Book Description

July 26 2004
Twenty-five million Americans suffer from diagnosable anxiety disorder, and our cultural climate seems to breed more apprehension and fear with each passing day. It is no surprise that international pharmaceutical companies spend billions each year to research and develop psychoactive drugs that counter psychological symptoms. Unfortunately, there doesn't appear to be any magic pill for people who are chronically anxious. Successful treatments that rely on drugs have an extremely high incidence of relapse, and the side effects of most prescription anti-anxiety drugs are as debilitating as the disorder itself.

From the best-selling author of The Anxiety and Phobia Workbook and a naturopathic physician, this book helps you develop a treatment strategy for anxiety that is totally drug-free. The authors begin with an introduction to healthy lifestyle choices. Then they discuss a variety of conditions that can aggravate anxiety-related problems. They provide an overview of complimentary approaches to anxiety treatment using herbs and supplements, massage, chiropractic, and homeopathy. In later chapters, learn about controlling body toxicity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enhancing self-control April 19 2005
By Mark Mills - Published on Amazon.com
This is a wonderfully concise description of options one can employ when faced with unnecessary anxiety or undesired negative self-talk. The book doesn't break a lot of new ground, but does an excellent job of covering everything in a concise, almost reference like, manner. Of particular value is the chapter on dietary supplements: kava, valerian, GABA, inositol, 5-HTP, St. John's wort and others.

4.0 out of 5 stars Magnesium relieved my anxiety as described in this review July 19 2006
By D. R. Schryer - Published on Amazon.com
I am very familiar with the pain of anxiety, panic attacks, and agoraphobia for I suffered from these maladies for several decades. During those years of suffering I believed that my problems were purely mental and underwent treatment by psychiatrists, psychologists, and hypnotherapists. I took various prescribed medications and read many books such as this, but experienced little relief. And then something wonderful happened: I began taking a daily supplement of chelated magnesium (for a different ailment) and shortly thereafter experienced a significant diminishment of anxiety in addition to cure of the ailment for which I had originally taken the supplemental magnesium. There seemed to be no explanation for why taking supplemental magnesium caused this wonderful loss of anxiety until the publication in 2003 of the important book The Miracle of Magnesium by Dr. Carolyn Dean. Early in her book Dr. Dean reveals that a major cause of anxiety and panic attacks is deficiency of magnesium and that magnesium deficiency is quite common in the U.S. Therefore, I beg all sufferers of anxiety, panic attacks, and agoraphobia -- whatever else you may do -- please purchase and read The Miracle of Magnesium by Dr. Carolyn Dean and please try the magnesium supplementation which she recommends. It may change your life as it has changed mine.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT BOOK for people with worry and anxiety. Sept. 11 2010
By Cheryl Ceparano - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Excellent book. I couldn't stop reading it because of all the helpful info. I have the worst anxiety/ ocd/ worry feelings.
It has natural relief techniques as well as talking about medications.

It helps you understand it. Also I would suggest to check out books relating to hypoglycemia, as it correlates with anxiety and ocd issues.

Definitely worth the purchase.

2.0 out of 5 stars Just Okay Aug. 20 2013
By SavvyShopper1 - Published on Amazon.com
Although this book has some good suggestions for mindfulness and stress reducing exercises, I found the causitive medical information and support for the claims in this book weak. The thought replacement suggestions really aren't new. Anxiety is very serious condition and a medical doctor should be sought first to rule out any serious medical conditions first. Trying to self diagnose a condition using a bunch of vitamins and minerals without consulting a medical doctor and psychologist can be dangerous. Some of the vitamins and minerals can actually mask a physical ailment. And some of the herbs recommended in this book are contraindicated when a person is taking certain medications. The bottom line is that natural remedies should be used as an adjunct therapy and should not replace good medical advice as the sub title suggests. Ultimately it is the person with the condition that needs to find the best and most reliable treatment that works for them. However, I do like that this book addresses the whole person and includes mindfulness and spirituality...that is something that our medical system overlooks sometimes.
