Amino Acid Anxiety/Mood and Sugar Cravings/Emotional Eating Questionnaire and how to boost serotonin and GABA naturally

  • Anxiety/Mood issues together with cravings and emotional eating, can be a sign of imbalanced brain chemistry and/or nutrient deficiencies.
  • But they can often be very easily corrected with the use of targeted amino acids, so you can start to feel calm and happy right away. This gives my clients hope and motivation to figure out other factors that may be contributing to their anxiety and/or panic attacks and feelings of overwhelm.
  • You’ll also be able to switch off cravings with no willpower required and you won’t feel deprived. Stress eating will just become a non-issue, and you won’t be drawn to sugar and carbs. You’ll be able to take it or leave it! Really!
  • This quiz covers all the categories: low blood sugar, low serotonin, low GABA, low endorphins and low catecholamines.
  • Many of my anxious clients really resonate with the symptoms of low serotonin (anxiety in the head) and low GABA (anxiety in the body).
  • So we dig deeper into some tips for boosting serotonin and GABA naturally so you can feel calm in your body, relaxed and free from overwhelm, and switch off the obsessive ruminating thinking.

Pyroluria questionnaire

Pyroluria is a social anxiety condition that responds really well to a few key nutrients. Once you find the correct combination and amount, you may find yourself to be a social butterfly and even less introverted. It’s more common that you would expect and you can use this questionnaire to figure out if this may be a factor in your anxiety.

For 40 years I have thought of food in only two ways: Food that makes you fat...and food that doesn't make you fat. I have finally begun to see the profound effect that food has on my emotions and over all happiness. This shouldn't shock me...but it does. And for the first time I am realizing that is what's most important! I am finally starting to think about how food "makes me feel" rather than how food 'makes me look'.

Trudy Scott is awesome! After years of dealing with my challenging health issues, and many other bright health care providers, Trudy was the one to give me relief and solutions. She gave me the hope of having a normal, healthy life again. I was ready to give up and Trudy changed my life. The breadth of her knowledge, resourcefulness, compassion and caring sets her apart. Trudy is a treasure.

“when GABA was introduced, the panic attacks disappeared”

“I also found that I have pyroluria so once I had introduced the nutrients I could stand up and speak in front of a crowd without having that terrible gut feeling and panic”

“I still am amazed at how quickly the panic attacks, binge eating, and mood swings disappeared.”

(she did the Amazing Aminos for Emotional Eating group program and saw anxiety, mood and emotional eating benefits)
