Treatment of Anxiety with Nutritional and Herbal Supplements

The Nutrition Journal recently published a study that investigated the use of nutritional supplements for the treatment of anxiety disorders. The researchers pooled the results of 24 studies, which included 2,619 participants. Of the studies selected for review, 21 were randomized controlled trials and three were open-label, uncontrolled observational studies. The results revealed that while passionflower or kava and L-lysine and L-arginine appeared to be effective in relieving anxiety, St. John’s Wort and magnesium supplements were not. Also the participants involved in the studies reported only mild to moderate side effects from the nutritional supplements. Although further research is needed to determine effective dosages and variations with specific types of anxiety, these findings suggest that the use of certain nutritional supplements may be an effective alternative to manage anxiety disorders for some people.

Acupuncture Atlanta is committed to providing quality care and helping you stay healthy in this environment defined by a new normal. Acupuncture at its core is a preventative modality and our practitioners are here to work with you and design a treatment plan that is suitable for your specific needs.

We will also be taking extra protective measures to ensure the safety of our patients and staff:

·      All visitors musk wear a mask entering the building, checking in and waiting in the lobby. No exceptions.

·      We are providing disinfectant wipes and hand sanitizers for all guests to use in several areas.

·      Each treatment room has a HEPA filter with a built-in UV-C air sanitizer (also used in hospital settings.)

·      Practitioners will wear protective masks and/or gloves.

·      Use of disposable paper sheets or change out sheets in between each patient.

·      Treatment tables and other surfaces will be sanitized after each patient.

·      We try to minimize the number of people waiting in the front lobby - your practitioner may ask you to wait in the car until the room is ready.

Please check your appointment confirmations for specific instructions. Our commitment to keeping everyone safe and healthy is our top priority.
