Anxiety, restlessness and anguish are mental states that are displayed as feelings of insecurity, worry and the outlook that something terrible is going to happen.Symptoms: A feeling of insecurity and that something terrible is going to happen. Anxiety is like restlessness and exhibits itself as light or superficial anguish. Anguish, on the other hand, is a deep and indeterminable sense of fear, where most often the cause is unknown.
Causes: The causes can vary greatly, but those that we can cite are:
- Traumatic experiences in the past
- Excessive stress
- Current difficult situations that risk our family’s security or our own.
- Uncontrollable obsessive thoughts in which the person’s imagination goes beyond reality.
- Inadequate nutrition.
- Excessive stimulants, drugs or alcohol.
It’s important to have a psychological analysis or self analysis done to discover the cause of the problem. This analysis should be done by a psychologist or someone who can help determine the root of the problem. In addition to going to a psychologist, we can relieve our uneasiness with nutritious food and/or herbs.
