Medications may be the first treatment to come to mind, but if your goal is to stop anxiety attacks, to cure your anxiety disorder, regardless of its form, medical technicians and therapists agree that is not the appropriate treatment. Many anxiety therapists practice various natural remedies for anxiety such as specific breathing exercises and muscle and relaxation exercises; herbal teas and relaxants such as lavender, chamomile and herbal teas; physical exercise; a good healthy diet with all the right nutrients that contribute to healthy functioning of the brain which in turn produces the right attitudes and moods; and plenty of water.

Do you recall that we stated that anxiety is psychological, meaning involving the mind? Actually, there are six psychological conditions that have been labeled anxiety disorders: (GAD) generalized anxiety disorder; (PDST) post traumatic stress disorder; panic disorder; specific phobias or irrationality; (SAD) social anxiety disorder; (OCD) obsessive compulsive disorder.

In addition to the above treatments for stopping anxiety attacks, there is the familiar psychiatric anxiety treatment known as CBT, cognitive behavior treatment. This focuses on discovering the source of the anxiety, and then continues to work on attitude change, and rearranging thought and behavior patterns and responses regarding the fear and anxiety.

Other treatments helpful to bringing about a balance to the individual’s anxiety responses are: Psychotherapy or Talk Therapy, focusing on rooting out from the past, the source and “triggers” of the anxiety; alternative treatments as they are introduced to the field of psychiatry and medicine such as hypnosis, yoga, specific breathing and exercise programs; and biofeedback.
