Anxiety is an unpleasant state of mind, often accompanied by nervous behaviour. It is the subjectively unpleasant feeling of fear, worry and uneasiness over anticipated events. While fear itself is a response to a real or perceived immediate threat, anxiety is the expectation of future threat. Anxiety is a normal human emotion that everyone experiences at times. Many people feel anxious, or nervous, when faced with a problem. However it is a serious mental illness. For people with anxiety disorder, worry and fear are constant and overwhelming. It interferes with a person's ability to lead a normal life and can be crippling. Therefore we need to be aware of the condition and its natural solution. There are several recognized types of anxiety disorder, including panic, social anxiety, phobias and generalized anxiety disorder. Symptoms vary depending on the type of anxiety, but general symptoms include: feelings of panic, fear and uneasiness, sleeping trouble, cold or sweaty hands and/or feet, shortness of breath, palpitation, restlessness, dry mouth, numbness or tingling in the hands or feet, nausea, muscle tension and dizziness. Anxiety can also be a symptom of underlying health problems such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, Heart failure or Arrhythmia.
Anxiety may be caused by a combination of factors involving the functioning of the brain circuits that regulate fear and other emotions. Severe or long-lasting stress can change the way nerve cells within these circuits transmit information from one region of the brain to another. Anxiety runs in families, so they can also be inherited from one or both parents. Moreover, certain environmental factors – such as a trauma or significant event, a troubled childhood and a stressful family life – may trigger anxiety disorder in people who have an inherited susceptibility to developing the disorder.
Nowadays, all treatments merely target the symptoms, without addressing the root cause of the problem. These medicines have adverse reactions too. However, effective and positive results have been achieved through Fundamentals of Ayurveda, Unani and Therapeutic Yoga which is completely safe and natural. 'Naturoveda Health World' successfully employs a unique combination of these three systems to provide effective and long-lasting results without any side effect.
