Anxiety Cures, anxiety cure

Anxiety cures: The truth about anxiety cures, and what you should know about them!

Anxiety occurs when we behave apprehensively. Behaving apprehensively activates a self-protection mechanism designed to alert us to, and protect us from, danger: the stress response. We need it to survive and remain healthy and safe. Therefore, anxiety can’t be cured or eliminated. It's an integral part of our survival mechanism.

So be wary of those who claim “anxiety cures” or “miracle or secret remedies or treatments.” There aren’t any.

But YES, problematic anxiety can be overcome so that it doesn't disrupt a normal lifestyle. And YES, you can live a normal life again. Anxiety DOESN'T have to be a disorder.

Anxiety turns into a disorder when being anxious interferes with a normal lifestyle.

The good news is that while anxiety is a protection mechanism we need, it doesn’t have to turn into or remain a disorder. When it does become a disorder, it can be successfully overcome.

Anxiety ISN’T something we genetically inherit or an illness or disease we contract. Anxiety is something we produce. We produce anxiety by the way we’ve learned to live and interact in the world.

Essentially, we live more stressfully and fearfully than others. And as a result, we cause the body more stress and that stress produces symptoms of stress: anxiety symptoms.

While medication can help to diminish symptoms, medication should NEVER be considered as a cure. Because once you stop medication, and if you haven’t adjusted they way you live, your symptoms will return again in time, and often, over and over again.

Learning what anxiety is, what it does to the mind and body, how you produce it, and more importantly, what you can do to eliminate it as a condition, IS the cure.

Once you learn how to stop producing anxiety, anxiety as a condition goes away, and consequently, so do the symptoms.

It’s also important to recognize that many treatments that claim to be anxiety cures only address the symptoms that result from an anxiety disorder. Unfortunately, they do nothing to address the real cause. These methods should be approached with caution and discernment, as there are many ways of reducing and eliminating symptoms without having to spend money (many are natural and practical things anyone can do - we have a long list of natural and practical things you can do to reduce and eventually eliminate anxiety symptoms in the member's area of our website).

While there are many ways to reduce and eliminate anxiety symptoms, there is only one way to fully resolve anxiety when it turns into a disorder (condition). And that is by successfully addressing the core causes of the anxiety disorder by accessing the right information, help, and support.

There are, however, many methods, medications, herbs, vitamins, and remedies that may help to diminish symptoms, but NONE OF THEM CURE ANXIETY. They may only help to diminish symptoms, but even placebos can do that.

Long-term recovery occurs when you get the right information and learn how to do the right things.

How do we know? All of us at have recovered and remained anxiety condition-free because we learned how. And, anyone can do it with the right information, help, and support.

If you’ve been struggling with anxiety, take control of your life and learn how to recover…and for good.

The member’s area of our web site contains a wealth of information on how you can do that. And if you'd like personal help, we have a professional coaching/counseling/therapy staff to help you every step of the way.

We’ve done it. You can too! Do it right, and for good.

Anxiety recovery isn’t rocket science, but it does take the right information, help, and support. Our members tell us time and time again that we have this combination.

As one of our recent members said, “Your web site is the best, and has the most honest information on the Internet. Believe me, I’ve checked them all out. I’m disgusted with those who promise you a quick-fix cure, and then only to find out it doesn’t work in the long-term. Your program has helped me more in one month that all of the others did in years of trying. It’s a shame that more people don’t try your program. It makes so much sense. Thanks. You guys are the best!” N.B., UK
