What causes an anxiety disorder to develop, and how can I control it without the use of prescription drugs?

When you get anxious, or panic, the body releases adrenalin.The adrenalin causes your body to overact, i.e. the heart beat increases, you breath quicker etc , that in turn makes you panic more and then your body releases more adrenalin for fight or flight (which it is meant to do ) and then this makes you even more upset and you panic even more. One technique is to  breathe into a paper bag (not plastic), and inhale your own carbon dioxide. This slows down the increase in breathing rate and stops the cycle of panic from getting worse.
