The Amygdala and anxiety and panic attacks have a close relationship.
Last news about fast and effictive weightloss
Experts recommend regularly eat legumes.
American nutritionists have said that regular consumption of pulses in food provokes a decrease in body weight. In particular, the experts mentioned the need to eat beans, Nute, peas and lentils, reports The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
The researchers recommend a daily consume 130 grams of beans - three-quarters of a cup. This will be enough to lose 340 grams of excess weight in six weeks, provided that the person will refrain from overeating.
In this case, after stopping to eat beans are not a threat of weight gain.
Intensive exercise does not promote weight loss.The publication notes that the study results are based on 21-m clinical trial, the participants of which were 940 adult men and women who lost weight by an average of 340 grams after eating beans for six weeks.Experts also emphasize that in addition to reducing overweight cereals legumes reduce cholesterol in the blood.
I got -12 kg for 2 months, and ate his favorite marshmallows and not strictly adhere to a diet, stick to the separate power supply, and 2 times a day taking Xenical, do not do fitness, pictured trainer husband, I do not run, but I go with dog every day for 2 hours at an average pace.
First began to leave volumes especially stomach and thighs, then disappeared kg. By and large banquet Xenical is a tablet, it is best if you have overeaten to accept it. I have a year to hold its 62 kg, before such was not possible, although I have tried a lot. Before I take two weeks of starving on one green tea and a way out of hunger 2 weeks. This month, the result of -14 kg, but then returned everything kg and captured comrades, now only separate power supply, there are failures, but not fatal.
I advise everyone Xenical
+ any healthy food system that suits you. What to eat those who Xenical did not help, I do not know why and assess objectively can not. I went to his result seriously.
Write different, and I'll put in my two cents from personal experience. I drink Xenical 3.5 months, has lost weight by 7 kg. Maybe it seems a little bit - but quickly lose weight too bad, and the 7 kg for me - a great relief, because with my initial 72 kg and I'm in jeans do not fit, and legs ached, and climbed into a vein.
It is now much easier, so I will definitely continue to drink Xenical. The main thing - to comply with the diet, too, of course not starve, but fatty, fried does not have - and then the chair of special problems will not be, as here described. I have in any case as a whole to the drug no complaints.
And about duodenal ulcer - I do it for a long time, so that's Xenical drink and aggravation do not feel, so that does not affect it at this score.
The Amygdala might be affected by lack of certain essential
micronutrients and this in turn could
affect how easily we become anxious, panic or get depressed.
But first....what is the
The amygdala, (aka amygdaloid
nucleus, corpus amygdaloideum
) is a brain region particularly
important for conditioned forms of learning.
It plays a large
role in processing emotions, as well as in our defensive behaviour.
An almond-shaped neural structure in the anterior part of the temporal
lobe of the cerebrum, it is intimately connected with the hypothalamus
and the hippocampus and the cingulate gyrus. Refer to the pic for
The amygdalae are the red blobs.
In humans, this structure is
associated with a variety of behaviour
patterns including sexuality, aggression, digestion, excretion,
arterial blood pressure and muscle tone.
connection to the hypothalamus has been observed to be related to rage
Both the amygdala and the hippocampus
contain many receptors for neurotransmitters.
central nucleus of the amygdala is the most strongly modulated: this by
dopamine, norepinephrine, epinephrine
The basal nuclei receive moderately high
inputs of dopamine, norepinephrine and
Now this may seem like a lot of "terminology" (it is!), but the thread I'm
creating will, I think, be of relevance and interest to everyone who is
interested in better mental health, regardless of your
knowledge of biochemistry and neuroscience!
Neuroscientists are spending an enormous amount of
time and energy studying this part of the brain because it seems to be the store
of emotional long term memory and the location where, via "neural
plasticity" fears can become phobias and cause panic attacks.
Here's an extract from a
rather interesting study by (amongst others) Joseph LeDoux.
Plasticity in the Lateral Amygdala: A Cellular Hypothesis of Fear

Rodrigues, and Joseph E. LeDoux.

"NMDARs are ligand-gated ion channels that are typically blocked by
at the resting membrane potential. The magnesium
block is removed during depolarization of the postsynaptic cell, but
the receptor channel cannot open unless presynaptically released
glutamate is bound to the receptor when the magnesium block is removed.
When both of these conditions are met (postsynaptic depolarization
combined with presynaptic stimulation), calcium enters the postsynaptic
cell through NMDARs."
"In amygdala slice experiments, different stimulation
protocols can induce LTP that involves only one mechanism or the other
(NMDARs or VGCCs) (Weisskopf et al. 1999; Bauer et al. 2000), but under
natural conditions, we propose that both are
required to achieve Hebbian associative plasticity in LA and thereby
lead to the associative conditioning of fear responses to novel
Very Roughly translated
if there is enough magnesium
present, then the fear conditioning would not happen as easily.

are we going with this?
Well if this "neuroplasticity" involved in
sustaining the "fear circuitry" that we (inappropriately) develop and
which leads to anxiety disorders and panic attacks is dependent on the
interaction of the CALCIUM and MAGNESIUM IONS in the pre- and
post-synaptic cell membranes, then maybe
we should start looking a little bit more closely at the role of
Which means what?- well we have to look after our NUTRITION.
I'm guessing (cheeky smile) that if we were able to give our body all
the nutrients that it requires at a cellular level (in the correct
combinations), then it would stand the BEST CHANCE of functioning
Makes sense, doesn't it?
Just to emphasise the point... remember all those neurotransmitters
that we chatted about earlier on that are present in the amygdala ?
Serotonin, dopamine,epinephrine, norepinephrine etc etc
guess what- in order for your body to produce them, it needs the
Guess what the ingredients are ...
Yes!! Zinc, Magnesium, Vit C, Vit B1 B6 B3 etc etc
We will look more closely at the following pathways

neccessary for Serotonin
Ingredients necessary for Melatonin
Ingredients necessary for Norepinephrine
Vitamins and minerals. Very neccessary in optimal amounts for optimally
This however, is not the Cure-all:
Whilst investigating optimal nutrition, understand that
techniques and habits pay just as an important role.
The correct nutrition will provide optimal conditions so that you have
far less of a PREDISPOSITION of entering into depressive or anxious
states of mind.
Many of the cognitive techniques you have discovered on these pages
will work exceptionally well in the short and medium term- but having
the correct nutrition will make the mental exercises a lot easier -
because you're not fighting your own physiology!
in extreme cases medication can help... but it creates
an artificial state of affairs (along with many horrible other side
effects) - a temporary solution, at best.
what does my Amygdala need- what am I deficient
in, you may ask?
