GAD (Generalized Anxiety Disorder) is a psychological condition that is characterized by the exaggerated worry about everyday life events such as occupation, family life, health, business, money etc. The worries are often unrealistic, making the life of a GAD sufferer a constant state of anxiety and fear. If left untreated, GAD may interfere with daily functioning, family life, professional life, social activities and relationships.
The typical symptoms of generalized anxiety disorder include an unrealistic view of problems, excessive tension, irritability, mood swings, restlessness, extreme fatigue, rapid heartbeats, headache, sweating, difficulty concentrating, frequent urination, constipation, trembling, dryness of mouth, muscle tension, muscle aches, nausea, indigestion and insomnia.
There are numerous factors that may lead to GAD. Research shows that family history plays a vital role in increasing the likelihood that an individual will develop generalized anxiety disorder. Certain unpleasant events such as divorce, the death of a loved one, unemployment, demotion, loss in a business and abuse may also lead to GAD. Abnormal levels of chemical messengers (neurotransmitters) in the brain can also lead to anxiety.
Treatment for generalized anxiety disorder includes a combination of medication therapy and cognitive-behavioural therapy.
GAD and other related psychological disorders can be avoided by consuming healthy, balanced diets, spending time with family members and friends, having an interesting hobby, participating in the social activities and consuming a dietary supplement that provides mood uplift and helps during times of stress.
