ptsd-1024x682

Many people confuse the meaning of the word stress and anxiety and often use them interchangeably. Stress is usually caused by a particular event or situations in one life’s and makes them feel angry, frustrated, worried, or even anxious. The response to stress will differ from one person to another, and the same event can elicit disparate responses. Anxiety is the general feeling of apprehension or fear, the source cannot be clearly determined. Anxiety disorders are a group of conditions that causes excessive anxiety. People suffering from anxiety disorders have the symptoms on a regular basis and have a problem doing daily activities and relationships. Anxiety can also be caused by overdue stress that cannot be linked to a specific cause.

Homeopathy is a holistic treatment option that has been shown to be effective and safe. It addresses the underlying issue that causes the stress. This type of treatment is the best because it is unique to an individual and provides a treatment specifically for him/her.

It is very important to identify the factors causing the stress and the different reactions to the factors. This is important because when it comes to homeopathy, the symptoms are very important because they manifest when a person is exposed to external forces that are stronger than his/her immune system. This means that it is not enough to treat the symptoms because it will only act as a temporary palliative and doesn’t provide a lasting solution.
