A Natural Approach To Health
Living With Anxiety
I had a question the other day about anxiety.
Anxiety is a normal human emotion everyone experiences at times.
Many people feel anxious, or nervous, when faced with a problem or some sort of stressful situation.
Anxiety disorders, however, are different.
They can cause so much distress that it interferes with your ability to lead a normal life.
An anxiety disorder is a serious mental illness.
For people with anxiety disorders, worry and fear are constant and overwhelming, and can be crippling.
Symptoms vary depending on the type of anxiety disorder, but general symptoms include feelings of panic, fear, and uneasiness; uncontrollable, obsessive thoughts; repeated thoughts or flashbacks of traumatic experiences; nightmares; ritualistic behaviors, like repeated hand washing; problems sleeping; cold or sweaty hands and/or feet; shortness of breath; palpitations; an inability to be still and calm; dry mouth; numbness or tingling in the hands or feet; nausea; muscle tension; and dizziness.
The exact cause of anxiety disorders isn’t known, but they are NOT due to personal weakness, a character flaw, or poor upbringing.
Research is now showing these disorders are caused by a combination of things, including chemical imbalances in the body and environmental stress.
In addition, studies have shown anxiety disorders run in families.
Some things you can do to minimize symptoms of anxiety are listed below.
*Drink 6-8 cups of purified water daily.
*Get an adequate amount of Omega-3 essential fats.
*Learn and practice stress relief and relaxation techniques.
*Explore energy medicine techniques.
*Consider herbs (for example, chamomile and valerian).
*Learn and practice deep-breathing techniques.
*You may need more vitamins and minerals because stress tends to burn these off your system.
*Be connected to nature. Look into the idea of “being grounded”. Spend time outside barefoot.
*Get plenty of exercise, activity, sunshine, outdoors, and fresh air.
*Try to eliminate body pollution.
*Try to eliminate blood sugar fluctuations.
*Try to identify triggers (for example, toxic products, foods, fragrances).
*Try to eliminate sugar- and chemical-laden junk and processed foods.
*Try to eliminate caffeine and alcohol.
*Review my post on Candida, because many times this can be a significant influence.
*Avoid an acidic body.
*Be aware of the negative effects of electromagnetic fields that can disrupt your “energy body”.
*Increased amounts of B-complex and/or Calcium/Magnesium may be needed to ease stress, especially during any “attacks” or acute situations.
