I feel compelled to share my journey with anxiety. Im not to drag out my history with anxiety. My recovery process is somewhat extensive lol. I am a believer in natural remedies when it comes to our bodies freaking out on us. I'm going to give a run down on what I do daily...sometimes not even everyday anymore.
7 Am.. take 2 omega 3's (fish oil) and 1000mg of vitamin c. Around 9am I take a mood boost(a mixture of herbs in pill form). I also sip on chamomile in the afternoon. This could make you sleepy but most anxiety sufferers will not have that problem. If I'm feeling anxious still I will take an extra 200mg of L-theanine. Once I get home around 6 I might have another cup of tea. Around 8-9 I take a hot bath with 1 cup of Epsom salt. And then before bed I take a magnesium pill and 2 muscle relax (another blend of herbs..skullcap,valerian etc)
Those are just the supplements I incorporate each day. There's also the nutrition aspect. I recommend earing clean as possible!!!! For example..I have for breakfast a banana...lunch will be a sandwich with whole grain bread, turkey or chicken (natural source of vit b) with tomato and mustard. Dinner I will have eggs or a poultry with veggies or potato. Snacks I also keep as clean as possible but I do have an ice cream bar in the evenings I also excersice. ..this some of the best advice I can give you. This will help in so many ways...your mood, your sleep etc. Try to get at least 20 minutes in...3-4 days a week. If you suffer with sleep problems then everday. Make it a sweaty workout..it's easier than it sounds
I went from taking klonopin and effexor everyday to this. I no longer take any form of prescribed medication!!! I have experimented for a while with these things and found this really works. I can't say that it works for everyone but I believe it would most. It's worth trying. Don't be scared to get off the prescriptions. I also found that finding a small locally owned health store helped. Much more personal and will help you!! Please if you have any questions feel free to ask
