I applaud your effort to help him out.
& I agree with Coper ie.,
- keep the meeting to 1 new member at a time.
- Touching him at the time of a new meeting will help him relax a bit.
- People with SA need lots of Nurture & Comfort.
while these are short term things.. he needs to explore the problem at a deeper level. some questions to help
- what other symptoms does he have.. document everything
- look for answers not just in western meds.. explore Ayurveda, TCM etc
the answers are already there.
For ex, in Ayurveda, SA/anxiety happens when there is too much build up of Vata (Wind). To bring this down, he needs to eat more heavy foods. ex: oil is heavy. Calms the system. Oil massage everyday in the morning will bring his anxiety down etc.
