ANSWER: Hello Mammoud,

Your anxiety may not be in the mind as it in the body. You may be suffering from hypoglycaemia (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
http://www.hypoglycemia.asn.au/2011/beating-anxiety-and-phobias/  

When on the hypoglycemic diet, you should gradually sett to feel better. If you encounter any more problems please contact me again or I suggest you see Nutritional Doctor.


I hope I have been of  some assistance

QUESTION: thank you for your response. alwyes i test suger level in medlab and give me normal results (around 90-105).
can you tell me breifly about denaxit

Answer
hi MAMOUD,

Yes these results seem to fall within the norms. Perhaps you should test yourself with

Nutrition-Behavior Inventory (NBI)
  http://www.hypoglycemia.asn.au/2011/the-nutrition-behaviour-inventory-nbi/

If you score high it may be an indication that you could be  hypoglycemic (http://www.hypoglycemia.asn.au/2011/what-is-hypoglycemia/)  This is a silent disease that is responsible for excess production of stress hormones - like adrenaline and cortisol - and which may trigger depression, anxiety or a low self-esteem.

It may also be an idea to read other sources of mood disorders apart from hypoglycemia. Please read:

Silent Diseases and Mood Disorders
  http://www.hypoglycemia.asn.au/2011/silent-diseases-and-mood-disorders/

If you suspect any other diseases might cause you mood disorders then dicuss this with a nutritional doctor.
