Natural Treatments for Anxiety

Find out why natural therapy may be more effective in treating anxiety

Everybody suffers from anxiety from time to time. However, for many people, anxiety becomes excessive and uncontrollable. In extreme cases, anxiety becomes panic attack, which often send people to emergency rooms. There are current no satisfactory treatment for anxiety from conventional medicine. The reason for such under-treatment, in my view, is caused by misunderstanding of the disease.

The medical establishment currently perceives Generalized Anxiety Disorder as a psychological disorder. Patients are often treated with psychotherapy and/or psychotropic drugs. The underlying assumption is that the patient’s anxiety is purely emotional. Psychotherapy aims to resolve the emotional cause while psychotropic drugs try to chemically inhibit anxiety from happening in the brain. However, in reality, anxiety disorder usually accompanies other symptoms. Common symptoms associated with anxiety are:

  • Insomnia
  • Palpitation
  • Difficulty Breathing
  • Nausea or abdominal distress
  • Muscle tension and aches
  • Irritability
  • and many many more

Current medical understanding assumes that these symptoms are results of anxiety. It ignores the possibility that anxiety may simply be a part of the disorder. By not seeing the big picture, medical establishment fail to treat anxiety in a comprehensive way. Psychotherapy is long and expensive. Drugs are full of side-effects. And both are not very effective.

Traditional Chinese Medicine utilizes a more holistic perspective to understand diseases. It group symptoms into “patterns”. This way allows practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine to connect the symptoms together. So anxiety and its accompanied physical symptoms can be parts of a pattern. It allows us to customize a treatment plan that is tailored to you. Not only is Traditional Chinese Medicine a proven medical system practiced in Asia for thousands of years, the best part is all treatments are all natural, with very little danger or side-effects.
