Where the anxiety arises in specific circumstances, it is known as a phobia. There may be fears of thunderstorms, dogs, the dark, insects, mice, snakes, diseases like cancer or heart disease, crowds, narrow spaces (claustrophobia), heights, hearing bad news, going outside (agoraphobia), flying, evil, or strangers.
Homeopathic remedies may be used acutely for anxiety before a performance, public speaking or exams. As an adjunct and/or aid, Gemmotherapy, Bach and Australian Bush Flower essences work well. In these cases, it is best to consult with a homeopathic practitioner for best results.
