Don't panic: you can overcome anxiety without drugs.
By Dr Sallee McLaren.

Panic attacks, phobias, extreme shyness, and general anxiety disrupt the lives of an estimated 15 per cent of the population. Typically, these kinds of problems are diagnosed, often without evidence, as being caused by a biochemical imbalance that requires rebalancing through medication. The result, very often, is an endless psychiatric revolving-door syndrome.

With the publication of Don't Panic, readers now have a practical alternative. This breakthrough book offers proven ways for afflicted readers to change their lives for the better - permanently and without drugs.

Here's how:

Dr McLaren has observed that emotional distress in adults, such as anxiety and depression, often arises from learned responses that were triggered by negative childhood backgrounds. But what was true or helpful in childhood become false assumptions and poor coping-strategies in adulthood-leading individuals into self-reinforcing cycles of emotional crisis. And yet, Dr McLaren has discovered, the symptoms disappear permanently if these strategies are changed and the assumptions overturned.

Dr. McLaren's path finding book, rich with specific examples and case studies, offers readers real-life ways to escape from self-sabotaging patterns of behaviour. Don't Panic is an invaluable resource: a clearly expressed, straightforward guide that works, written by an experienced mental-health professional.
