Anxiety can be a disease

>That anxiety is not a disease to treat.

Again, I disagree. We don't know enough to say.

You can create high anxiety and low anxiety mice simply by altering (at the genetic level) certain gaba-a receptor subtypes.

My anxiety could be the result of an infection, or it could be genetic (i.e. different expression of a gaba receptor, ion channel, neurotransmitter system, hormone system, CCK, substance P, NMDA).

We don't know.

Keep in mind, many infections (i.e streptococcal causes its psychiatric effects through interaction with neurotransmitter systems - NMDA in this case). So, the infection / immune theory, is a complementary theory (IMHO) not necessary an exclusive one.

We're only barely scratching the surface in terms of our understanding of these things.
