What Are Natural Remedies For Anxiety?

If you were in need of natural remedies for anxiety do you even know what you would be looking for? It seems like we throw those words around a lot lately. Everything is holistic or all-natural and good for you, but yet everyone's so unhealthy!

When it comes to an anxiety disorder and more importantly treating it, we can mean several things by natural remedies. Basically anything that does not come from the neighborhood pharmacy or the streets is a pretty good gauge for what you could call all-natural.

There are literally natural remedies for anxiety such as herbs and potions that you can get from your local health food store. There are techniques which you can use to alleviate some of your anxiety symptoms such as yoga and deep breathing exercises as well.

Does natural mean safe?

For the most part yes. I suppose what is safe and what is not so safe all depends on who you ask though. When you compare almost anything to the super dangerous drugs that come from the pharmacy it's pretty hard to be unsafe in my opinion!

And using natural remedies for anxiety that come from herbs may sound safe to most people but others do not agree. Just like anything else you may try in an effort to alleviate a symptom in your life, a natural remedy can also have side-effects.

These various herbs such as valerian root and Kava Kava used commonly to treat anxiety for thousands of years can make some people feel quite sick if not taken properly. Not to mention that if you take prescription drugs with these different herbs you could have quite a number of health issues.

So are these natural remedies for anxiety safe or not?

As with anything, you have to make sure that you aren't going it alone with this stuff. Regardless of what your opinion of your doctor is, it is still a really good idea to check with him or her just to be extra safe.

If taking herbs of this sort are not your cup of tea (pun not intended) then there are alternatives that are very safe and quite effective to treat anxiety disorders.

Cognitive behavioral therapy is one of the most widely accepted forms of treatment for persons with anxiety disorders. The basic idea of CBT is that your therapist helps you to recognize what is causing your anxiety in your core being.

Once it is understood where the anxiety you experience comes from you can begin to treat it. It sounds easier than it is, but with the help of a trained psychologist all things in life are much easier.

The fact is that you are the one that causes your own anxiety. You are in control of it and you can make it stop or stay. It may not seem so, but your mind is much more powerful in treating (and bringing on) anxiety than any drug ever could be.

So many people have really great success with behavioral therapy it's unreal. At the same time though, there are a large number of people who find a lot of relief from their anxiety symptoms by using natural remedies for anxiety that do come from the health food store.

Anxiety does not have to control your life. Living in constant fear is no way to go about your day, which you are more than likely aware by now. Personally, I don't have an issue with how you decide to cure your anxiety for the most part.

I only ask that if you decide to go the prescription drug route that you fully realize how dangerous it can be. After a number of years on these medications, you end up addicted and a lot more anxious. It's quite literally a living hell.
