Do you have anxiety in Denver? Read this article to learn about the options you have.
Anxiety is a normal reaction to stress. In small doses, stress can help you get things done or resolve issues that are staggering your life.
What relieves stress is not the same for everyone. Making certain lifestyle changes is the best start. Start with eating a well-balanced, healthy diet (if possible, organic) as well as getting enough sleep and exercise, Also, limit caffeine and alcohol intake and don’t use nicotine, cocaine, or other street drugs. We will go a step further and recommend reducing gluten, dairy, processed foods and sugar to improve your digestion and immune system.
For some people, anxiety persistently interferes with daily activities such as work, school or sleep. This type of anxiety can disrupt relationships and enjoyment of life, and over time it can lead to health concerns and other problems.
In some cases, anxiety is a mental health condition that requires treatment. Generalized anxiety disorder, for example, is characterized by persistent worry about major or minor concerns. Other anxiety disorders — such as panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) — have more-specific triggers and symptoms. Sometimes, anxiety results from a medical condition that needs treatment.
