Anxiety is a psychological and physiological state characterized by somatic, emotional, cognitive, and behavioral components. It is the displeasing feeling of fear and concern. Anxiety can create feelings of fear, worry, uneasiness, and dread.
Anxiety is a very negative term, because there is no effective treatment from conventional medical system. Once we are labeled as Anxiety, it means a disaster, failure, hopeless, deteriorating, etc. Although the label is put by Doctors, but endorsed by ourselves, what to complain ?
Every disease is from cognitive perception, we are the ones to let us free from any disease.
In TCM, Anxiety belongs to the spleen disorder, if it involves feeling of fear, then kidney disorder is also possible. Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine, Tui Na are all very good methods to treat Anxiety, but holistic solution tailored to each individual is definitely important as well.
