Welcome to your first step to fighting anxiety.. or maybe your 100th!
My name is Taylor Marae, I am a registered dietitian with a Masters in Science and Nutrition specifically focused on functional nutrition/mental health. I have a passion for the connection between mental health, what you eat, lifestyle and healing the body holistically. Why I have this passion is because of my past. In 2014 I was hit with debilitating health anxiety/panic disorder/general anxiety. What gave me anxiety? EVERYTHING. One time I went to petsmart and had a panic attack.. like come on it’s a dog shop how could you possibly have a panic attack! Yet, I did! I have in the past diagnosed myself with everything you can think of and experienced countless symptoms of death ridden illnesses… none of which I have but the symptoms that anxiety and panic disorder brings sure made me feel and think I do. I went to countless emergency rooms, doctor visits, and had countless tests done. I got all of this done just to show me that- NOTHING WAS PHYSICALLY WRONG WITH ME. However, no matter the amount of tests or doctors nothing could convince me I was okay. Let’s be honest, with anxiety nothing feels okay. Mentally however, I was in a bad state. My anxiety was manifesting itself into crippling symptoms such as daily headaches, weird tingling feelings, off balance like I was walking on a boat, heart palpitations, chest pain, dizziness, feeling out of control, doomed feeling, shortness of breath, and much more. All of which led me to agoraphobia: I got to the point of not being able to leave the house due to fear of dropping dead or panicking in public. Everywhere I went I had to know where the closest emergency room was or hospital (ya know just in case- always felt I needed my “safety net”). It wasn’t living, it was like I was already dead. I got to the point where I was so scared of dying that I was not living. Every single day was just another panic attack. Now, I am panic attack free. My last panic attack was almost 4 years ago, and I have never felt better emotionally or physically. Do I still have anxious thoughts or fears? Of course! It is normal to have a certain extent of worry! However, today I eat better than ever and workout harder than ever and live better than I ever have. I want you to feel the same way I do and find that light at the end of the very dark tunnel. So, I decided to dedicate my life and use my knowledge to help you find your way out of your dark tunnel as well. With my nutritional expertise, anxiety experience and coaching abilities I want to help you revamp your diet and supplementations, adding talk sessions, and constructing an anxiety plan for you to reach a “better than ever” mental health status, just like me. Together we can find a plan that works for you. Check out the Anxiety Help tab and let’s do this together. You deserve to find your release from your peak of panic. Still confused?
