I want to deal with anxiety naturally.
Hiya. I'm so sorry to hear you have been going through such a hard time. I can appreciate how hellish your experience has been, ive also been there.
There is a lot that you can do for yourself naturally, so that is the good news. Anxiety and panic attacks is one of the conditions that allows for great flexibitity in the way it is treated.
The first thing i would say to you is to start reading up about anxiety and panic. Go to your local library or bookstore (if you can afford it) and get books on anxiety/panic attacks, look for books that both explain how anxiety works, effects your body and also gives you techniques on how to control them. Find books about CBT for anxiety also, CBT is Cognitive behavioural Therapy and will expalin numerous ways of how to change your behaviour when anxious and panicking. Some good books that i have that have really helped are 'The Mood Cure' by Julia Ross, M.A.... It is a four step program to changing your emotional state. She covers imbalances within the body and how to rebalance using vitamins/minerals and other supplements such as herbal. She covers the diet and what foods to eat to help anxiety. She also uses techniques to help panic attacks etc.... so this book is def one to get your hands on. Another is a 3 book program called 'Overcoming Panic and Agoraphobia Self Help Course' by Derrick Silcove & Vijaya Manicasagar. Part 1 expalins what anxiety is and how it effects the body, Part two then goes into techniques on how to overcome panic attacks and part three also. Another very good sorce.
So the first book covers panic from more of a nutritional point of view and the second, self help series looks more from an active, doing exercises such as breathing exercises, distracton etc..... it also makes you look at to why you suffer panic attacks.... it makes you take a look at yourself. If you dont have these at your local library you can find them for a very reasonable price on amazon.
Also have you ever considered having therapy? I actually think it would be a great idea to use both the books with a professional psychologist, the two combined would make an excellent therapy base. The psychologist may be able to advise you also on supplements to use.
For now, you could use herbal supplements such as valerian, hops, camomile, passionflower that come as a combined supplement or as individual in tea or capsule form that will help you with the panic attacks. valerian is a wonderful herb that will help with sleep as well as anxiety adn panic. You can choose to have valerian as a tea, but be warned it smells like stinky socks..lol however tastes nothing like them..thank goodness. A couple of cups before bed will help you drift off like a baby. But experiement, try different forms and see what works for you. I would recommend going to your local health food shop and having a chat with a member of staff, they will be able to put you on the right road.
Anyway i think that is enough for now, there is a lot there to get you started.
Hope it has been of help. Good-luck Read More At : ...
