Possible aniexty help..

Posted , 6 users are following.

Just wanted to put this out there because many of us deal with anxiety.  I go thru spurts of staying in just because it's comfortable and I can be myself.  Usually, I panic around holidays and other events, even work too. It's horrible as I shouldn't feel like this-- when I was younger I always went with the flow.  Now I believe I tend to 'over think' things.   So I saw a friend about 2 weeks ago and her hair was amazing and she mentioned it was probably Spirulina helping.  So since my hair has been thin and limp, I bought some pills-- she takes it in the powder form.  Well, after a few days I noticed that I was calm-- Easter was around the corner and I didn't think twice about it.   Went to church and then in-laws for a gathering..   It was like I was at peace.  Very strange because I tend to 'worry' about gatherings.  So I'm wondering if it was the Spirulina or maybe now the anxiety is just gone..  I don't know so I thought if someone would like to try and see if they notice a difference with it as well.  I've read that it's a superfood and helps with many things..  Could help someone else.  : )

    Hi there,

    I have heard of spirulina but never tried it so might give it a go. I have noticed over last couple of years that I'm more anxious about going out. Combined with physical symptoms i had just had enough of not feeling like myself and went to a Menopause Clinic. When i described this feeling of almost agrophobia to the gp, she said it was surprisingly common, and she once had a patient who didnt leave the house for nearly 5 years till she got her hormones in balance. Helped me feel a little less anxious about feeling anxious, if you know what i mean.

      She motioned a small shot glass so I'm assuming it's in the morning first thing straight with water.  But I'm sure you can mix it with smoothies.  I'm thinking of buying the powder and adding it to my morning smoothie.  The pills are fine but sometimes I forget and the dosage is 6 small pills a day!!!  The powder might be easier.
