Adam Wolford's insight:

On line therapy, now how do we know that it is working ? Looking at other articles and readings from Myers(2014) most of the treatment and Therapy is dealt with in person , this is the first time that i have ever heard of Online help , if you look at peoples work you can see that they have taken online surveys from trusting sources (Herr, Williams, Benjamin, McDuffie 2014) Another question is if this is actually trust worthy? There are no other sources that say online therapy is a productive or effective way.There is a wide range of people that this could effect and from what seemed to be more of an add than an article it applies to everyone and he does not seem to have a target clientele group.

Can the bacteria in your gut help regulate mood and anxiety?

Can the bacteria in your gut help regulate mood and anxiety? | Anxiety disorder | Scoop.it
Research into the gut brain connection nascent but promising

Via Collection of First, Mark E. Deschaine, PhD
Adam Wolford's insight:

Let us start off by stating a couple facts. Anxiety disorder is a feeling and a cognitive disorder, meaning that it takes place in your brain, It is also when the brains danger detection system becomes hyperactive. (Myers 2014) This mean that anxiety had to do with your brain and so  bacteria in your gut would have no effect on it. If we are looking for  something to help regulate people anxiety then we have already found one of the answers, and that is medication. With the medication it has been proven to be effective and work on people.(Grohol, 2005)   When you look at the article it mentions mice, and remembering that mice are similar to humans they are not humans actually so there could still be flaw in their results. When you are looking at the credibility of this source i would say that it is pretty good, it made it to a national news paper, and there are a lot of study being talked about that , but there are not sources for this information which makes this a much less credible source. They  do not see to be catering to any specific type of person, but id there was one i would say it is most likely people that read the Washington Times which means that there are a lot more people out there that are not reading this than there that are. There also seems to be no specific diversity that this is applied towards, just the readers of  the Washington Times.

Is Anxiety Really a Gift?
Brain Blogger (blog)
Anxiety is most known as a “thinking” disorder which can be evidenced through symptoms such as chronic worrying.
Adam Wolford's insight:

Is it a gift dealing with anxiety attacks, always being worried, easily fatigued, always being on the edge, or muscle tension (Grohol, 2005)

There are so many people / ideas out there that have such different opinions on these issues and this is a great example of where you have to do your research. it says that the experiences of the symptoms are the gifts because it is made of energy which can lead to research. on way that leads to better research is actually running tests and looking at ways to help fix peoples anxiety. One of the best things for it is medications they help deal with the bodily symptoms. (Grohol, 2005) From reading the summary of this book  it seems like their targets area upper middle class white people, the reason why i get this feeling is because when you are reading it refers to one doctor and the way it reads seems to appeal to the upper middle  white women, now that is just a personal  thought and to make it appeal to more people would be much better.

Editorial: Holiday Can Trigger Anxiety, Depression - Times Record

Editorial: Holiday Can Trigger Anxiety, Depression - Times Record | Anxiety disorder | Scoop.it
It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Isn’t it?
Adam Wolford's insight:

Although there is a lot of repetitive music and it might be a stressful time, There are more things that cause anxiety than just the holidays. So nay things can also cause anxiety like being startled, fears, and just being worried about things constantly. (Grohol, 2005)  Another thing to remember is that we do not always know what causes anxiety (Myers 2014) not everyone knows why or what causes their anxiety and that just the way it is, this might just be a case where it is by coincidence it happened during this time of the year. This information is fairly good, it just gives people another hope or reason to why they might be having anxiety during this time of the year. but other wise there are really no sources that they used that is why its credibility goes down a bit. This article was mainly for people that can access the internet to start off with which means it might not get to the lower class. it also looks at mainly white people, because it is biased out of Oklahoma and Arkansas, and finally they talk about Christmas so it looks like they are making this towards people that are white middle to upper class and celibate Christmas, which leaves a lot of people out of this category.

Activating cannabinoid brain receptors could replace marijuana for anxiety treatment

Activating cannabinoid brain receptors could replace marijuana for anxiety treatment | Anxiety disorder | Scoop.it
Researchers say they have found a way to activate cannabinoid receptors in the brains of mice and reduce depressive- and anxiety-like behaviors, without the use of marijuana.

Via ReactNow
Adam Wolford's insight:

This site Does have good information but there are a couple key things first of all it says that people with anxiety have reduced levels of endocannabinoids and that Marijuana helps the levels, but there is one problem it is illegal. The only other medication that can help these levels is to take medication that is given to you by a doctor.(Grohol, 2005)  The other flaw that they have is that they do these tests on mice and not on humans, that is one thing that they need to fix, even though mice share a very similar genetic structure they are not the same. to get better tests results you need to look at tests or experiments that have been done on humans to see what their results are like, (Herr, Williams, Benjamin, McDuffie 2014) who test which things can determine if you have these symptoms or not. I think that this article might be skewed towards people who smoke pot  because your average person do not go around looking for marijuana articles, your average person does not go looking for these types of articles. I can not see where there is certain sex that this article applies towards more than the other.

Status Anxiety

Status anxiety is that fear we might get when, at a party, someone asks us what we do for a living. SUBSCRIBE to our channel for new films every week: http://tinyurl.com/o28mut7 Brought to...
Adam Wolford's insight:

When you think about anxiety most ideas revolve around stress and the problems that come with it, but in this clip it talks about how most anxiety comes from other people looking at us and judging us biased on a tiny part of us our professional identities and from that come to a verdict on how valuable  we are as humans. This is only one way  that people can get an anxiety disorder, there are so many other ways you could be teased, worried about things or for random reasons you could have an anxiety attack.( Myers 2014) One think that i really noticed about this video it is that there are only white characters in it and well that is really bad because it shows and make it as if this video only applies to white people which is not good at all. as this continues on it becomes less and less about anxiety and more about social classes and meritocracy in the modern day, i think that this makes this a much less credible source.  Towards the end they mention ways to help and they say ignore it and know the hard working should get the better things, make your own definition of success, and finally don't let your outer achievements define who you are. Those are great ways but there are two things that really help with anxiety at a personal level and they are  the GAD-7 which is a scale to help determine your anxiety, and the Patient health questionnaire for panic disorder.  (Herr, Williams, Benjamin, McDuffie 2014)
