Phobias/Phobic to public speaking

Question
Hello Dr. !

I'm Akash (Age 25, M). I'm phobic to public speaking, facing interviews, and speaking to girls. Any of these situations tend to pace up my heartbeat. It pounds like someone deliberately punching from within and I feel weak and my limbs tremble.

My childhood wasn't good enough to tell. My father always used to superimpose himself on me. I lost the love of my life because of this reason which further added to my grieves.

Help me if you can and I'll be grateful to you all my life. I'll wait for your response. Homeopathic remedy would be preferred.

Answer
Hi AKash, Your anxiety attack are probably due to the over-production of stress hormones (such as adrenaline and cortisol) due to an inner illness that fails to produce feel good. The most common illness responsible for this is hypoglycemia. Please read:

The adoption of the hypoglycemic diet (http://www.hypoglycemia.asn.au/2011/the-hypoglycemic-diet/) will resolve the problem in the end.
When faced to having make a public speech, use the supplement GLYCERINE (http://www.hypoglycemia.asn.au/2011/research-evidence-for-hypoglycemia/#GLYCERIN)
