Natural Anxiety Remedies- Is There a Natural Anxiety Attacks Cure?

Updated on July 18, 2011

Does a Natural Anxiety Attacks Cure Exist?

Is there an anxiety attacks cure all without prescription medication? Prescription anxiety medicines have lots of side effects that some of us would like to avoid if possible. Of course, always consult with your doctor before starting any new natural anxiety remedies. And never stop taking prescription medication without consulting your doctor!

As far as an anxiety attacks cure, I have found no concrete proof of any anxiety natural cures that rid a person of anxiety forever with no recurrences. Anxiety and panic disorders are difficult to treat, even with prescriptions.

But the good news is that there are natural ways to treat anxiety that will help reduce symptoms, prolong the time between anxiety attacks, and lessen their severity. But none of the following are natural anxiety cures that will stop panic attacks completely.

Try them and see if any of these anxiety natural cures help you with your symptoms. While not necessarily anxiety cures, hopefully one of these natural anxiety remedies will help you to get by day to day with more calm and peace of mind.

Two Simple and Free Natural Anxiety Remedies

Exercise is one of the best natural remedies for anxiety and panic disorder. Regular, daily exercise helps the body deal naturally with stress, which in turn will help with anxiety and panic attacks. It doesn't have to be extremely strenuous exercise or cost a lot of money. A simple daily 30 minute walk will help deal with stress tremendously.

Whenever you feel yourself becoming anxious, concentrate on your breathing. Try not to hyperventilate. Concentrate on taking long, deep breaths. Breathe like a baby does, with your belly. Take deep breaths with your diaphragm, not your chest. Do this by focusing on making your stomach expand as you take a deep breath in. This results in much deeper breathing than breathing with your upper chest.

Focusing on deep breathing works at relieving anxiety in two ways- it takes attention away from the situation and thoughts that are making you anxious, and the deep breathing provides more oxygen so you feel more relaxed.

Some of the Best Anxiety Herbal Remedies

Lavender is well known to most people for its ability to help a person fall asleep more quickly and sleep deeper. But lavender is also one of the most recognized anxiety herbal remedies, relieving stress and anxiety naturally. Try keeping lavender essential oil in oil warmers close by on your desk while you work. Or candles that are scented with authentic lavender will help. Spray a mixture of lavender oil and water on your pillow before you go to sleep, or slip a lavender sachet into your pillowcase. There are lots of ways to incorporate calming lavender into your life for use as anxiety natural cures.

You can even keep a tiny vial of lavender oil nearby in a purse or pocket to always have handy. When you feel stressed or start getting those frantic thoughts, take a few deep breaths of lavender essential oil. Be sure to use authentic lavender essential oil, not fragrance oil or synthetic oils.

Kava, or kava kava, is well known for its ability to help calm a person. Kava can be very effective at helping with anxiety attacks. Cure or reduce potential stressful situations by taking kava before incidents that you know will cause anxiety. Be warned, however, that there have been cases of liver damage with people who consumed large amounts of kava. If you have any liver problems at all, don't try kava as a natural anxiety remedy.

St. John's Wort is a natural anxiety cure worth trying. It is a plant that has been effective at lessening anxiety and depression. Used extensively in Europe as one of the most popular anxiety herbal remedies and for the treatment of depression, St. John's Wort works in a similar way to many prescription anti-depressant drugs. It is readily available at most drug stores and is one of the most tested anxiety natural cures. Be sure to get a quality product.

Valerian is another of the best known natural anxiety remedies. It works as a mild sedative, very similar to Valium, but is not as potent. Like most other anxiety herbal remedies, Valerian isn't addictive like Valium can be to some people.

A Homeopathic Remedy for Anxiety

Some people swear by Dr. Bach's Rescue Remedy as one of the best natural anxiety remedies for panic and anxiety symptoms. This is a homeopathic natural anxiety remedy that is made with flower essences. Simply spray into your mouth whenever you start to feel anxious. Users say Rescue Remedy works almost instantly as a natural anxiety cure to help you feel more calm.

A Most Unusual Natural Remedy for Anxiety

This may sound like one of the weirdest natural anxiety remedies, but it is worth trying. It will cost you nothing and you can do it any time. This natural treatment has been used for hundreds of years in Asia for the natural treatment of many health conditions.

It is simply this: If possible, take a shower with no hot water at all. At first, you will feel like you are freezing. But your body will adjust and it will start to actually feel good.

What if you can't stand an entire shower in cold water? Then at the end of your shower, turn the hot water off and stand under the cold water for as long as you can tolerate it.

Dry off quickly and always go straight to a warm room after this cold shower treatment. Do not allow yourself to stay chilled after you get out of the shower. And if you have any health problems at all, especially heart problems, speak with your doctor before trying this natural anxiety cure and remedy for anxiety.
