Anxiety is something we all experience. It can alert us to danger or to situations in our environment that make us feel uncomfortable. When it does this anxiety can be a useful tool. Occasionally, however, anxiety is experienced with an intensity that undermines our sense of wellbeing, causes us to think obsessively or negatively impacts the health of our bodies. When this is the case anxiety can be far more of a challenge. In addition to this, excessive worry impedes our body’s ability to heal itself effectively.
