What is anxiety?

Anxiety is a common human emotion characterized by feelings of tension, worried thoughts, and physical changes like increased blood pressure. Nearly everyone experiences some anxiety in their life.

There are several types of anxiety disorders:

What causes anxiety? Research suggests genetics and brain chemistry play roles, as well as environmental stressors like trauma, abuse, grief, or chronic stress. Anxiety can also arise spontaneously without an identifiable cause.

Luckily, anxiety is very treatable with professional help. Treatment often includes therapy techniques like cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) as well as anti-anxiety medications like SSRI antidepressants.

At Vital Hormone Clinic, we also find many patients benefit from bioidentical hormone therapy. Our naturopathic doctors can determine if hormone imbalances are contributing to your anxiety and help create an individualized treatment plan.
