Millions of Americans struggle with anxiety, yet not only is this crisis of the mind not often discussed, but treatment options for addressing it are also limited. What is anxiety? And what natural methods are available to treat it?
Can Anxiety be Defined?
While anxiety is one of Americans’ most frequently cited mental struggles, no two cases look alike, making this issue difficult to define.
The Mayo Clinic, a prestigious medical institution, put together this definition of anxiety:
“Experiencing occasional anxiety is a normal part of life. However, people with anxiety disorders frequently have intense, excessive and persistent worry and fear about everyday situations. These feelings of anxiety and panic interfere with daily activities, are difficult to control, are out of proportion to the actual danger and can last a long time. You may avoid places or situations to prevent these feelings. Symptoms may start during childhood or the teen years and continue into adulthood.”
How Prevalent is Anxiety?
While anxiety is cited as one of the most common ailments affecting Americans today, many people who struggle with anxiety admit to being pressured or stigmatized into downplaying their symptoms. But according to the National Institute of Mental Health:
- More than 19% of American adults (one in five) struggle with anxiety. Anxiety is more common for women than men, affecting about 23% of adult women and 14% of adult men.
- Anxiety is most prevalent in adults between the ages of 30 and 44. However, about 31% of Americans will experience serious anxiety at some point in their lives.
- How anxiety affects people is highly relative. About 43% of people who struggle with anxiety say it only ‘mildly’ impairs their day-to-day lives. About 33% say their anxiety creates moderate impairment. Approximately 22% say their anxiety causes serious impairment in their day-to-day lives.
- Anxiety is becoming a serious problem for adolescents, with American youths ranking higher in anxiety prevalence than adults. According to the data, 31.9% of young people struggle with anxiety, with about 8% saying they are severely impaired by it.
Shilajit Benefits: Giving the Body the Nutrients it Needs
While it may be the most common mental health issue affecting Americans today, treatment solutions for anxiety are limited. What options do people have if they want to treat anxiety naturally?
Immune Solution’s 100% Natural Shilajit provides the critical nutrients the body needs to restore and revitalize essential nutrient deficiencies that may contribute to anxiety. Quoting Jackie Page, Immune Solution founder and innovator of Shilajit:
“Shilajit offers numerous health benefits, including functioning as an antioxidant to improve the body’s immunity & memory, an anti-aging protectant against cellular damage, an abundant anti-inflammatory & anti-arthritic pain reliever, an antimicrobial & antiviral agent, an energy booster combating chronic fatigue, and a diuretic to remove excess fluid from the body. Shilajit is also known to have a calming effect on the body, relaxing the muscles, including those of the heart; this soothing effect can help in lowering levels of stress & anxiety. And Shilajit can play a significant role in weight management, as it leads to a major improvement in cellular functions, which promotes increased energy levels. This makes it a preferred pre-workout supplement, as it aids a better response to exercise, thereby arguably promoting effective weight loss.”
