What is anxiety anyway? Natural Anxiety is usually caused by a feeling of danger, the body’s alarm system goes off and warns us of possible intruders, dangerous situations etc.  Anxiety is a chronic fear that hinders our ability to carry out normal functions. Anxiety is also usually accompanied by panic attacks.

Natural anxiety is known to cause toxic levels of adrenalin in the blood and acids in the stomach. Ulcers are also common, so are hypertension, stroke, asthma and heart attack. Alcohol, substance abuse and other forms of addictions are erroneously thought to dull the emotions, but sadly these dirty habits only make them worse by decreasing rational judgement and therefore exposing the sufferer to even grater danger.

Anxiety disorders are very real and have serious health consequences. A person who suffers from anxiety usually lives in fear of absolutely nothing! It is sad to see that people just lose out on the great things about life. A person who has social anxiety avoids people, how do we plan to make the world a better place to live when some people simply avoid other people. It is up to the sufferer to say NO to anxiety and take charge of his or her life by not allowing fear to rule over him or her.
