Avatar f tn Hi I think that natrural remedies are the best way to go. I suffer from anxiety and have taken alternative meds in the past which have helped me. It took a while for them to start working but they worked and I felt great. The only side effect of natural remedies is that you dont put any chemicals in your body! lol. The meds I took were from my alternative med doctor, not from a vitamin store.
Avatar n tn is there anything for bipolar, anxiety and female low libido that is not a prescription...perhaps an herb or a supplement?
Avatar n tn I've been suffering with Anxiety since March when I had my big first attack. It came out of nowhere and my co-workers thought that I was having a stroke or heart attack. After trying to figure out why I was getting tingling in my body, and incredible tension in my back and neck (along with some panic symptoms), I had to come to the realization that I've got some form of anxiety that's taken over my body. Frankly, it stinks because I've never had stress take over my body like this.
Avatar n tn I strongly advise doing in-depth research first, finding an alternative medicine practitioner to supervise your progress, and THEN start on an alternative treatment if that's what your instincts tell you to do. I'm not trying to discourage you. Just starting an alternative treatment could be potentially harmful if you don't know what you're doing. Those 3 steps are exactly what I did before starting my alternative treatment to try to shrink my nodules nearly 3 months ago.
Avatar n tn I've suffered from depression and anxiety for a number of years. Within the last year, I've noticed an increased feeling of fear and dread. I wondered I was bipolar, and the mania stage manifested itself by this feeling of terror I couldn't shake. Well, I was about to consult with my doctor about my increasing panic, and as luck would have it, I picked up some poison ivy. My doctor prescribed a course of steroids, and the second day into it - no more fear. No more terror. No more panic.
Avatar n tn Finally, I know of NO other alternative treatment that I would be comfortable with. Truly, if your sides aren't too bad, this is a very "do-able" treatment protocol. Certainly, you may have some sides, but then again, they may be minimal and you can carry on and get the whole thing over with. It's a decision only you can make.
Avatar m tn What were your during and after treatment lab readings? 5. Were you at the same time using other treatment(s)? Thank you.
630309 tn?1222449859 BuSpar is used in the treatment of anxiety disorders and and for short-term relief of the symptoms of anxiety, such as fear, tension, irritability, dizziness, pounding heartbeat, and other physical symptoms. As your doctor stated most of the side effects should dissipate over the next few days. There is a long list of anti-anxiety medication, but for some reason your doctor chose this one.
225237 tn?1333142599 I really wonder if alternative meds could be a way to go. Many doctors say the anxiety/panic are in your head according to them. Well, alternative medicine acknowledges these problems. That in itself says something to me. I had cold laser treatment to help stop smoking. They did part of a treatment for relaxation to keep me calm and not jittery during nicotine withdrawal. I came home and slept 16 hours straight!! I would even check out acupuncture.
11927223 tn?1422181910 Although in many, medication becomes part of a necessary treatment for severe anxiety. Talk to your doctor about alternative treatments like breathing exercises and stress relieving group classes. There is help if you seek it out, like coming to this community. Keep posting and others will soon join you with some other ideas. Maybe you can give us some more of your background. Well eric I wish you the best.
Avatar m tn So, dont worry about it, but get it checked just in-case for ease of mind and so you can take the next steps to treat it if it is anxiety. Anyway, excersize is proven to help anxiety. So is healthy eating. Chamomile tea helps ease anxiety, meditation, deep breathing (like, close your eye and lay down, breathe in slowly as much air as you can, hold it for like 3 seconds, then slowly let it all that 3 times or more...whatever you want). Those are just a couple techniques...
449946 tn?1205493932 I was told my two doctors that I am suffering from Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD) and I would like to know what the symptoms are.
Avatar f tn But you feel the come down as well. To me it would depend on how bad you anxiety was. If it was 24/7 anxiety I would more inclined to go for klonopin. Dosed out twice a day. To cover the whole day. As it can be used for a lot longer. Talking years wise. I know they are all the same come the end of the day. Once on them for a long period of time we can't just stop taken them. But just another opinion. I would also agree with the theraphy suggestion. Big time.
Avatar f tn I'm a traditionalist when it comes to treatment for depression and anxiety. I have seen great results. But it's so individual. And that factor makes things difficult to say what affect someone will have. There are SNRI's if SSRI's aren't working well for you. I personally find many holistic medicine and alternative medicine doctors to be full of hope based on nothing. Talk about not having science to back up your practice!
2111850 tn?1334369185 Yeah it can be very embarrassing, have you talked to your boss and explained your situation? If not I strongly suggest you do, if they know what's going on they can be fantastic and make work a whole lot easier :) Yeah, not meant to have anything with caffeine in it, no deep fried foods etc.
Avatar f tn There are numerous medications out there and many types of treatment that you can pursue. For many of us anxiety disorder is a significant disability that impairs or lives in many ways. We have to live with side effects and inconveniences as does every other disabled person, like it or not.
Avatar f tn When I hit teenage years I was very depressed, but slowly i've noticed it became more anxiety. I have met someone in which I see a lot of good with, but I also have the things that I find to bother me. I am so protective, and cannot deal with certain people. My boyfriend has a lot of friends and I am not one to hangout with a lot of people, I am an infp type.
370181 tn?1428180348 Anyone who comes to the Anxiety Forum looking for natural and/or alternative therapies will be redirected to these forums. The Anxiety Forum is essentially for people who have chosen a more traditional approach to healing through the use of pharmaceuticals. We must all remember that there is no "one right way.
1132574 tn?1271676066 Hello Everyone- Just wondering if any of you out there have tried or read about employing accupuncture and/or other alternative therapies while in treatment for lyme disease. I've also considered chiropractic care. All of this would obviously be in concert with antibiotic use. I would never rely soley on alternative methods to fight this crazy disease. Just wondering what you all think/have experienced/have read.
Avatar n tn They offer them right at the hair institute in town. Even that type of alternative treatment is helpful as far as I am concerned. Sometimes, pills have so many side effects that they alone can make you sick. I believe there is a need for both and I wish all doctors were trained in both areas. I am afraid that the medicine I am on or have put on hiatus has caused some damage. I have no way of knowing, and I am not sure how to get checked for this .
199177 tn?1490502134 Alternative and Holistic Treatment Options Many alternative and holistic treatment options have resulted in successful outcomes for many individuals recovering from substance abuse and addiction. Most holistic approaches are designed to initially accompany conventional, professional treatment programs. Beyond the initial stages of recovery, and for maintaining an ongoing drug-free lifestyle, holistic and alternative approaches have shown to be quite helpful to many individuals.
Avatar n tn I have not had arthritis, but I've heard raw apple cider vinegar being a good alternative treatment. Anxiety, now, I have struggled with that but have handled it naturally as well. Kay
541657 tn?1239212530 Hi all, Some of you may know that I am interested in alternative and immune system supportive therapies for ovarian cancer. Yesterday I had a very interesting conversation with a doctor from the Oasis of Hope clinic in Mexico. They use extensive immune support therapies along with chemo to treat ovarian cancer. Some of these include vitamin C therapy, oxygen therapy, possibly hydrogen peroxide therapy along with a vegan diet, psychological support, etc to heal the 'whole' patient.
Avatar f tn I was on lexapro a couple of years ago and the same thing happened about a year into the treatment. I weaned off and was anxiety free for about a year and a half. I began having symptoms again a few months after having a very serious car accident where I sustained multiple injuries. Although I tried all sorts of alternative treatment I had to get back on the lexapro after having severe panic attacks, heart racing and elevated blood pressure.
