Anxiety

ANXIETY

Condition Description

A state of anxiety and panic without obvious reason (also nervousness and irritability)

Common Symptoms

Varying levels are sometimes uncontrollable nervousness, agitation, worry, and fear, which can lead to hyperventilation, body tingling, lightheadedness, chest pain, rapid and pronounced heartbeat and other symptoms.

Underlying Causes

Such symptoms may be triggered by psychological and emotional factors but there are several physical causes that can lead to these symptoms

  • Excess caffeine intake
  • Excess sugar intake
  • Poor diet full of additives and preservatives
  • SIFO (small intestinal fungal overgrowth)
  • Food sensitivities.
  • Hormonal imbalances.
  • Nutritional deficiencies like deficiencies in protein, magnesium and calcium.
  • Hormonal imbalances in women.

Conventional treatment

Consist of pharmaceutical interventions, which include anti-anxiety medicines like Fluoxetine, Sertraline and Venlafaxine.

EHC approach

  • Dietary interventions include cutting down on caffeine, sugar, food additives and preservatives
  • Look for nutritional deficiencies like magnesium and zinc and treat accordingly.
  • If history is suggestive of SIFO (small intestinal fungal overgrowth or yeast overgrowth), treat with antifungal medicine like nystatin
  •  Hidden food sensitivities: Look for hidden food sensitivities and if found eliminate those foods from the diet

Story:

“I have only just been seeing Dr. Sultan for 6 weeks. I came to him with a very long list of complaints. Severe and agonizing stomach pains, chronic fatigue, insomnia, joint/ muscle pains, the list goes on. For approximately 5 years I felt like I was barely living. I was depressed, exhausted, in pain and confused as to why doctors could not help me. I was also skeptical of what Dr. Sultan said he could do. Today just 6 weeks since starting treatment. I came to the office gleaming! I am already feeling much better! I was able to mark numerous improvements on my charts rather than countless complaints. Those agonizing stomach pains are essentially gone! Joint and muscle pain over 75% better. I am sleeping more sound and although I am still experiencing fatigue it is improving day by day. Although my life circumstances remain the same, I find myself handling anxiety and depression far better. I am very much looking forward to continuing treatment and feeling better and healthier through it! Dr. Sultan has my complete trust!” April 2018

Story:

"I came to Dr. Sultan feeling the most sick in my life. Chronic fatigue, recurrent yeast infections, premenstrual symptoms, giving me anxiety that was debilitating. With his help and sticking to a healthy diet, I feel so much better. It has been a journey but I see light at the end of this tunnel. I feel less tired, have more energy, and slowly but surely getting back to my normal self. I appreciate all of Dr. Sultan's help, I feel as though he truly wants me to get better and is doing all he can to get me there. I would recommend him to anyone having issues that conventional doctors don't seem to find or treat." October 20, 2018

Initials:

V.B.

Age:

32

Story:

For over 5 years, I had experienced severe chronic headaches, excessive fatigue and severe PMS, anxiety, depression, and pain. After a 6-week bout of severe depression and about 20 Tylenol tablets each day, I decided I couldn’t live like that anymore. My 4 children needed a “real” mother, not the irritable and sad person I’d been for 5 years. In desperation, I contacted Dr. Sultan. Now, eight months later, I have been able to expand my career as a labor assistant and lactation consultant, since for the first time in my life I have the energy most other “normal” people have. But most of all, my kids now have a mom who has the energy to “run around” and play with them, and who is no longer irritable and “snapping” at them all the time. My headaches and PMS problems are almost completely gone. Now I can finally have the career I wanted, helping people with birth and babies, and above all, I have the loving family and home atmosphere I’ve always dreamed of.

 

Condition Treated:

 

Gut Health, Wrongly suspected PANDAS and OCD

Symptoms:

Anxiety, OCD

Initials:

M.S.

Age:

11

Story:

“Our child was struggling with anxiety and OCD. Upon doing some research we found Dr. Sultan's name on a website associated with PANDAS. After our initial visit we were able to determine our child did not have PANDAS, but in fact an imbalance of the gut. We began some blood work to determine levels. We began allergy shots and taking vitamins. We've been watching diet and cutting out sugar. With the help of Dr. Sultan and his knowledge of "gut health" we were able to determine what was wrong. We are currently symptom free and maintaining well with the follow-up appointments with Dr. Sultan. We can't thank him enough for all that he has taught us.” August 2019

Dr. Sultan's Comments: PANDAS is a rare disease. You should always look for other causes that are much more common than PANDAS for such neuropsychiatric symptoms like OCD, anxiety, depression. Always, the key question is: have we ruled out all non-PANDAS causes! Though parents suspected PANDAS but were not hooked on that diagnosis. They were open-minded and wanted to look from all angles. That's the key to success

 

Condition Treated:

Andropause or Hypogonadism (in Males)

Symptoms:

Depression and Hearing Voices, Male Menopause

Initials:

G.O.

Age:

43

Story:

Since coming to Dr. Sultan, I have had reduced anxiety and reduced depression. I hardly every hear voices any more. The doctor has also helped me to fight Andropause (male menopause). The testosterone injections have really helped me to return to feeling normal again. When I started seeing the doctor, I could barely sit still – my anxiety was so great. I now feel a whole lot better. This is something my psychiatrist was unable to fix. The medications he had me on were even undoubtedly part of the cause of my anxiety and Andropause. With the help of Dr. Sultan, I will try to get off the psych meds as soon as possible.
