Do you get a sense of being overwhelmed? Do you suffer from anxiety, sadness, or panic attacks? Do these sensations appear to come out of nowhere, unconnected to life events or what’s going on in your environment? If that’s the case, your worry might be a sign of something more serious. Anxiety is typically the first symptom that anything is wrong inside your body, from gut imbalances to thyroid malfunction and even cardiovascular disease.
Fortunately, by addressing the physiological causes of your mood problems, you may confront the problem head-on, reclaim emotional stability, and reclaim your feeling of well-being.
Health Problem which causes anxiety :
- INFECTIONS OR IMBALANCES IN THE GUT: If you’re experiencing worry or other forms of emotional anguish, the explanation may be in your gut. Candida, SIBO, leaky gut, food sensitivities, and IBS are all things that can cause mood swings.
- THYROID DYSFUNCTION OR HASHIMOTO’S: An underactive thyroid can lead to anxiety, panic attacks, sadness, negative thinking, and low self-esteem.
- ADRENAL FATIGUE: Your adrenal glands are in charge of regulating your stress response. Your adrenals can no longer keep up with your stress levels and create insufficient amounts of stress hormones when you’re under chronic stress.
- ESTROGEN DOMINANCE :When you don’t have enough progesterone to balance out your oestrogen (think PMS and perimenopause), you can’t manage your emotions, which swing wildly from one extreme to the other
- AUTOIMMUNE DISORDERS: Autoimmunity can present as a mental health issue. That’s because the inflammation that causes autoimmune illnesses may also harm your brain and neural tissues, resulting in mood swings that aren’t explained.
- CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE: People with cardiovascular disease have a substantially greater rate of generalised anxiety disorder. The fact that panic episodes share many of the same symptoms as heart attacks is no coincidence.
- TOXIC MOLD POISONING: Mold poisoning can manifest as anxiety, sadness, cognitive fog, and sleeplessness, among other mental symptoms. The majority of people who have toxic mould sickness are completely unaware that mycotoxins are hurting them!
Getting Help for anxiety Problem
You may concentrate on getting to the bottom of your emotional and mental suffering now that you’re aware of some of the most common health issues that can cause anxiety, depression, and other mood abnormalities. Many of the underlying difficulties you may be struggling with may be cleared up by repairing your gut, optimising your food, taming your toxic burden, healing your infections, and reducing your stress, so you can figure out whether there is a physical basis for your symptoms.
