Generalised anxiety disorder is a serotonin imbalance and a mental health disorder ….. this is the medical story for anxiety. A story told by many Doctors, globally.
A story told by GP Dr Rosemary Leonard in Decembers issue of Women and Home, in response to a readers request for help with anxiety.
Could there be a different narrative?
There is nothing, anywhere to suggest the serotonin theory of anxiety is true. Let alone testing to prove this. There is only a journal full of disorders – the DSM, a journal used by psychiatry who have no way to prove the disorders they claim to be true.
During a recent workshop, I suggested that those who have learned theories from books don’t necessarily have the whole picture. This triggered someone massively – how could i question authority? a professional?
My advice to you is this – connect to yourself and trust your own intuition. If there is a better story, a more empowering story that sets you free from these limiting ideas, choose that.
At the very least educate yourself and make an informed decision, rather than blindly following this limiting story on anxiety.
