This book is a great compilation of lots of research and common sense suggestions for overcoming anxiety without the need for medication. I picked up this book because I needed a long-term solution for anxiety. I see medication as a short term fix. The lifestyle changes suggested in the book will only work if you put them to action. I think most of us know that changing our diet, exercising, simplifying and taking some time out daily will do a world of good. But the book gives research-based rea ...more

I started this book in 2014 but only read 20 pages in & skipped around to check out what it had to offer. I picked it up again on January 17th but didn't have much time to get through it because of work. It only took about five days worth of reading

This book contains a lot of helpful information, especially for people who prefer not to take pharmaceuticals for anxiety. I knew a lot of the information presented before I read this book but it served as an excellent reminder. I particular

I always read self-help books even though I know I don't like self help books.... This one was no different than all the others. There were some good points, but these were things I generally already practice. This book seemed to be for people who are desperately out of control and in need of help simply to get a grasp on their anxiety. Nothing new here. Luckily it was short, large print, and widely spaced.

This book is a basic overview of all things that can cause stress and how to counteract . It goes into details for those who want the information at hand , not just a resource to know where to look next . Interesting read if you're into health and nutrition or if you're suffering from anxiety and may have other medical problems such as hypoglycemia or allergies .

Good book about ways to treat anxiety without medication. Some good info. about correcting thought distortions, diet and nutrition, exercise, herbal and dietary supplements, meditation, progressive muscle relaxation, alternative medicine, yoga, spiritualism, etc.

Overlapping symptoms can be confusing. Add some B-vitamins and maybe all will turn out alright?

At least, there are three distinct ways to spend time relaxing I take from this book: rest (not physically active); recreation (fun activity); relationship (bonding).

Common sense and very helpful! Echoed all the things my holistic nurse/nutritionist told me about managing my anxiety, so it is a great reference book for me.
