I am 37 and have IBS for 17 years now. My experience is that using Ayurveda principles helps a lot in controlling digestion in different seasons and anxiety is related to how your gut is behaving. For example - there are some foods which are cooling in nature and that attribute produces more gas in digestion. Avoid such foods especially in winters when the weather is also cold. Excess of gas formation in gut and its spread to other body parts is what causes anxiety. And more anxiety causes more gut and gas issues. Its a vicious circle. A calming ayurveda therapy like shiro-dhara has helped me with anxiety, though it is a bit slow process (2-3 months for impact to start happening) and needs repeat sessions (once a month) and a bit expensive ($100-150 a session). But you would have lasting impact on controlling your anxiety and emotions and start enjoying your life and controlling your thoughts. Happy to share more if you have any questions.
