Menopause Natural Relief – Anxiety
One of the most common symptoms that many women will suffer from during menopause is anxiety. It can take a variety of different forms…from anxiety attacks/panic attacks, nervousness, an unnatural fear of something or suffering anxiety which has combined with being depressed also. There are natural menopause anxiety relief methods that a woman may wish to consider using rather than using traditional medical treatments.
A lot of the natural treatments available for treating anxiety during menopause are able to target both the physical (hormonal imbalance) as well as the psychological causes. Certainly using the natural approach helps to provide your body with the support that it needs while also helping to reduce the amount of demand that you are actually placing on it.
As many women have found, menopause anxiety is one of the worst symptoms that they can suffer from and using herbal remedies is an effective way of controlling it. However, before starting any course of treatment a woman must understand how important it is to follow the instructions that they have been given to the letter. Remember that any kind of herbal treatment will be ineffective if you continue to follow the kind of lifestyle that you were leading prior to starting menopause. If you smoke, stop and if you drink alcohol and eat fatty foods regularyly you will actually either need to restrict the amounts you intake or cut them out of your diet altogether.
Another natural way of helping to relieve anxiety during menopause is to use a breathing exercise. In this type of exercise you will need to learn how to breathe deeply and slowly. You will need to practice this technique for about 15 minutes twice each day (once in the morning and then again in the evening). You will need to breathe as slowly and deeply as possible so that you are able to bring as much air into both your lungs and belly as possible. Using this natural menopause anxiety relief technique will help to induce a state of peace within you will then help to reduce the levels of anxiety that you are feeling.
As well as using breathing exercises there are other ways in which you relieve menopause anxiety through natural methods. You can increase or start some form of exercise regime, you can use herbal remedies that will help to control the symptoms such as valerian, ginseng or chamomile. Natural remedies do work, and can be an effective alternative to prescription drugs.
