Anxiety is quite common with almost every person experiencing it to varying degrees throughout their life. In America, stress has become ingrained into our culture and daily life. In fact, over 18% of Americans have been diagnosed with this condition, which is over 42 million people. Some stress is normal, but when it becomes persistent, intense, and overwhelming, you should see a medical professional.
- Intense Stress
- Nervous Tension
- Avoiding provoking situations
- Increased Heart Rate
- Sleep Problems
- Brain Fog
- GI symptoms such as Diarrhea
The condition is usually multi-factorial, meaning many different things contribute to the condition and symptoms. Some of the common causes include:
- Too much Stress
- Lack of Deep Sleep
- Substance Abuse (Drugs, Alcohol, Caffeine)
- Medication Side Effects
- Trauma or Abuse
- Other Medical Conditions (Heart Disease, Diabetes, Hyperthyroidism, Pain, Respiratory Diseases, PTSD)
Patients are typically evaluated for anxiety by primary care, family medicine doctors, or Psychiatrists. The diagnosis can be made in office through a detailed case history and by following guidelines outlined in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. It is important to rule out other health conditions before making the diagnosis, as anxiety is a symptom in many other conditions. It is also important to conduct a medication review of the patient to make sure the anxiety is not a side effect of another drug. Once the diagnosis is made, conventional treatments are initiated. The two main treatment options presented are medications and psychotherapy. Unfortunately, psychotherapy is often bypassed in favor of medications such as antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications. These typically include SSRI’s (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) and benzodiazepines. The effects of these medications vary depending on the individual. Some patients respond favorably, while others receive no benefit or intolerable side effects.
Naturopathic Anxiety Relief
Naturopathic Medical Doctors take a broad comprehensive approach that often varies from conventional medication based treatments. Our Doctors first rule out all other conditions before diagnosing and treating anxiety. This is often done through comprehensive diagnostic testing that includes basic blood work such as a complete blood count, comprehensive metabolic panel, and hormone panels. Naturopathic Doctors also run specialty lab-work that includes genetic testing, vitamin testing, and micronutrient testing. This approach combined with a detailed case history leaves no stone unturned and gets to the root cause of why a patient has the condition to begin with. After a comprehensive evaluation is completed, a personalized treatment plan will be created. Typical treatments include supplements, amino acids, nutritional changes, exercise and at home stress reduction techniques.
