I would suggest trying this approach for a couple weeks and keep a close monitor of your symptoms to decipher if your symptoms have decreased. If at this point you feel no relief from the GAD I would suggest that you consider seeing a therapist that is skilled and experienced on the above theoretic approach. A therapist can be found by requesting a referral from your health insurance provider.
