There are quite a few options for natural remedies. Although most can't be taken with prescriptions. Are you taking ssris or snris? I was always told by my doctor that because those act on your neurotransmitters that natural things would then be unsafe to mix with them and try herbal. That being said I am done with medication and have found help in calming my anxiety from my amino acids, my lemon balm tea, my essential oils and meditation. Oh and exercise is huge! I hope any of that helps. I also have been feeling better from general healthful things like omega 3, probiotics, turmeric and vitamin d 3. Most of those have been helping with my detox though and not so much the overall anxiety. I know how much not wanting to be dependent on meds can increase your anxiety! Best of luck!
Rescue gum is herbal and helps for mild anxiety and you can even chew it while doing something that makes you nervous.also I have a couple songs that relax me that I always keep on hand. For more severe anxiety I use pain doesn't have to be anything serious just pinch yourself or dig your nails into your hands. It gives me a moment to refocus. I prefer not to take anxiety meds everyday but I do keep them on hand for serious attacks. Also try a dbt book its mostly for bpd but they have a whole chapter on ways to calm and distract yourself that would be good for anxiety
