This Ancient Breathing Technique Will Provide Instant Drug-Free Anxiety Relief

The Anxiety Disorders Association of America reports that anxiety is now the most commonly diagnosed mental illness in the United States.

Less than 25% of sufferers will actually receive any kind of treatment for the affliction. The disorder can be broken down into generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, panic disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder.

Aside from medication, there are some ways we can help relieve anxiety. One of the ways is breathing.
