34 Home Remedies for Anxiety

Having anxiety and panic attack could be a very traumatizing experience. When I first got my panic attack, I thought I was going crazy and dying. It was a horrible feeling. At the peak of my anxiety, my body was overwhelmed with cold and shaking and my heart beat very fast. I am a kind of guy who always avoid seeing doctors, but after several panic/anxiety attack incidents, I decided to see a doctor. My doctor said that it was all in the mind, especially because I lived a stressful life. My doctor prescribed me alprazolam (xanax) 0.5 mg, to be taken whenever neccessary. So I took the drug the following night for the first time. 20 minutes after taking it, I fell into a nice deep dreamless sleep. It was 11 at night and I woke up at 8 in the morning, feeling totally fresh. I felt like born again, and was really awed with the drug. This is a miracle drug, I said to myself. After that I have taken several more within one month, everytime with the same effect of heavy sedation and restful sleep. Is my anxiety gone completely? Too bad, it's not what happened. Anxieties seemed to come more often than before I took the drugs. Before the drugs I had varying levels of anxiety like every two or three weeks on average. After the drugs, I felt the anxiety coming almost every day.

But I guess I am a lucky person because I started to do my 'google research' before it's too late. I found so many stories on alprazolam withdrawals. When I cross-checked with my doctor, my doctor said the opposite. He said that the drug is the safest of its kind, and do not have addictive side effects as long as taken appropriately. There is no explaining of how much frequent I can take it. The doctor sticks to 'take it whenever neccessary'. To err on the safe side, I decided to stop taking the drug.

For awhile after stopping taking the drug, anxieties still came every day. But I learn something about it. A natural anxiety, no matter how bad, will not last very long. If only I had taken the drug for a very long term, it would be some kind of drug-residue-induced anxiety, which would last longer and heavier. But like I said, I am very lucky to be suspiscious about the 'wonder' drug before it's too late.

Everytime I felt anxiety coming, I tried to focus on something else. I found that distraction is the key to overcome anxities. I started to collecting my own distraction methods. (I will share my distraction methods in my blog about anxiety cureanxietyforgood (dot) wordpress (dot) com/ )

One morning I had a terrible anxiety, my body started shaking but I kept trying to get rid of the “what-the-hell-is-happening” thoughts and trying to fill my mind with any other thoughts not related to what was happening. My anxiety subsided very fast, the cold and shaking dissapeared gradually. It took around 30 minutes to get back to normal. I think this is quite fast, considering how bad the cold and shaking I had. My ability to overcome this anxiety gave me confidence.

For several mornings in a row, anxiety struck bad, but everytime I could overcome it better and better. After that, some days pass without anxiety at all. On some stressful days, anxiety ‘visits’ me again, but only for a very short minute.

I said to myself that I will never be anxiety-free, but I mean that in a positive understanding. Anxiety in a certain small amount is needed, just like any other human emotions. I won't make 'anxiety' a dreadful word everytime I hear it.

I hope this story can be of some help.

One thing that I find interesting with all these anxiety treatments is that most of them don't work, however here is a natural remedy for anxiety so that you can better move forward with less stress and more health.

First off, solving anxiety is a full body issue where you'll need to change your lifestyle, food, diet, exercise, herbs.

All the anxiety started within, however when you added more bad food with gmos and other things that are harmful, as well as did not do too much physical exercise because that bad food slowed you down.

Now for some natural remedies for it:

Ashwagandha
Seven Source Mushroom Extract
Wood Betony

I have experienced anxiety for several years. In the middle of the night, I may wake up in a sweat for no particular reason. I also experience anxiety during the day. It's a very uncomfortable feeling. Sometimes feeling despair, and it interrupts my flexible intelligence. I have found ways to help this.

My anxiety comes from a voice that I will call my Inner Critic. I think that all people have an Inner Critic to some degree and I believe this comes from early childhood memories. Remember this: your Inner Critic tells you things that are lies about yourself. It is up to your Wise Man to remind you differently. Your Wise Man is another voice inside. A voice that tells you the truth. When I take Action, instead of letting my Patterns take control of my actions, I usually do the things that I need to do to make my anxiety go down. It is a skill that I have learned. It gets better the more you use it.

Listen to your Wise Man!

I found out about this method through 'The Linden Method' for Anxiety and Panic Attacks.

Basically what you have to do is... Imagine that you are in the Most dreadful place that your Anxiety loves! Whether it be on a very unsafe plane with no working bathrooms! headed for God knows where?! or how long!? or maybe in an over crowded rock concert?! on a very hot day and you are crowded right in the center!.. As you do this and your anxiety comes over like a plague to say hello! ...Tell it that you want even More!! ask for More! Demand it!! .. According to Charles Linden, Anxiety if 'fear of fear'.. When you do as above, You no longer fear the Anxiety/Panic Attack, Your brain no longer lets the Anxiety manifest. The anxiety no longer has any fuel as Linden would say and you will begin to feel the Anxiety/Panic Attack to literally melt away!! The next time you are experiencing an Anxiety/Panic Attack just use this method as described. According to Linden, Most of his patients found that they only had to do this one time! that is how effective and powerful this method is! I can personally tell you that this has changed my life Drastically! I have my life Back!!

I have suffered from anxiety all my life and now as a grandmother I find as I look back on my life that things could have been different. What ever it takes to feel at peace is worth trying. Pray, exercise vitamins and talk therapy all helped me, but sometime life circumstances just will cause reoccurrences. I am dealing with a chronically ill husband; and I find I worry continually about his health which in turn causes me to obcess about mine. I struggle with white coat hypetension, etc. My doctor reassures me that things are not as bad as I envision them, but we all know for the short term this is helpful, but ultimately we become trapped again by our thoughts. I truly believe that anxiety is a form of genetic imbalance that is given to us at birth and will be with us forever. I look for 'pockets of peace' throughout my day and when they appear, I feel so thankful!! Keep the faith, breathe deep and remember we are not alone.

Excercise every day. I walk 30-45 minutes a day and it has transformed my life. If I am too anxious to leave the house i do a cardio video for 30 minutes. I also take l-theanine though the health food store changed their formula so I'm back to square one with herbal 'back up.' I find if I take care of myself as best as I can it contributes to my self esteem which helps with the positive self talk.

I am in love with nature, so i tend to use it to my advantages. My mother had a problem getting over her anxiety and she would always freak. I was experimenting with herbs when i made this concocsin (sorry for the spelling) that included peppermint leaves, honey, and a pinch of sugar. Boil the water (regular tea heat) add the peppermint leaves, pour it in a cup. Then add the honey and sugar. Make sure you sit down while drinking and take deep breaths!

If you truly suffer from anxiety issues or a poor emotional state due to some sort of traumatic or extreme experiece in your life, then I would suggest one thing.
This product helps bring certain emotions to the surface, emotions that if left locked up can keep you in a stagnant state. It also helps individuals deal with such emotions as grief, pain, loneliness, and/or despair.
It is completely homeopathic, and can usally be found at any health food store- you don't have to order some product from the internet.

When I took up 'running' (aged 54) my anxiety levels dropped dramatically, and I experienced unprecedented feelings of sweetness and well-being. It was a phenomenal effort at first (for the very committed couch-potato that I had always been) but within days the results were so phenomenal that I started writing a book, about the adventure of learning to 'run' in my middle years. Since then I have lapsed, and returned to my former lethargic life-style. My fear levels are presently quite crippling. I am resolved to start my 'running' regime again (as soon as it stops raining), and to finish the book this winter !
