Natural anxiety remedies

Posted , 6 users are following.

I've spent basically the better part of 22 hours on Google.. Yes, I know. Big mistake. I've went from having panic attacks and health anxiety about heart attacks to my current issue, heart failure.. I'm getting off my meds and hoping for the best from now on. My mind is so exhausted from overthinking and going in circles feverishly looking for problems.. Has anyone ever just stopped meds and tried the all natural anxiety remedy of counseling and breathing techniques?

    Meds aren't essential,therapy (not the same as counselling) works well. Don't expect natural remedies to do much, realistically they can't and don't do much more than the placebo effect

    first of all delaina never just stop your meds you have to be weaned off them in the past i know espescially with citalopram they are horrible just to stop and have horrible side effects. I use aromatherapy oils and meditation as I believe in the holistic rather than the conventional but I know that even the natural way sometimes isnt enough and we need a little kick start. I have found this is the worst time I have ever gone through in all my years of suffering from anxiety and depression but I have the double whammy of going through the menapause as well. I am a great believer in natural therapy but this time it beat me,although Im still meditating using oils and drinking chamolile tea. Im hoping in another month I will reduce the meds and just use the natural remedies again. for the first time in my life I will be using cbt and I am going to have hypnotherapy as I want to be able to be happy and anxiety free if thats possible after all these years. Ive been told yoga is very good too my lovely

    First you have to wean off whatever you are on. I thought you were on celexa. Your doctor needs to be aware you are weaning off. Then see a alternative doctor to guide you with natural remedies. Natural remedies arm the body with the nitrient it needs or get depleted from as a effect of anxiety. Typical natural remedies are a good reputable b complex, b12, magnessium glycinate and then a healthy diet geared to high magnessium foods and high potassium foods and balanced. Keep very hydrated many are dehydrated and dont realize it. Sugar levels (natural sugar levels from fruits and such) have to be kept level. Grazing is better then a huge meal. Great foods to add to your diet are celery,  wild frozen blueberries, papaya, mangoes (at night help sleep), bananas and avacadoes. They are good for anxiety. If you cant sleep suntheanine l theanine is useful. Everyone probably has something to add to this. Your true best bet is to see an alternative doctor to guide you. You will need to revisit and relearn cbt, mindfullness and proper belly breathing and meditatiins.
