People usually have stress after a hectic day at work or at home. In Australia, anxiety is common among some mental health conditions. On average, one in every three women or five men experiences anxiety at some point in their life.
To those who like to relieve the symptoms naturally, doctors recommend using CBD oil along with the regular cooking oil. You will be surprised to know CBD benefits once you start using it for the following types of anxiety disorder:
1. Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)
GAD is a type of anxiety disorder, which is characterized by chronic anxiety and exaggerated worry, or tension. A person with GAD experiences its symptoms even when there is nothing or only a little to worry about.
People with GAD show signs of excessive anxiety most of the time for a minimum of 6 months. Anxiety could be due to several issues, including personal health, social interactions, profession, or certain circumstances in their everyday life.
Among the symptoms of GAD are the following:
- Extreme fatigue
- Difficulty concentrating
- Tension in muscles
- Inability to control feelings of worry
- Sleeping problems or unsatisfying sleep
2. Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
OCD is another type of anxiety disorder, which is characterized by recurrent, unwanted thoughts accompanied by repetitive behavioral actions, such as counting, washing hands, checking on things, or cleaning. These actions are performed to prevent obsessive thoughts or simply make them go away.
However, performing these rituals provides them with temporary relief, whereas completely avoiding them leads to increased anxiety.
Symptoms & After-effects
- A person with OCD fails to control his/her thoughts/actions even after recognizing them as excessive.
- They spend a minimum of an hour every day on these thoughts/activities.
- They experience difficulties in life due to their behavior and activities.
3. Panic Disorder
Panic disorder is a common type of anxiety disorder, which is characterized by unexpected, repeated episodes of an intense feeling of fear. The episodes are usually accompanied by a few physical symptoms, such as shortness of breath, heart palpitations, chest pain, dizziness, and abdominal distress, etc.
4. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
PTSD is a type of anxiety disorder, which you can develop typically after exposure to a terrifying event of occurrence or threatening of grave physical harm. Among some traumatic events that may cause PTSD are a natural or human-caused disaster, violent personal assault, a severe accident, or a military combat.
5. Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD) or Phobia
SAD is a common anxiety disorder, which is generally characterized by excessive self-consciousness and overwhelming anxiety in everyday social situations.
While social phobia can be restricted to only a specific type of situation (fear of speaking in formal/informal situations, eating or drinking beside others), SAD is a severe form in which a person may experience the symptoms almost any time when surrounded by other people.
The feeling of stress and anxiety is common when we feel under pressure. When it stays longer, see a doctor and try to go natural about it.
