Thoughts on Anxiety

Anxiety is the result of a disparity between or disruption to the normal rhythmic balance between respiration and heartbeat, whether triggered psychologically or mechanically. The imbalance causes alterations in blood gasses which cause instability to cerebral blood vessel tone via vasoconstriction or dilation. It may be possible to relieve anxiety not by breathing slowly and deeply as is often thought, but by altering respiration to match heart rate.
