Anxiety disorders in patients with chronic diseases can affect the healing process of the disease. Many cases of anxiety disorders in patients can lead to comorbidity of physical-mental illness. Acupoint stimulation therapy and Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) is a combination of physical and psychological treatment methods to improve the recovery of mental physical comorbidity by improving the value of Interleukin 6 (IL-6). The purpose of the study was to see the effect of stimulation of acupoint ST-36 and CBT in reducing IL-6 levels in anxiety disorders. The research method used was an experiment with a control group and using pre and post test, the number of samples used was 20 people divided into two groups, control and treatment groups.
