The graph below shows an example of what imbalanced blood sugar levels may look like over the course of the day. You may not fall in either category perfectly as it is a continuum, but the chart above are some example symptoms that occur with blood sugar imbalances.  Do you experience many of the above symptoms?  If so, stay tuned as I will go over the effects of blood sugar imbalance and of course ways to improve! When most people think of anxiety, they envision someone having a full-blown panic attack, but the truth is that anxiety may show up in subtle and sneaky ways. Is it difficult to stop checking emails or social media for 24 hours, because you feel like you’re missing something important? Do you find it difficult to control your worries, or sometimes feel they are out-of-proportion to reality?
Because anxiety is a form of stress, it causes the release of stress hormones like adrenaline and cortisol. The problem is your body doesn’t know the difference between an overwhelming day and being chased by a deadly beast.
Over time, chronically high cortisol levels can stress your adrenal glands, create hormonal imbalances, increase your blood pressure, “rev,” belly fat, sugar cravings, and insulin levels. When you go too long without eating, it can cause you to feel anxiety-like symptoms simply because your brain isn’t receiving enough glucose to function properly. 3Gorman, J. I also want to be clear that when I say your brain needs glucose to function it doesn’t mean you should eat unhealthy snack bars or a bag of chips.  Fake carbs will spike your blood sugar, which activates the release of the hormone insulin.
When you first drink a cup of coffee your adrenaline and epinephrine levels go up, this is why you feel like a rock star for the first 15 to 20 minutes. This caffeine crash isn’t surprising since after about 15 to 20 minutes your adrenaline and epinephrine levels start to go down while your cortisol levels stay up. Consider this: using coffee to increase your energy levels is like using a credit card to buy something you cannot afford. As I describe in my new book, The Hormone Reset Diet, on page 133, coffee may make you anxious owing to contamination with mold toxins. Consider switching out your coffee for organic black and green teas, which contain much less caffeine than coffee, and green tea in particular has many health benefits, including modest risk reduction of cancer, diabetes, arthritis, cardiovascular disease, stroke, genital warts, and obesity. I think it’s safe to say that if you only had one thing to do every day you probably wouldn’t feel anxious or stressed out. This is why, as hard at it might be, it is so important for your anxiety levels that you learn how to say “no.” Or an alternative that a therapist friend recommends, described shortly. Often, we say yes to things simply because we do not want to hurt someone’s feelings or we feel we should be able to do all things for everyone all the time. If you have a hard time saying “no” you might find it easier to say “probably not” instead. Alternatively, lower belly breathing stimulates your vagus nerve, helping to counteract the sympathetic nervous system by triggering the parasympathetic nervous system. If you think you don’t have time to devote to deep breathing and meditation, start with 5 minutes. Most of us like quick fixes but with this article, more than anything, I want to show you that there are natural ways to control your anxiety before resorting to medication.
As a yoga instructor and functional medicine practitioner, I love the studies I’ve described; however, I am not suggesting that you dump your drugs without first consulting your clinician. The heart is a fist-sized organ which lies within the chest behind the breastbone (sternum). The right side of the heart receives blood lacking oxygen (deoxygenated blood) from the body.
The heart works by following a sequence of electrical signals that cause the muscles in each chamber to contract in a certain order. The electrical impulse gets to the atrioventricular node (AV node) at the lower right atrium. Even before physical activity begins, your heart may speed up in anticipation of what is to come. The body also has other receptors which measure levels of chemicals, such as carbon dioxide, in your blood. Other hormones, such as those from the thyroid gland, can also influence your heart rate, as can certain substances found in your blood.
The most important function of the cardiovascular system (the heart and blood vessels together) is to keep blood flowing through capillaries. The left coronary artery quickly splits into two and supplies the rest of the heart muscle.
The main coronary arteries divide into many smaller branches to supply all the heart muscle.

In fact, from a more Eastern perspective, any time you move away from a feeling of peace, you are experiencing a form of anxiety.
Anxiety is a normal response to a stressor, but when prolonged and hard to control, it can become pathological. Anxiety disorders affect about 40 million adults in the United States and even though it is highly treatable only about one affected person in three get treatment.
They are designed to give you a quick boost of energy when you need to flee a dangerous situation. For this reason your cortisol levels can remain at “high alert” status even when you are just feeling a little anxious and are not actually in danger.  This is an unfortunate artifact of our ancient nervous system.
There are several things you can do to prevent these anxiety related symptoms from happening to you. Just like your car needs fuel to run properly, so does your brain and it is important that you do not dismiss the importance of regular and nutrient-dense eating. Insulin will then work overtime to reduce your blood sugar quickly often leaving your blood sugar lower than it was to begin with. It still contains a small amount of caffeine, which I find it is enough to feel noticeably more alert but without the anxiety. Research shows that multitasking is associated with poor attention skills, depression, anxiety, and a decrease in gray matter density in the brain. Deep breathing also causes the release of your body’s own form of valium, a neurotransmitter called GABA (short for gamma-aminobutyric acid). One study found that as little as 8 weeks of meditation may significantly increase cortical density.

For example, studies show that yoga is as or more effective than tranquilizers such as Xanax or Ativan.

Essential to life, the heart beats continuously, pumping the equivalent of more than 14,000 litres of blood every day. The heart sits on the main muscle of breathing (the diaphragm), which is found beneath the lungs. The atria are both supplied by large blood vessels that bring blood to the heart (see below for more details). After passing through the right atrium and right ventricle this blood is pumped to the lungs. There are five main types of blood vessels: arteries, arterioles, capillaries, venules and veins.
They have very thin walls which allow nutrients from the blood to pass into the body tissues. These then split into many tiny fibres (the Purkinje system) which carry the electrical impulse throughout the ventricles. The closing of the valves in the heart make the 'lub-dub' sounds that a doctor can hear with a stethoscope. These vessels help to propel blood, even when the heart is not beating, because they have elastic walls which squeeze the blood in them. Certain chemicals in the body can cause our blood vessels either to tighten (contract) or to relax (dilate).
On the other hand, reactive hypoglycemia (blue line) will have larger fluctuations with high blood sugar levels followed by drops.  This is why it is difficult to diagnose because the level could appear normal depending on when it is tested. Today I will show you 5 anxiety hacks you can use to get yourself into a healthier anxiety free state of mind naturally. I am sure you can relate to cramming your schedule so tight that you don’t have enough time to get from point A to point B without running late and feeling anxious. Even just a few minutes of quiet contemplation and deep breathing will help you hit the reset button. In Germany, a group of 24 women with anxiety were randomized to two 90-minute yoga classes per week for 3 months or a wait list. Often, movement is helpful for anxious people, rather than sitting on a cushion and trying to meditate. I suggest that you incorporate these 5 hacks and see if your anxiety lessens, or even that your need for medication falls away.

Arterioles are also capable of constricting or dilating and, by doing this, they control how much blood enters the capillaries.

As physical activity starts, cells of the nervous system which monitor changes in the body (receptors) send signals about the position of your muscles to the brain. Capillary exchange is the process of nutrients passing into the body’s cells and waste products passing out. Arterioles are smaller than arteries and provide the link between the arteries and the capillaries. These are the first arteries to branch off the large artery (aorta)  which takes blood to the body from the left ventricle.
I get overly rev’ed in my body and feel “stressed.” It’s like a throttle that is set a bit too high for my physiology, and my task is to decondition the habitual pattern. Natural hacks work best when you’ve been screened first by a knowledgeable health professional. We know the most adverse symptoms occur in people who are genetically programmed to be slow metabolizers of caffeine. Significant reductions in both anxiety symptoms and salivary cortisol levels were found in the yoga group.

The heart helps to provide oxygen and nutrients to the body's tissues and organs by ensuring a rich supply of blood.
This helps to complement the work of the heart, by squeezing blood along when heart muscle relaxes.
This controls your heart rate.) Each impulse spreads across both atria, which causes them to contract.
However, a thin band of conducting fibres called the atrioventricular bundle (AV bundle) acts like 'wires' and carries the impulse from the AV node to the ventricles.
You might find that managing your cortisol and anxiety levels naturally works even better for you than medication, without unpleasant side effects.
Always speak with your physician or other healthcare professional before taking any medication or nutritional, herbal or homeopathic supplement, or using any treatment for a health problem. Not only do blood vessels carry oxygen and nutrients, they also transport carbon dioxide and waste products away from our cells.
It then passes into the left ventricle and is pumped into the the main artery (aorta) supplying the body. Arteries also respond to signals from our nervous system, either tightening (constricting) or relaxing (dilating). A special part of the brain, called the medulla oblongata, receives information from many different systems of the body.
If you have or suspect that you have a medical problem, contact your health care provider promptly. Carbon dioxide is passed out of the body by the lungs; most of the other waste products are disposed of by the kidneys. The different sections of the heart have to squeeze (contract) in the correct order for the heart to pump blood efficiently with each heartbeat. The brain then co-ordinates the information and either sends signals to increase or decrease the heart rate depending on what is necessary. Do not disregard professional medical advice or delay in seeking professional advice because of something you have read on this web site. Here oxygen and other nutrients pass into the cells where they are used to perform the body's essential functions.
The yoga group had significant improvements in mood and anxiety after only 2.5 weeks in class.
