This course teaches the diagnosis and treatment of Anxiety Disorder using Oriental Medicine’s 5 Element Patterns. Anxiety is a very common human experience. Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S., affecting 40 million adults in the United States age 18 and older (that is 18.1% of U.S. population).
At some point or the other, we will all experience the effects of anxiety in various circumstances. It is a physiological state characterized by cognitive, somatic, emotional, and behavioral components. These components combine to create the feelings that we typically recognize as anger and know as fear, apprehension, or worry. Anxiety is often accompanied by physical sensations such as heart palpitations, nausea, chest pain, shortness of breath, stomach aches, or headache.
These disorders cost the U.S. more than $42 billion a year, almost one-third of the country’s $148 billion total mental health bill, according to a study commissioned by ADAA and published in The Journal of Clinical Psychiatry. More than $22.84 billion of those costs are associated with the repeated use of health care services; people with anxiety disorders seek relief for symptoms that mimic physical illnesses. Learn about the 6 types of anxiety disorders, including PTSD, panic disorder, phobias and how to treat the condition quickly and effectively using easy treatment protocols based on the diagnosed 5 Elemental Pattern. Includes an ear acupuncture point protocol based on Chinese Medicine’s ancient 5 Elemental Pattern System.
