If you are currently on medication and wish to have a more effective, holistic way to treat anxiety; we can help. You can treat the underlying causes of panic attacks and anxiety, rather than just the symptoms, and say goodbye to drug-based treatments for anxiety.

Why are natural anxiety remedies likely to be more effective than traditional therapies alone?

Our approach combines the necessary elements of traditional treatment with the commonly overlooked aspects of natural healing, such as nutrition, vitamin, and mind-body treatments. These provide holistic support for the natural healing systems of the body, which help overcome and resist an array of both mental and physical health problems, including anxiety, stress and depression.

struggling with anxietyAre you or your loved one struggling with anxiety and unable to receive the help you need from traditional treatment methods? The unspoken assumption of most traditional approaches is that body and mind function separately. Each of the body’s organs is mainly on its own. However, recent science demonstrates that the opposite is true. Multiple systems of the body and mind interact and communicate with one another in a multifaceted holistic web of hormonal, metabolic, and biochemical relationships. Even distant organs such as the thyroid gland, immune system, brain, adrenal gland, liver, and gut interact, and in vital ways, function successfully as one. We can help you bring your body back to balance in safe, comfortable ways. Traditional anxiety help is not the only choice, you have other options.

Cognitive behavioral therapy ( CBT ) is one of the therapies we use in tandem with holistic treatment for anxiety. Research shows this kind of counseling to be successful in the treatment of social anxiety, panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, and phobias, as well as several other conditions. CBT addresses the negative patterns and distorted ways we look at ourselves and the world. As the name implies, this involves two primary factors: Cognitive therapy investigates how negative cognitions and thoughts contribute to anxiousness. Behavior therapy investigates how one behaves and reacts in anxiety-triggering situations.

Do you wish to live your life differently, in ways you know are possible? One of the basic ideas of cognitive behavioral treatment is that our thoughts, rather than just external events, affect how we feel. Put another way, it isn’t always the situation that governs how one feels; it’s their perception of the situation. As an example, visualize yourself being invited to a party. Think of three separate ways of perceiving the invitation, and how your thoughts would influence your emotions. Cognitive behavioral counseling effectively helps people be in control of their thoughts and emotions. Our goal is to teach you how to be your own mental health care expert.

What Are the Symptoms of Anxiety?

Anxiety is characterized by uneasiness, apprehension, fear or terror, panic, worry, dread, and/or uncertainty. Physical symptoms which often escort the feelings of anxiousness including insomnia, jitters, fear, shortness of breath, sweating, heart palpitations or rapid heart rate, decreased sex drive, diarrhea, chest pain, and/or nausea. Anxiety can turn into a larger health problem once the symptoms persist and become excessive, when symptoms interfere with regular activities of daily life, or cause emotional stress. You don’t have to suffer from the symptoms of anxiety any longer. Real help is available right now.

What Are the Causes of Anxiety?

The precise causes of panic and anxiety are often unknown. Anxiety may be triggered by extreme stress or traumatic events, such as an accident, a divorce, or death. Hereditary and physiologic factors can also contribute to anxiety. Certain drugs or substances, and withdrawal from such drugs, can lead to anxiety. Some of the most common triggers include asthma drugs, over the counter decongestants, caffeine (and withdrawal from caffeine), tobacco, alcohol, medications, and other substance including addictive narcotics. We also believe that there are better answers available besides taking prescription drugs for a lifetime and struggling with conditions like Valium withdrawal, so we work to discover the underlying causes of why you are having anxiety.

Holistic Anxiety Treatment and Non-drug Approaches

natural anxiety remediesIn complementary and alternative treatments to medication and psychotherapy, several different natural and traditional methods may be prescribed. Some of the main methods applied at our treatment center include:  dietary adjustments, vitamin and supplement therapy, sauna, detoxification, massage, acupuncture, exercise, group therapy, individual therapy, lab testing to understand the underlying causes, and natural substances to balance neurochemistry. Our professional team creates a tailored therapy plan for each client.

Eliminating alcohol and caffeine, decreasing your intake of refined carbohydrates, sugary food products, and foods with chemicals and additives has shown to improve anxiety symptoms. Vitamin B, magnesium, and calcium all contribute to the proper functioning and health of the central nervous system. They additionally support the creation of neurotransmitters, chemicals which help nerve cells communicate with each other. Because of this we provide complex nutrient therapies and teaches people how to properly feed their brains. You can correct the imbalances of your body and brain with scientifically proven methods.

Regular exercise and relaxing techniques and therapies such as yoga, meditation, and sauna are all non-drug anxiety remedies that can assist with relieving anxiousness. We encourage clients who are seeking holistic treatment for anxiety to include cardiovascular exercise in their regimen, which helps burn lactic acid, causes the body to utilize oxygen more effectively, and creates natural mood-improving chemicals called endorphins. A healthy brain is well fed and free of chemicals.
