Recently, I have been engaging in the study of numerous chinese herbal rememdies for help with my anxiety. I have noticed a HUGE change in the way I feel, so just thought I would share my results with the sufferers on this board.
Here are the different formula comibinations I have been using:
-Wen Dan Tang
-Chai Hu Long Gu Mu Li
-Jia Wei Xiao Yao
-Long Dan Xie Gan
-Tian Wang Bu Xin
If you need any help in regards to getting on the correct chinese formula, contact me, I'd be glad to help.
Each one of these remedies can be found online at http://www.acu-market.com/
IMO, chinese medicine has been the most successful treatment for me thus far. I have been on numerous anti-depressants in the past, aswell as taken a LOT of CBT sessions. TCM has brought my anxiety level down to a 1-2 from where I used to be at 9-10. I no longer react to situations as my former self used to, and no longer anticipate things. As far as social anxiety there is still some there, however I think this has more to do with personal struggles and demons from my past.
OVerall tho, I would say that I'm honestly 80-90% better. TCM also states that there is a high CURE rate among mental disorders, and I need to wait atleast 2-3 more months until I can say that I have been 'cured'.
On an ending note, I would urge each and every person here who struggles with anxiety to try out this route of treatment.
Good luck to all, keep me posted on your progess.
EDIT: 1 important thing I would like to add, just because western medicine has no cure for specific ailments, this doesnt mean that a cure does not lie elsewhere in the world. Chinese medicine has been used for thousands of years, and has a high success rate.
