Anxiety is a broad term that can either refer to the natural stress response, which everyone experiences from time to time, or anxiety disorders, that cause ongoing and often irrational fears. Anxiety disorders can be so severe that they influence every choice you make and have significant control over your life.
It might be difficult to tell at first whether your feelings are warranted anxiety or if you have an anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorders tend to cause anxiety that is disproportionate to the circumstances as well as physical symptoms like high blood pressure, heart palpitations, and bowel issues.
Pacific KLN Infusions offers infusions that help reduce anxiety symptoms in those who have tried other treatments but haven’t experienced a decline in symptoms. The providers can sit down with you and talk about the potential benefits. After reviewing your medical and psychiatric history, they tell you if you’re a good candidate for infusions for anxiety.
