Natural Remedies: Anxiety Attacks

With anxiety being so prominent these days, with over 60 million suffering, it’s natural that pharmaceutical companies have developed tons of medications relating to treating anxiety and its symptoms. Sometimes when you see commercials promoting a medication, the potential for side effects seem to far outweigh the positives.

This is why you are seeing more and more natural remedies for anxiety attacks being talked about. People just don’t want to go on medications and have the potential to experience these side effects. Also, it can be argued that medications do not solve the problem, they simply mask it. Anxiety is all about training your thought processes. It may take visits to an anxiety clinic to truly be ‘cured’ of this unfortunate ailment. It might take a combination of many remedies. It won’t be solved with a pill.

Here are a couple of tips to help you become less symptomatic when it comes to anxiety attacks:

Exercise

The most natural outlet for anxiety. The body is going into ‘flight or fight’ mode when an anxiety attack is coming. Exercise allows your body to move about and get all the energy out, without having to think about the actual ‘danger’ that is setting off these alarms. Exercise also releases more serotonin in the brain. More serotonin is known to reduce the severity of anxiety.

Healthy, well-balanced diet

A varied diet that contains quality protein sources, complex carbohydrates, calcium, potassium, and iron will be beneficial. When the body is under stress, these essential nutrients are depleted. Foods that are high in these include chicken, fish, eggs, whole grains, broccoli, milk, and bananas. Taking a multivitamin once a day will help ensure that you receive most of these nutrients. Sometimes it’s difficult to get all the nutrients you need from foods, especially if you do not like certain food groups.

Herbs

Herbs have been used since ancient times to alleviate many ailments; in fact, they have paved the way for modern medicine. Herbs are still used to this day, and there are many out there known to help people with anxiety. One of the most popular herbs for this is kava kava. People take it at bedtime because it can be highly sedative. It’s used to help people sleep and who have difficulty with anxiety at night. Other notables include passionflower, ginkgo biloba, valerian root, and chamomile.

As you can see, you are not alone in the dark if you don’t want to go the pharmaceutical way. There are many sources that provide valuable in-depth information of how to naturally fight this disorder. It may appear to be an uphill battle; however learning about these natural remedies for anxiety attacks can go a long way in setting up the right treatment plan that works for you.
