We deal with stress in different ways -- for over 18 million Americans, anxiety is an all too familiar experience which worsens in stressful times. Anxiety as a symptom is a reminder that we need to tend to our mental health just as acutely as we would attend to our physical health. Broken bone, sore throat, obsessive worrying -- all are equally important and should be appropriately addressed.
What are the symptoms of anxiety?
What are natural treatments for anxiety? This is a question I frequently get in my office. There is no one-size-fits-all answer, which makes it difficult but also a fun challenge. Each patient is different, so each patient’s anxiety will present differently and will be treated differently as well.
