Agoraphobia - McDowell's Herbal Treatments


Agoraphobia literally means fear of open spaces or more specifically the fear of being trapped without an easy way to leave if anxiety should strike. Panic attacks are often the trigger for this very debilitating condition. It occurrs in far more women than men.

The symptoms of anxiety may include palpitations, dry throat, clammy skin, faintness, hyperventilation, jelly legs, frequent urination and a sense of being over whelmed or a body that feels as heavy as lead. Those with agoraphobia may be very conscious of the lighting and their surroundings in general and experience confusion or exhaustion when their personal space becomes uncomfortable.

Agoraphobia can interfere with daily living so drastically that it leaves the person house bound. Of course, this can also lead to different degrees of depression. Relationships as well can become strained

To make a mix to more specifically meet your needs I often request more information about what time of day it is worse for you, how you sleep, what is happening in your head when it is bad, when it all started and what was happening in your life at the time. To assist with this you may wish to undertake the online consultation as seen on a link below.

Personal Consultation

The mix I formulate is a combination of Hops, Chamomile, Skullcap, Oats, Valerian and Wild Lettuce along with the Bach Flowers Aspen, Cerato, Cherry Plum, Mimulus, Larch, Water Violet and Rock Rose.

I also advise that you take up drinking at least 3 cups of Chamomile tea per day which works along the vagus nerve and calms and supports the nervous system.
