Healing Diet
Lessening Anxiety
by Jennifer Orpen

A healing diet can be a lifesaver for making anxiousness disappear. Convenient when you're making changes to experience your soul gifts. Certain nutrients are winners. Do you know what they are?

Uncertainty about making a change can be nerve-wracking. You may feel insecure. Even panic-stricken.

But, anxiety may show more is going on than worrying about the future. Nutrients to keep you calm, may be scarce.


A healing diet can change this. With anxiety-buster nutrients. At last, freedom to go after what you want.

Healing Diet

Healing Diet - Blueberries count

Nutritious food...

  • Powers the brain.
  • Impacts mood.
  • Clears thinking.

Neurotransmitters play a key role. And, when undernourished, go out of whack. They need nutrients to work properly.

Or else,...

Anxiety can appear. Physical pain might even show up. And, may need demystifying with a natural healing guide. Luckily, the following useful nutrients keep anxiety under wraps:


Anxiousness could be related to not having enough antioxidants in your body. Foods rich in antioxidants can change this.

  • Seafood.
  • Broccoli. Artichokes. Red peppers.
  • Kale. Spinach. Beets.

  • Cloves. Cinnamon.
  • Oregano. Rosemary.

And, fruit...

  • Oranges.
  • Prunes. Black plums.

As well as,...

  • Cranberries. Blackberries. Strawberries.
  • Raspberries. Wild blueberries.
  • Goji berries.


Dates - A magnesium-rich treat as part of a healing diet to reduce anxiety

Magnesium puts the brakes on stress hormones. Keeps them under control. And, for a wonderful effect on the brain, protects you from anxiety. 

Consider adding these valuable magnesium-rich foods...

Zinc calms and sedates. However, it disappears quickly when you're under stress. Neurotransmitters suffer. And, anxiety can pop up.

To keep zinc at terrific levels, these help...

Moist-cooked or fried...Oysters. Alaskan King Crab.

Organ meat, such as...

  • Liver.
  • Kidneys.
  • For the adventurous...Beef tongue. Heart. Brains.
  • Eggs.
  • Peaches.   


Neurotransmitters are also present in your digestive system.

To keep anxiety under wraps, 'gut' neurotransmitters need to easily absorb nutrients. Excellent digestion is the answer. And, where probiotic foods enter the picture.

Such as...

  • Homemade fermented pickles.
  • Olives in brine.

A Word on Phytic Acid

Phytic acid in foods prevents the absorption of zinc and magnesium.

Legumes, nuts, seeds, beans and coffee contain phytic acid. Grains, too, particularly bran. For optimal zinc and magnesium benefits, you can minimize the intake of foods holding phytic acid. Not an easy task.

But, here are a few suggestions that may help offset the effects of phytic acid...

  • Bone broths.
  • Liver from any animal.
  • Sourdough bread.
  • Butter - grass fed.
  • Heavy cream – grass fed.
  • Cabbage.
  • Bok Choy.
  • Brussel sprouts.
  • Rutabaga.
  • Turnips.
  • Sweet potatoes.
  • Carrots.
  • Cantaloupe.
  • Whole apricots. Canned, water-packed.

A healing diet can be huge for keeping anxiety under wraps. Freedom to renovate your life. Why put up with worry when you can dissolve it with nutritious food?
