Although the treatment is done with medications, you can add some teas and natural supplements to your routine to reduce anxiety symptoms. Did you know that?
Homemade medicines for anxiety are a great option if you suffer from stress.
However, they must never be used as a substitute for the treatment prescribed by a doctor or therapy sessions.
Some of the main symptoms of an anxiety disorder are unregulated appetite, sleep changes, muscle tension, fear of speaking in public, seeing danger everywhere, excessive worry, irrational fear, and constant restlessness.
There are also physical symptoms, like tremors, fatigue, shortness of breath, racing heart, excessive sweat, cold hands, dry mouth, dizziness, nausea, diarrhea, abdominal discomfort, hot flashes, chills, frequent urination, trouble swallowing, and the sensation of being choked.
Now that you know the signs and symptoms of anxiety, let’s see some natural medicines that can be used to lessen it:
Valerian is a great option for people suffering from anxiety caused by insomnia or poor sleep. It contains valeric acid, which acts in the cells of the nervous system. This component has a tranquilizer effect and also helps regulate the sleep cycle.
It is a medicinal plant whose scientific name is Piper methysticum. The kavalactones in it are natural substances with similar action to benzodiazepines, one of the medicines for anxiety. Did you know that?
Although the usual way of consuming kava is a tea made of its roots, an even better option is a supplement, which can be found in natural health stores. This way, it is easier to control the amount of active substance you are ingesting.
Ashwagandha, also known as Indian ginseng, is another medicinal plant with proven effects against anxiety disorder and chronic stress.
Widely used in India for its adaptogenic action, which regulates body stress by reducing cortisol production. The stress hormone is harmful when present in the body in increased amounts for long periods.
These herbs are contraindicated for pregnant or nursing women, children, and people with immune system disorders.
Besides the 3 herbs mentioned here, passion fruit juice and chamomile tea are other great alternatives to fight anxiety.
Whenever you feel any of the mentioned symptoms creeping up, try taking a relaxing shower or massage to alleviate your tension.
