In Overthrowing anxiety, Christian Goodman tells you that the cause of an anxiety disorder comes from a place that can be very deep within us. It doesn’t feel like a cut in your arm or a broken bone – it’s clearly visible, easy to diagnose, and fast to fix. Our disorder is hidden. It’s complicated, confusing. Causes of disorders, how it affects us, how we think about ourselves and our world, and the coping mechanisms we use to deal with our problems. … They eat together, creating a spaghetti-like mess with fear, negative thoughts, and pain. The program of Overthrowing anxiety affects very gently the underlying causes of anxiety disorders. And once it starts to do its job, the causes of anxiety – whatever they are for your type of anxiety – begin to subside.
