Everyone experiences anxiety. Some people are plagued with anxiety and suffer daily from the symptoms that come along with it. Anxiety is a feeling of worry and effects the body mentally and physically. For many people, these symptoms can be debilitating and hard to live with. When one gets to this point, they seek medical attention and are prescribed pharmaceutical drugs that block the symptoms so the anxiety can be easier to live with. However, the anxiety medication causes awful side effects sometimes worse than the anxiety itself. Medications become addictive while causing damage to the vital organs in your body like the liver and kidneys.
What is anxiety?
Anxiety is the "fight or flight" mechanism in your body. Our ancestors used their anxiety to keep them alive when they were hunting or being attacked. Adrenaline was pumped into their bloodstream, causing them to "fight or flight." Anxiety is necessary for us today as well. It acts as a warning signal. However, many of our stressors and anxieties are not reasonable to fight or run away from like our ancestors did. If we are worrying about paying a bill or losing a job, we might feel anxiety, but it is not a good idea to fight your boss or run away from the bill like our ancestors did when they were hunting for food. When the symptoms of anxiety are unbearable, it can cause a lot of damage on your body which can result in illness. Rather than taking the pharmaceutical approach to treating anxiety, there are natural ways to help relieve the symptoms of anxiety.
Natural ways to deal with anxiety:
1. Healthy Diet
3. Relaxation therapies
4. Move your body
The Earth holds all the medicines that we need to heal ourselves.

Natural Ways to Treat Anxiety
Fighting Depression Naturally
Depression effects over 21% of the world's population. We are finding more and more that pharmaceutical drugs are not working for many people mainly because the side effects are so intense. Anti-Depressants are one of the most money making pharmaceutical drugs out there. People get very dependent on them and then they experience side effects such as suicidal tendencies, sleep problems, digestive disorders, decreased sex drive, constant nausea, headaches, dry mouth and cold symptoms to name a few. It becomes a constant ugly cycle of misery and dependency to only find that the depressed person is only able to cope in life rather than to thrive. Nature gives us many herbs, plants and foods that can heal and help us without the harsh side effects. Turmeric is one of these amazing gifts from the Earth.
