Gearing up for Winter - Part 3

The health of the nerves should always take priority if you are prone to stress and easily suffer the ill-effects of it. Enabling the body to cope with stressful demands is one aspect of treatment. Herbs such as Siberian ginseng or Indian ginseng are excellent for treating stress and helping the body cope with the stress response. Equally, chamomile, lemon balm, passion flower or lime flowers are wonderful at combating anxiety and nervousness during times of stress. The popular St. John’s Wort is always a consideration if symptoms of anxiety or panic attacks also accompany mild to moderate depression. Like all herbs, St. John’s Wort needs to be taken with care because of its known interactions with certain medications and other supplements. Sleep is another important issue and will be discussed at length in a later dedicated posting as not enough emphasis is placed on its powerful and rejuvenating benefits. Sleep is profoundly affected by stress so the atttributes of proper sleep is critical to good health, vitality, mood and energy.
