Panic Attack Causes: Correct Anxiety Diet, Blood Sugar & Diet

Hi It’s Matthew from Thank you for watching this video Today I am discussing the connection between anxiety and blood sugar Over the years, neurologists and others studying
the brain have learned an abundance about the very interesting characteristics of the
brain. This understanding has been enhanced because of advanced brain scans These scans have provided information on various brain systems, their functions, and resulting problems when one of these systems doesn’t
function optimally. This work has also allowed an abundance of
helpful suggestions to emerge on how to optimize the functioning of various areas of the brain. Best of all: there are really good implications
for anxiety and panic attack sufferers. One such implication concerns the basal
ganglia system This area of the brain is responsible for many processes By optimizing the functioning
of the basal ganglia, But how does one optimize the basal ganglia system? Have you ever watched horses eat? You’ll notice that they graze throughout
the day as opposed to eating several big meals like we humans are inclined to do. This grazing helps keep blood sugar levels
stable. This is because food that lasts longer typically doesn’t cause a jump in blood sugar levels. Remember how important it is to keep blood sugar levels as consistent as possible throughout the day. In my opinion a healthy diet would consist of: I need to define the term “glycemic load” To explain I’ll have to start with the “glycemic index” blood sugar. A carbohydrate high in glycemic load will create a more dramatic blood sugar response HOWEVER this spike is followed by a more dramatic drop in blood sugar – referred
to as a crash. This crash makes you feel lethargic and hungrier. Obviously, given what has been discussed regarding the basal ganglia system, this crash is not desired. That’s why eating a diet that consists of
carbohydrates with a lower glycemic load, in my opinion, is best for anxiety, panic
attacks, weight loss and overall wellness. I’m not suggesting that this dietary approach concerning anxiety and blood sugar is a magic potion There are many great tasting sources of carbohydrates
lower in their glycemic load ranking great sources of protein and healthy fats:
vegetarian, meat, fish, dairy, vegetables, nuts, protein powders, etc. If you explore these concepts further, you can find diets that follow these principles Thanks for watching!

    panic attacks definitely can occur through having low blood sugar,  the symptoms are identical .   a panic  attack can also occur through a sudden release of toxins through the gut, which the body sees and reacts to as an emergency and releases adrenalin and thus a feeling of panic can occur in those who are already to some degree on red alert mode.  A leaky gut must also be attended to as well as a diet to support steady blood sugars.. and then of course to look at the potential of trapped emotions from our past.

    Refreshing to find someone who draws the connection between sugar/alcohol and adrenalin/insulin/glycemic spikes and resulting panic attacks: the big secret in quack western psychology/medicine. Many millions of people worldwide need to know this. Alcohol is not a a fun inconsequential party-bonding toy, it is sheer poison for the body, mind, and spirit. And the body gives you panic attacks to keep you from abusing it too long. Also, most alcoholics are sugar-addicts: they crave sweetness as a substitute for love. And the result is the same: panic attacks.

    I recently drank a sugary filled "green" smoothie…. Even worse I was in heavy traffic
    ….. Started laughing and tearing up hysterically… I needed to pull over and lay back until it wore offd
