Don't Let Anxieties Overwhelm Your Physical Health Too!

Just as positive emotions work wonders for your health, carrying around anxieties -- just like depression -- can hasten such physical problems as thyroid disease, arthritis and gastrointestinal issues, just to name a few.

Canadian researchers sifted through medical data on some 4,200 German patients collected from 1997-99, paying close attention to data on individual physical exams, responses to a pair of surveys about 44 specific health conditions and quality of life and psychiatric interviews devised to spot signs of anxiety disorders.

More than 8 percent of the patients surveyed suffered from an anxiety disorder, and having one was associated with any kind of physical problem (both within the previous month). And, most patients who suffered from both sets of problems, developed anxiety problems first.

Sounds a great deal like the study I posted last year about negative emotions slowing down your body's natural ability to heal. Again, the trick about anxiety: Finding the right tool that adjusts your body's ability to tolerate stress, and not to rely on a toxic, useless antidepressant.

Take advantage of one of the most powerful and completely natural methods to treat your emotions by learning how to use the Emotional Freedom Technique.
