How Nature Helps With Stress Relief

Up to 90% of doctor visits in the U.S. are stress-related, according to U.S. Centers for Disease Control. The National Institutes of Health add that chronic stress may shorten life expectancy up to 20 years. Chronically high cortisol from stress disrupts endocrine, gastrointestinal, immune, and neurological systems.

Regardless of whether we feel stress or not, conscientiously managing our stress response on a daily basis positively impacts every organ and system in our bodies.

As individuals, we differ not only in what we perceive to be stressful, but in how we experience stress. Some people experience stress in the form of worry, tension, irritability, inability to focus and/or difficulty sleeping. These people are clearly in need of more calming influences. However, sometimes the people who need more calm don't even realize it.

While it is not always possible to remove the stressors from life, we can encourage a healthier response to them by introducing a group of herbs called adaptogens to our daily dietary supplement program. Adaptogens help condition the nervous system to deal with a broad range of physical and emotional stressors and quickly return to a state of balance once the stressor goes away, without robbing the body of vital energy.
