Anxiety is part of our internal alarm system that when functioning in a healthy way primes our entire system to perform at our optimum. We get the right amount of adrenalin to be alert and ready to deal with what we are about to face. Afterwards anxiety will recede and we relax. This process is normal and part of human life.

Anxiety can be experienced also in more severe forms which then can cause lasting impacts and disrupt life. It may be as a response to a traumatic event or through a habit of worrying that starts very mild and then gets out of control. Anxiety then can lead to avoiding the feared situations, thus disrupting social and work-life and cause health problems like insomnia and IBS
