Everyone experiences occasional anxiety. This feeling of fear and worry is your body’s natural response to stress. But if you have extreme fear almost every day for six months or longer, you may have an anxiety disorder.
Anxiety causes distressing symptoms that can disrupt all areas of your life, including work, school, and social interactions. Fortunately, treatment is available.
The team at Natural Green Remedies offers an alternative approach to anxiety treatment that may include using service animals and/or medical cannabis to reduce fear and help you lead a happy, productive life.
There are many types of anxiety disorders. The anxiety disorders that respond best to medical cannabis treatment include:
Formerly called social phobia, this type of anxiety disorder causes an intense fear of social interactions. This may cause you to avoid social situations, including work and school, for fear of embarrassment.
Generalized anxiety disorder involves excessive worry about normal things like work, personal health, social interactions, and routine issues. The worry is often difficult to control and has a negative impact on your physical and mental health.
Panic disorder involves sudden episodes of intense fear called panic attacks. During a panic attack, you may display a variety of physical and emotional symptoms like sweating, breathing rapidly, and feeling out of control.
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a separate condition that’s closely related to anxiety. People who have PTSD continue to re-experience a terrifying event for months or years after the threat has passed.
Most of the time, anxiety treatment involves medication, psychotherapy, or a combination of both. However, these treatments aren’t always effective, and some people can’t tolerate the side effects of medications.
Natural Green Remedies offers a natural alternative to medications with medical cannabis and service animal certifications.
Medical cannabis is an approved and effective treatment for anxiety disorders. Additionally, many people feel safer and calmer in the presence of an emotional support animal.
First, the anxiety specialist at Natural Green Remedies meets with you to discuss your specific symptoms and how medical cannabis can help. Then, they write you a recommendation for a medical marijuana card that you take to a dispensary to buy the appropriate dose of cannabis products. You must have a valid New Jersey or Pennsylvania driver’s license or identification card, depending on which office location you go to.
