5 Natural Ways to Relieve Anxiety

Your anxiety, worry, and panic. You annoyed at a problem (choose one): money, health, work, family, love. Your heart beats faster, your breathing becomes short and fast, mind you imagine the negative things. You want to get rid of the anxiety but did not want to take chemical drugs.

There are many traditional ways to overcome anxiety, ranging from breathing techniques to tea. Some were able to relieve anxiety immediately, while others can help reduce anxiety from time to time.

chamomile tea
Some compounds in chamomile (Matricaria recutita) can bind to receptors in the brain in the same way as a sedative.

In addition to tea, you can also take supplements containing 1.2% active ingredient apigenin along with dried chamomile flowers.

In one study at the University of Pennsylvania Medical Center, Philadelphia, patients with anxiety disorders who take supplements chamomile for eight weeks experienced a significant decrease in anxiety symptoms compared to patients taking placebo.

L-theanine (green tea)
Japanese Buddhist monks can meditate for hours, either in a state of alert and relaxed mind. One reason, perhaps the amino acid in green tea called L-theanine, said Mark Blumenthal of the American Botanical Council.

You can get the benefits of L-theanine from green tea, but you should drink at least five cups a day.

Sports is not only good for physical but also for the brain. Plus, as an antidote to depression and anxiety are powerful.

"If you exercise regularly, you will have more confidence and feel better," said Drew Ramsey, MD, Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at the Hospital of New York-Presbyterian, Columbia University, who blogs at www.DrewRamseyMD. com.

Hold your breath!
Yoga breathing techniques have proven effective in reducing stress and anxiety. In his book Spontaneous Happiness, Andrew Weil, MD, introduces a classic yoga breathing technique he calls the 4-7-8 breath.

To perform 4-7-8 breath, try to exhale completely through your mouth and inhale through your nose for a count of four.

Hold your breath for a count of seven. Now, let it out slowly through your mouth to a count of eight. Repeat at least twice a day.

A walk in the woods
The Japanese call Shinrin-Yoku, which literally means "forest bathing". Japanese researchers measured changes in the body that runs for about 20 minutes in a beautiful forest, with a distinctive aroma of forest and flowing water.

Researchers found that people who walk in the woods had stress hormone levels were lower than those who walk around urban areas.

If you live in urban areas, where it is difficult for you to find the forest, try a visit to the jungle town or city park cool and lush.
