The more diligently we exercise, the better it is for chronic anxiety disorders. In this regard, sport is superior to drugs or psychotherapy.
Intense physical activity is much better at relieving chronic anxiety disorders than medications or psychotherapy. Swedish scientists from the University of Gothenburg looked at how the symptoms of anxiety disorders changed over 12 weeks when volunteers went through moderate or intense cardio and strength training.
Both types of exercise were quite effective in relieving the symptoms of anxiety disorders, even if they were chronic. This suggests that simpler means are suitable for dealing with these disorders than psychotherapy and even medications, which are often not only expensive in cost, but also ineffective for a number of patients.
In addition, it has recently been established that botox injections can be another means of combating anxiety disorders. They reduce the severity of these disorders by a maximum of 72%, as scientists from California have found, and regardless of the injection site. It is not yet very clear how Botox leads to such results, although researchers suggest that this drug is transferred to the regions of the central nervous system involved in the processes of regulating mood and emotions.
