Lump in the Throat Sensation
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), a sensation of lump in the throat (without any structural blockage) is referred to as “Plum Pit Qi” and accompanies anxiety, depression, sorrow and is associated with a sense of being unable to express oneself verbally.
- Difficulty voicing opinions
According to Ayurvedic Medicine (Traditional Medicine of India/ Yoga), one’s throat chakra is blocked when one feels a sensation of something stuck in the throat (with no actual obstruction). This could be due to a conditioning or learned behavior from one’s childhood where speaking up was not allowed, leaving one shunned, shamed or berated for doing so.
Anxiety Home Care Tips:
- Breathe OUT
- Herbal remedies
Water–Becoming dehydrated may make us more prone to anxiety and may exacerbate the sensation of a lump in the throat by further tightening the throat muscles.
Run– Going for a jog has proven helpful for many who feel anxious, including those who have anxiety due to Hyperthyroidism. This is because of it helps burn up excess adrenaline released during the body’s fight or flight response. Be sure to start out slow if you have not been running in a while or are just starting out. Increase mileage slowly (less than 4% increase in mileage per week).
Breathing exercises– Deep breathing for Relaxation may be difficult for Anxiety sufferers. This is because breathing in can be hard to do when you feel like you cannot get enough air already! This is why you begin by BREATHING OUT first-like blowing out birthday candles.
Yoga or Qigong incorporate breathing into movement for a full mind-body connection.
Meditate– Find a Meditation center or a community group. If there isn’t one close by, start by listening to one on YouTube or purchase a guided meditation c.d. Ackerman Acupuncture in Anoka will continue Meditation classes again this Spring season.
