Episode 169: Eating for Anxiety

with Trudy Scott, CN

Symptoms of anxiety are becoming more and more common, so can we address some of these issues through our diet and lifestyle before relying on medications?

Trudy Scott is an expert in the food mood connection and she shares some different ways to look at how the things that we put in our mouths affect our physical and mental health. If we can look at our symptoms of anxiety as an opportunity to be in a respectful dialog with our bodies, we can begin to hone in on the different sources of anxiety, such as low serotonin or low GABA. As Trudy says, we’re really just at the beginning stages of understanding the effects that different substances, like probiotics, have on our bodies, but if we get back to basics with our diet, we can start to unravel our anxieties and find relief.
