Anxiety in the U.S. is conservatively estimated as affecting 18% of adults between the ages of 18-54 40 million people – according to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH). Other estimates put the number much higher, around 30% of people, because many never seek help, or are misdiagnosed, or don’t know they have anxiety issues. It also has been estimated that anxiety disorders are about one-third of the entire mental health bill in the U.S., with its share being $42 billion (out of a total $148 billion).

Anxiety has become the number one mental health issue in North America. Types of anxiety that impact include generalized anxiety (being a ‘worry wart’ and nervous about anything and everything in general), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), panic disorder (‘anxiety attacks’) which affects women twice as often as men, and PTSD such as can be triggered by rape, experiencing childhood sexual abuse, being in combat, or having other traumatizing experiences. Other anxieties include ‘social anxiety’ (being overly nervous around people), and phobias (fear of: spiders, snakes, flying, etc.).
One of the more common ways to ‘treat’ anxiety is through alcohol. “I need a drink!” is something many say. Use of anti-anxiety medications such as Xanax, Ativan, Klonopin, or Valium is another means for treating it. However, this class of drugs is suspected of being linked to dementia when they are used for a long time, along with permanent memory impairment. Drugs also are effective only until they wear off, and then another dose is needed, a few hours later. And this class of drugs is known to be physically addictive, and has other undesirable side effects too.
An alternative approach to anxiety is through neurofeedback. There is some research that has found neurofeedback to be effective in reducing anxiety, and this includes it being roughly equal to the effectiveness of medication. Research also suggests that the benefit of neurofeedback may have long lasting effects after the treatment is over.
The American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry states that neurofeedback meets their clinical guidelines for treatment of anxiety (along with ADHD, learning disabilities, seizure disorders, depression, reading disabilities and addictive disorders.)

I love the taste of fermented vegetables. I put it on my salads or have it on the side with my breakfast of eggs and vegetables. I love it on toast with avocado the most, its kind of like a reuben sandwich only healthier! As much as i love this versatile and easy to make food it also has an incredible history as well as health benefits that are pretty incredible.

Keep in mind refrigerators have not been around forever and people had to do something to preserve the food for another day without it going rotten. Fermenting was the perfect solution. In fact the earliest record of fermented food was about 6000 BC. Now keep in mind this includes dairy products (among other things) but today I want to just focus on the veggies!

The science end is what I find even more interesting. Did you know that there is ten times more bacteria than cells in our bodies?! Now not all bacteria is bad. In fact there is good bacteria in our bodies and it breaks down the bad bacteria, harmful substances from the environment and spent substances that our bodies create and need to dispose of.

Now fermented foods are good bacteria or otherwise known as probiotics. Let me explain what this word means. Most of us know what an antibiotic is so lets break down the word. “Anti” mean against, “Biotic” means life, therefore Anti-Biotic means against life. What this means in a nutshell is that antibiotics not only wipe out the bad bacteria but also the good bacteria as well. Now if we break down the word Probiotic we have “Pro” which means for and “Biotic” which again means life and therefore you have pro life!

Probiotics help to promote a healthy metabolism, improve the immune system, reduce inflammation in the gut, normalize cholesterol, digest food, aid in pancreatic functioning because they are considered already broken down by the fermentation process which is great for diabetics. They also regulate fat absorption, lowers the risk of cancer, can improve your mood due to gut health, can help with acne, yeast/candida, which in turn can also help people with autism, schizophrenia, depression, and attention deficit disorders.

In many countries the sanitation is very poor and eating fermented foods can actually protect people from foodborne illnesses. In fact, in the 1950’s sauerkraut (which is a fermented cabbage) was effective in killing the bacteria caused by cholera and typhoid.

Fermentation is kind of like a pre-digested food because bacteria are present and the bacteria begins to break down the sugars and starches in the food. In fact fermented food is so strong that a single serving of fermented food can contain trillions of probiotics which his is equivalent to a whole bottle of expensive over the counter probiotic capsules! On top of all this greatness it is super simple to make. It doesn't get much better than that!
