Anxiety can afflict anyone at any time, and in some circumstances, is a healthy response to what is going on around them. It is normal to feel anxious before a sport competition or an exam – helping us to focus or prepare for the task at hand. It is normal for a parent to worry about their teenage son or daughter who has not come home after midnight, but not normal if they become anxious each time the teenager leaves the house. Anxiety cures – both allopathic and homeopathic- are available by either doctors or herbalists, and some are available in your local drugstore or whole foods shop.
Anxiety, like most things, only becomes a problem when it becomes excessive. This usually occurs when people cannot calm themselves down over a prolonged period of time, or react in a situation that is disproportionate to the threat. Unfortunately, in our current age, our lives are frittered with many genuine anxieties. The fear of crime, unemployment and oneâ€™s health can be some sources of anxiety that may call for potential cures. There has never been such a demand for anxiety cures in our modern world.
Anxiety manifests itself in many forms, ranging from muscle tension, through digestive problems, migraines, asthma, sleeplessness and heart disease. It does not normally kill, but can be a predisposing factor is many other serious illnesses. Finding anxiety cures have never been so important; however, some people are now choosing to take more natural remedies, such as essential oils and herbal teas, rather than receiving stronger prescription drugs from their doctors.
If one suffers from repeated anxiety attacks, it is advisable to seek a qualified aromatherapist rather than undergo self-treatment. For milder forms of anxiety, essential oils can be used in massages, face compresses, steam inhalation or baths. Some oils commonly used as anxiety cures include: Camomile, Sandalwood, Patchouli, Jasmine, Juniper, Ylang-Ylang, Geranium and Clary Sage. Each person will have their own preference to the oils, and their preference is normally an indication of their state of mind.
Another way people can use natural remedies as anxiety cures are through herbal teas or infusions. Teas without caffeine are usually recommended and are a great benefit when used in tandem with essential oils. Chamomile, Lemon and Peppermint teas help to calm the mind and cure anxiety after a difficult day at work or before a potentially stressful situation.
The use of herbal remedies combined with moderate exercise can help the body cope with anxiety better. Some people use yoga, meditation or relaxation exercises that cost little or no money and reap numerous health benefits. I have found that often the best anxiety cures come at little or no cost.
Anxiety is a part of our twentieth-first century lives, and it is a common product of many complex situations we face daily. We cannot completely rid ourselves of fear, and different anxiety cures work differently for each person. Instead we can try different methods of relaxation when we feel anxiety start to take over- helping us to better manage the stress of living in these modern times.
