We all experience anxiety from time to time. In a way, it’s a natural response to cause us to take some sort of action. You worry about something and then find a way to fix it so you don’t have to worry anymore.
For some people, though, anxiety and panic attacks interfere with their lives. They develop a sense of “fear of fear” as they anticipate another panic attack. All of that anxiety takes a toll on their health.
So, it’s a serious issue and millions suffer. Unfortunately, conventional medicine has a difficult time “treating” something that lacks an assignable cause. Anti-anxiety medications may help, but they also carry side effects as well as withdrawal, tolerance and dependency issues.
And by, the way, I don’t want any of my friends here at Health Hound putting themselves in harms way by discontinuing their medications. Some of them have some very serious withdrawal symptoms and you need to talk to your doctor before you stop taking them!
The problems with the medications and lack of “cure” have people turning towards natural remedies for anxiety and panic attacks. And as usual, there are some awesome products and some that have been dreamt up by scam artists looking to prey on those that need help. Shame on them!
There are some very good natural ways to alleviate anxiety. Stress management, exercise programs, better eating habits, herbals and other therapies such as color therapy, music therapy or aromatherapy are some great alternatives that may truly help people who suffer from anxiety or panic attacks.
So, stick with me, your health hound, and I’ll sniff out the products and let you know when they wind up in the doghouse or if they deserve a 5-bone rating! I’ll use my 8-step investigation plan to let you know whom you can trust and who needs a good old-fashioned rolled up newspaper!
