Share This Post

It’s that time of year again and while it should be joyous, it isn’t for a lot of people.  There are many ways to minimize stress, depression and anxiety, and to bring back the fun spirit of the holiday season.

For reducing stress, why not consider:

  • Aromatherapy
  • Aerobic exercises
  • Reducing sweets, coffee, tea, and alcohol — okay in moderation!
  • Eating more nuts and greens
  • Massage and/or music therapy
  • Guided imagery — warm, soft breezes on a sandy beach
  • Warm bath
  • Regulated breathing

For coping with depression, consider using these raw materials:

  • St. John’s Wort
  • Omega-3 — essential fatty acids
  • 5 HTP
  • Magnesium
  • Acetyl-L Carnitine
  • Vitamin B

For anxiety and insomnia, consider:

  • Vitamin B Complex (Thiamine, Riboflavin, Niacin, Pantothenic Acid, Pyridoxine, Biotin, Folic Acid or Folate Cobalamine)
  • Omega-3 fatty acids
  • 5 HTP
  • Valerian
  • Passion flower
  • L-Lysine and l-arginine can modulate levels of the stress hormone cortisol
  • Catnip — doesn’t work the same way with people, so you won’t be climbing up trees and draperies!
  • Hops

We have many other suggestions for raw materials that are proven to reduce stress— we invite your inquiries.
