Question
hello. what do you recommend for body numbness from head to feet all the time? also some social anxiety? talk therapy or cbt? i have free health insurance and the mental center only offers talk therapy. but if cbt is definitely better i would pay sliding scale fee somewhere else. i also willdo the hypoglemic diet. thanks.

Answer
Hi sara,
The first thing that you need to do is to have a thorough check-up with the doctor to eliminate any medical condition that could account for your symptoms. The next thing is to test  yourself for hypoglycemia (http://www.hypoglycemia.asn.au/2011/what-is-hypoglycemia/).
