From a biological point of view, the anxiety response is a physiological reaction that occurs in response to a perceived threat. This reaction can become oversensitized, resulting in an inappropriate release of hormones in response to relatively minor threats. To address this, we recommend Nutritional Therapy to reduce the overproduction of cortisol in the system and rebalance the system. More here

We recommend using CBT to help with social anxiety. CBT can be highly effective and uses practical tools and strategies to teach you how to identify and change perceptions.
