What is anxiety?

Anxiety is the natural response of our body to stress; it’s an emotional reaction causing worry, apprehension, fear, and other physical signs about future events.

Most people can experience anxiety at some point in their lives. Fear is a very emotional response to a real or perceived danger or threat; stress happens when our body reacts to those situations.

Since they’re a normal response due to an external cause, a bit of them can keep us safe and alert to potential threats. But, an excessive, intense feeling of fear and constant stress affecting everyday life may be a sign of an anxiety disorder.
In ordinary anxiety, fear and worry relate to specific and real problems, and feelings disappear after events are over.
An anxiety disorder involves excessive worrying about unrealistic future problems. The persistent feeling of dread and apprehension for no reason is hard to control; this state remains even when the situation has been resolved.
From the TCM perspective, anxiety occurs due to an imbalance of complementary forces yin and yang. Disruption in the energy flow –or qi– results in illness, affecting the proper function of internal organs and emotions.

    What causes anxiety?

    Specific causes of anxiety remain unclear, though researchers determine that involves both internal and external factors.

    Mental disorders can run in the family. That may be an inherited factor coming from one or both parents.
    Some individuals are prone to anxiety; inheritance can even increase susceptibility to developing any mental disorder.
