PUT ANXIETY BEHIND YOU
The Complete Drug-Free Program
Dr. Bongiorno recounts his own battle with anxiety and throughout the book shares his own experiences to help readers realize that anxiety can be an inspiration and helps move us forward to a happier, calm life.
In a warm and compassionate tone, this book addresses causes, provides perspective, and offers natural remedies that work quickly and without any nasty side effects. Readers will learn about the many possible underlying causes for their anxiety--biochemical, physical, situational, spiritual, etc.--and will find suggestions for non-pharmaceutical remedies including specific nutrients, plant-based medicines, yoga poses, massage techniques, exercises, and acupuncture/acupressure points to try on their own for lasting relief. Bongiorno also tackles how to safely wean from anti-anxiety medication and how to supplement conventional medications with herbal and other natural remedies to increase efficacy and reduce side effects.
