Homeopathic Remedies for Anxiety and Stress
Control Feelings of Worry and Pressure Naturally. Say NO to Side Effects from Synthetic Drugs!
More than 30 million people in America suffer from anxiety and stress. Recurring mental strain impacts our health and happiness, and many over-the-counter drugs are as hurtful to our bodies as the conditions they are trying to cure. Find out how natural and safe homeopathic remedies can help you alleviate anxiety and stress.
What is Anxiety?
The words stress and anxiety are often used synonymously, but they have different medical meanings. Anxiety is a mood state and describes feelings of apprehension, skepticism, and fear. Although already referred to by Hippocrates (470-400B.C.), anxiety has mainly been studied since the beginning of the 20th century.
Surveys show that today more than 15% of Americans are affected by some form of anxiety. Moderate feelings of anxiety are a natural part of life and alert us to impending danger. Symptoms of anxiety include feelings of worry, performance fear, uneasiness in new places and situations, panicky feelings about everyday events, self-doubt, and extended grief over lost relationships. Recurring anxiety can cause more severe conditions, e.g. depression, insomnia, digestive problems, headaches, bruxism (teeth grinding), substance abuse, and more.
While the triggers of stress can easily be identified, the sources of anxiety often remain unknown. Anxiety may be linked to long periods of stress or an ill-fated experience in the past. Homeopathic treatments for anxiety can help you control your worries and fears before they begin to interfere with your daily responsibilities and prohibit you from enjoying life.
What Causes Stress?
Stress is a natural reaction to psychological and physical threats. In small doses, stress improves our performance under pressure, helps us stay focused, and protects us from exhaustion. Unfortunately, in today's hectic, achievement-driven world, almost every individual experiences larger doses of stress several times per year. Many of us encounter regular stress-causing situations — negative and positive, large and small events — including job pressure, substantial life changes, promotions, financial hardships, daily hassles, deadlines, and grief over illness and death.
Constant stress causes our inner alarm system to remain turned on too long at a time, and it becomes more and more difficult to shut if off. When not assessed and managed, stress can lead to serious illnesses such as heart disease and high blood pressure. It also takes a toll on the quality of our life, work, and relationships. Natural homeopathic stress medicines support your body's need to calm down, relax, focus, and avoid agitation and exhaustion.
Natural Remedies to Relieve Anxiety and Stress
Homeopathy is a holistic medical practice that addresses ailments at the root, dealing with the underlying causes that lead to anxiety and stress. Diagnosing and understanding what really triggers stress and anxiety, and the different types of reactions to such triggers, is critical in homeopathy as symptoms often manifest themselves when we are exposed to an external force stronger than our internal vitality and immune system. Therefore treating symptoms superficially will only act as a temporary solution and will not provide long-term relief.
Natural homeopathic medicines present an effective and side effect-free way to gain control and take back your life. Anxiety Relief provides both appeasement and stimulation when weary, uncertain, and in need of encouragement. It slows down worried and racing thoughts, clears the mind, lifts the mood, and boosts confidence. It alleviates oversensitivities and pains throughout the body, supports the digestive and nervous system, and regulates the rate of the pulse. The smart combination of ingredients also helps you to a better night's sleep and a brighter outlook in the morning.

Stress Absorber contains seven ingredients that have established a track record in homeopathy to deal with physical and mental exhaustion and irritation.
