How to Get Rid of Anxiety
Anxiety is the feeling of heightened arousal or worry that occurs when there is no obvious threat or in response to a disproportionately trivial stimulus. It consists of both an emotional and a physical imbalance, and tends to be provoked by overwork, stress, fear, or insecurity. It is sometimes accompanied by an increased pulse rate, clammy skin, irregular sleep patterns, and appetite disturbance.
You should try to eat a healthy, whole food diet with plenty of fresh vegetables and fruits to combat the symptoms of anxiety. Eating more natural products helps to calm anxiety and lift the mood. In cases of anxiety, healthy eating really does make all the difference.
Foods to avoid:
Fried foods have less nutritional value and are also difficult to digest. You can’t reduce anxiety if the body cannot process the consumed food properly. Excess coffee is known as an anxiety stimulant and creates rapid heartbeats, leading to the possibility of panic attacks. Excessive consumption of dairy products may increase adrenaline levels and make you more anxious. Refined sugar, like the white sugar present in desserts, can exacerbate symptoms of anxiety. Pickles, eggs, yogurt, sour cream and wine are acid forming foods, which decrease the magnesium level. Low magnesium is a significant cause or contributor to the symptoms of anxiety. Avoiding all these foods won’t give you an instant cure, but it can help to reduce the symptoms.
Foods to add into your diet:
Magnesium rich foods like black beans and tofu should be included in your diet. Some evidence has shown that Omega-3 fatty acid is useful for treating depression and anxiety. Fish, flaxseed and winter squash are a good source for Omega-3. Tryptophan rich foods like soya, oats, poultry and sesame seeds contain a natural relaxation component.
Stress, anxiety and overstimulation can occasionally put severe strain on the body’s autonomic nervous system. Natural remedies activate the body’s own regulatory mechanism and help to stabilise the functions.
