Some supplements that may help relieve the anxiety are Choline, Magnesium Citrate or Skullcap herb. Research all side effects and drug interactions before using any herbs.

Study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (10/1/09)

Norwegian scientists looked at the health records of nearly 6,000 men and women who fell into two age groups, 46 to 49 and 70 to 74.

The participants� blood choline levels were noted, as were any anxiety or depression symptoms as measured by a standard mood scale.

The lowest choline levels were found to be associated with the highest anxiety levels (no link was found between choline and depression).

According to the Anxiety Disorders Association of America, 40 million adults in the US suffer from anxiety disorders, which include generalized anxiety, panic attacks and post- traumatic stress.

The most powerful anxiety-reducing chemical would be the endorphins that are released into the body naturally after exercise. I can tell you from my personal experience that after a regular workout with heavy weights you feel as though you can take on the world and you can handle any situation. Even a regular brisk walk daily can release endorphins and greatly reduce anxiety even hours later.

Here's something one might try and it could be pretty lasting - like forever. Every thing one sees they should try to see something nice and good in it no matter what that thing is a water faucet, a flat tire. a hank of hair etc. Do this for about a week. I think this works because it reprograms the mind. The mind then tells that person they are great and wonderful filling them with lots of self esteem.
