In my opinion, the cure of anxiety is facing whatever it is that is causing you your anxiety. Meditation can help, coming onto 7-cups is another great way to help battle it, by getting support!

The cure is not looking for a cure for it, try not to focus all your energy by thinking about it. Sometimes you just need to ignore it.

There isn't a cure, but there are ways to make it better. I personally am suffering from anxiety and therapy has helped me so much.

Anxiety is like depression in that someone can have a "bout" of it, and then it may never reoccur. Like depression though, someone may also begin experiencing anxiety and have to learn to cope with it for the rest of his or her life. Coping skills, medication, therapy, and a support system can combine to form a very solid way to combat anxiety when it does occur meaning that it can have little to no affect on ones life with those things in place.

There is no cure. And it can be managed effectively with the right treatment. However, everyone is different so different combinations of therapy adn medication/different therapy will help others more than some. It's about finding what works best for the individual

There's no official "cure," but it can be treated. A combination of medication and therapy can be effective for treating the biological and mental causes of anxiety. You can learn techniques to better deal with your anxiety or how to change your thoughts so you do not get as anxious.

There may not be cure for anxiety (YET), but there are some ways to control it. Meditation can help a lot, also exercising and just positive thinking can help you a lot (knowing from my personal experience). Surround yourself with positive people and be happy as much as possible. Enjoy little things, read your favorite book, take a walk, play with your pet, write down your feelings... hope I helped a little. :)

Yes. The best cure is taking control of your life, realizing this is only temporary, and seeking help for your problems.

Anxiety can most definitely be managed by using Cognitive Behavioral methods. A change in perspective is very powerful!

Yes. There's different ways of handling anxiety, whether it be medicine, or proffesional help. If you feel like it's affecting your life, you should probably see help.

Of course, and it's all about looking at the facts of your life and realizing your fears and irrational emotions are just that. They come and go like anything else, so when you feel those feelings, occupy your time with something else.

I don't know if there is a cure for anxiety but i do know that we can learn how to live whith anxiety. And it depends on our willpower, if we really want to overcome anxiety, we can do it. Bur i don't think that we are cured, because anxiety it's always there.

Not always, sometimes people find new strategies to overcome their anxiety but it depends on the individual as to whether it can be cured...

Awareness help a lot. There really is no "cure", but you can help yourself by being aware of your emotions, accepting them, and learning how to take a step back and breathe.

Depending on the severity, there may or may not be cure. Overcoming and coping with it, though, is very beneficial on whether or not it consumes someone. Learning how badly it affects one's self, is a start. By detecting what bothers them, how badly, and then moving on to ways to combat the negative emotions. Which can be found through support of others, resources or even getting help/counseling.

I don't think that there is a cure to never feel anxious again. There are a few ways to treat anxiety, though. One way is medication and there are multiple ways to make it weaker. You can exercise, practice meditation, get enough sleep, eat healthily. A very big help is if you manage to accept the uncertainty.

As cliche as it sounds, curing anxiety is all about finding time to yourself and doing things that make you happy. Go for a walk, do breathing exercises, play with an animal, find a chat room online, stretch your muscles to relieve tension, etc. In the moment it seems absolutely impossible, but once you get yourself out of that funk and your mind out of the anxiety zone, you will feel better. It might be a temporary cure, but it helps. Long term is harder. You need to be able feel your anxiety coming and be able to stop it before it gets too bad.

There is not an exact cure for anxiety, but at times medications are prescribed to people to help them if it becomes a problem in their lives.

unfortunately there is no cure for anxiety as it is a mental health problem. but a lot of the time doctors can prescribe something to help keep you calm and relaxed. Our minds like to take over when we are anxious and another few ways of helping you with that is, one to distract yourself with anything else, such as colouring, painting, exercise, things you enjoy. two is to try medidation, it helps you to learn how to control your mind from intrusive thoughts. and three is to just genuinely talk to someone who you trust and are comfortable with about what is worrying you.

There is no cure but there are ways to deal with anxiety just as there are with any mental or physical health issue. Coping skills are so important, If someone needs help the 7cups site has so much help and if you need more help there are therapist and also meds if the doctor feels you need them. Anxiety can be managed and you can feel so much better with work and time and knowing that this will get better and you can live life to the fullest . You may also have the Positive Anxiety like being really excited about doing fun things so not all anxiety is bad.
