Anxiety is perfectly normal. It is a natural response of your body with regards to change in your life such as starting a new job or moving to somewhere new. It is a reaction to the unknown. It may be unpleasant but it can drive you to work harder or be used as motivation to be a better version of yourself. It also comes and goes and does not necessarily interfere with your day to day activities.
The problem of anxiety disorder occurs once the feeling of nervousness is so intense that it is debilitating to a person. The fear is constantly there and is strong enough to discourage the person from taking any action.
In extreme cases, this type of anxiety can lead you to stop enjoying the things you normally do. There is no more satisfaction in doing sports, hobbies, or any of the things you previously loved to do. For some people, they even stop being able to do mundane tasks such as crossing the street, riding the bus, or leaving their beds. If this is left untreated it can keep getting worse.
Homeopathy for anxiety can be very effective. However, you need to know what type of anxiety disorder you are experiencing.

Overall, different people can feel different things when experiencing anxiety. This is the advantage of using homeopathy for anxiety, because we deal with the person and not just the ailment. I’ll look at each case individually basing my findings.
One common underlying factor with anxiety disorder is the feeling of no control over what is happening around you or with your body. This can include consistent nightmares, painful thoughts and memories which keep creeping up, and a general feeling of worry without any real reason. This can also be the opposite of extreme fear of a specific place or situation.
Generally symptoms of anxiety include:
- Rapid breathing
- Significant increase in heart rate
- Difficulty concentrating
- Restlessness and difficulty sleeping
Symptoms of anxiety are signs that you may have the disorder. An anxiety attack is the debilitating effect of having anxiety disorder. This is when the fear or worry becomes so overwhelming. For some people, the attack can build up slowly. For others it can come in one fell swoop.
The attack is commonly associated with sweating, chills or hot flashes, shortness of breath, distress, and numbness.
