Anxiety is often known for the physical symptoms that accompany the illness, such as the feeling of butterflies in the stomach, rapid heartbeat, sweaty hands and tension when someone is sensing a level of danger. Anxiety allows the mind and body to prepare to go into action and face any threatening situation. Anxiety at a healthy level can help the individual cope under stress.
For those with an anxiety disorder, however, this emotion can create an opposite effect and prevent an individual from coping but rather cause disruptions in their daily life. Anxiety can present in the form of different disorders such as Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Panic Attacks or Social Anxiety with each having its own distinct features. Therapeutic treatment can help individual’s mange the symptoms of anxiety and restore balance back into their life.
