Anxiety & Other Mental Issues
Anxiety can present itself in a variety of ways. It can be a slow, silent burn that you do not even realize is affecting you until it manifests in unexpected ways or it can takeover your daily life as it continually presses down on you like a lead weight. Either way anxiety disorders account for being the common mental illness in the Australia.
It can be attributed to a long list of causes and reactions which are treated in only about one third of those who suffer making many believe that the above number of those afflicted could be much higher.
Here is a list of common anxiety disorders we routinely treat at our clinic :
- GAD (General Anxiety Disorder)
- OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder)
- Panic Disorder
- PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)
- Social Anxiety Disorder
- Major Depression
Conventional medicine has been band-aiding anxiety disorders for centuries. This approach consists of quelling symptoms and suppressing deep rooted feelings that could be directly related to anxiety with a long list of pharmaceutical cocktails. Whether an antidepressant, anti-anxiety or sleeping pill many Australians seem to be numbed by many of these while struggling with a laundry list of potential side effects. These include dry mouth, nausea, headache, low libido, digestive difficulties, kidney and liver challenges to name a few.
Natural Herbal medicine approaches anxiety disorders from a variety of angles that attempt to tap into the body’s deep healing capabilities. An Ayurvedic doctor will assess the full spectrum of presentations rather than only target symptoms. This entails a detailed search for obvious to subtle ‘clues’ such as:
- Emotional state
- Skin color
- Tongue color
- Eye color/markings
- Various pulse point responses
- Bowel evacuation history
These ‘clues’ enable an Ayurvedic doctor to determine the proper remedy protocol for each specific affliction including anxiety disorders. Using a variety of therapies to relieve or even reverse such psychological challenges offers the body a chance to tap into a wide array of healing mechanisms rather than be ‘tricked’ or ‘manipulated’ into tamping down symptoms. So at Life Line Herbal Clinic, whether it is Herbal medicine, Panchakarma Detox Therapy or Yoga may be the option you or a loved one could benefit from if struggling with an anxiety disorder.
