Public Health England reported that one in four people in the UK are taking potentially addictive prescription medicines such as Benzodiazepines. This is why it’s so important to look for alternative supplements or medicines to help treat conditions of anxiety. Taking a certain pharmaceutical quality oil could help ease both physical and psychological symptoms within just two weeks. What is it?
Research suggests that there is a non-addictive alternative to the usual anxiety medications often prescribed by doctors.
Uniquely prepared lavender oil taken orally has been shown to reduce excessive neurotransmitter activity, reducing overstimulation and hyperactivity of the nervous response and improving symptoms of anxiety.
What the experts said
Professor Hans Peter Volz, professor of psychiatry said: “More than 15 clinical trials show that lavender oil is effective at reducing the psychological and physical symptoms of anxiety.
“The effects are comparable to treatment with pharmacological medication including SSRI’s and benzodiazepines but without the common side effects such as section or addition.”
Lavender flower and its extracts have been used both internally and by olfaction for centuries as a treatment for depression and anxiety.
Analytical research has identified the main active constituents of the oil have begun to elucidate the mechanisms of action and controlled trials in humans now document lavender’s efficacy.
Lavender contains high concentration of volatile oils which impart its distinctive and pleasing fragrance and has also been proven to help ease the symptoms of anxiety.
