5 Natural Strategies to Tame Anxiety and How Naturopathy Can Help You Find Peace

Posted by Sarah Drysdale on

Here at Sabia Wellness, we understand that anxiety is a common issue that can significantly impact your quality of life. While anxiety can sometimes feel overwhelming, there are many effective coping mechanisms and natural approaches you can take to manage your symptoms and feel calmer and more in control.

5 Coping Strategies for Anxiety

    1. Deep Breathing Exercises: When anxiety strikes, take a few slow, deep breaths from your diaphragm. This can help to slow your heart rate and activate your body's relaxation response.
    2. Mindfulness and Meditation: Mindfulness practices like meditation can help you to focus on the present moment and let go of worries about the future or regrets about the past.
    3. Regular Exercise: Physical activity is a great way to reduce stress hormones and improve your mood. Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise most days of the week.
    4. Relaxation Techniques: Techniques like progressive muscle relaxation and yoga can help to release tension in your body and mind.
    5. Challenge Negative Thoughts: Anxiety often stems from negative thought patterns. Challenge these thoughts by asking yourself if they are realistic and helpful.

 

How Naturopathy Can Help Anxiety

Naturopathic medicine focuses on addressing the root cause of your anxiety and supporting your body's natural ability to heal itself. Here at Sabia Wellness, our experienced naturopaths may recommend a variety of approaches to help manage your anxiety, such as:

      • Herbal Medicine: Certain herbs, such as Ashwagandha and St John's Wort, have been shown to be effective in reducing anxiety symptoms.
      • Nutritional Therapy:  A naturopath can assess your individual needs and recommend dietary changes or supplements to address any nutritional deficiencies that may be contributing to your anxiety.
      • Stress Management Techniques:  Naturopaths can teach you relaxation techniques such as deep breathing and meditation to help you manage stress and anxiety.
      • Addressing Underlying Conditions:  Sometimes, anxiety can be a symptom of an underlying health condition, such as a thyroid disorder or hormonal imbalance. A naturopath can help to identify and address any underlying conditions that may be contributing to your anxiety.

      If you are struggling with anxiety, please know that you are not alone. At Sabia Wellness, we are here to support you on your journey to better health and well-being.
