COMPLEMENTARY AND ALTERNATIVE THERAPIES FOR ANXIETY DISORDERS
Everyone gets nervous or anxious from time to time—when speaking in public, for instance, or when going through financial difficulty. For some people, however, anxiety becomes so frequent, or so forceful, that it begins to take over their lives.
How can you tell if your everyday anxiety has crossed the line into a disorder? It's not easy. Anxiety comes in many different forms—such as panic attacks, phobia, and social anxiety—and the distinction between an official diagnosis and "normal" anxiety isn't always clear.
Psychologists have created categories for each of the different types of anxiety, and only by knowing what type of anxiety you're experiencing can you hope to find relief. The main types of anxiety disorders include the following:
Natural Remedies for Anxiety Disorders
- Anxiety Disorder
- Panic disorder
- Post-traumatic Stress Disorder
- Obsessive–compulsive disorder
There is an ever-growing body of scientific evidence linking complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) therapies to a reduction in the symptoms of a number of anxiety disorders. CAM therapies for anxiety are approaches to health care that exist outside conventional medicine practiced in the United States. Learn more about these natural remedies and how they help anxiety from this eBook.
