Natural Remedies for Anxiety

Anxiety and nervousness are symptoms of your body responding to stress. The medical community has put the name of General Anxiety Disorder or GAD to this. Millions of Americans experience anxiety each day. It helps them deal with a tense situation in the office, or keep focused on an important speech. In general, it helps one cope. But whenanxiety and its anxiety natural remediessymptoms are in the forefront of your day, and all of life is affected, it is time to seek help.

Symptoms include the mind racing, worry, uneasiness, irritability, headaches, sweating, difficulty concentrating, heart palpitations, tightness of chest, shaking or internal trembling, need for frequent visits to the bathroom, insomnia or trouble getting to or staying asleep, nausea, exhaustion, or being on edge.

Causes come from a myriad of reasons: heredity, brain chemistry, or it could be a learned behavior due to some of life’s experiences. Some causes may come from the food we eat, the friends we hang out with, or the places we work. Using drugs or alcohol to calm or medicate are certain reasons for anxiety.

Modern medicine generally uses anti-depressants or Valium-like products to depress the nervous system. These drugs treat symptoms, not allowing the person to get to the cause of what is making them anxious, and have the ability to change. Side effects are numerous and ianxiety and nervousnessnclude dependence, becoming hard for a person to stop. Also, many people feel emotionally and mentally numb when taking these medications which, again, doesn’t allow for working through the problem that is causing the anxiety.

From the natural perspective, anxiety is a combination of apprehension, nervousness, and restlessness which may be due to the causes above, or not being able to work through problems, or express individuality. Symptoms can be expressed psychologically or physically.

Natural healing begins by finding and treating the stresses in your life. While examining what is stressing you, nourishing your nervous system with natural supplements can go a long way to helping you calm down, have a clearer mind, and relieve the symptoms of anxiety.

Next, look to your diet, first eliminating fast foods, alcohol, tobacco, coffee, and black tea. Adding a liquid calcium-magnesium twice a day may be helpful to calm down nerves and relax muscles.

Then, exercise. Exercise is perhaps the safest and most effective method of managing stress. According to studies, exercise thwarts depression and anxiety by enhancing the body’s ability to respond to stress. It seems to give the body the opportunity to practice dealing with stress, and forces the body’s physiological systems to communicate much more closely than usual: The cardiovascular system communicates with the renal system, which communicates with the muscular system. All of these are controlled by the nervous system. This workout of the body’s communication system may be the true value of exercise; the more sedentary we get, the less efficient our bodies in responding to stress.

They may feel depressed, worthless, suicidal, or have guilt with religious delusions. Anorexia may be a poor defensive mechanism to control their own life. There might be a poor mother-daughter relationship. Anorexia can also be used as a coping mechanism for deeper psychological problems.

From the medical view of anorexia, a person may need hospital stays when symptoms become life threatening. The person then needs an evaluation. Psychotherapy is almost always required. Anti-depressant medication (which may cause other problems) could be recommended. Typically, 30% of all anorexia patients do not recover.

Age Spots Natural Remedies

Age spots or discoloration of the skin is caused by excess Melanin. These unappealing brown spots are found on the hands, face or other parts of the body. Melanin is increased from sun exposure, age and hormones. Age Spots are usually treated with bleaching agents that have to be repeated because the spots always come back.

From the natural perspective, age spots generally come from hormone therapy, i.e. estrogen birth control methods or a pregnancy related event. Age spots or skin discoloration also comes from liver and colon disorders. It is easily treated, but takes 6 – 12 months. Eliminate chemical birth control and other medications which tax or damage the liver. (Evaluate your medications, especially statin drugs.)

Brown or red spots are often signs of liver imbalance. Signs of liver symptoms include irritability and anger. To support the body’s healthy functions include exercise in your routine, eliminate tobacco, alcohol, coffee, black tea, soda—These are liver robbing foods.

Acid Reflux or GERD Natural Remedies

Your stomach acid helps digest your food. This stomach acid is very strong – the same acidity as battery acid. While the stomach can handle this, the more sensitive esophagus cannot. When the stomach sphincter is too weak, stomach acid regurgitates up into the esophagus, and causes a burning sensation called Heartburn. While occasional heartburn is common, more frequent, ongoing heartburn may be Acid Reflux, or GERD. Symptoms of acid reflux include burning chest pain, sour taste in the mouth, difficulty swallowing, belching, hoarseness, and sometimes breathing difficulties. Acid Reflux symptoms are worse from lying down or bending over.

Acid Reflux may be caused by a poor diet with too much citrus, certain spices, and fatty or irritating foods. Check with your doctor as some medications promote acid reflux. Smoking, alcohol, coffee, and other foods will make Acid Reflux symptoms worse.

Doctor’s treatment for acid reflux usually entails antacids and proton pump inhibitors that stop or slow down stomach acid, which may cause nutritional deficiencies and contribute to osteoporosis and immune dysfunction. They especially reduce B vitamins, iron and calcium.

The goal from a natural perspective to help Acid Reflux is to first relieve symptoms with natural remedies, and then correct the dietary imbalances. Start with a diet of fresh fruits and vegetables and mild meats such as chicken, turkey and fish, then add cell salts, homeopathy, and herbs to correct the underlying causes of acid reflux. Additionally, it is important to address stressful conditions in a person’s life.
