Using Individual Amino Acids to Overcome Anxiety and Emotional Eating

Please join us on Tuesday February 18th, 2014 at 4 PM Pacific / 7 PM Eastern as we host Food Mood Expert Trudy Scott for a Hawthorn University Webinar entitled “Using Individual Amino Acids to Overcome Anxiety, Panic, Worry, Negativity, Cravings and Emotional Eating”.

To register for this webinar please click here and follow the online registration instructions.

Supplementing with specific individual amino acids can raise neurotransmitter levels and balance brain chemistry, alleviating anxiety, fear, worry, panic attacks, and feeling stressed or overwhelmed. They can also be supportive in addressing other issues that contribute to or exacerbate anxiety, such as sugar cravings, emotional eating and addictions. In addition, supplemental amino acids can help with depression, PMS, poor focus/ADHD and insomnia, which often co-occur with anxiety.

This presentation will cover symptoms of low serotonin, low GABA, low endorphins, and low catecholamine neurotransmitters. How to raise these neurotransmitter levels with the amino acids l-tryptophan, GABA, d- phenylalanine (DPA) and l-tyrosine, thereby improving mood and ending emotional eating will be taught.  The use of glutamine to stabilize low blood sugar, leading to improved mood and gut health will also be addressed.

Trudy says: “The amino acids are key to the success of my practice. They help my clients eliminate stress-eating, and make food changes without feeling deprived and only having to use willpower. My clients feel calm and happy right away, giving them hope, while their other health and nutritional challenges are addressed. Many people suffering from various health concerns could receive tremendous relief with the proper use of amino acids”.
