If you're talking about his breathing methods, I don't see how that would hurt.  High anxiety can sometimes be attributed to O2 or CO2 levels being off-kilter.  Good breathing techniques are always a good thing!

I would just caution you to be wary of any program that says it can "cure" anxiety, and/or people can kill their anxiety without pills.  Anxiety can't be cured, and for some people, medication can be a very effective tool.

Good luck!
