Billions of dollars are spent yearly on the costs associated with depression and anxiety disorders. Anti-anxiety drugs were found to kill thousands of American every year. Researchers from the U.K. found that taking anti-anxiety medications like Valium (diazepam) and Xanax (alprazolam), or sleeping drugs like Ambien (zolpidem), are more than twice as likely as others to die as a result of the medications.
Did you know there are a number of essential oils that can help treat anxiety naturally? A University of Arizona researcher, Gary Schwartz, M.D., found that our sense of smell has a direct effect on the part of our brain that controls fear and anxiety. Aromatherapy has been used through the ages to deal with grief, sadness and anxiety. A systematic review of 16 randomized controlled trials studding the anxiolytic (anxiety-inhibiting) effects of aromatherapy among people with anxiety symptoms showed that most of the studies indicated positive effects to ease anxiety (and no adverse events were reported).
