Integrative Approaches to Anxiety
with Anju Usman Singh, MD, FAAFP
Anxiety seems to me a pervasive and chronic in many individuals on the Autism Spectrum. Although medications can be helpful, they do not solve underlying causes. Dr. Usman Singh will discuss an integrative multidisciplinary approach to alleviating symptoms of overworrying and overthinking. Addressing underlyiing triggers such as chronic inflammation, persistent infections, and metal/mold toxicity can be helpful. However, the gut brain connection is a key player in neurotransmission. Implementing specific dietary recommendations and working on SIBO/SIFO/dysbiosis can be extremely helpful in alleviating symptoms of anxiety.
