My hubby is an A and I just started him on his BTD vitamins about a week ago.   Today, he told me he is starting to have mild anxiety attacks before speaking at a daily meeting.  Now, he's had anxiety in the past, but managed to kick all of it.  Hasn't had an attack in years and he's had these daily meetings for a few weeks now, with no problem--although it is a high-stress project.  

Wondering if it could be something in his vitamins--he is only taking a half-dose, daily--I'm thinking not and that it's just coincidental.  He has been working lots of overtime and six-day weeks--so I'm thinking that's a factor, along with not enough sleep.  A's need their sleep and he often doesn't get enough of it.  

I did once read that a high dose of Vitamin C prior to an event that causes anxiety, might be helpful.  I suggested an Emergen-C about a half hour prior to the event.  B vitamins in there, too.  It's a daily meeting.  I'm also making sure he gets a calcium/magnesium supplement called Ionic Fizz tonight, too.  Any other suggestions?

I went through this anxiety problem in 06, and my husband is starting to
get nervous before his meetings now too, just this last week! His job is high stress, but it's really rare for him to be affected like this. Both our problems started in these winter months, mine being much more severe though. We are both A + blood types.

My problem back in 06 (which lasted almost 9 months) was a combination of Vitamin D deficiency and Omega 3's (DHA) which is essential for nerve health (along with that calcium/magn. which is also good for nerve health). After the sun of summer and a little acupuncture, my situation finally improved. I now take a supplement.
I think Vitamin D helps calcium absorption, so that could play a role too. Maybe try giving him Vitamin D3 with his calcium/magnesium supp.?

I'm sorry to hear about his anxiety because I know what a horrible feeling it is
to have panic attacks and generalized anxiety. Good luck!

Hi Robin I get nervous and feel rage easily, when anything is not as I hope or have worked for. I really do very well with yoga and Cortisol control with adaptogens as Gingko, siberian Ginseng, Korean Ginseng, Bacopa or Withania plus Vit C (Solgar Rose C 500 half morning and half evening for my small size). So if Vit D and Omega 3 do not do the trick this is my choice and  it gives me since many years good results. Also music performance it is surer and easier for me as a professional recorder player. A mental choice to feel more detached from stress and stressing people and events and to accept that sometimes we all have to go with the flow when there is no other chance should help.  Cortiguard and Polyvite A made me feel unstoppable, I'd need to use them as a routine, but the solution already written is nearly good as needed.
Hope it helps !

At one time or another I bought a set of three supplements that were supposed to work together.  This is one of them.  Right now I can't remember the others, but they helped.

I suffer from this a lot.  Lola's suggestion works great for me and I've been remembering to do that more and more with great success.  The trick is to actually take the time to do it before things get too out of hand.  I seem to have a breaking point were the anxiety builds so much that I'm unreasonable and unwilling to help myself.  The breathing thing is really getting me out of this habit.

Thanks, all!  He probably is eating wheat at lunch.  I will call him and gently remind him to eat the salad at lunch.  Oh, who am I kidding?   I will call him and 'instruct' him to eat the salad and dump the bread!    It's my bossy nature.  He'll laugh at me for being bossy, but he'll do it...

Was wondering about Attentia, we'll try it.  D3, we'll be sure to get that going on, too...alternate nostril breathing...forgot about that, but I'll clue him in.

Again, thanks to all!

Oh Ribbit, I don't feel so alone now.  I was almost ashamed to admit that I get like that (when it happens I even know I'm being stupid but just can't seem to pull it together) but figured that if I share something like that it may help someone else.

I can totally say that by following this lifestyle I am much much more balanced.  This balance has brought to light some very bad old habits of mine.  They stick out like a sore thumb now and one by one I am tackling them and changing my ways.  It took me 40 years to get here so I know 2 months won't fix everything but I do believe in the past 2 months I've made more progress with my health and emotional well being than I have in all 40 years combined.  I'm feeling empowered.

Robyn...tell your hubby to keep at it...he is on the right path.

Now that I think of it, back when I was eating wheat I had panic attacks. Aspartame made me anxious,too. Very scary! Glad I know better now

what's about l'theanine, magnesium, Gaba,l'arginine...etc   ...... a higher intake of all B vits, and a bit of meditation and autogenes training ....

be aware that he doesn't has anything but he instead *is* in such a circumstance...
biiiig difference.....he should give a try to EMT and/or some yoga as well....
and observe himself how he thinks and how he produces his own negative thoughts....

When I was having postpartum depression my midwife told me to double up on my B vitamins.  I always take them at breakfast, but for some reason I often forget at lunch.  When I do take them at lunch, I have a GREAT afternoon and am calmer and more collected.

Hi Ribbit!
Do you take Bvitamins in a complex?? Just curious about this vitB thing.. I do take B6, B12, but I experienced the B complex too heavy for me.
What other Bvitamins you take?
Hope to hear!

I like the Attacking Anxiety and Depression Course. It's all about handling your anxiety without using prescription drugs.
It really helped me back in  1999 when I was working a very stressful job. I'd wake up at night, fearful and short of breath. Not condusive to sleep.  One of the things they recommend is to cut way back on caffeine, and sugar, including fruit juices (large amounts).  I found caffeine to be a trigger for me. It's a great course that makes you in charge of your emotions and reactions. You're no longer at the mercy of the environment or what's going on around you like high pressure jobs...It's worth every penny.

Cocky, it's just a B complex.  I've experimented with several different brands.  The one I like the best (I've forgotten what it's called, but you can only get it through a distributer) is really expensive.    It was sublingual.  Seems like maybe it was liquid.  I forget now.

I picked some up at Kroger because they were on clearance just to try them and they work fine.  Not well, but okay.  Certainly better than nothing.

Magnesium magnesium magnesium!!!  Nature's nervous system relaxant.    Extra during times of stress, at bedtime, and sometimes I take one in the morning or before a stressful event.  Helps for sure.  That and meditation and breathing, even if it is just for a minute or two.

That is the basic concept with Attacking Anxiety and Depression.  People who took this course, were on anti anxiety drugs and anti depressants that weren't working anymore. They were suicidal.
