Anxiety or mental issue? Don't know what it is.

hi, i'm new here and looking for something that may help me.

over a couple of years now i've become foggy-brained, lack concentration, have a heard time finding the right words to say and am very self-conscious when i'm around anyone. i do lack self-confidence and am overweight but it seems like nothing i do such as losing weight, etc has helped. i don't get regular sleep, maybe six hours a night, sometimes if i'm lucky seven hours. i feel drained upon waking up. i just feel spaced out and can't remember much of anything. my attention span has totally decreased. diet wise, i recently started medifast (about a week ago) which is a liquid nutrition supplement diet. i'm not sure i'm getting enough vitamins and am scared to take anything else for fear of toxicity.

i've been to a therapist to figure out what is going on and she wasn't able to help me. is there anything out there that is safe and helps with anxiety?

Take a look at thit this thread, too. Anxiety is usually tied up with depression.

Incidentally, vitamins are not toxic in large doses as any excess is flushed out of the body. The program I recommend on that thread I gave you a link to will fix your problem (be it a casew of anxiety or any other mental issues, that's to say any issues related to the mind) completely, and except for the Inositol that I recommend, are relatively speaking not very large doses.

I thought I'd take the salient points and post them here (but please also visit the thread):

You must read this: http://www.naturaladd.com/resources/articles/natural.html (very important).

The findings show that Inositol works *better* than a drug to fix depression, panic and anxiety. And it isn't alternative medics who have determine this, too, but conventional ones.

My recommended supplement program for all and any mental issues:

Vitamin B Complex each B Vitamin (B1, B2, B3, B6 etc) should have at least 50 mg each, preferrably 100 mgs.

Vitamin B12 - 1000 mcg (micreograms), i.e. 1 mg. Take at least 2 mgs a day.

Vitamin C 500 mg daily doses.

Glutamine (Glutamic acid) 200 mg daily doses.

Tryptophan or 5-HTP - take either 500 mg Tryptophan or 100 mg or 5-HTP, daily.

GABA (gamma amino butyric acid) 100 mg daily doses.

L-taurine 100 mg

Licorice root (to chew on when depressed or anxious)
New Era Nat Phos. biochemic salt.

Rose Eseentiual oil: take a bath in the morning and sprinkle drops of the oil in the bath water. This alone will make a big difference after 3 or 4 days.

Celtic salt or a good brand of sea salt. Drop a quartrter teaspoon or so in water and drink twice (or so) a day.

Also take multiminerals once a day if possible. The liquid form is ideal.

Eat lots of fruit and vegetables (preferrably organic) and whole foods, such as brown rice and millet. Once in a while eat some liver (since it's a rich source of B Vitamins).

Take a good multi-Vitamin, too, if possivble (optional).

Eat dried fruits (if possible) such as dried bananas, dates, figs and soak muesli in apple or grape juice overnight, then eat this in the morning. Also eat porridge and have a 10 second cold shower in the morning if possible.

Drink twoo cups of pure water before and after every meal, seperated by 20 minutes per cup.

Make sure you take the Vitamin B12 and make sure it's the sublingual type (taken under the tongue).

If you still have mental issues after taking all of that, I simply won't believe you.
