I would also consider it mental, but like I tell my kids, everything that happens to your heart (emotions) affects the body, and everything that affects the body also has an effect in the brain/emotional selves. If the Primal has been so helpful in ameliorating your panic attacks and depression, which are also mental, why not also nail-biting? Food feeds body better, better nutrition reaches brain, brain says "aahhhhhh". I have had a serious bout of depression in my past, and I definitely can tell that the Primal way of doing food does me good in that department, too.

I have a mantra that I have spouted for years... "If I eat right, I feel right. If I feel right, I exercise right. If I exercise right, I think right. If I think right, I eat right..." Phil-SC
