Neurotransmitter or hormone problems are the most common cause. There are about 100 different neurotransmitters. Serotonin and GABA are the neurotransmitters and progesterone is the hormone usually involved . Medications can be extraordinarily helpful for anxiety. Newer studies however indicate that many people do not respond to them or have significant side effects such as weight gain, sexual dysfunction, worsening of mood, and/or stomach ulcers. The latter is a complication that was recognized only in 2013. I have no aversion to using medications but most people that come to see me have tried them and have had one or more of the above problems. Feeding the body the nutrients that nerve endings require to make more neurotransmitters or hormone replacement therapy can be life changing. I found that this is an extraordinarily effective way to deal with these complicated chronic problems.
