Anxiety Disorders: Natural and Herbal Anxiety Remedies

Posted on: May 7th, 2011 by Rakesh Sethi 10 Comments

For natural herbal anxiety remedies to be effective, you must commit to changing your diet and life style. This particularly includes changing eating and living behaviors to remove mental and physical causes that increase your anxiety as discussed in the previous article.

The physical causes must be removed prior to beginning natural and herbal remedies for anxiety. In addition, the mental causes must be addressed with the physical treatment.  Along with seeing a psychologist, you can significantly benefit by joining a local self help or support group and receive help by listening and sharing problems and achievements with each other.

Natural remedies for anxiety include the following suggestions:

Diet Modification:

  • Always eat warm cooked food with a table spoon of olive oil (per day)
  • No ice or ice cold drinks
  • Eat 2-3 ounces of mixed nuts per day. Almonds should be soaked overnight in water, peeled and taken in the morning

Life Style Modification:

  • Organize your day- make a list of things to do and stick to them (have ONLY reasonable #s on to do list)
  • Perform oil massage 2 -3 times per week with Ayurvedic Massage Oil. Leave oil on for 20-30 minutes before taking shower
  • Aerobics or fast paced exercise NO MORE than 2-3 times per week
  • Include meditation and yoga exercises in your daily morning routine (20-30 minutes be fine

    Hi.. Hope you could make a written review of USANA Nutritional Food Supplements. I’m using them right now, i juz want to know if they’re good as your products. Big Tnx! 🙂

    Hi Rakesh,

    Thank you for your wonderful articles! I noticed that you recommend that one takes the herbs mentioned above with milk. I was wondering what your stance is on milk. As a holistic nutritionist, we are taught that milk is ‘bad’, more specifically, it is mucous forming and many don’t have the enzymes to digest. Do you agree? Or do you think that anti-dairy or is this overhyped? Thank you for your time.

    • Rakesh Sethi says:

      Victoria: For most people milk is fine. However, if you have “Kapha” constitution of “Kapha” aggravation, you want to avoid milk. Check out other articles to find your body constitution. In the case of anxiety, milk becomes excellent source of giving heaviness and grounding effect. Our culture is riddled with misinformation on which diet and foods to take and that inadvertently contributes to our anxiety. Hope this helps. Be Well! Rakesh

    Hi Rakesh

    Glad to land a article on anxiety. I had anxiety a severe one for a couple of months I have recovered. I am a veggie so can you suggest anthing else for Vitamin B12. Thank u for the article

    • Rakesh Sethi says:

      Vitamin B12 is necessary for healthy nervous system. Your best choice is to take supplements as there are not very reliable information on vegges and B12. You can include seaweeds, soy products, and breakfast cereals fortified with B12.

    An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto a coworker who had been conducting a little homework
    on this. And he in fact bought me breakfast because I stumbled upon it for him.
    .. lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thanks for the meal!

  6. Barbara says:

    So glad I found this website! Very good information.
    I am a caregiver for my Quadraplegic son and husband Roth Parkinsons. I was very sick last year and after numerous tests found out I have chronic gastritis. I eat well , no fast foods, and almost 80% vegeterian. Some chicken and fish.. no read meat . I reach Reiki and practiced meditation .
    I feel I have a B12 deficiency .. How is the best diagnosed and can one get injections ?
    Thank you so much for sharing your gift .. All your information is much appreciated ,

    • Rakesh Sethi says:

      Barbara, please refer to the article on gastritis. First change your diet to include foods as mentioned in the article. Once your digestion is in balance you will absorb vitamins/nutrients from the foods you eat and NOT have to take any injections. Multi-vitamin tablet per day should do just fine. Please get your digestion in order.
