You Don’t Have to Feel This Way

“You are not alone, and you’re not saddled with anxiety—or the medications to treat it—forever. I’m going to outline a clear plan and give you clear steps to help you face your anxiety from every angle, in synergy, to truly get to the calm and healing you need and deserve. These tools work.” –from the introduction

Naturopathic doctor and licensed acupuncturist Peter Bongiorno has been researching natural approaches to anxiety for over 20 years and treating patients for a dozen. (His interest was professional, of course, but also partly personal; he had his own history with debilitating anxiety.) Here he offers his holistic approach to healing anxiety and avoiding relapse, with a toolkit that includes foods and plant-based medicines, plus anxiety-reducing yoga poses, massage techniques, and acupressure points you can try on your own for lasting relief.

Bongiorno also tackles how to safely wean from anti-anxiety medication and how to supplement conventional medications with herbs and other remedies to increase their efficacy and reduce side effects.

If you are one of the 40 million Americans with panic attacks, phobias, or other anxiety-related issues limiting your life, or are in close relationship with someone who is, this book will be a lifeline.

Dr. Peter Bongiorno is a naturopath and acupuncturist with offices in NYC and Long Island. He is licensed as an acupuncturist in the State of New York and as a naturopathic doctor in the State of Washington. He is an adjunct faculty member at NYU, where he teaches classes on holistic healing. He also writes for PsychologyToday,, and (Photo credit:
