Lifting the Spirit
Nature’s Remedies for Stress and Relaxation
Stress is the major problem of the Twenty-first century, as our lives get more hectic and the methods we use (alcohol, caffeine, nicotine) to get us through merely reinforce feelings of lethargy, fatigue and depression. However, herbal remedies have been used for centuries to make us feel better, more focussed and energetic.
Herbal remedies are the safest way to help your body cope with contemporary life as they work with the body’s own hormones and are a natural way to treat a wide range of problems orthodox medicine is currently unable to treat effectively. After all, herbal remedies date from a time when ‘happiness’ was the goal of a life, not meeting sales targets or completing your paperwork for the next departmental meeting. Herbal remedies act to bring our bodies into tune with our deepest human needs, instead of the desires of consumerism, and so can be used to treat the symptoms of stress-related illnesses: anxiety, exhaustion and depression.
