Anxiety affects millions of people throughout the world, and if you're suffering anxiety, I hope you find this video useful because it's our alternatives to medications. Anxiety is a constant state of worry where you can't relax, you're always on alert, always thinking so many negative is gonna happen, and that negative thinking is controlling you and controlling your behaviour.
The problem of Benzodiazepines is they come with many unwanted side effects such as suicidal ideation, decreased alertness and drowsiness, sexual dysfunction, and dependence. Benzodiazepines are only supposed to be subscribed for four weeks. Many doctors allow their patients to go on months or allowing repeat prescription for months on end, even years. People become dependent on them, and sometimes they end up on other drugs at the same time to deal with the side effects of the Benzodiazepines. Many people are now turning to alternatives such as herbal medicine and natural treatments for the treatment of anxiety as the evidence base increases, and as people get tired of the Benzodiazepines, their ineffectiveness, or their unwanted side effects.
The first herb was passion flower, and passion flower was found in the evidence to be as effective as Benzodiazepines in the treatment of anxiety. I have a video in my channel if you want to check it out on passion flower where I went more depth on the power of passion flower in the treatment of anxiety.
Number two is kava. Kava is a drink that's prepared from the plant, piper methysticum. It's used in many cultures because it's known for its effectiveness in reducing restlessness, anxiety, and nervous tension.
Third one, they found evidence for Saint John's wort. Saint John's wort has been widely studied. Saint John's wort has been used as a medicine for centuries because of its known effect on nervous conditions such as stress, anxiety, insomnia, and nervousness. In Germany, it's widely used and prescribed by doctors. It's licenced for the use of anxiety, depression, and insomnia. Caution on Saint John's wort as it does interfere with other med so if you are on any medications, always consult with your doctor.
Number four is lysine. It's an amino acid that influences the neurotransmitters involved in regulating stress and anxiety.
And number five is magnesium. Magnesium is a positively charged ion that is involved in many of the molecular functions that influence the body's response to stress and anxiety so if you are low on magnesium, it's possible that by increasing your intake of magnesium through natural foods, you might also have tackled your anxiety.
If you taking medications consult with a medical doctor. If you want to take a course of herbs I recommend you talk to a herbalist. If you want more information contact me by email.
