Question
I have been suffering from anxiety for the last six months due to lack of sleep and stress.The last two months I took magnesium about 500mg per day which help me to sleep better.I am not on medication for my anxiety disorder.
Unfortunately now I afraid  of being left alone and am easily afraid and frightened.When I walk I feel as though I am floating on air.What supplements can help me?I dare not take medication such as xanax as I am afraid of the withdrawal symptoms.Please suggest anything that could ease my problem.
Thanks.

Answer
Hi Abdullah,
I am glad to hear that magnesium is helping you to sleep better.  But magnesium will not by itself cure the anxiety. This is usually caused by an illness that is called hypoglycemia (http://www.hypoglycemia.asn.au/2011/what-is-hypoglycemia/

This can be treated by going on a hypoglycemic diet (http://www.hypoglycemia.asn.au/2011/the-hypoglycemic-diet/)

Please read;  Beating Anxiety and Phobias

I hope i have been helpful.
