Specific Indications for Lyme Disease and associated diseases:
Lyme and Bartonella are the most likely diseases to cause the most severe levels of anxiety. I know first hand as I had both...lucky me! Not to sound dramatic, but GABA literally saved my life.
The chronic stress to the body caused by long term illnesses is the major reasons for experiencing anxiety. Chronic stress leads to hormonal disturbances that result in excessive levels of stress hormones, eventually leading to adrenal fatigue, decreased progesterone in women and decreased testosterone in men and women. Anxiety is the main symptom for those with decreased levels of progesterone, testosterone, and magnesium.
Women, don't forget to get your testosterone levels checked, this could change your life in amazing ways!
GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) is an amino acid and works as an inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain. It directly affects the personality and a persons ability to manage stress.
GABA occupies the nerve receptor sites for anxiety and stress related messages so that these are restrained from reaching the brain, reducing anxiety and stress.
GABA also helps elevate growth hormone levels which helps to speed up metabolism, boost energy, and increase muscle mass.
GABA acts as a pain killer, especially for arthritic pain, and helps normalize sleep patterns.
