Anxiety as we know is a state of one's mind. If all the right things are done like keeping yourself from things that are causative agents of anxiety, I don't think there would be need for one seeking medical support to tackle anxiety problems.
I really feel a lot of us are doing pretty too much to beat our day to day struggles. We should learn to at least relax sometimes, take our minds of the crisis that at times created by the society. The alleviation of anxiety can be done via conscious efforts but if we are already be bedevilled by it, I guess our resort is getting medical help before it would spiral out of control.
Drugs can be of great help. You can make use of antidepressants which are very effective for anxiety treatment. Benzodiazepines can also be used as well as paraxatine. There are many drugs for anxiety treatment but getting a suitable one for sufferer would go a long way in the treatment.
