Alternative Anxiety Cure for Milder Forms of Anxiety


Visitors: 479

A lot of us regularly feel anxious or even depressed due to social pressures, work issues, family matters, or relationship problems, etc. But most of us are not clinically depressed or suffering from any type of anxiety disorder. Not to the point that will take over and destroy our lives.

Those who are clinically depressed or suffering from anxiety disorder often have symptoms such as suicidal thoughts, inactivity, self isolation from society, self harm, lack of concentration and many others. When a person is showing signs and symptoms of clinically depressed and anxious, immediate help should be sought by going to a qualified medical professional. However, for those that are suffering from a milder form of anxiety, then there are alternatives to the usual anti-depressant drugs that usually appear to make things worse with its bad side effects for less serious cases of anxiety.

Alternative treatments can come in the form of herbal remedies. Of course it is definitely best to seek medical help first before you decide to take any herbal remedies, especially if you’re already taking other medication.

St. John’s Wart, Ginseng, Passion Flower, are some of the popular herbal remedies with many people reporting positive results using these herbs. St. John’s Wart is probably the most widely used to treat anxiety and perhaps has the largest body of supporting evidence in terms of its effectiveness. But remember to consult your doctor before taking any medication, even herbal medication, because the problem with herbs for anxiety is that it does not require approval from government and drug regulation agencies, which means there could be unforeseen side effects, However, many herbs have been used in medical applications for a very long time, longer than chemical drugs, and there are anecdotal evidence of its medicinal properties.

The most important thing to remember is that there are no guarantees with herbal remedies. Great care must be taken to ensure that you are not exposing yourself to any other problems or side effects. Herbal remedies used as an alternative to conventional drugs should provide some relief to your anxiety if used in moderation. There are also no addictive dangers which are commonly associated with prescription medications, but it cannot be assumed that herbal remedies are a safer option. Always take the recommended dosage and seek medical advice first before you decide to take any herbal medications.
