How can holistic treatment support anxiety?
Overcoming anxiety in kids?
Anxiety in children can be supported by homeopathy, and it is never too early to begin treatment. Children respond quickly and wonderfully to homeopathy and this kind of support can help with their ongoing development and upcoming stages of growth.
Childhood anxiety can be observed in symptoms such as extreme nervousness, an inability to concentrate, poor performance at school, and physical symptoms such as nausea, heart palpitations, headaches, breathing problems and excessive sweating.
Common types of childhood anxiety disorders are obsessive-compulsive disorder, phobias, separation anxiety disorder, PTSD, panic disorder, social anxiety, generalized anxiety, PANDAS and PANS. The holistic homeopathic approach explores the mental and emotional states, the various symptoms, the experience and perceptions, the susceptibilities, medical and family history, and any other factors that arise during a session.
When these are explored in a case taking, this allows for a greater understanding of the underlying causes of anxiety experienced by each individual. It is important to note that a diagnosis is not required for homeopathic consultations.
What about adults and anxiety disorder?
Anxiety can involve a wide array of behavioural, mental and emotional symptoms. With anxiety there is sometimes a link to addictive behaviours such as smoking, alcoholism, drug abuse, and overeating. As well, depression can be linked to ongoing anxiety disorders and long term or chronic stress. A holistic approach using homeopathy can help in both mild and severe cases of anxiety and to discover the root issues that lead to these various symptoms.
What we know about Anxiety
Anxiety disorders are the most common type of mental health disorder. The definition of anxiety is a state of distressing, chronic yet fluctuating nervousness that is unusually extreme for the given circumstances and without an identifiable cause.
Research has shown that people with an anxiety disorder are more likely than other people to have depression.
Knowing when anxiety is severe enough to be considered a disorder can be difficult, especially with children. Each person's ability to tolerate anxiety can vary, and determining what constitutes normal anxiety as opposed to unhealthy anxiety can be difficult. The following criteria are often used as a guide for seeking treatment:
Anxiety and Stress
The words stress and anxiety are sometimes used interchangeably, yet in medical terms they have different meanings. Stress is from particular known situations or events in life that bring about feelings of frustration, angry or worry. So we can be stressed about our finances or about our relationship. Anxiety can develop if the stress is no longer linked to a specific cause or particular situation.
