Since the middle of the 20th century we've been living in the Age of Anxiety, says accomplished health journalist Stephanie Marohn. The incidence of anxiety disorders has risen dramatically in the last 50 years to the point where they are now the most common "mental" illness. One out of nine Americans suffers from it. Anxiety is a disorder with many faces, such as generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, phobias, posttraumatic stress disorder, and social anxiety disorder. The Natural Medicine Guide to Anxiety persuasively shows how natural approaches can successfully put an end to all these types of anxiety. Marohn draws on some of the leading natural medicine practitioners and experts who use a range of effective natural treatments to end anxiety. The ten healers profiled in this book call upon an array of therapies including acupuncture, homeopathy, heavy metal detoxification, neural therapy, herbal medicine, flower essences, visceral manipulation, and psychological techniques. Numerous vivid, real-life case histories reveal how these natural approaches get to the heart of an anxiety disorder and produce lasting relief. This combination of proven, successful natural therapies covers the spectrum of body, mind, and spirit -- all the factors that produce anxiety. "By offering a comprehensive and deep approach to healing," says Marohn, "these therapies have the potential to help you find your way to a life free of the anxiety and fear that prevent you from living fully."
