    Anxiety attacks can cause such physical symptoms as sweaty palms, dizziness, and diarrhea or intestinal/digestive discomfort, a feeling of having a lump in the throat, insomnia, and restlessness. This list is far from inclusive of the physical discomforts that excess anxiety can bring about. There may be feelings of uncertainty, uneasiness, or apprehension related to the unknown. One may experience a racing heartbeat, tightness in the chest, rapid breathing, or tingling in the hands and feet. The physical effects of anxiety accrue over time, and can lead to anxiety disorders. Statistics have shown that one in every four individuals in the United States have a diagnosable anxiety disorder.

    St. John's wort (Hypericum perforatum in Latin) is a long-living plant with yellow flowers. It contains many chemical compounds. Some are believed to be the active ingredients that produce the herb's effects, including the compounds hypericin and hyperforin.

    Magnesium (500-750mg) deficiencies linked to chronic fatigue, depression/anxiety, insomnia, PMS

    I used to suffer from depression/anxiety about 15 years ago, since I started taking herbal supplements and exercising regularly and following a healthy diet I no longer suffer from any

    anxiety. Also, I meditate.

    I would go with samE, it's kind of pricey but works. Valerian is good and also st. johns wort. Herbal supplements take time to work. They should be taken at least 30 days to see if they are going to work for you.
