Anxiety can be successfully treated and completely overcome.
There are many treatments options for anxiety, including medication, talk therapy, and a combination thereof. But not all treatments are equal.
There are two main categories of anxiety treatments:
- Anxiety treatments that focus on symptom reduction
- Anxiety treatments that focus on addressing anxiety’s core causes, which also eliminates symptoms of anxiety
While there are many ways to reduce and eliminate anxiety symptoms (there are a number of natural ways to reduce and eliminate symptoms, many much more effective than taking medication), there is only one way to fully overcome anxiety disorder.
Yes, symptom reduction treatments can help you feel better in the short-term, but unless the underlying causes of anxiety are addressed, anxiety as a condition has the potential to return again and again. Successfully addressing anxiety’s core causes not only ensures symptom reduction and their eventual elimination, but also eliminates the condition for good, therefore, eliminating the probability of it returning.
Anxiety ISN'T something we genetically inherit or an illness or disease we contract. Anxiety is something we create when we behave in an apprehensive manner.
Essentially, we live more stressfully and fearfully than others. As a result, we cause the body more stress and that stress produces symptoms of stress: anxiety symptoms.
While medication and other forms of symptom reduction treatments and remedies can help to diminish anxiety symptoms, they should NEVER be considered as anxiety cures. If the underlying causes of anxiety aren’t successfully addressed, they remain, and consequently, so will the likelihood of symptoms.
Learning what anxiety is, what it does to the mind and body, and more importantly, what you can do to eliminate it, IS the cure.
Knowledge is power, especially as it pertains to anxiety resolution. Once you successfully address the underlying causes of an anxiety condition, it goes away, and consequently, so do its symptoms…and for good!
Don’t let anyone fool you. There aren't any miracle quick-fix cures or “secret remedies or formulas" to eliminate anxiety.
There are, however, many methods, medications, herbs, vitamins, and remedies that may help to diminish anxiety 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, help, and support.
Through our personal and professional experiences with anxiety (all of us at anxietycentre.com have personally experienced debilitating anxiety disorder in our own lives, and have successfully conquered it), the most effective way to overcome anxiety disorder is with the combination of good self-help information and Personal Coaching/Counselling/Therapy (by professional anxiety therapists who have personally lived with AND conquered anxiety in their own lives).
Anxietycentre.com was established for this reason: To help others overcome their anxiety, depression, sleep disorders, and stress so that they can resume their normal lives, as we have.
To that end, we developed the member’s area of our website to include excellent self-help information. Many have conquered their anxiety condition simply by using this information. For example, Chapters Three and Four are MUST READS for anyone with anxiety. This information is crucial to long-term success.
And for those who desire personal help, our Personal Coaches/Counsellors/Therapists are well equipped to help every step of the way. Since we struggled with debilitating anxiety ourselves but have since recovered, we know the way back to normal and lasting health. Our approach isn’t based on theories and education only (our therapists are formally trained as counsellors and have their degrees in this area), but is also based on personal experience with anxiety and recovery. What better way to recover than by working with someone who knows how to do it AND how to maintain normal health.
Because we experienced anxiety, we understand it intimately. Therefore, we aren’t going to be puzzled or stumped by some of your symptoms, experiences, or struggles. And, you don’t have to be embarrassed about talking about anxiety issues with us either, since we’ve experienced them, too. Again, we just didn’t learn or hear about anxiety issues, we lived them.
All of us at anxietycentre.com have overcome our conditions and have remained healthy ever since. So we know what works and what doesn’t work. We also know how to do it, and that anybody can with the right information, help, and support.
Many of our members and clients, those who have often tried every other option, continually tell us that we provide the best form of anxiety treatment.
So we encourage you, don’t suffer needlessly. And don’t waste any more time or money on “quick-fix cures” because they don’t work in the long-term. Do it right, and once and for all. You are worth it! Living a normal and healthy life is attainable, and anyone can do it with the right help.
