Stress Management & Homeopathy
Natural Homeopathic Stress & Anxiety Treatments for Children, Young Adults, Parents, and Professionals
As stress levels continue to rise across demographic groups, today's young adults – the Millennials – are reported to experience stress and anxiety significantly above the national average. Higher academic and professional achievement standards, a challenging economy, relationships, and a lack of privacy triggered by social media are all reasons for increased stress in all age groups. Stress affects children and teens, and a disconnect with parents about their worries increases tensions at home. Homeopathic remedies and proven holistic stress reduction practices can help you get to know your body, identify stressors, and find the best way to relief stress naturally.
Physical & Emotional Stress
Stress can affect mind, body, and emotions and present itself through various mental, emotional, and physical symptoms. Stomach aches, dizziness, lack of concentration, lack of energy, backaches, and headaches are all physical symptoms that may be linked to stress. Emotionally, stress can cause irritability, anxiety, sadness, fear, or general discontentedness. Because it is often difficult for both children and adults to understand the complexity of stress symptoms, it is important to take the time and learn to connect the dots between triggers and symptoms.
Too Much Stress
Stress is our body's natural way to respond to challenging and threatening situations. When meeting a challenge, the body releases hormones which help us stay focused, energetic, and alert. Stress is what keeps us competitive and sharp at work, during exercise, or at school. But if our life is filled with continuous challenges, we begin to experience stress overload. Too much stress affects every system of the body and can lead to serious illnesses. Studies have shown that our body needs a period of proper rest after encountering extensive stress to restore balance and reset itself. If we are not aware of the fact that we are over-stressed, the body's natural alert system forgets to shut down and begins to operate on autopilot.
