Parasites

Has anyone that's had anxiety traced it back to a possible parasite infection?

Interesting idea, though unlikely

parasitic infections - worms in the gut - can cause vitamin and mineral deficiencies - and it is a potential cause of B12 deficiency (one of the symptoms of which would be anxiety). However, it is very rare though more common in Scandinavian countries.
