Research supports biofeedback and neurofeedback to be a very effective, safe, treatment to reduce the symptoms of general anxiety. Many people turn to medication to manage their anxiety, but it doesn’t work for everyone. There is significant research indicating that certain parts of the brain are involved in fear and anxiety. The amygdala is specialized for reacting to stimuli and triggering a physiological response, a process that is described as emotion or fear. If the brain is out of balance in this area the physiological response may be out of balance as well. With neurofeedback you can change the way the brain self regulates.
If this area of the brain has an abundance of real fast beta waves the mind may respond to the world around in a chaotic state. This can result in headaches, stomach aches, shortness of breath and nausea.
All of us worry about things like health, money, or family problems. Some of us worry about many things, even when there is little or no reason to worry. If you are very anxious about just getting through the day, and think things will go badly for you with no reason or cause, then you may be experiencing general anxiety. When worry gets in the way of doing every day tasks, going to school or work, or limits your social relationships, something is wrong .
General anxiety often starts during the teen or young adult years. Symptoms may get better or worse at different times, and often worsen during stressful times. People with general anxiety disorder generally worry very much about everyday things, have an inability to relax or calm down, have a hard time falling asleep or staying asleep, have a hard time concentrating, have headaches, muscle aches, stomach aches, or unexplained pains.
