The Anxiety Summit Season 5: Gut-Brain Axis

(relaunch with free video access for 3 full days)

May 31 – June 2, 2024

Anxiety is still the defining mental health issue of the decade – women are affected at twice the rate of men, and children and young adults are more stressed, anxious and overwhelmed than ever before. Join us and learn nutritional and gut-brain connections, and solutions for your anxious mind!

As you now know, anxiety is your body’s natural response to a threat. However, more people than ever before find themselves far-too-frequently in a state of chronic stress and anxiety. To make it worse, most have no idea there are options other than drugs to address it. They’re NEVER told that poor gut-health could be a root cause, instead they continue thinking their anxiety is much TOO SEVERE for nutrition to be the solution — this potential root cause MUST be explored.

When you register for this 3 day viewing you’ll have the opportunity to learn about:

  • The role GABA and tryptophan play in both anxiety AND gut health (one of my talks)
  • Why vagus nerve activation and bile production is so important
  • The role of the microbiome, parasites, SIBO, mitochondria and trauma in anxiety
  • Why bitters, fermented foods and prebiotics should be part of your diet
  • How to use PQQ, choline, TUDCA, CBD, mimosa pudica, B12, spore-based probiotics and thiamine/B1
  • How collagen can make you more anxious and affect your sleep (one of my other talks)
  • The importance of methylation and B12 gene polymorphisms
  • How to use a castor oil pack and why it’s key for liver support and detox
  • The power of essential oils, homeopathy and Chinese medicine
  • How to make herbal teas that are calming and improve digestion
  • The value of fasting, bacteriophages, floatation therapy, fecal transplants and forest bathing
  • New insights into autism, fibromyalgia, Alzheimer’s and sugar addiction
  • The most recent gut-brain axis research and nutritional psychiatry research
  • SSRI impact on the microbiome and safe SSRI tapering
  • Advocating for your health and so much more

For May Mental Health Awareness Month we are opening up access to the entire video content of The Anxiety Summit Season 5: Gut-Brain Axis for 3 full days (think of it like a summit encore weekend)

When you register you’ll get access to these 3 videos and the transcripts immediately (these are for you to keep):

    • Trudy Scott – GABA & Tryptophan: The Gut-Anxiety Connections
    • Navaz Habib, DC, AFMCP – Vagus Nerve Activation to Reduce Anxiety
    • Ann Louise Gittleman, PHD, CNS – Why Bile is the Key to Anxiety & Hormone Havoc

You’ll also get access to these “Bonus Gift PDFs”

    • Your Roadmap to Finding Your Solutions on Season 5 of The Anxiety Summit
    • Amino Acids 101 for Anxiety & Gut Health
    • Top 9 Nutrients to Ease Anxiety and Support Gut Health

Your viewing of this 3-day “summit relaunch” will be similar to a summit encore (i.e. you’ll have access to all the video content for 3 days). The difference is that the content will be made available on the content platform we use. You’ll get login information right away to access your complementary video interviews/transcripts and PDF gifts. And then during the 3 day viewing window all the summit videos will be made available for you to view (and you’ll need to login to get access to that too). 

You will have the option to purchase the recordings/transcripts too (at a deeply discounted pricing) 

Interested in purchasing the Anxiety Summit recordings/transcripts?

$49 from now through the end of the summit on June 2 (full price is $99 so you will save close to 50%).

For the last 25 years, she has been on a mission to change the way the world eats. Her first book, The Body Ecology Diet, introduced the world to a sugar-free, gluten-free, casein-free, and probiotic-rich diet and a way of life that is now followed by tens of thousands of people around the world. The Diet grew to popularity initially by word of mouth and all these years later, still stands the test of time.

In 1994, Donna introduced a powdered blend of stevia rebaudioside to the US and it has since become the safest and most popular natural sweeter in the world. She pioneered and championed foods like young coconut kefir and coconut oil, and coined the phrase “inner ecosystem” to describe the still undiscovered network of microbes in our gut, now called the “Microbiome.” She also began teaching about the long-forgotten health benefits of fermented foods to provide the diversity needed in a healthy gut.

Over the past 25 years, Donna has become one of the most respected authorities in the field of digestive health, diet, and nutrition. In 2013, she completed an Advanced Fellowship with the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine. Donna’s extensive research and dedication to learning help her stay ahead of what’s coming in the field of health and nutrition. Her latest passion is nutritional genomics. She will soon launch a training program for practitioners that confirms that Body Ecology is a Gut Smart/Gene Smart way of life.

  • Sugar/processed foods addiction – as real as alcohol and drug addictions?
  • Hyperactive foraging and dysbiosis triggered by fructose addiction

View the Speaker Bio

Michael Collins believes sugar addiction is very real and not to be taken lightly. As a person in long-term recovery from substance use disorder for over thirty-five years, he took a very keen interest in what sugar was doing to him and his friends in early recovery. After much research and experimentation, he quit sugar with the help of amazing mentors. He then raised two children sugar-free from the womb to six years old, and as they grew he rewrote the rules for sugar in childhood.

Michael T. Murray, N.D. is one of the world’s leading authorities on natural medicine. He has published over 30 books featuring natural approaches to health. He is a graduate, former faculty member, and serves on the Board of Regents of Bastyr University in Seattle, Washington. Dr. Murray is the Chief Science Officer of Enzymedica.

For the past thirty-five years, Dr. Murray has been compiling a massive database of original scientific studies from the medical literature. He has personally collected over 70,000 articles from the scientific literature, which provide strong evidence on the effectiveness of diet, vitamins, minerals, herbs, and other natural measures in the maintenance of health and the treatment of disease. It is from this constantly expanding database that Dr. Murray provides the answers on health and healing on DoctorMurray.com.

According to Dr. Murray: “One of the great myths about natural medicines is that they are not scientific. The fact of the matter is that for most common illnesses there is greater support in the medical literature for a natural approach than there is for drugs or surgery.”

Misty Williams spent years struggling to reclaim her health and vitality after surgery to remove an ovarian cyst, life-threatening complications and an endometriosis diagnosis sent her into a brain fog and fatigue tailspin.

Her doctor told her that the only remedies for her issues were drugs and surgeries, that her labs were “normal” and she could “google” to learn more about what was happening to her body.

At 35 years old, Misty embarked on the fight for her quality of life, enduring many more challenges on her road to healing, including an unexplained 45-lb weight gain, debilitating brain fog, fatigue, hypothyroidism, and premature ovarian failure.

She founded Healing Rosie.com to provide high-performing women with the resources and community to successfully confront the unexpected chronic health issues that women often experienced as they age.

What Attendees Have Had to Say

The interview with Carolyn Ledowsky was probably one of the most eye opening talks I’ve ever listened to! The way she explained all the difficulties with the MTHFR gene was a wealth of information, and you both worked together so well to really make things clear. I feel I have hope, and better understand what the problem is. Thank you again.

Maija

Thank you for this interview. I have been so curious about castor oil packs and have shrugged them off many times with excuses that they’d be too messy etc. I’m a very visual person and I also have ADHD with anxiety disorder. This interview [with Marisol] was fun and concise which really helped keep my attention and take away a lot of great golden nuggets!

Nicole

This was a very informative discussion [with Dr. Navaz]. I suffer from Social Anxiety for years now and have not been able to overcome it but this information has shed new light on it and I will definitely look into this more. Thank You.

JoAnn

Trudy, I enjoyed listening to this interview with Dr. Todd. I recently took a test for pyroluria and it confirmed that I do have it. I knew after reading your book and seeing the questionnaire that I did indeed have it. You are a very good interviewer and Dr. Todd shared so many layers of information. So grateful to have tuned in. Thank you both!

Susan

Another fantastic informative interview. I took so many notes!! Gosh I just couldn’t help but to think of all the people in my life who would benefit from this. I’m definitely the demonic urge sort of sweets craving person however I also was very intrigued by DPA and Tyrosine. Is it normal to need support by multiple amino acids? Thank you both for sharing your knowledge and passion on this topic Trudy.

Nicole

Thank you so much for this wonderful summit! Thank you too for your interesting interview “GABA and Tryptophan: Gut-Anxiety Connections”. I have learned so much and I am truly interested in taking GABA for helping me deal with anxiety.
