Everyone at some point has dealt with stress and feeling anxious. Deadlines, exams, parenting, relationships, health, can all cause stress at some point or another. How we deal with the stresses life throws at it can greatly affect the outcome.
For some getting rid of the stress can be done by exercising, meditating, getting a massage, or even having a quiet moment alone. For others though, stress can linger, start to cause anxiety, maybe even panic situations. This is when it can really effect your health and your life.
Unfortunately we are bombarded with messages that there is a pill that can fix that, and since many are wanting a quick fix, or just plain want to feel better, they resort to the prescription remedy. Usually these medications can be addicting and come with a list of unpleasant side effects, not to mention possible longterm health issues. I personally believe in exhausting all my natural resources first before I would consider a prescription.
Dr. Bach formulated RESCUE Remedy nearly a hundred years ago and it is more relevant than ever! Dr Bach’s natural stress relief pastilles are convenient when dealing with stress and worrisome situations. The formula works on an emotional level, not physical, and it’s amazing how all of a sudden you just realize your not feeling stressed anymore! Bach Rescue Remedy contains active ingredients such as Star of Bethlehem, Clematis Cherry Plum, Impatiens, Rock Rose. These flowers soothe irritability, help with shock/panic and provide a general calmness in times of stress. Also available in liquid drops that can easily be added to water and sipped throughout the day, as well as formulas for pets!
When we are feeling stressed, it causes the cells in our bodies to release magnesium which helps us feel more calm. However, if we are continually dealing with stressful situations, and our bodies are not having time to recover, the level of stress you feel will increase because there just won’t be enough magnesium released. In addition, our diets can be filled with foods that also tax out our magnesium. Sugar especially is huge for causing depletion of magnesium, not to mention vital nutrients!
There are some great options for magnesium supplements, like Innotech Nutrition’s Liquid Ionic Magnesium that doesn’t just taste great, but the nano size particles can easily be transported to the cell membrane, directly through the mouth membranes bypassing the digestive system. Same can be said for Mama Pacha’s new Magnesium lotion, rubbing onto your skin is going to absorb more magnesium directly into your blood stream than having to go through the whole digestive system.
Bottom line is, stress is not something we should allow to linger long, our health is just too important!
