Is the Average Person at Risk of Suffering from Anxiety?
SAN DIEGO, June 12 /PRNewswire/ -- A quiet church volunteer in England became an overnight sensation after her stunning appearance on a popular U.K. TV talent show. Within 24 hours the entire world knew who she was, and a video clip of her performance had racked up millions of hits. Since then she has been on a crash course in becoming a celebrity, but the sudden tsunami of international attention and stress has taken its toll on the mild-mannered singer. By the end of the program, the pressure had become too much and she was taken to a clinic after having an anxiety attack.
Approximately 30 million people in the U.S. have anxiety symptoms each year, and a large percentage of those people self-medicate using drugs or alcohol. It can hit suddenly, even if someone has never had symptoms before.
Stress expert, counselor, and speaker Josh Meyers has helped hundreds of people to overcome anxiety. He knows the triggers for anxiety, both genetic and environmental, that can cause people to lapse into years of anxiety and rob them of a fulfilling life. It doesn't necessarily take a traumatic event for a person to suffer from sudden anxiety attacks. It can hit anyone, anytime, for a variety of reasons. Invite Meyers to answer:
-- Why do some anxiety sufferers go undiagnosed for so long? -- Do more people have anxiety now or is society just more aware? -- How does nutrition factor into the management of anxiety? -- What role should anxiety medication play in treatment? -- Why do so many doctors offer such a limited range of treatments? -- What is it like to experience an anxiety attack?
CREDENTIALS: Through Josh Meyers' lifelong struggle with anxiety he tried everything to bring his life into balance. It was finally his father, a physician, who developed a program to conquer anxiety.
