I had anxiety for over six months and had your symptoms of the morning thing for around 2 months.
I found a way to totally supress these symptoms of anxiety by doing the following:
Vitamin C - Took 3000mg a day because this vitamin supports adrenal gland, it also supressed the production of cortisol and adrenaline, which is what are causing the effects you describe.
Fish oil - This again lowers cortisol, helps with good thought patterns and will aid your recovery. Takes at least a couple months for full benifits to kick in, but everyone should be getting omega 3 for proper brain functioning. to get the most acute benifit, start taking vitamin C now. For me it totally stopped my palpitiations, my nervousness in the mornings, my tiredness, and all other symptoms associated with anxiety.
Read the following from the article:
"People who have high levels of vitamin C do not show the expected mental and physical signs of stress when subjected to acute psychological challenges. What's more, they bounce back from stressful situations faster than people with low levels of vitamin C in their blood."
"In the animal studies, vitamin C fed to rats undergoing stress not only prevented the expected increase in cortisol levels, it prevented the animals from exhibiting the known signs of physical and emotional stress, including loss of body weight. Animals that did not receive vitamin C had three times the level of stress hormones"
I wish I could tell more people on about
how much these two helped me!... but this is the last time I will share this information now, gets annoying after a while when it ends up 20 pages at the back lol and almost 0 responses.
I think maybe because it sounds unbelievable and too simple. But I was in a real mess, and it really worked very well for me.
