Anxiety disorders are treatable, but only one-third of those who are suffering receive proper treatment.According to the American and Depression Association of America anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S and affects 40 million adults. However, even though anxiety disorders are treatable, only one-third of those who are suffering receive proper treatment.Unfortunately if you present to your doctor with symptoms of anxiety, most will offer you prescriptions like Valium, Xanax, antianxiety, and antidepressants. These are often not only addictive and ineffective but also rife with side effects.Fortunately if you're suffering from anxiety, there are natural therapies that can be as or even more effective while treating the underlying causes. For example your anxiety can be caused from adrenal fatigue, hormone imbalances, or from a thyroid condition. During an anxiety attack, you may feel powerless. However through a process called centering, you can be in the midst of anxiety but in the center of the chaos you can find a sense of calm. What about natural supplements?
