There are many homeopathic remedies for anxiety. In fact there are many homeopathic remedies for every condition. But before you try to self prescribe, there are a few pointers you should know.
Anxiety, along with fear, is different for every person. And every animal, for that matter. We all see things differently, through our own particular experience, or lens, of life. Not only that, different things cause different levels of anxiety.
For the most part, anxiety is not logical. For example, if someone was bitten by a dog, their subsequent fear of dogs would be understandable. But many fear dogs when they have never encountered one. The same is true for spiders, heights, small spaces, etc.
It is mostly sensible to have a respect for poisonous spiders or other dangerous animals, but you don’t need to feel anxiety at the mention of them, or at the sight of them when you are safe. In fact, the anxiety will be felt by the animal, who will be more likely to defend itself from a potential attack, by being aggressive. So anxiety is not only illogical, it can put you in more danger.
There is little medicine or other disciples of health care can do for anxious people other than drug them so they don’t feel much. A flat or emotionless person is more like a zombie or robot, than a person experiencing life.
At the same time, deep anxiety can be crippling. As a famous Indian homeopath so delightfully asks, “what to do”?
The answer, of course, lies in the homeopathic remedies for anxiety. However, self prescribing for this may not be in your best interest. The root of the problem really needs to be discovered before a healing remedy can be prescribed.
Using homeopathy is completely different from medicine or many other disciplines of health care. It has similarities with the flower remedies, so if you appreciate how to use them, you are on the right tract. But homeopathy goes much deeper than even these wonderful remedies.
When a homeopath works with you to find a good prescription, we want to know more about you than just a single ailment, however crippling that may be. We want to “see through your eyes” to appreciate how you view your life. Only with this understanding can come the right prescription.
People often tell me “you know – how everyone reacts”. But everyone reacts differently. Yes, we may all run away from a charging lion. But, as long as we succeed, everyone will narrate a different story. Some will remain in terror, some will be exhilarated by the experience, some will be over it in a few days.
Some may develop high blood pressure and heart palpitations. Others may develop insomnia. Still others may never be happy unless they are taking further risks. And for others, nothing may develop.
So if you are searching for homeopathic remedies for anxiety, then go and see a professional homeopath you like and respect and work with them as long as it takes. It will take time to fully resolve, but results will occur along the way.
If you can’t do that immediately, then Rescue Remedy, that wonderful combination of Bach flower remedies, can help you manage in the mean time. Good as it is, it is unlikely to be as good as a personally and well selected homeopathic remedy for you.
The added bonus that comes with homeopathic treatment is that other areas of health are also likely to improve.
