Homeopathic Remedies To Help You Manage Stress Symptoms, Before Stress Manages You
Stress seems to be a normal part of life, and according to some experts, in just the right amounts stress can be motivating and possibly good for us. But too much stress can lead to anxiety, depression and other emotional and physical issues. The trick is to manage stress before it manages you. One of the best pieces of advice I've heard is to step away from the TV and 24 hour news cycle, take a walk and breath in some fresh air. Beyond that, homeopathy has an uncanny way of helping the body disconnect from pressure and stress whether in the throes of emotional turmoil or just unable to relax.
Because homeopathic remedies are natural and worry free, you can call on these specially formulated remedies anytime to help your nervous system and body chemistry minimize the effects of stress. As everyone responds differently to stress, each of these offers a unique range of homeopathic support so you can calm the stormy sea of nervous tension.
A stressed, aging, grieving, tired and/or sleepless nervous system can encourage a range of agitated, irritable, moody, weary, sad or sleepless symptoms plus headaches, stomach aches, backaches, etc. This formula can send a simple message: Take it easy! Kali phos, the nerve nutrient cell salt, calms sore, sad or jittery systems aggravated by mental or physical stress. Ignatia brings relief when frayed by emotional stress due to grief, breakups, anger, jealousy or sadness. Agnus castus is called in to lighten the weary sadness that can haunt the weary. This simple solution can help take the weight off of life at any age.
With a little help, the body can calm its stress responses, to let you relax and put your best foot forward. Whether the stress involves stage fright, midterms, work, homesickness, grief or sadness, this highly trusted combination offers
Whether stress, fear, grief, disappointment, homesickness, or illness tax the nervous system, Nervousness #4 is specially designed to step in before emotions spiral out of control. When touchy irritability, listless indifference or stubborn disobedience dominate, its natural balancing support can prove highly beneficial, especially if debility, illness, emotional strain, growth or hormonal changes contribute.
As one of the key ingredients in each of these homeopathic combinations, it's worth saying a few extra words about Ignatia. Whether natural to the individual or induced by emotional stress, the individuals who need Ignatia’s support the most are sensitive, idealistic, sometimes secretive. Their moods may alternate frequently - tears turning to laughter and back again. They may internalize their feelings so well that only their sighs let you know what is beneath the surface. Over time, they can become very defensive, touchy, suspicious, jealous and even rude. The line between Nat mur and Ignatia for grief and suppressed feelings is narrow. One way to tell the difference is their response to sympathy, Nat mur may resent it, while Ignatia just prefers to be alone. Ignatia should be considered first when overwhelmed by recent grief. Isn’t it fitting that such an emotionally stabilizing plant is the namesake of the patron saint of ‘spiritual retreats and exercises’ who introduced the plant to Europe from the Philippines?
