While everyone experiences moments of anxiety, fear, or worry. Those emotions should not control your entire life or affect your ability function on a regular basis.
While psychotherapy and medication are the most common treatment forms for anxiety, they may not completely eradicate the problem. In fact, medication doesn’t really fix the problem at all—it simply covers up the extreme feelings and can often make individuals feel numb and unlike themselves. Medication also comes with a number of side effects that many do not want to risk experiencing. Psychotherapy can be extremely effective for those trying to work through some issues and getting past specific incidents that may trigger anxiety.
However, oftentimes there is something array in the physical body that exacerbates anxious thoughts and feelings. Without correcting this physical aspect, anxiety may never completely go away. The brain controls every function of the body, including emotional processing and physical responses to mental stimuli. It also controls hormone production. When hormones are off or unbalanced, you may experience sleep disturbances, mood swings, weight gain or loss, and more, all of which can contribute to anxiety.
NATURAL WAYS TO REDUCE ANXIETY
When the brain sends signals to other parts of the body to produce hormones, regulate emotions, or improve digestion, those signals travel down the spinal cord and through the nerves. If the spine is out of proper alignment in any way, those signals become interrupted. This lack of proper communication between the brain and the rest of the body can cause dysfunction which can lead to a number of ailments, including anxiety.
