Stress and Anxiety

Natural Prescription for Easing Anxiety

and Stress

When you sense physical or emotional stress, a

sequence of biological events called the “fight-or-flight response”

occurs. This cascade of chemical processes is meant to help you

survive. When your body is in balance, occasional stress can be

exhilarating, but in our hectic world we are in a state of almost

constant alarm.

The symptoms of perpetual stress include anxiety,

nervousness, mood swings, and inability to concentrate, fatigue,

insomnia, shortness of breath, heart palpitations, sweating, light-headedness,

a craving for sweets, alternating constipation and diarrhea, low

blood pressure, and blood sugar disturbances. Plus, PMS and menopause

can increase stress considerably.

No true health program would be complete without

incorporating techniques to help you manage stress. There are simple,

safe remedies that can help you relieve stress and anxiety so that

you can react with grace under pressure.
