Do you experience anxiety or panic attacks? You’re not alone. Millions of people share the same struggle. If you are living with anxiety, you may take natural remedies or prescription medications to treat it.
While effective, prescription drugs for depression and anxiety can cause dangerous side effects. Plus, these drugs don’t do anything to get to the root cause of the problem.
In the video below, Dr. Vikki Petersen discusses the connection between gluten sensitivity and anxiety. She explains how gluten and other foods, like dairy, can lead to diaphragmatic spasms that cause hyperventilation panic attacks. Dr. Petersen also addresses the neurological component of anxiety attacks and explains how hidden food intolerance(s) may be the result.
If you’re struggling with panic attacks, completely remove gluten from your diet for a period of six weeks. After the six-week period is over, eat a lot of gluten at once. If your symptoms decreased on the diet, but come back full force once you reintroduced gluten, you’ve found the connection.*
Find a healthcare provider that specializes in gluten intolerance, so he or she can help guide you on your new gluten-free journey.
*Never suddenly stop taking a prescription medication without your doctor’s knowledge.
