Anxiety is a condition commonly encountered in clinical practice. In fact anxiety disorders affect 40 million American adults, or 18% of the population in a given year. This chapter discusses how to integrate nutritional strategies, botanical alternatives, lifestyle interventions, and other traditional health interventions such as acupuncture and mind–body techniques to effectively treat this condition. Detailed information pertinent to optimizing the use of medications for mood disorder treatment is also covered. Lastly, the clinical evidence for yoga, massage, and other relaxation techniques for reducing anxiety are addressed. Practitioners can use this information in clinical practice as they recommend these techniques to reinforce novel patient-empowering suggestions in using an integrative strategy to combat anxiety.
