Anxiety can be a debilitating occurrence and often comes on suddenly and without warning. Homeopathic anxiety treatments are designed to treat the whole person and can be helpful in preventing or treating these sudden attacks. Many times, a person will need to experiment with a variety of homeopathic anxiety treatment options in order to find a combination that works best on an individual level. Some popular homeopathic anxiety treatment methods include argentum nitricum, aconitum napellus, and calcarea carbonica.

Aconitum napellus may be a helpful homeopathic anxiety remedy, especially for those who who suffer from severe attacks of both anxiety and fear. In these instances, extreme fear of impending doom, or even death, may occur any time that a stressful situation occurs. These feelings may also occur when the person is beginning to develop a mild illness, such as the common cold.

Another common homeopathic anxiety treatment is the use of arsenicum album. Those who have frequent obsessive thoughts or who are extremely fearful concerning health matters may particularly benefit from this type of remedy. Asthma attacks and digestive problems are common ailments in those with this kind of anxiety.

Calcarea carbonica may be used as a homeopathic anxiety treatment for those who are normally high-functioning, dependable members of society who tend to become anxious and overwhelmed due to the stresses of life. Worry and fatigue can cause these people to fear a possible emotional breakdown. Claustrophobia and a fear of heights are common among those suffering from this type of anxiety.

Gelsemium is a type of homeopathic anxiety treatment typically used for those who become so paralyzed by fear that normal functioning is compromised. This paralyzing fear may occur when faced with a trip to a doctor or dentist or when faced with a public speaking engagement. These patients may become so fearful that they become convinced that the heart will actually stop beating. Headache, diarrhea, and chills may develop as a result of the severity of this type of anxiety.
