Zandra had managed to avoid uncomfortable situations most of her life where she felt her social anxiety kicking in.
Lately it seemed to be worse and harder to avoid those situations, especially at work.
She told us that she had always been uncomfortable talking to strangers, particularly in a business setting.
Her job required more of that type of interaction these days and she was ‘freaking out about it’, she said.
Zandra had found us online when she read my post about our new Quick Start Session where you can quickly stabilize your emotions through the use of amino acids while you dig deeper to uncover the physiological cause of those emotions.
When I talked with Zandra, she explained that she had always felt anxiety in social situations, but it had become more crippling lately.
She been through a traumatic situation in recent years and felt that she was still recovering from it.
Zandra signed up for a Quick Start Session.
She took our Stress Assessment Test and based on those results, we determined which amino acids and supplements would likely benefit her the most.
After a discussion about her past experiences with supplements and medications, she was ready for an amino acid trial.
Is it Genetic?
In the meantime, Zandra and I talked about the genetic condition known as Pyroluria (aka Kryptopyrroles).
It manifests itself in Social Anxiety.
This condition causes low Vitamin B6 and Zinc, both of which are vitally necessary for the calming neurotransmitters in the brain.
There is a lab test for it.
However, the treatment is so simple that most people simply take Vitamin B6 and Zinc to determine if that helps their symptoms.
Zandra read more about Pyroluria in my post and further information from Trudy Scott, CN on her anxiety-related site, EveryWomanOver29.
We discussed starting dosages of Vitamin B6 (or P5P) and Zinc, how to determine the correct dosage, and recommended brands.
GLA, an omega-6 fatty acid, is also helpful in this situation.
Zandra reported back to me later that she was feeling MUCH better just taking the B6/Zinc/GLA combination and used amino acids immediately prior to a social situation.
She said that she didn’t have that horrible feeling of dread and panic for days before a social event anymore.
It was not something she looked forward to, by any means, but it no longer overwhelmed her like it had in the past.
I was glad to hear that Zandra had made so much progress so quickly.
