I was in 4th grade when i started to suffer from anxiety. It has been a very difficult times in my life that i thought that i will live that way for the rest of my life until the end. I live my life time to time with medications and check ups and took them in a cycle for years. If you have the situation under control,it is great by then but, chances are when you use drugs that are prescribed to you the effect is still bring you back to the same track. It is so hard to live by medications and drugs and the hardest part is that medication that mess up your brain. I got tired of the system that i lived by then and that i decided to research on cures for anxiety in a natural way.
This article was being created to share the output of my research on how to become a natural anxiety free.
There are many things you can do to cure and even relieve anxiety naturally. There are herbal remedies, exercise/breathing techniques and thought processes. Those are generally the best ones and are most widely used to help relax the tension anxiety can cause.
You may have noticed already that your anxiety is a vicious cycle of worried thoughts. Whether or not you’re aware of what you’re worried about, that’s what it is. In my case, I have a general idea of what is causing my anxiety but not exactly. I am pointing this out because anytime you feel like you’re going to have anxiety, your mind expects it and you believe you’re going to have anxiety and BOOM, panic attack. You must control those thoughts from becoming too active. When it’s not on your mind, you’re not having anxiety. That’s why you will hear some say go out and ride your bike or get up and walk around, talk to someone, go jogging, or go to the gym. That’s the physical part of curing anxiety which we will talk about later on.
Talking about herbal solutions to anxiety cures are best to be discussed.
Herbal remedies are fun. I always loved the idea of being able to go to the store and buying certain things that would help cure my anxiety. People have said that Passion Flower is a great herbal solution to anxiety. I’ve also read drinking Green Tea can help from a few places as well. All these might claim they cure anxiety but you’ll have to find out on your own to see what works best for you. There are many natural sedatives that won’t knock you out and make you feel like a zombie for the entire day. They will only help reduce the high levels of anxiety which is caused by your subconscious mind which makes it feel so uncontrollable.
The list below are natural herbal anxiety cures:
L-theanine – produces a feeling of tranquility
Passion Flower – reduces anxiety and promotes a positive outlook.
Valerian – calms both mind and body
Magnesium Taurinate – calms the mind and supports mental wellbeing.
Niacinamide – contains anti-anxiety properties.
And others as well.
Physical exercise is also a great way to take your mind off things. Being active and getting exercise helps by expelling your excess negative emotions and adrenaline. You will feel more relaxed and enter a more calm state of being, explained in hippy terms. Here’s the technical reason why getting exercise helps reduce anxiety.
“Exercise increases blood flow to the brain, releases hormones, stimulates the nervous system, and increases levels of morphine-like substances found in the body (such as beta-endorphin) that can have a positive effect on mood. Exercise may trigger a neurophysiological high-a shot of adrenaline or endorphins- that produces an antidepressant effect in some, an anti-anxiety effect in others, and a general sense of “feeling better” in most.”

Need I explain more? Just find something active to do on a nice day or evening. I like to ride my bike, play tennis, go swimming and also have a gym membership which is perfect. Enjoy staying active and you’ll have better mental but also physical results.
For professional help Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) can be very effective. The whole idea behind this therapy is to control your negative thoughts before they attack. You ultimately need to retrain the way to think. When you think about, it’s the same thoughts, same cycle, brought on by the same negative thoughts which can repeat itself over and over unless you retrain your brain.
Certain bad situations or potential good situations that are overwhelming, etc. might be uncomfortable to you which will cause you to have worried thoughts which can generate into anxiety and even panic attacks. This is not a method that happens over night but it very very effective because that is the key, to avoid those thoughts that make you anxious.
Some things I would do to deal with anxiety for the time being is breath deep and slowly. I know you’ve heard that before but it works and works great. I also like to call friends or businesses and talk about something fun. I also try to think positive. Think “This is not something to be anxious over because this (put something positive here) is going to happen and it will be soooo cool!”
The main thing you must understand is that anxiety is an uncomfortable, negative, irrational thought that needs to be turned into something positive and put aside. Retrain your brain to understand and accept. There are many natural cures for anxiety and there are many many great methods out there to choose from to help you accomplish your goal to getting rid of anxiety.
