Is there a natural remedy for anxiety?
Ask the doctor
Q. I find myself getting more and more anxious, but I don't like to take medications. Is there an alternative natural treatment I can try instead?
A. Anxiety is an incredibly common problem. Although there are many FDA-approved medications that have been widely studied and proved effective, studies show that up to 43% of patients with anxiety use alternative medicine to treat it. Among alternative therapies, herbal treatments are widely used both for therapeutic purposes and for comfort.
