It's a little known fact that 40 million adults suffer from some form of anxiety. That is 18 percent of the adult population of the United States. If you or someone you know is part of that statistic then Overcoming Anxiety is a must-listen.
For many people, more women than men, anxiety can be severely debilitating. It can lead to long-term physical and psychological damage if left untreated. The first step in overcoming your anxiety is to understand it and get a proper diagnosis. Overcoming Anxiety will be a valuable resource on your road to recovery.
In this book you will learn the many causes of anxiety. What kind of stress are you experiencing - acute, episodic, chronic? Recognizing the types of stress you are suffering from can help you and your health-care provider find a more effective treatment.
Overcoming Anxiety will also inform you on how this disorder affects your immune system, blood pressure, digestive tract, and mood. Do you know that any number of anxiety disorders can lead to heart attacks, obesity, headaches, and sleep disorders? In this book you will learn the physical and emotional effects of untreated anxiety disorders and how to get help.
Panic attacks can erode one's joy in life and make you a prisoner in your own home to avoid one being triggered in public. Knowing the symptoms of a panic attack and recognizing when one is imminent can help you avoid or lessen it.
How does anxiety manifest itself physically? Until you realize that an anxiety disorder could be behind your symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome or headaches, you cannot effectively treat both. You will also hear about the dangerous combination of depression and anxiety that can lead to thoughts of suicide and your treatment options.
Finally, you will have a 90-day recovery program outlined in detail, with goals to work toward each day to take control of your anxiety and banish it from your life for good.
