Anxiety is a psychological and physiological state characterized by emotional, cognitive, and behavioral components. Anxiety is considered to be a normal reaction to stress. It may help a person to deal with a difficult situation by prompting one to cope with it.

When anxiety becomes excessive, it may fall under the classification of anxiety and eating disorders. The intensity and reasoning behind anxiety determines whether it is considered a normal or abnormal reaction.

Anxiety disorders are classified into two groups: continuous symptoms and episodic symptoms. Current psychiatric diagnostic criteria recognize a wide variety of anxiety disorders including generalized anxiety, phobic, and panic disorders. Recent surveys have found that as many as 18% of Americans may be affected by one or more of them.

How the CEDRIC Method Helps with Anxiety: Client Feedback

Compulsive overeating was taking over my life until I found The Centre. I finally feel as if I can be in the same room as a box of cookies and not obsess about them.

I have had years of receiving various forms of bodywork, acupuncture, Reiki, cranial sacral therapy, massage therapy. But never have I experienced such a shift of deep release and energy connection through my body than with my Zero Balancing treatments with Karen Stein. Every session left me more grounded and peaceful with myself and the world.

Thank you for providing a wealth of information through this website. During slow times at work, I’m able to visit and absorb pieces of inspiration.

I live in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, and began therapy to work on my compulsive eating/dieting/exercising. I thank God everyday I’ve had the courage to seek help.

Although it’s not always easy, I know that if I’ve come this far, I can hang on to the faith that I can overcome this and inspire others. I can ask more, forgive more and love more.

The best is when I try to open others up to my process of liberation — Some get it, and some don’t. But, I can keep loving myself, and hopefully, others can follow my example.

Please keep up the good work — I can feel this is becoming a life passion — to rid women and men of diet mentality. To break free. To start living and loving.

Thank you so much for your support thus far. The self-exploration and the resulting insight is both liberating and baffling. To realize I’ve reached 52 years and developed this overwhelming “Diet Mentality” mainly just as an avoidance mechanism!

I intend to persevere-I’m up for the personal challenge. One day soon I will be able to overcome my compulsive eating and face my scariest feelings effectively. I look forward to a fuller, happier lifestyle in my retirement years.
