of the treatments are worth it.

I cannot accurately describe in words how I feel about this practice and the entire staff. I have had quite a few health issues throughout the years, rheumatoid arthritis, sjogrens, weight gain, hair loss, irritability, and that is just the beginning. I had pretty much given up on feeling good, just decided to "live with it" and hope for the best. Two very close friends love the Hotze Wellness Clinic and they have experienced life changing health. Made my appointment and from the beginning I felt heard. Not a in and out fast food style practice. They are looked and are looking at my entire body for overall health and wellness. Connections from mind and body to clinical blood work, even dental questions....they care and I feel as if I can trust them. I am on a path to complete wellness and my goal is to have my RA back in remission as it once was....make yourself a priority. Having hope is an incredible feeling!
