I found B12 really effectual for numerous things, but remethylating didn't do a lot for anxiety (the universal curse of modernity).

I knocked over 90% of my anxiety by:
  • Increasing zinc to 150mg per day (in 3 doses). (You may need to add copper after a while if you do this.) This removed the anxiety's 'jittery' edge.
  • EMDR on any traumas that are hanging around, recent & old - that cleans up the psychological anxiety triggers: the PTSD aspect.
  • The rotation, low-lectin diet. (Peel & pressure cook root veg. Only organic veg & grass fed meat. Eat the same species only every 4 days.) I also ate low-oxalate & low-histamine at first, as both were causing anxiety.
  • Eating every morning first thing—not waiting till lunchtime (as I was doing). A big change from this one.
I basically designed a very simple eating plan involving eating much the same meal 3x/day (you could get more creative, but I couldn't be bothered). The next day the species would be totally different...

This approach initially lowered anxiety, but after a week or so it also began adding happiness--which replaced the anxiety. Most other indicators improved as well: cognition, energy, sleep, eyesight...

I'm not suggesting everyone should do this, or that it's The Answer--just adding my 2c by saying what worked for me.

what is EMDR?

The eating first thing is good: when you have insulin resistence issues- insulin is very involved in anxiety cycles in my case...eating protein early in the day helps..

Eating alot of roasted root vegetables helped me alot with IBS-d symptoms- reduces wind.

More happiness- that sounds outstanding!!

Therapy to target traumatic events and desentisize to them. Is a type of exposure therapy on the hipnotic side. If something really torments you. EMDR can help you accept and move on from it.

Ah , yes I've heard of that...there is something helpful going on with that technique and its used here locally by our town psychiatrist.

I have done a bit of that- its part of the Emotional Freedom Technique- tapping.

so the eyes going left and right- this- does some type of short circuting- along with tapping various points etc.

Unless you roll up your sleeves and enter the play pen- one might miss out on some benefits from some of these tricks.

EFT- instead of ignoring or pretending- there is no issue or problem- you directly confront- that there is an issue or problem but you totally and completely accept yourself and the situation.

I can stop bladder spasms- while stuck in a car in San Francisco- trying to get to the other side. You get really uptight- its just so intense going thru massive urban areas and terrifying freeways. So it works at times for- Emergency Stress Reductions. Tap Tap. Repeat chants.
