Anxiety Treatment

How Casa Recovery Treats Anxiety

Anxiety takes many different forms and can be characterized by the type of worry and what you are worrying for.

Some of these different forms include panic disorder, phobias, generalized anxiety disorder, and social anxiety disorder, to name a few. While there are multiple faces to anxiety, most of these disorders share the same general symptoms, including panic, fear, inability to stay still or calm, insomnia, and more. There also can be very pronounced physical symptoms, including nausea, tense muscles, dizziness, and more. There is no pinned-down all-encompassing cause of anxiety, as it wholly depends on the sufferer. However, there have been some studies that show that the disorder might run in the family or could be linked to faulty wiring in the brain. Anxiety doesn’t have to be the end-all-be-all of your life. Recovery is possible.


We all experience anxiety to some degree during our daily lives. People feel anxious before an exam, a job interview or making an important decision and that is completely normal. However, some people struggle to shrug off anxiety to the extent that they become unable to function in their daily activities. Very often the symptoms of an anxiety disorder can interfere with performance at work or school and also disrupt close personal relationships.

Different Types of Anxiety Disorders

There are different types of anxiety disorders that are broadly categorized into three groups: generalized anxiety, panic and phobia-related disorders. Here we take a closer look at each category:


Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD): People who have GAD experience extreme anxiety for most days over a period of at least six months. The kinds of things triggering the condition include issues surrounding personal health, social life, career and general life circumstances. The symptoms of GAD include: restlessness, irritability, fatigue, lack of focus, muscle tension, uncontrollable feelings of worry, insomnia.


Panic Disorder: Panic disorder is characterized by attacks that can be so severe the person experiences chest pains, shortness of breath, trembling and muscle tension. There is usually a trigger for a panic attack which can be related to a previous traumatic experience or situation.


Phobia-related disorders: When someone has a phobia, they have an irrational fear of something which can be any object or situation. Individuals with a phobia-related disorder will take any necessary steps to avoid the situation or object they fear. If they encounter the object or find themselves in the trigger situation, someone with a phobia-related disorder is likely to react in an extreme way very quickly.

How Holistic Treatments Work to Heal Anxiety

More than a third of Americans regularly engage in one type of holistic practice in their daily lives including yoga and meditation. The holistic approach to mental health treatment places emphasis on finding natural ways of coping with anxiety so that symptoms can be managed successfully over the long term.


Holistic practices refer to the treatment of the individual as a whole in terms of their mental, emotional and physical symptoms. This differs from conventional medicine which treats the symptoms rather than the cause. The theory behind holistic therapies is that by treating the individual’s overall wellbeing, they have a greater chance of finding a way of overcoming the anxiety that is sustainable for many years after treatment.


Holistic therapies are particularly useful because they can easily be incorporated into a person’s daily routine. Taking time out for meditation or physical exercise are both ‘holistic’ ways of clearing the mind and refreshing the body. This can be invaluable for a person with anxiety who has a severe reaction to stress as they can learn to reduce and even eliminate their negative responses altogether.
