I completely agree with the perspective presented here. I think that medication is heavily over-prescribed in our society, and from what I've read and seen in my friends' personal experience, I think it is rarely beneficial (and often harmful) in cases of anxiety.

I also like the holistic perspective that is communicated here...especially the idea that we should not rely on a single method of treating anxiety. I have been compiling a collection of natural treatments for anxiety on my personal website, and I come to the same conclusion there. There are so many approaches.

I would also point readers to another article here on EmpowHer, the one by Dr. Emmons about mindfulness to treat anxiety. Thanks for offering this valuable perspective!
