Anxiety and depression are mental health conditions that affect millions of people every year in the United States and worldwide.
Feeling anxious about a significant event or experiencing a low mood when things aren’t going right for you is a normal part of human existence. However, if your feelings persist and become so intense they overwhelm you, chances are you’ve got clinical depression or an anxiety disorder.
Depression causes you to feel your life lacks meaning, that you are worthless and unable to connect to other people. You might experience feelings of self-loathing, a lack of energy, and a sense of hopelessness that’s impossible to shake. Unless you address the problem, depression can worsen to a point where you’re unable to function normally.
Anxiety disorders leave you in a permanently stressed state where everything causes excessive worry and fear. Provoked beyond their breaking point, people with anxiety can start having panic attacks that make them even more anxious about venturing away from home.
Conventional approaches to treating anxiety and depression involve using antidepressant medication, often in combination with talking therapies.
At Lifeguide Healthcare, Dr. Agbeyomi offers alternatives such as Chinese medicine and Ayurveda that use natural methods to help you overcome anxiety and depression.
