Anxiety Self Help

In recent years, anxiety has proven twice as likely as depression to strike adults. Anxiety occurs in varying degrees, from small, situational outbreaks, to serious mood disorders. The numerous types of anxiety are reflected in a nearly equal amount of treatment methods. Severe, prolonged anxiety that occurs as part of a mood disorder is treated through medications and therapy, just like major depressive disorders. Smaller, less debilitating forms of anxiety can often be countered with more simple methods, including self-help.

Anxiety self help can be administered in several forms. Just as with antidepressant medications, specific treatments may have more favorable results with one individual than with another, so experimentation may be necessary in order to find the best technique for the individual. However, all forms of anxiety, from common to severe, share at least one important self-help technique: maintaining the proper perspective. Anxiety and related mood disorders can …

Purselane (Portulaca oleracea)

Purslane, a member of the Portulacaceae family has grown wild in my garden for years. It grows on a straight smooth looking reddish brown stem and has fleshy leaves that grow at the joins and ends of the stems. I always referred to it as “The Rubber Tree Weed” and left it alone to grow because it was pretty and didn’t strangle my vegetable plants or make the garden look “weedy.”

Plantain (Plantago major)

Plantain is another weed that I have had an abundance of for all of the years that I have owned my home. Unlike the Purslane, I did not find it pretty or of any good use for that matter. That is until my mother-in law came over as …

Natural Treatments For Anxiety Disorder

Anxiety disorder can have a severely negative effect on a person's daily life. What makes the condition especially tumultuous, is that it produces symptoms capable of inducing increasingly stronger reactions. This creates a dynamic that tends to lock people inside the effects of this disorder, making treatment all the more difficult.

For example, excessive worry, stress, and anxiety, in tandem with elements of heredity and environment may produce a panic attack in a person suffering from an anxiety disorder. Panic attacks produce a number of discomforting reactions, including shortness of breath, dizziness, tightness of chest, disorientation, and fatigue. As these symptoms emerge during an attack, an individual may be so overwhelmed by the effects of anxiety that he is unable to experience the symptoms in perspective, and instead start to believe that he is dying. The thought of sudden death only serves to produce more anxiety, exacerbating the panic attack …

Anxiety Treatments

While less serious anxiety can sometimes be countered with simple relaxation techniques, any significant degree of anxiety requires more intensive measures. Anxiety is usually treated with a combination of therapy and medication. These medications can include antidepressants, as well as herbal, vitamin, and holistic remedies. Therapy is employed in conjunction with the medication in order to help the patient gain control over the thought processes that instigate the anxiety.

One popular method or treatment is cognitive behavioral therapy. This approach assists individuals to develop the mental skills necessary to recognize and gain a degree of control over the symptoms of anxiety. These skills help in restoring the cognitive balance that can get disrupted by anxiety and depression. When this balance is restored, an individual is better equipped to deal with anxiety symptoms on his or her own, even after completing therapy.
