Anxiety Q & A

What are the types of anxiety?

Anxiety can be normal and useful, like just before an evaluation at work. Anxiety disorders, however, disrupt your life, prevent you from functioning normally, and cause uncontrollable responses to stress. 

Some of the types of anxiety disorders are:

  • Generalized anxiety disorder
  • Social anxiety
  • Specific phobias
  • Panic disorder (panic attacks)
  • Agoraphobia (fear of public places)

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) features anxiety but isn’t an anxiety disorder. 


Can you manage anxiety without treatment?

Ordinary cases of anxiety might be manageable with relaxation exercises and other behavioral tactics. Anxiety disorders are far from ordinary, however. They involve prolonged anxiety and damage your brain. 

Studies have proven that prolonged anxiety causes structural degeneration and malfunctioning of the hippocampus and prefrontal cortex in the brain. These changes show up clearly on brain scans. 

In fact, the damage that anxiety causes may explain why conditions like depression often occur alongside anxiety disorders, as well as autism and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Treatment can help with overcoming symptoms, reduce prolonged risk, and repair the brain.


What is MeRT for anxiety?

Magnetic e-Resonance Therapy (MeRT) is a leading-edge, non-pharmaceutical treatment for anxiety disorders and other conditions that involve brain function problems. 

This treatment features transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) technology, which uses a magnet to send pulses into the brain. It’s drug-free and noninvasive: A magnetic coil is positioned lightly against your scalp to deliver the treatment. Most people say it’s painless.

The magnetic pulses stimulate the part of your brain that’s damaged by anxiety and promotes its restoration. Essentially, it helps you repair your brain on your own, and this in turn relieves anxiety symptoms. 

MeRT is a highly personalized version of TMS. It involves detailed brain scans and brain mapping to show the magnetic pulses for your brain. 

MeRT can quickly restore your brain with remarkable efficiency. A follow-up brain scan after a week shows the improvements in your brain and helps to perfect treatment. Most patients have 10 sessions to get maximum results, but every person (and every brain) is unique.

The practice also offers Masgutova Neurosensorimotor Reflex Integration (MNRI®) and other noninvasive therapies.
