What would you think if I told you that your anxiety wasn’t the true problem, but the true problem you have is the way you hold onto, and battle with your social anxiety disorder. When we put great effort into trying to ‘push away’ our issues related to fear, that is the very moment it becomes chronic. When it comes to social anxiety many people tend to turn to one or more of the 4 ‘solutions’ that we may be told will help our suffering, these solutions are:
1) Cognitive Behavioral Therapy: In my personal experience I still believe CBT is the fastest way to see results when it comes to overcoming social anxiety. This is because of 2 reasons, #1) Because it gets to the root of the problem which is that our thoughts create our feelings and ultimately the way we behave, #2) It makes you do homework when you’re not in delicate situations and this creates better understanding and confidence when faced with an uneasy situation.
2) Herbs, Vitamins and Other Natural Treatments: With the endless amount of things to take for your social anxiety out there to accommodate your road to recovery, in my experience nothing beats a good vitamin B complex to help your nervous system fight the symptoms of anxiety experienced due to prolonged sensitized nerves.
