I think meditation is a great way to reduce or prevent anxiety. There is a lot of evidence that regular meditation helps keep the mind in a more relaxed state, so that as you go through the day, you're not as likely to have as much anxiety.

I'd be cautious about recommending for people to talk to a doctor about anxiety. There is very little evidence that any sort of medication can help anxiety in more than just the short-term, and there is a lot of evidence that the most commonly prescribed anti-anxiety meds can do considerable harm in the long-term: most quickly develop a tolerance and can be quite addictive. Unfortunately, many medical doctors in the U.S. are too quick to prescribe drugs. That's not to say all doctors can't help though--some anxiety can be connected to other physical conditions, and there are certainly many doctors out there who take a more holistic approach to health.

I notice you say at the end that anxiety always has an external cause. I'm not sure I agree with this--I think there's a degree to which anxiety can be generated by the mind, by thoughts. This idea is the basis of cognitive behavioral therapy, and I think this is one reason that this type of therapy has been shown to be effective for some forms of anxiety. Even if nothing in your life changes, if you can change the way you think, it is possible to reduce your anxiety level that way--at least, I've found that that approach has been able to reduce some not all) of my stress and anxiety.
