Best Anxiety Treatments

The best anxiety treatments are the ones that work for YOU. There are some that are generally better, but again, each person is different. It's important to realize this, otherwise you may feel upset.

Try not to be, though. A generally effective treatment may work for 99 out of 100 people. You may be that 100th person. Don't fret. There's always something that will work for you. It's frustrating to find it, but you will.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

This has generally been found to be the best treatment for anxiety. It's been used effectively for countless people.

CBT helps to change both your thoughts and actions. This is a great way to treat anxiety, especially in the long run. Your doctor may also suggest taking medication to get the full benefit in helping you recover.

There are so many drugs that are used to treat anxiety. Generally, antidepressants and/or benzodiazepines are prescribed. If it doesn't work or has bad side effects, tell your doctor so that you can try something else.

It's also a good idea to keep your own personal record of what works and what doesn't. This way, if you change doctors or treatment, you know what you've tried or what didn't work.

Alternative Therapies

There are many people who don't like using drugs. Drugs can produce nasty side effects and may not be good for you in the long run, so this is understandable.

Many of these people have used other forms of treatment successfully. Again, sometimes something might not work for you. Be patient, (it's hard, but do try!) and you'll find one that you're happy with.

Here are some options that might be worth your while exploring:

- hypnosis

- meditation

- herbal remedies

- vitamin supplements

- abdominal breathing

There are other options as well. PureCalm for Anxiety & Panic Attacks is a natural product that seems to work for many.

It's difficult to say which are the best anxiety treatments, but there are definitely many that will work. If it doesn't, you'll need to find something that does. It's frustrating because you have to wait.

The most important thing to remember is to keep your chin up. Don't take it personally or feel there is no hope. There is hope. Always. Please be patient and you'll start feeling better.
