The early man’s’- our ancestors were bound to have a definite amount of stress and anxiety owing to their habitat and living conditions.
Passing on from centuries, we unknowingly foster the growth of this stress even today for the reasons we ourselves also can’t conceive of. The result is that we develop anxiety even for the most simple life issues.
Though, initially it may be present in small amount but in time our brain and the gut form a prolific self-feeding loop, the emotions tend to rise leading us to experience a rush of fear, anxiety, and stress in high amounts.
Now, this can affect our body chemistry making it vulnerable to a host of diseases.
It is our recommendation that even if you see early symptoms take the help Homeopathy which is among the most popular natural treatments for anxiety. This way you allow your body to work through its natural healing mechanism.
Though homeopathy works for chronic cases as well, but why elongate the time and increase the complexity when you can have it all treated naturally right from the start.
Apart from homeopathic help, here are few natural treatments for anxiety that you can try along with the homeopathic treatment to boost the recovery.
Further for a more enhanced effect, during the initial consultation itself ask the homeopath, what natural treatments are most suitable for you.
As a homeopath prime focus is to heal you on all planes-mind, body and soul, these natural remedies are also a part whether on prescription or a homeopath may guide you through the same.
Drink Chamomile tea:
Also called as the night time tea, this tea serves to boost the emotional health. One of the most reported symptoms of anxiety is insomnia. Chamomile tea aids in relaxation and fights irritability, providing a healthy sleep.
By incorporating this antioxidant rich brew in your daily regimen, you can keep the cortisol-the stress-producing hormone levels significantly low.
Nothing is more important than a healthy diet as a natural treatment for anxiety. Refrain from processed foods as they lack nutrients, lack fibers, are high in carbohydrates and trans fats.
This, in turn, affects your emotional, physical and mental strength.
Have a diet supported by real food supplanting the cooked food with some raw salad rich in microbes. This helps in flushing out toxins from your body.
Some foods which you should avoid
- Excessive dairy products as they contribute to adrenaline levels
- Caffeinated drinks
- Fried foods
- Sugary foods
Practice a good sleep schedule
Sleep is our body’s natural mechanism to restore our energy levels and regulate most of the vital functions. If you are not taking a healthful sleep, possible symptoms arise in the form of lack of enthusiasm, stress, and anxiety.
For a healthy sleep, try these remedies
- Try to spend some time in natural light of the day
- Take small naps 1—20 minutes in the afternoon
- Sleep and wake at the same time
Though available for centuries but it is only recently it gained a surge in its popularity. Anxiety is mainly caused by our inability to correct past or control the troublesome future
We should practice mindfulness to bring back our awareness from past and future to the present moment.
Quiet the mind
Amygdale, a small group of nuclei situated at between the temporal lobes of the brain is responsible for processing the emotions related to the survival. When it starts associating any possible fear, it causes fear conditioning and we dread that possibility.
Meditation, yoga and breathing exercise helps us to calm down and analyze these possible fears before they get conditioned by amygdala and hence reduce anxiety.
If none of the above works, homeopathic treatment which has a proven record of effectively treating patients with anxiety will work for you. Consult a well-trained homeopathic practitioner.
