Natural Remedy for Anxiety
Around 18% percent of the United States population is living with an anxiety disorder, and many often look to find a natural remedy for anxiety. Some may avoid looking for help through a psychologist because they are afraid of being given medication with potentially adverse side effects; however, there are many ways to treat anxiety that do not involve prescription drugs.
Because intense trauma literally re-writes the way the brain is wired, that is a strong point to focus on for treatment. Cognitive behavioral therapy, or CBT, is considered a very successful method for treating anxiety because it involves training the brain to think and respond in new ways.
Some people seek help through things like guided imagery or support groups when they are feeling overwhelmed. Others use simple ways to help cope with stress, like exercising, aromatherapy, or a relaxing massage. If you feel like you are having trouble during this time, please don’t ever hesitate to reach out for help. A good source of information can be found here on the NIMH website for resources regarding mental healthcare.
