Headaches, giddiness, palpitation, difficulty in sleeping, dry mouth, excessive perspiration and bloating are typical symptoms of anxiety. It is common in women than in men. Passion flower is an age old remedy used for sleeplessness and anxiety. Meditation, yoga, self-hypnosis and breathing exercises are of great help. Valerian herb is effective against insomnia and anxiety. A massage from a professional helps in relieving stress and muscle tension. Sleep is also improved.
