Very good remedy

Today, after suffering with anxiety and insomnia for a nearly a year and exhausting every natural remedy, I could think of, I finally decided to go to a Dr. for help. Instead of writing me a prescription, he told me to drink more teas and think happy thoughts. I had to pay out of pocket for this. FML

as it has been explained to me by the professionals I work for... anxiety isn't real, just need to be alright with the thing you THINK bug you... and pray more. but for reals, sorry to hear. could be grounds for a lawsuit if it gets any worse for you.

That’s ridiculous. If your anxiety is moderate to severe, they should have considered psychotherapy and or initiating medication. Does this idiot think it will magically go away?

Caffeine could increase anxiety but that’s not a reason to drink more tea or think happy thoughts.

Agreed but it sounds like the condition is chronic and needs to be addressed. Decreasing caffeine would help, but if it’s severe, the patient probably needs medication. Commitment depression isn’t uncommon.

Also sleep study might be important if the patient has multiple comorbidities. Insomnia and anxiety both can be exacerbated by Sleep apnea (OSA)

I know a few people who are on anxiety meds. They say doctors often have to recommend non-medical methods at the first meeting and won't write a prescription until later meetings when they're sure you've tried the other ways long enough.
