Natural Remedies for Anxiety




Currently, anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the United States, and affect 40 million adults, or 18 percent of the country’s population.

A person who suffers from anxiety will often focus on future prospects and become overwhelmed with fear that everything will turn out badly. These feelings can restrict a person’s ability to work, maintain relationships, or leave the house. The condition also may come with side effects that resemble health disorders, such as sweating, shaking, increased heart rare bowel issues, and hyperventilation.

Instead of treating the symptoms of anxiety with drugs — like Lexapro, Luvox, Paxil, Prozac, Zoloft, Cymbalta and Effexor — try treating mild symptoms with these seven natural remedies. Passion flower, ashwagandha, St Johns Wart, lemon balm, 5-HTP, chamomile and meditation have all been proven effective in studies, and each have unique benefits.

For example, a recent randomized, double-blind study from Philadelphia-based University of Pennsylvania Medical Center examined patients with generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) who took chamomile supplements for eight weeks. The results showed a significant decrease in anxiety symptoms compared to patients taking a placebo.
