Overview

Twenty-five million Americans suffer from diagnosable anxiety disorder, and our cultural climate seems to breed more apprehension and fear with each passing day. It is no surprise that international pharmaceutical companies spend billions each year to research and develop psychoactive drugs that counter psychological symptoms. Unfortunately, there doesn't appear to be any magic pill for people who are chronically anxious. Successful treatments that rely on drugs have an extremely high incidence of relapse, and the side effects of most prescription anti-anxiety drugs are as debilitating as the disorder itself.

From the best-selling author of The Anxiety and Phobia Workbook and a naturopathic physician, this book helps you develop a treatment strategy for anxiety that is totally drug-free. The authors begin with an introduction to healthy lifestyle choices. Then they discuss a variety of conditions that can aggravate anxiety-related problems. They provide an overview of complimentary approaches to anxiety treatment using herbs and supplements, massage, chiropractic, and homeopathy. In later chapters, learn about controlling body toxicity.

    Best insight on a very scary disorder, which in turn makes it less scary!

    The book is so easy to read first of all.Having the tools to deal with anxiety helps one to overcome it easier.With understanding the different causes and affects that trigger this illness comes a relief that one is able to gain back control.The best part of this book is the chapter on coping mechanisms.When you give people tools they can't help but start the repair job!!

    Good, Calming Book

    I have had panic attacks and anxiety since I was 13 and it was treated by drugs...Now I'm 19 years old and my anxiety has turned into full blown panic attacks. This book is good in reassuring that panic attacks are not dangerous and gives you detailed ways to control it when it happens. I keep the book with me constantly when I do have a panic attac. Also a good book on understanding whats really going on with your body and mind when you do have anxiety and panic attacks.
