Are you suffering from stress and anxiety?
Stress/anxiety has become increasingly more common, with over 40 million people suffering throughout America. This excessive feeling of worry, nervousness, muscle tension, sleeplessness, and agitation make daily life harder than it already is.
Living with anxiety makes living your life more difficult. You feel trapped, unable to do the things you want to because of it - you are out of touch with your family and friends, your work is suffering, and you're heading down a path you never thought you would. Constant stress can even lead to depression.
You don't have to live this way. There are many treatments that will help you gain your life back and begin enjoying it once again.
What Causes Stress/Anxiety?
Various life factors contribute to stress and anxiety. Many times it’s the result of a traumatic event such as the death of a loved one, loss of a job, having severe health issues, or it’s hereditary.
How Is Stress and Anxiety Treated?
It doesn’t matter if the root cause is genetic or environmental; there are treatments. You can find relief.
Traditional doctors often prescribe pharmaceutical drugs to help relieve stress and anxiety, such as Xanax, Prozac, and Ativan. While these may be effective in some cases, they have been proven to be highly addictive and only treat the symptom, not the root cause.
Several studies have been done on herbal remedies’ effectiveness for treating anxiety such as chamomile, passionflower, kava, lemon balm, and lavender. But these herbs alone won’t necessarily treat your anxiety.
Uncovering what the underlying cause will help to find the best combination of natural treatment.
Various potential causes can be neurological imbalances, gut issues, or pituitary dysfunction, which can be determined by your family history, medical history, environmental exposures, sleep patterns, physical activity, and emotional stressors.
