Anxiety Affects Your Brain & Your Nervous System.
"When you're anxious your body is suddenly flooded with norephinephrine and cortisol. In the short term, these hormones are intended to give you an immediate boost, whether it be in perception, reflexes, or mental acuity. In the long term, when anxiety does not go away, it can exhaust your brain and other bodily functions."
"Prolonged anxiety can physically alter the makeup of your amygdala and hippocampus, which are areas of the brain related to an anxiety or stress response."
"While anxiety treatment medication targets these areas of the brain, they aren’t the only way to reach them - Direct Neurofeedback has proved to be a very effective treatment for not only anxiety but also depression, ADHD and the effects of concussions." Dr. D. Dubin, Dubin Clinic L.A.
