Understanding and Treating and Anxiety and Fear

Using Chinese medicine Wu Xing/Five Phase tradition and Yin/Yang theory, Brendan discusses the direct connection between anxiety and fear and the clinical relevance of understanding and treating both conditions.

With the overstimulation that is a cause of anxiety, there can often be a related lack of relaxation which is a cause of fear. This excess heat and Yang that is accompanied by a lack of coolant and Yin is not only an important dynamic in treating both anxiety and fear but very relevant in addressing a wide range of physical, mental and emotional conditions.

Brendan covers the use of western herbs, diet and lifestyle to treat the symptoms and underlying causes of both conditions.
