Understanding Anxiety

There are many effective strategies that can work for anxiety without knowing anything about neurotransmitters or anxiety theories. However, having a greater understanding of anxiety can profoundly improve the effectiveness of the strategies we use. Understanding not only how to do a specific technique but also why it works can lead to a more focused effort in overcoming anxiety.

For example; if we understand the causes and types of anxiety we can better utilize the proper treatments, strategies, medications or supplements that best fit our particular issues. We can also reduce our “anxiety about anxiety” as we begin to understand anxiety better. Having knowledgeable information about anxiety – information such as how anxiety works in the brain or common anxiety symptoms – can help us learn to no longer fear anxiety but see it for what it is.

Knowledge is power and with anxiety it can even help us toward the path to healing!
