What causes anxiety symptoms and who is at risk?

Jenny Saunders

"Anxiety symptoms can be terrifying, frustrating and tiring. The information you are about to read is the most important information and solution to anxiety disorders and it's symptoms that I have ever come across. The treatment of anxiety disorders and symptoms isn't complex, in fact it's very simple. I never thought it was possible that a disorder like anxiety, that is considered to be so complex can be cured so simply... now I help people become 100% anxiety free."

Jenny Saunders BSc, Msc, Psychologist


Anxiety symptoms are caused by anxiety disorders. These disorders occur because of a shift in the way the 'anxiety switch' called the Amygdala (a small organ in the subconscious brain), reacts.

So, if a treatment for anxiety symptoms is to be effective it shouldn't concentrate directly on the symptoms or the catalyst of the first anxiety experienced, it should address the ROOT CAUSE of the anxiety disorder - the inappropriate reaction of the Amygdala.

Everyone experiences anxiety symptoms during their lives, most people are able to rationalize it away. Anxiety symptoms result from an abnormal raise in the levels of adrenaline in the blood which sets off a 'chain reaction' of normal but inappropriate reactions; these cause powerful and disturbing anxiety symptoms.

Some people experience anxiety symptoms without an obvious cause: so-called 'free-floating' anxiety symptoms, which may be intermittent (i.e. coming and going) or persistent. Others have 'situational anxiety' in which the anxiety symptoms are clearly related to a particular situation.

Some people may have anxiety symptoms of panic attacks with feelings of terror, impending doom, breathlessness and chest pain.

Can anxiety symptoms harm me?

No! Anxiety symptoms have never harmed anyone. Although they feel horrific and scary, anxiety symptoms are harmless and are simply exaggerated experiences of normal bodily sensations and reactions.

Of all the people that I have spoken to about their own anxiety symptoms, none, including myself, ever came to any harm.

Do I have to put up with my anxiety symptoms?

NO! Anxiety symptoms are caused by your anxiety condition which, no matter how severe, can be quickly and permanently treated. This will allow you to continue your life without anxiety, free from the anxiety symptoms that make your life so difficult.
