Homeopathic Remedies for Anxiety and Stress
Control Feelings of Worry and Pressure Naturally. Say No to Side Effects!
More than 40 million Americans 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 why homeopathic remedies and cell salts have become the natural and safe solution to help you alleviate anxiety, stress, physical exhaustion, and sleeplessness.
What is Anxiety?
The words stress and anxiety are often used interchangeably, but they have different meanings in the medical dictionary. Anxiety is a mood state and describes feelings of apprehension, skepticism, and fear. Although already referred to by Hippocrates (470-400 BC), anxiety has mainly been studied since the beginning of the 20th century.
What is Stress?
Stress is a natural reaction to psychological and physical threats. In small doses, stress is normal and healthy. It improves our performance under pressure, helps us stay focused, and protects us from exhaustion. Too much stress, however, can lead to health problems by causing our inner alarm system to remain turned on unusually long and eventually making it difficult to slow and shut down.
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.
Stress Leads to Anxiety
Frequent exposure to stress leads to anxiety. Surveys show that today more than 18% of Americans are affected by some form of anxiety. Symptoms of anxiety include feelings of worry, irritability, trouble sleeping, performance fear, panicky feelings, self-doubt, extended grief over lost relationships, and more. Recurring anxiety can cause more severe conditions or consequences, such as depression, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), heart disease and high blood pressure, and substance abuse, to name a few.
