My Top Three Replacement for Xanax

I’ve learned about how addictive Xanax can be, and I guess you can say, it played a significant role in my search to find better alternatives to replace it.

Xanax, as most people may know, is used to treat anxiety and panic disorders. It works by enhancing the effects of certain natural chemicals in the body such as gamma-Aminobutyric acid (GABA).  However, there are some adverse side effects to taking Xanax. Some of these side effects include dizziness, change in sex drive, trouble breathing, severe allergic reaction, dyskinesia, loss of coordination, weight gain, weight loss, numbness, and tingling. I can go on, but if you like to learn more about the side effects of Xanax, please click here

I hope I didn’t scare you too much, but if I did, there are other natural alternatives to relieve anxiety and stress without having to go through all that trouble with Xanax. Some of these natural alternatives are lavender essential oil, ashwagandha, and valerian root. I am confident there are other natural supplements to take that can help alleviate stress and anxiety, but I have only tried three so far, and that’s why I’m writing about them. 

Lavender Oil

Lavender oil is known to have a soothing and relaxing scent to it which makes it an excellent tonic for stress and anxiety issues.  It can help increase cognitive functions, relieve muscle tensions and joint pains. Lavender has been used traditionally as a form of treatment for neurological issues such as stress, anxiety, depression and migraines. In 2013, evidenced-based research discovered that taking up to 80 milligrams of capsules of lavender essential oil helped relieve stress, decrease sleep abnormality, and depression. There were no adverse side effects to using lavender oil as a form of treatment. I love essential oils in general so it feels good to know that I can rely on lavender oil to ease my anxiety and stress.  There are also other benefits of lavender essential oil.

Ashwagandha Roots

Ashwagandha is a very new supplement to me, so we are still getting to know each other, but so far, it has been beneficial to me. It has a powerful aroma to it that can be described as a horse-like smell. Ashwagandha is used to treat several other issues like anxiety, trouble sleeping, mild tumor, asthmas, leukoderma, arthritis, fibromyalgia chronic liver disease and tuberculosis. It works to manage anxiety and stress because it contains chemicals that can help relax the brain, reduce inflammation, lower blood pressure and alter the immune system. A study performed by Bhattacharya et al. in the year 2000, discovered that Ashwagandha produced similar results as lorazepam. Unlike Xanax, there are no adverse side effects to taking this natural supplement. So far, I love it, and I would recommend it to anyone who suffers from anxiety and stress. You can give it a try and see how well it works for you.  To learn more about the experimental study  click here .

Valerian Root

Valerian is a natural herb. It is most commonly used to treat sleep problems because it appears to act as a sedative on the brain and nervous system. Some people use it for other issues such as depression, psychological stress, hypochondria, migraine, mild tumor, epilepsy, and ADHD. I use it to help me fall asleep and this, in turn, helps reduce my stress level. Usually, when I take it, I feel brand new the next day, and that’s a great feeling to have if you are always stressed out and worried all the time. There are some side effects but they are not as intense as Xanax. Some of these side effects are headache, upset stomach, and dry mouth. I don’t take valerian every day but instead as needed, and the safety of long-term use is unknown.

Keep in mind that some of  these supplements are not as powerful as Xanax or produce the same result as Xanax but they come close to it and the side effects are little to nothing.
