There is a silent epidemic affecting millions of people worldwide, and it’s time to address it.
I’m talking about anxiety.
According to 2022 data from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in the United States, 27.3% of Americans over 18 years old have been diagnosed with anxiety and 41.7% of adults between 18 and 29 years old have experienced anxiety.
That is almost half of all young adults in the US.Why are so many of our young people suffering from anxiety, and what can we do about it? Click To Tweet
I have worked with countless clients who name chronic anxiety one of their most persistent symptoms. Anxiety can be debilitating, leading to losing the ability to work, socialize, attend school, and generally thrive.
One of the most difficult aspects for anxiety sufferers is the fact that their condition is “invisible.” In other words, no test can prove it’s real.
For this reason, many who experience anxiety are treated as though their condition is not real – that it’s all in their heads or that they have the ability to shut it off if they just overcome the problem.
Gaslighting and blame are common for people with anxiety, especially young people who are labeled as “too sensitive” or “overly emotional.”
But anyone who’s experienced a panic attack will tell you that control is not an option and that “shutting it off” is exactly what they’d like to do but can’t.Here’s the truth: anxiety is real, and there are real causes. Click To Tweet
Let’s get to the root of the problem and explore how to overcome anxiety for good.
THE ANATOMY OF ANXIETY
Everyone’s anxiety is different because we each have a different combination of toxins and pathogens in our bodies.
Yes, anxiety’s true cause is a combination of toxins and pathogens.
Anxiety that doesn’t subside after a stressful circumstance is a physical condition, not an emotional disorder.
Emotional stress can trigger anxiety in the body, but it is not a cause. Stress will not prolong anxiety over days, months, or years.
Neurotoxins are the true culprit behind anxiety.

THE SMOKING GUN
There are common toxic exposures that many of us encounter on a daily basis that are harmful to our nervous system and therefore labeled as neurotoxins.
- Toxic heavy metals
- Toxic chemicals (plug-in air fresheners, perfumes, colognes, scented candles, household cleaning products, carpet cleaning chemicals, and more)
- Viral neurotoxins
These are the invaders in our system which injure our nervous system to the point of causing chronic anxiety.
Sometimes these toxins wreak havoc for a season, sometimes for multiple years. Each of our bodies is different with varying levels of exposure to these toxins.
Toxic heavy metals may reside in our brain, weakening nerves and neurotransmitters. Toxic chemicals are increasingly in the air around us. Radiation from wireless internet, smartphones, and plane travel builds on itself, weakening the nerves over time.
And then there are viral toxins.
A SECRET INVADER
Anxiety can be caused by toxic substances like those mentioned above without any viral activity, but it’s usually those toxins combined with a virus in the body.
Viruses like the Epstein-Barr Virus and the shingles virus feed on toxins in our body and produce neurotoxic waste which leads to greater levels of anxiety.
Almost every human being alive at this time has at least one virus present in their system, whether active or dormant.
Have you been diagnosed with “mono” (mononucleosis, which is early-stage Epstein-Barr Virus), shingles, or any autoimmune condition? There is so much you can do to heal from the effects of these viruses.
I would be honored to support you further with my Understanding the Root Causes of Chronic Illnesses Masterclass, which is designed to bring clarity to viral conditions, all the havoc they cause, and how to strengthen your immune system and knock them out.
ANSWERS TO ANXIETY
To overcome anxiety, it’s crucial to detoxify from common toxic exposures, avoid harmful foods, and restore the brain and nervous system.
Let’s break down each healing path above with helpful tips and supportive foods and supplements.
Start by detoxing your body from toxic heavy metals, toxic chemicals, and radiation. This will restore your neurological system and lessen anxiety in all forms.
For greater insight into everyday toxic heavy metal exposure, we all face and how to clear them from the body using these tools, check out my blog, Losing Our Minds to Toxic Heavy Metals.
It’s also essential to weaken and expel all viral pathogens by avoiding foods that feed viruses (start with eggs, dairy, gluten, corn, soy, and MSG including “natural flavors”).
Bring in antioxidant-rich foods like fresh fruits and color veggies, sources of healing glucose like potatoes and papaya to restore the brain, liver, and nerves, and trace mineral salts from leafy greens like spinach.
Supportive foods to heal anxiety include:
- Hops – a medicinal herb that has a calming and sedative effect on nerves.
- Celery Juice – destroys viral pathogens, removes viral waste, restores nerves and neurotransmitters, heals liver and digestive system, and extremely high in electrolytes.
- Wild Blueberries – Most powerful adaptogen on the planet, helps to heal and restore the brain and supports the body’s recovery from all conditions.
- Potatoes – Soothe nerves and brain tissue with high-quality glucose, provide deep mineral support, and have a grounding nature on the body.
- Bananas – Packed with potassium and glucose to restore brain and nerve tissue.
- Mangoes – Packed with anti-viral compounds, vitamin C, and B vitamins. Mangoes soothe nerves and support brain hormone production.
- Spinach & Leafy Greens – Full of healing mineral salts to support the brain and nervous system.

Chronic anxiety is not meant to be your normal, and it can be healed.
I can’t tell you how many young women and men have told me they believe their anxiety is their fault or part of their personality.
So often we begin to identify with our anxiety, believing it’s part of who we are. But you have the right to live an anxiety-free life.
With the right tools, you can heal.
I’ve witnessed healing happen for others, it is absolutely possible for you.
