Start with breathing: Start with learning proper breathing techniques- slow deep breaths from your abdomen- there are whole books on how to breathe properly! see a doc to eval. Dizziness. It may be due to adrenal fatigue- see http://www.Adrenalfatigue.Org/ why can't you take ad's? Natural alternatives like 5-htp and st. John's wort are as effective. Homeopathy can really help & there are many fine homeopaths in gb.

Get another opinion: You don't say why you can't take meds. I agree that therapy is most important for treatment of anxiety but many need meds to reduce sx so they can do healthy behaviors.

How about Buspirone. Or OTC l-theanine, passionflower, kava, chamomile tea, etc. Binaural beats apps are marvelous as well as acupuncture.
