Hi Rina, i also heard that. i can imagine it to be true. I had stopped drinking milk for a while, and i noticed that the gerneal anxiety was very  bad, i started to drink milk again and it is not that bad, the general day to day anxiety. i still get the panic attacks. in the past drinking milk after a panic attack seemed to calm me down.I dont know how much of a calcium supplement is needed. if i find out i will let you know..

shortages of any element may cause severe problems, also going too far with a no salt diet can make you very ill, but I havent heard of elements curing anxiety

I take calcium and have never noticed it making a difference one way or the other with my anxiety. It helps with diarrhea though.

Everyone's different with this sort of thing. I get lots of calcium because I love cheese and also because I take quite a bit of chewable Maalox, but I don't think it's helped anxiety any. Your mileage may vary, though! Worth a shot.
