How can I cure generalized anxiety disorder?


Updated May 31, 2007

Question: How can I cure generalized anxiety disorder?
Answer: Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) can not necessarily be “cured,” since it is not considered a “disease.” Instead, GAD is thought of as a collection of symptoms that represents a psychological tendency to worry and experience anxiety that can be managed, contained, and changed. Even with treatment, most people with GAD must work to maintain their new sense of peace and understanding of themselves. Read more about treatments for GAD here.
