Anxiety

Symptoms.

Feelings of anxiety are familiar to us all. They range in intensity from feelings of uneasiness producing trembling and sweaty hands, to bouts of diarrohea heart palpitations and full blown panic attacks. Anxiety can cause complete, albeit temporary, memory blocks, or cause entirely inapropiate behaviour.

Whatever the cause of anxiety, the result is not always debilitating. In fact, anxiety can be a useful coping mechanism. The apprehension of a deadline can improve performance, and an uneasy sensation of anxiety alerts us to a possible conflict or danger. If the problem cannot be resolved, symptoms may intensify and be longer lasting. Depending on the individual various types of problems may occur. Some tuypical ones are headaches, digestive upsets, impotence, insomnia and an inability to relax. A feeling of a lump in the throat, also known as globus hystericus, is not uncommon for women during times of extreme stress. This lump is not due to stress, and is possibly the result of a muscle spasm in the throat.

Causes.

Physically anxiety occurs when an overload of stress on the nervous system throws it off balance. As a result the autonomic nervous system becomes overstimulated causing symptoms of anxiety.anxiety is most often a temporary problem caused by periods of extreme emotional stress. It is often directly linked to our ability to cope with stress in our invoirnment but definite factors trigger and aggravate anxiety. All substances that induce wakefulness, including the caffeine in coffee and colas act upon the nervous system to put the nerves on the edge. Smoking to relax is a psychological fallacy as the nicotine increases rather than reduce stress. Hangovers and withdrawal from alcohol produce nervousness and tremors. Furthermore anxiety is linked to an increased production of lactate in the body which both alcohol and caffeine cause. Late nights and continually changing sleep patterns are also problems. Anxiety occurs most commonly during, or in anticipation of an event which depends on performance. Typical situations are writing an exam relocating to jobs or cities, or meeting someone important. Change also causes anxiety and the more serious the change the more profound the effect. Death divorce and personal illness are among the toughest changes which can trigger symptoms of anxiety and nervous tension. Since th nerves are dependent on nutrients to keep them calm low blood sugar levels or hypoglycaemia will cause feelings of distress.

Sweet foods are especially harmful since their digestion causes a dramatic drop in blood sugar which can be experienced as apprehensive jitteriness. Pay special attention to foods rich in the B vitamins such as whole grains, nuts, green leafy vegetables, nutritional yeast, eggs and fish for healthy nerves. Oats are wonderful for the nervous system. Hazelnuts are also a valuable healing food for the nerves.
