The Anxiety Encyclopedia: Your Path to Recovery (Paperback)
The book that will define a new generation of mental health treatment.This book will answer all of your questions about anxiety: - What mechanism between our brain and body causes it- Why that mechanism goes out of equilibrium in some of us, causing panic, phobias, and obsessive compulsions- How to work your way back to normal using three different therapies and several lifestyle changesThe Anxiety Encyclopedia provides a new scientific model for anxiety that will change the way we look at it. Rather than relying on assumptions about chemical imbalances or family history, it explains anxiety in clear and simple terms: behavior and the hormonal change it causes.With this new model, we can see that adrenaline-the hormone that fuels all of our uncomfortable anxious symptoms, panic attacks, and obsessive compulsions-comes as a result of one specific mental behavior we engage in every day: worrying. The more we worry, the more adrenaline we make, and the worse our symptoms become.However, within this model comes great hope: when we stop worrying, our body slowly stops producing adrenaline, causing the symptoms to go away on their own.This book provides countless methods and lifestyle changes to do just that. Using the techniques in this book, you will be able to gradually reduce the amount you worry, slowly dialing down your body's adrenaline levels and causing all of the symptoms to fall away.No matter how many years you've suffered, nor how many panic attacks you've had, The Anxiety Encyclopedia can help you work your way to being symptom free.
