Hester - I gave my dh a calcium/magnesium/potassium supplement for anxiety before he had rx for it. it helps. calms the nervous system. we had a midwife at the time and she told us about it.
you mean that a mineral deficiency can cause the anxiety? I could find a multiple vitamin that has this in it and use it that way. I was hospitalized one time and the only thing they could find wrong with me was insufficient potassium, magnesium, and folic acid.
I was medically unresponsive on the way to the hospital in an ambulance, and in the emergency room.
Anxiety is one of the worst feelings to me. sometimes I have to shut myself in a room and just hold my hands together and pray, it is so strong. It seems I will fly apart if I don't hold myself together.
and it might be just a vitamin deficiency. amazing. thank you so much. going to check my vitamins now. make sure they are in my pill box. I have not been having these anxiety attacks as much lately. maybe because of the vitamins.
Thank you so much for this advice.
