The only thing worse than having anxiety is having anxiety about your anxiety. Don’t waste another minute stressing about finding a natural remedy that works for you. Here are six that are sure to help ease your troubled mind.

Cannabidiol

Cannabidiol, better known by the acronym CBD, is a naturally occurring compound found in cannabis. Don’t start quoting Cheech & Chong yet, because CBD won’t get you high. What it will do is effectively treat anxiety, nausea, insomnia, arthritis, and even seizures. With a wide variety of delivery methods from CBD tinctures and infused edibles to topical ointments and bath bombs, CBD is one of the most versatile anti-anxiety remedies around.

L-theanine

If “L-theanine” is too technical-sounding a name for your tastes, try one: green tea. And speaking of tastes, they don’t come tastier. But green tea’s pleasing flavour isn’t the only thing it offers to those looking for some stress-relief. The L-theanine found in green tea is known to lower heart rate and blood pressure, calm anxiety, and increase focus.

Kava root

Often referred to as a natural tranquilliser, kava root has been shown by researchers to be not only an excellent front-line treatment for generalised anxiety disorder but also one that doesn’t interfere with other forms of treatment. Kava root is also non-addictive and non-psychoactive, ensuring that its power to steady nerves remains untarnished by any serious side effects.

Magnesium

It’s not always a matter of external stressors; there are many physical issues that contribute to anxiety. One such issue is magnesium deficiency. With an estimated 75% of Americans not getting their recommended intake of magnesium, it’s no surprise that anxiety is such a common problem. Fortunately, taking magnesium supplements can help alleviate the condition, as well as combat insomnia, calm muscle spasms, and regulate digestion.

Chamomile

Like green tea, chamomile tea isn’t just a tasty beverage. It’s also packed with natural chemical compounds that aid stress relief. Studies show that compounds in chamomile react with brain receptors the same way as such drugs as Xanax and Valium. What’s more, if tea isn’t on your list of favourite drinks, chamomile can always be taken as a supplement capsule.

    Oh I’d never heard of Kava root, I’ll have to look into it. I already tried CBD and it helped a little!

    I’ve heard great things about all those alternative therapies. I think it is important to remember that anxiety can come from a physical health deficiency too.

      Thank you Georgina, I think we all need to be a little more aware of what triggers anxiety whether internal or external. 🙂

    I knew about chamomille but I never really heard the rest, definitely something to explore for myself.
