              What The Experts Say About Natural Cures for Anxiety

There are a lot of different treatments available these days for anxiety. As one of the most
common mental disorders out there, and with our ever-increasing understanding of it, anxiety
is steadily becoming `the mental disease of the year'. This is both good news and bad if you
are looking for anxiety treatments. A host of medications are available to treat anxiety, but
they are not without side effects. Looking for some healthy and natural cures for anxiety is not
a bad place to start.

While anxiety is a `mental disorder', everyone suffers from some amount of it, just as with
depression. Some people, due to an imbalance of neurotransmitters, may suffer from undue
amounts of anxiety, and thus have an anxiety disorder. For everyone else, its just one of those
things you have to deal with now and then. If you do not have an anxiety disorder, taking
anxiety medications is an extreme response. There are a number of natural cures for anxiety
you should try first, all of which have worked great for me.

The best natural cures for anxiety are different exercises. Anything that gets your heart rate
going and boosts your metabolism will work wonders for reducing anxiety. Our brain chemistry
is `designed' with the assumption that we are going to be very active in our lives, as that is how
we have evolved. It is only recently that we have become largely inactive and sedentary, and
our brain chemistry hasn't caught up to this. Essentially, our bodies are still in `hunter and
gatherer' mode, and sitting all day at a desk can alone cause some imbalances.

Also, relaxation techniques are good natural cures for anxiety. Meditation, prayer, listening to
some calming music, setting aside time to read a good book, getting enough sleep at night,
and reducing caffeine intake will all help you to relax and therefore serve as safe, natural cures
for anxiety. This last point especially; caffeine and other stimulants alone can cause huge
amounts of anxiety for people. When I cut back and eventually quit caffeine I immediately
noticed an enormous reduction in my every day anxiety.

If you have attempted all of these natural cures for anxiety and still suffer from it frequently, it's
a good idea to talk to a doctor about it because you may have an anxiety disorder. While not
in itself serious, anxiety disorders can make life very difficult, and also increase your risk of
developing stress related health conditions, such as cancer and heart disease. Additionally,
many people develop harmful habits while trying to self-medicate for their anxiety.
