Anxiety Management


Recent studies suggest that about half of the people who suffer from anxiety and depression use some kind of holistic therapy to help with their symptoms. Part of the reason people might be attracted to integrative care for depression or anxiety is the holistic perspective found in most integrative approaches. This perspective takes into account the complex nature of depressive and anxiety disorders and the numerous reasons why people experience them.
There is no one molecule, part of the brain, or gene problem that is “the cause” of anxiety. It is probably best to think of anxiety as a set of symptoms that can have many different causes. Generalized anxiety, panic attacks, social anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and phobias are all unique. In truth, there may be different causes and symptoms for each person who has anxiety.
Dr. Sajjad believes in blending traditional medicine and its well-proven medications with the integrative approach of lifestyle changes, a strong support system, and an array of scientific studies pointing to the benefits of a number of supplements used to effectively calm the nerves and relax muscles during a bout of anxiety.
Dr. Sajjad recommends that these supplements always be used in conjunction with other reliable treatments for patients who have met the DSM-5 criteria for anxiety disorders, given that anxiety disorders develop from a vast array of complex factors, including genetics, brain chemistry, personality, and life events. “The best way to deal with anxiety is by working with a mental health professional,” she says. “Also try evidence-proven approaches such as meditation, exercise, and building a strong support network. In addition to taking supplements, your diet can help improve your anxiety responses.”
After a consultation with Dr. Sajjad, her patients walk away with a better understanding of how to best manage their anxiety and improve it over time for their unique situation.
