I will be eternally grateful to you for how you healed by back!

I started training with Coach Berry when I was 61 years old.  For four months, I had suffered a great deal of back pain and knew I need to do something different. When I began with Coach, he asked me how I was feeling.  After a lifetime of training with a number of different trainers I could only say I didn't feel great.  My back pain caused me to see chiropractors and accupuncturists, but I found no relief.  After one deep tissue massage, Coach immediately had me feeling better.  After two months of training Coach had me back to 100%.  He knows what he is doing when it comes to training and injuries.  He trains people to perform exercises correctly to avoid injuries.  I have worked with many different trainers all over the San Diego County and Coach Berry is the best, most effective trainer I have meet.  I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to improve their health and fitness levels.

Crippled by Anxiety

What happens when normal anxiety turns into a mental illness?

Are you a human being? Then you have experienced some degree of anxiety in your life. After all, it’s a normal emotion in response to fear or stress.

Whether you’re starting a new job, having marital trouble, or preparing for a test, nervousness, apprehension, and stress are completely normal. In fact, they can actually be beneficial for you to perform your best.

But what if these feelings of worry, fear, and anxiety seem to run your life?

What if you can’t seem to escape or control the constant, overwhelming sense of dread you suffer, and any hope of leading a normal life is gone. If this describes your situation for six months or longer, you may have an anxiety disorder.
A recognized mental illness, anxiety disorders come in all shapes and sizes. Learn about the many different faces of anxiety disorders and know you’re not alone if one of them describes you. There’s help and hope available to overcome anxiety.

What’s Your Type?

Anxiety disorders come in a variety of forms. The recognized types of this mental illness include panic disorder (panic attacks that strike suddenly), obsessive-compulsive disorder or OCD (fears that lead to compulsive, unusual behaviors), post-traumatic stress disorder or PTSD (recurrent frightening thoughts following a traumatic event), phobias (intense fear of a situation or object), social phobias (overwhelming fear of judgment by others or humiliation in front of others), and generalized anxiety disorder (constant, unrealistic fear and worry).

Is This You?

Each of the six disorders listed above has different symptoms, but all anxiety disorders have one thing in common: extreme, unwarranted fear and worry.

Other common symptoms include feelings of panic, obsessive thoughts, nightmares, ritualistic behaviors, recurrent flashbacks of trauma, insomnia, heart palpitations, clammy feet or hands, restlessness, shortness of breath, dry mouth, nausea, tension, nausea, or dizziness.

Symptoms may begin as early as age 6, but most often present themselves in early adulthood. And anxiety disorders are much more common in women than men.

What Brings It On?

If you live with an anxiety disorder, you probably long to know what is at its root. However, scientists are still trying to determine the cause of anxiety disorders. If you’re one of the millions of individuals who suffer from an anxiety disorder, don’t blame yourself or your past.

Most likely, the cause of your and any anxiety disorder is a combination of changes in brain structure, chemical imbalances, genetics, environmental factors, diet, and long-lasting stress. As research continues on how the brain creates and reacts to anxiety and fear, new medications and treatments will become available.

How Is It Managed?

If the symptoms listed above describe you, seek treatment. Your doctor may refer you to a psychiatrist or psychologist, healthcare professionals with the expertise to diagnose and treat mental disorders.

Your treatment will depend on what type of anxiety disorder you have, but will likely include one or more of the following: medication, psychotherapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, lifestyle changes, dietary adjustments, self-help support group, or relaxation techniques.

Medications include anxiety-reducing drugs, beta-blockers, and anti-depressants. They will not cure an anxiety disorder, but will help keep it under control while the sufferer receives therapy.

Psychotherapy is counseling that is performed by a mental health professional, who can help talk through the origins of anxiety and implement effective strategies for dealing with the specific disorder.

Cognitive-behavioral therapy is also led by a professional who seeks to help sufferers recognize their disorder for what it is and then change the thoughts and behaviors that lead to their anxious feelings.
Additionally, symptoms of anxiety disorders can be lessened with

lifestyle modifications. Good first steps include regular exercise and avoiding caffeine, certain herbal remedies, certain cold medications, and illicit drugs.
