Achieve Anger Management Through Natural Means
Although everyone becomes angry at many points in their lives, are you one of those people that allow anger to get the better of them? Today’s stressful lifestyle often provokes individuals to a point where anger management becomes an issue for virtually everyone. The dangerous part of anger, however, is that it can become a health issue that can lead to serious or even lethal consequences.
Studies have shown a link between anger and disease, indicating that even individuals who have normal blood pressure had a greater risk of developing coronary artery disease or have a heart attack.? This tendency makes controlling you anger even more important.
Uncontrolled anger may not simply be your fault, or a matter of controlling your emotions. Sometimes individuals have chemical imbalances in the brain or nutritional deficits in the body that affect the way we deal with stress and intense emotions. Fortunately, a number of natural remedies are available to help correct deficiencies and imbalances and may be used in conjunction with anger management programs.
Holistic Treatment for Anger
B-vitamins and herbal remedies such as Passiflora incarnata, skullcap or even flower essences can help calm you and may be beneficial in mood management. Some commercial homeopathic remedies also target mood management. Herbs affecting hormone imbalances can be effective in women suffering severe PMS.
Diet can be another effective control in anger management. Spicy and sour foods can feed anger as well as substances that stress the liver, including black tea, caffeine, coffee, soda, tobacco and alcohol. Natural supplements used in conjunction with soothing activities such as meditation tai chi, yoga, qi gong and other martial arts can be an effective means of anger management.

I've been feeling extremely irritated and angry and there' nothing bothering me. I get angry for silly reasons, like if someone talks to me while I'm watching something on TV, I'd snap at them and feel pretty irritated. I just don't want anyone to talk to me or tell me anything. Why is that? Could it be some sort of vitamin deficiency or something because there's NOTHING bothering me.
I am 40 years old and do not have any medical issues.
