ANSWER: Hello Mammoud,

Your anxiety may not be in the mind as it in the body. You may be suffering from hypoglycaemia (

This can be treated by going on a hypoglycemic diet (

Please read 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


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

Nutrition-Behavior Inventory (NBI)

If you score high it may be an indication that you could be  hypoglycemic (  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

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