Managing Anxiety Naturally
Anxiety can feel different for everybody, and when it comes to managing your own anxiety using supplements and other natural methods, it may take some time before you find the right remedy or combination of remedies. It can take a few weeks or months before you notice any positive effects, so be kind to yourself and give yourself time and space to explore what might work for you.
Don’t be tempted to try all of the suggested anxiety supplements mentioned here in one go, as you may not be able to work out which one is benefiting you the most. Also, you may end up wasting time and money on certain supplements that aren’t working for you, and are being masked by others.
It may feel frustrating, but trial and error now really could benefit you in the future. Take a careful read through our list of supplements for managing anxiety, see which resonate with you the most and give them a go. If you’re already taking anxiety medications or medications for anything else, check with your GP or pharmacist before taking herbal anxiety supplements.
Equally, if you’re struggling with anxiety or it’s severely affecting your life, then it’s important to seek professional help. Your GP may be able to prescribe you anxiety medications or refer you for talking therapies such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). Know that you’re not alone, and help is available to you.
