Anxiety is a difficult disorder that many people deal with on a daily basis. There are many forms of anxiety, and they are all hard to cope with, no matter what type is being experienced.
Many individuals decide to treat their anxiety with medication. Medicine can help calm the nerves and allows the sufferer to stop being so stressed. However, there are many negative side effects that come with these types of medications.
Thankfully, there are ways to naturally treat this disorder with holistic therapy. One popular way is through sound therapy. We talked more about this in our last blog post. Click here to take a look at it.
Anxiety leaves us with the inability to think rationally. When this happens, our brain is essentially disordered. Scientifically, anxiety can cause neurons in the cortex of our brain to become unbalanced. Sound therapy actually increases activity and allows a balance in our brain's pathways.
Sound therapy has a wonderful impact on our brain and how it is activated. This works by waking the left hemisphere of the brain up. We've all heard that our creative side comes from the left part of our brain. Because sound and music affects the left side of the brain, it is easier to create a balance and increase of happiness.
Sound therapy works well for any type of anxiety, but the amount of therapy and how often it is needed depends on how severe the disorder is. For example, someone with a generalized anxiety might only need sound therapy once a week or when they're feeling uneasy. Those with panic attacks might need to have sound therapy daily or until the situation can be better controlled with other holistic treatments.
If you are interested in learning more about sound therapy for anxiety or other types of mental illness, be sure to talk to our professionals at Legacy. We can help you learn to cope with your mental illness in a way that does not require medication.
