Anxiety is extremely common; everyone gets it once in a while. One can be anxious about work, their personal life or an event that hasn’t even occurred yet. When you experience anxiety it affects your entire being, mentally and physically, and can often produce a whole range of symptoms, from rapid heartbeat, muscle tension, queasiness, to dry mouth or sweating. Most of the time anxiety is treated using prescription medication, which can have many different side effects. Prescription medicine is not right for everybody and can sometimes make the person’s anxiety worse or can take away his or her personality. Homeopathy offers a holistic approach to treating anxiety and involves identifying the root of the problem. At Homeopathy For Better Health, we narrowed down our top three remedies to help treat anxiety.
Arsenicum album- This remedy helps with more severe cases of anxiety including fear of death, thoughts of suicide and feelings of sadness and hopelessness. This patient also feels heightened anxiety when he or she is left alone and may also feel as if they are too weak to move. Considered one of the fifteen most important remedies in homeopathy, Arsenicum album is used quite often to treat anxiety among other ailments including digestive issues.
Aconite is one of the most important homeopathic remedies for anxiety treatment. It is very effective when anxiety comes on very suddenly, out of nowhere, and for no particular reason. The key to this remedy is treating the patient quickly since their symtoms come on so unexpectedly. Patients have also complained about feeling great fear and restlessness.
Argentum Nitricum – a nitrate of silver – This is a great remedy for chronic anxiety disorders. These people are constantly in a state of worry. They also can suffer from palpitations, trembling, and cramping pain in the abdomen. Argentum nitricum patients are often full of fears and tend to act irrational and on impulse.
