Is the fear of flying ruining the excitement of your upcoming holiday, and causing you stress and anxiety? Lots of people are scared to fly. It's not uncommon. The fear can be mild or extreme, it varies. Some will only get nervous on the day, while many dread the flight for weeks beforehand. That's such a pity because going on holidays is meant to be an exciting event.

The reasons vary. Some people are fearful about the take-off, others the landing, but for most it's the fear of the plane falling out of the sky. Of course it can be a fear based on a past bad experience. Each day we get out of bed we're at risk of not seeing the night sky that evening. We don't know what each day will bring. Try to tell that to a nervous flyer. I don't think there is any point in telling you to breathe either. You'll be too panicked to do that.

Natural remedies can help you overcome your fear. Here are some that have helped lots of customers.

I have spoken about Bach Rescue Remedy before, and now is an ideal time to use it if you have it at home. Bach Rescue Remedy contains flower essences to ease the feelings of panic and terror, helping you to focus even though you're panicking; it helps you feel relaxed and calm. You can take it from the first moment you feel the fear, right through the holiday until you safely return. It's safe to take if you're on medication. It's small and convenient to carry, and you can get drops, spray or lozenges, it's suitable for young children too.

If you can't escape from images going around and around in your head choose Bach Rescue Remedy Night as this contains an extra remedy (White Chestnut) to switch off the worrying thoughts.

L-Theanine is an excellent remedy for anxiety and panic attacks. It's available in many brands and is included in Higher Nature Balance for Nerves. I talk about this product a lot because I get such good feedback from it for anxiety, panic attacks, and stress. It can be combined with Rescue Remedy for optimum effect.

These natural solutions may help you overcome your fear so that you can relax and enjoy your flight.
