Join Susannah Lawson and learn how much of anxiety is in your mind, and how much of it is led by physical imbalances. Susannah will help you understand why you might be prone to anxiety and how you can use nutrition and HeartMath breathing techniques to overcome anxiety. We will cover a wide range of root causes of anxiety from blood sugar imbalance and adrenal stress dysregulation to nutrient deficiencies, to show you that there is more to mental health than just talk therapy. We will then end with a group HeartMath exercise so that you can harness your breath for immediate relief of anxiety symptoms.

About HeartMath

HeartMath is a breathing meditation that focuses on the heart rate, which can be used to help you quickly shift from feeling anxious and stressed to feeling calm. HeartMath is science-based and used worldwide by health professionals, hospitals and clinics. The breathing techniques used in HeartMath are designed to align your physical, mental and emotional systems to work in sync.

We will have a 15 minute Q&A at the end. If you have any questions for Susannah, please send them to in advance.

Help HeartMath, help Food for the Brain

As we learnt in the Overcoming Anxiety webinar, stress is one of the biggest root causes behind anxiety. Managing stress and your body’s response to stress is vital in helping you beat anxiety.

HeartMath research has demonstrated that the signals your heart sends to your brain can profoundly influence perception, emotions, behaviour, performance and health.
