Anxiety and Panic Attacks, Getting to the Underlying Mechanisms

Today we are discussing Anxiety and Panic Attacks.  Disorders of the anxiety spectrum are pervasive in our society, such that upwards of 30% of the population will suffer with one of these at any given time.  Anxiety disorders can range from phobias, to obsessive compulsive disorder, to post traumatic stress disorder.  In today’s broadcast we will dissect these issues as well as discussing the underlying neurological causes.
