a. About Anxiety

Anxiety is a general term used for a family of disorders characterized by fear, apprehension, nervousness and worry. Although a normal reaction to stress, it may grow out of control and begin to affect one’s day-to-day living, whereupon it is referred to as an anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorders are the most common form of mental illness in the United States, present in approximately 30% of the adult U.S. population, with many others undiagnosed. Although these disorders are highly remediable, only a third of those afflicted receive any sort of treatment. Untreated, anxiety can feel so overwhelming to the point where it negatively affects one’s work, academics, relationships, or daily life.

Types of anxiety disorders include panic disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), social phobia, other specific phobias, and generalized anxiety disorder (GAD).

b. Symptoms of Anxiety

Symptoms vary across disorders, but may include:
  • Feelings of fear, panic, and agitation
  • Uncontrollable, obsessive thoughts
  • Flashbacks of traumatic experiences
  • Insomnia
  • Nightmares
  • Ritualistic behaviors, such as repeated hand washing
  • Cold or sweaty hands and/or feet
  • Shortness of breath
  • Heart palpitations or irregular heart rhythms
  • Hyperactivity, excess energy, or nervous energy
  • Dry mouth
  • Numbness or tingling in the hands or feet
  • Nausea
  • Muscle tension
  • Dizziness or light-headedness
  • Trembling, shaking, or tremors

c. Causes of Anxiety

Anxiety is caused by a myriad of factors including, but not limited to, environment, medical history, genetics, brain chemistry, substance abuse, or any combination thereof. Most frequently it is triggered by stress occurring in daily life.

Environmental stressors can stem from work, finances, school, personal relationships, or trauma from events such as victimization, bereavement, or abuse. Medical factors that often contribute to anxiety include anemia, asthma, heart conditions, lack of oxygen, infections, and medical illness.

d. Treating Anxiety

Common medications for treating anxiety include anti-anxiety drugs such as benzodiazepines, antidepressant drugs, and beta blockers. Benzodiazepines reduce brain activity to reduce anxiety, an approach that works well but often leads to cognitive side effects such as mental fogginess, lack of coordination, and even depression. Beta blockers work by blocking the effects of the stress hormone adrenaline, thus controlling the physical symptoms of stress (e.g., rapid heart rate, trembling voice, sweating, dizziness, and shaky hands).

Common side effects of many antidepressants (commonly used to treat anxiety) and other anti-anxiety remedies include drowsiness, dizziness, nausea, headaches and fatigue. The resulting grogginess and poor coordination can lead to serious accidents on the road, at work or at home. More serious risks involve impaired judgment, memory loss, depression, hallucinations, and even increasingly agitated behavior such as aggression or mania. Some treatments may also relieve anxiety by blocking feelings of pleasure or pain, leading to emotional numbness and eventual depression.

Most anxiety treatments ease the symptoms of anxiety without consideration of the underlying causes. Common anti-anxiety medicine tends to successfully suppress many physical symptoms (e.g., dry mouth, trembling, sweating), but fail to address any of the mental or emotional aspects of anxiety. Thus although such treatments may provide temporary anxiety relief, they can not be considered long-term cures. Users can easily build a tolerance and/or dependency to such synthetic anti-anxiety treatments, and as such many are only prescribed on a short-term basis.

Natural remedies for anxiety may work less quickly in comparison, but are capable of producing lasting results. Unfortunately, some of these can have complications that may further endanger your health. Some of the most popular herbal anxiety remedies include kava, valerian root, and St. John’s wort. These organic supplements are non-addictive and will cause no withdrawal symptoms. However, each has its complications. For example, Kava and St. John’s wort interact negatively with other medications, which resulted in St. John’s wort being banned in France. In addition, kava cannot be taken with alcohol or if the user has liver complications. Meanwhile, valerian root may cause fatigue to the point of impairment, enough to affect driving or other attention-requiring capabilities.

Alternative relaxation techniques include meditation and electromyography (EMG) biofeedback. EMG biofeedback therapy uses electrodes to monitor muscle relaxation with instant feedback. These therapy techniques can help slow heart rate, lower blood pressure, and ease muscle tension. Over time, biofeedback teaches people to self-monitor muscle relaxation and gain control over these physical functions. Both biofeedback and meditation have proven equally effective in reducing anxiety. However, those with anxiety disorders may find it difficult to stay with a meditation regime, which greatly diminishes its efficacy.

Psychotherapy can also be used alone or in combination with prescription medications to treat anxiety. Psychotherapy involves speaking with a trained mental health care professional to identify the underlying psychological factors that may be triggering anxiety, such as contributing life events or behaviors. After recognizing potential root causes, therapists provide instruction on coping techniques and anti-anxiety problem-solving skills. Effectiveness is dependent on one’s active participation and requires time, willingness, and regularity. Psychotherapy does not provide immediate improvement or short-term alleviation of symptoms, but may be more effective in the long-term.
