Natural Remedies For Anxiety:
"Natural remedies for anxiety" are something folks want these days...
Thankfully, our collective civilization is awakening to the idea that prescription drugs do not hold all the answers. In today's world, there are more folks who are looking for natural remedies to depression, anxiety, autism, and a number of other mental health conditions. I have good news: it is quite possible! In fact, this is exactly the solution I took. As someone whose on the autism spectrum, I have had a host of mental health struggles over my lifetime. Starting about two years ago, I made a resolution to rid myself from mental health conditions using purely natural remedies. Instead of taking prescription medication that I knew would just make my conditions worse, I decided to take the natural route!
Natural remedies for anxiety were bountiful once I began looking. As a result, I have been able to dramatically reduce my anxiety. Before going down this road, I was constantly overwhelmed and feeling in a state of "fight or flight" at all times. There was even a period where I was suffering from panic attacks almost everyday before heading into work. As of this writing in January 2019, I have not suffered a panic attack in more than a year. Instead of controlling my life and my behavior, I have been able to overcome anxiety and cease the hold that it had over my life.
Overcoming anxiety does not have to be difficult... Even though anxiety disorders in 2019 seem to be more common than ever, rest assured that there is a wealth of knowledge available for how to cure anxiety once and for all. Let's dive in! Need help?

How To Cure Anxiety:
Is it possible to "cure" anxiety?
Honestly, I have found that it is more possible to understand that there are gifts in all discomforts. Anxiety is oftentimes the result of an over-active mind. For example, as someone on the autism spectrum, I am hyper-sensitive to the world around me. Whether it is sound, smell, touch, or the emotions of myself or others, I have found myself to be consistently hyper-sensitive and aware to the world around me... Before I got a handle on my anxiety, I was suffering. However, now that I have learned how to help anxiety, I understand that my anxiety disorder is the "shadow" aspect of a super-power: my hyper-sensitivity.
Here's what I'm trying to say: overcoming anxiety is very possible. However, it is most effective to learn how to channel that energy into something more positive... Anxiety is just energy... Energy cannot be destroyed... It can only change form.
The opposite emotion of anxiety is excitement.
In a sense, anxiety is excitement working against you! Instead of feeling happy and stoked for what is about to happen, we worry and stress over the unknown. This is happening both inside our minds but also physiologically... In fact, anxiety is happening inside of our bodies more than we know. Especially in the case of myself and other highly sensitive or empathic individuals, anxiety is happening almost entirely at the phzsyiological level.
Understanding that anxiety happens physiologically is crucial in learning how to turn that anxious energy into excitement for the future.
Let's get into the tactical tools that worked for me! I'm confident these will help you considerably. On this video, we talk about hydration, meditation, supplements that help with overcoming anxiety, mindset, counseling, and daily walks! There are plenty more ways to navigate through overcoming anxiety but these are the natural remedies for anxiety that worked wonders for me!
