Anxiety is a very common thing that people suffer from today, & it is not confined to only adults.
There are several different types of anxiety, but the most common type we see is called Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD).
Symptoms are many & varied, including:
- Chest tightness
- Muscular twitching & limb jerking
- Digestive disturbances
- Short temper, concentration & memory lapses, confusion, fatigue & loss of humour, to name a few.
Anxiety can come on suddenly, especially after a major event or life change, or it can be of gradual onset, occurring covertly over many years.
Very often the person is unaware of the condition, mistaking the physical symptoms for something that they perceive as life-threatening. This adds to the anxiety & can be quite frightening.
This slow onset is where “from little things big things grow”.
Sometimes the person can be so fragile & sensitive that any form of intensity, emotional or physical, can trigger symptoms that feel they have no control over.
Over the years Guy Jefferson and Innate Health Solutions have helped many people with anxiety disorders recover their life balance & health in a few naturopathic consultations.
The combination of EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), which is a technique where the person learns to tap on certain parts of the face & upper body, CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy), a therapy which changes the way we perceive events in our lives, & some nutritional support invariably form a successful combination to overcome anxiety.
