Do you find that you’re anxious a lot, to the point what I call the hamster is going on the wheel; you can’t get it to stop with your thoughts, having a hard time going to sleep because of anxiety, even panic attacks?

I’m Dr. Keesha Ewers, and I’ve helped hundreds of people just like you with that problem navigate it and move through it.

I would like to give you tips on how to affect your mood in a way that’s natural. There are a lot of things I do in my medical practice. Neurotransmitters, adrenal glands, and hormones do all kinds of things to help you balance but one thing you can do at home is to look at your food.

Remember that food equals mood always. 

Some of the foods that provoke anxiety are going to be the stimulants that you have, such as caffeine, sugar, and high processed carbohydrates. Another is the relaxing things that you do as in alcohol. Even though those things relax you in the short term, in the long term they make things worse.

Check your diet. Take out anything stimulating or relaxing, and see if you can just focus on getting 20 grams of protein with every meal and lots of wonderful vegetables (the whole rainbow of vegetables- 9 to 12 cups a day) and then some good, healthy fats like avocados, olive oil, coconut oil. All those things are going to help to ground you and make you feel better.
