Acupuncture / supplements / natural remedies help anyone?

Hi all, newbie here. I have GA and phobias. Anyone get help from acupuncture or natural remedies, such as essential oils/supplements? Not interested in pharmaceuticals, as I am very sensitive to them and get bad side effects from any pharma drug. Am currently taking L-Theanine and Adrenal Fatigue supplements, w/o much success. Preferably something that won't make me feel like a zombie..

I have found that Lavender essential oils are super soothing. Basically anything Lavender scented is really calming. I have an essential oil diffuser that I use at night and I put the Now Peace & Harmony essential oil blend or Edens Garden Relaxation blend in. I also bought the Aura Cacia lavender roller ball that you can apply directly to your skin. Just knowing that other people use it for calming purposes helps immediately calm me when I use it. Bach also has stress relief pearls that dissolve on your tongue and spray to use as a natural remedy.

I take L-Theanine and an Adrenal Health supplement too. As well as magnesium. I also take a passionflower tincture, usually once a day but when I am anxious I take it twice. Passionflower is very gentle. Kava is good for short term. It can be bad for your liver with long term use. I also have Aconitum napellus (monkshood) that I carry on me if I have a panic attack. I like Lavender and rose for essential oils. I diffuse oils all the time. Aura Cacia's panic button is a nice blend. Plant Therapy's Citrus Burst is very uplifting and I love their Brain-aid for when I can't get out of my brain fog. I find that your "nose knows" if I smell something and I love or want more of that particular smell than that is what I will diffuse. Find a store that has EO's and smell some and see what you like. And grab some lavender to have on hand...very soothing. My massage therapist/reiki healer has helped me with eo's and they can be very helpful. I have yet to try acupuncture but have been curious. So, all of these above along with diet, exercise, a good multivitamin, a good omega 3 supplement, breathing exercises and mindfulness have helped me. Stay positive and smile! Good luck :)
