Understanding the Root of Anxiety

Women with anxiety disorders often find it challenging to calm down, causing feelings of fear to escalate. These individuals often have elevated levels of cortisol, a stress hormone that regulates the body’s fight-or-flight response. Ideally, cortisol levels should return to normal after the perceived threat passes. But in people with anxiety disorders, the body is perpetually in fight-or-flight mode, with constant cortisol surges that can worsen anxiety and lead to other severe health conditions like digestive disorders, immunodeficiency, cardiovascular disease, addiction, and diabetes.
