Natural Remedies for Anxiety

Natural remedies for anxiety can be very effective. And have little side-effects.


I always like to try natural remedies for anxiety before going the "drug" route. Natural remedies really are powerful and are not addictive!

So let us look at natural treatments for anxiety...


We all have much reason to be anxious in this unsettled world. Our futures feel insecure and unpredictable - and that is what causes anxiety - worry about future events!

You cannot control the future but you can take steps to be calm now! And so be better able to make decisions regarding the future.


Causes Of Anxiety

Anxiety disorders
come in two basic forms...

The chronic form involves a recurring sense of foreboding and worry accompanied by mild physical symptoms.

A panic attack, on the other hand, comes on suddenly and unexpectedly, with symptoms that are often mistaken for a heart attack or another life-threatening condition. There is sometimes a feeling of not being able to get a full breath of air. Physical symptoms of panic attacks come on suddenly and diminish suddenly and can be quite frightening.

Some research suggests that the central nervous systems of people with anxiety disorders may overreact to stress and take a longer time than most to return to a calmer state.

Symptoms may begin with an upsetting event - an accident, divorce, or death. And sometimes there is no obvious cause.

There may also be a biochemical basis. Studies have shown that people who are prone to panic attacks have higher blood levels of lactic acid, a chemical produced when muscles metabolize sugar without enough oxygen.

Other research suggests that anxiety may be the result of an overproduction of stress hormones by the brain and adrenal glands.
