Still, beyond the standard treatments there are many natural alternatives to help reduce anxiety that are easily available and have been shown to help for many years. One of these is that of Chamomile, which has certain chemicals in it that bind to the same receptors as anti-anxiety drugs such as Valium. It is available in tea form, which allows one to slowly sip and inhale the vapors reducing stress or as a supplement. Studies comparing patients taking chamomile supplements versus a placebo showed a marked reduced stress rate in those receiving the chamomile after eight weeks. Chamomile is known for causing drowsiness, which can be good at night, but may not be the best solution for day-time anxieties.
