Natural anxiety relief can be found in several different ways. The term "natural" is usually used when referring to relief from anxiety, to describe a method other than prescribed medication use. Though prescription medication can be helpful in finding an overall cure for anxiety and panic disorder, often people look for self-help methods to find relief from anxiety before they have to embark on a more complicated plan which may interfere with their everyday activities.

Because of this, there have been many methods tried in order to prevent the necessity of medication. Many people have tried herbs and some have found a modicum of relief from anxiety by using them.

However, be careful when using herbs because they too, like prescription medications, can have side effects. They can interfere and react negatively when used with certain prescription medications. They can also have adverse side effects when used with over-the-counter medications.

Beyond that, taking too many of them can also have adverse side effects. Anyone looking to avoid the effects brought on by prescription medication will also probably want to avoid using herbs when seeking relief from anxiety.

One self-help method many people have found relief by using is progressive relaxation. Progressive relaxation or any relaxation technique for that matter can be very helpful when applied as part of a daily routine. By using relaxation techniques a person brings him or herself into a very relaxed state. Then, when facing a high level of stress, here she can recall the feelings of this extreme relaxation. This can be very beneficial.

Some relief from anxiety comes when real one realizes many millions more people throughout the world are suffering from the same feelings anxiety attacks are bringing on him or her. Anxiety sufferers are not alone, that is for sure. It is also beneficial to realize many, many people have been cured from anxiety/panic disorder and a cure is certainly possible without the use of prescription medications or drugs.

One of the main keys to overcoming anxiety is to be able to face up to the feelings anxiety brings on. Realize they are temporary and not truly medically significant. Of course, any feelings one has such as chest pains or lightheadedness, should be brought to the attention of a medical professional. However, if the doctor has concluded these feelings are due to anxiety, the patient should realize, the next time anxiety strikes, that these feelings are simply nerves and not truly a medical calamity.
