Everyone is affected by anxiety, whether their own or that of an anxious loved one, colleague, boss or friend. Nearly 20% of all adults experience an anxiety disorder in any given year - including panic disorder, generalised anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder and related phobias. In PUT ANXIETY BEHIND YOU, naturopathic doctor and licensed acupuncturist, Peter Bongiorno, offers an holistic approach for healing from these disorders and avoiding relapse. In a warm and compassionate tone, this book addresses causes, provides perspective and offers natural remedies that work quickly and without any nasty side effects. Readers will learn about the many possible underlying causes for their anxiety - biochemical, physical, situational, spiritual etc - and will find suggestions for non-pharmaceutical remedies including specific nutrients, plant-based medicines, yoga poses, massage techniques, exercises and acupuncture/acupressure points to try on their own for lasting relief. Bongiorno, also, tackles how to safely wean from antianxiety medication and how to supplement conventional medications with herbal and other natural remedies to increase efficacy and reduce side effects. Dr. Bongiorno recounts his own battle with anxiety and throughout the book shares his own experiences to help readers realise that anxiety can be a positive thing that becomes an inspiration and helps move us forward to a happier, calm life.
