Anxiety is a common mental health problem affecting millions of people every year. Stress is often a component of that anxiety. Although there are prescription medications to treat anxiety, there are also many nondrug treatments that are safe and effective. Using natural remedies will help to improve your emotional state, and should be your first step for lowing stress and anxiety levels.
 

1. Yoga Breathing

Focusing on your breath is a classic yoga breathing exercise. Because you can’t be anxious at the same time you are taking deep breaths, this technique is immediately relaxing. Deep breathing is easy to do and very effecting for reducing stress and anxiety. Sit in a comfortable and quiet place and close your eyes. Exhale completely through your mouth. Then inhale through your nose for a count of four. Hold your breath for a count of seven. Then exhale slowly through your mouth for a count of eight. Repeat this breathing exercise a few times until you feel calm.  For other breathing techniques to assist in relaxation check out this link.

2. CBD Oil

CBD oil is growing in popularity as a nutritional supplement. Many scientific studies show its effectiveness in treating a host of conditions including anxiety and stress. CBD (or cannabidiol) is a component of hemp that has medicinal benefits. Although it’s derived from the cannabis plant, there is no THC so it’s legal and safe to use.  CBD oil comes in various flavors such as mint, vanilla and strawberry, and is easy to take. It comes in a small bottle with a dropper.  You place several drops under your tongue, and hold it for a minute to be absorbed before swallowing.  For extremely pure CBD oil check out PureKana

 

3. A Walk in the Woods

Taking a walk is a form of aerobic that releases e endorphins and makes you feel better. Although a walk around the city helps with stress, it’s more beneficial if you walk in nature. Research reveals that a person has lower stress hormones after walking in a forest than after a walk in an urban area. The fresh air, sunshine, woodsy smells, sounds of birds and babbling streams, and majestic views all contribute to reducing anxiety and creating a sense of calm. A 20 minute walk is all it takes.

 

4. Herbal Remedies

Herbs have been used for millennia to treat various diseases and medical conditions. There are many herbs that offer psychological benefits and help to relax a person’s anxious mind. Drinking chamomile tea a few times a day has a relaxing effect on the mind and body. Lavender oil is another popular herb for treating stress. You can place a few drops in a cup of boiling water and inhale the aroma, or you can apply a few drops to your wrist or collarbone and allow the aroma to soothe you.  Other than tea and oils,here is a few easily accessible herbs to start.

 

5. Mindfull Meditation

Mindful meditation has been used for centuries by Buddhists, and is now a mainstream meditative technique. This meditation is done by paying attention to each moment. By focusing on and experiencing what is really happening around you – your breath, the sound of traffic in the distance, the hum of a refrigerator – you won’t think about the worries and fears that cause anxiety and stress. A daily meditation practice of at least 10 minutes in which you are mindfully aware of the present will reduce the stress stemming from thoughts about possible future events.

 

6. A Hot Bath

A soothing hot soak is always a great way to relax. If you add a few drops of lavender oil you can turn it into a spa experience. Also adding Epsom salts will increase the calming effect of the bath and lower anxiety. The hot water also raises your body’s temperature to improve your overall mood. The hot water also relieves muscle tension which can lead to stress. This warmth may explain why exercising, drinking hot tea, sitting in a sauna and sunbathing all help to improve your outlook and well-being.

 

7. Nutritious Foods

Sometimes people feel stressed out and anxious because they are hungry. It’s important to eat breakfast if you suffer from chronic or temporary anxiety. You can also have a snack in the middle of the day such as dark chocolate or walnuts. Any food that has the essential nutrient choline, such as eggs, will help to lower anxiety. Studies show that a deficiency in choline can result in higher levels of anxiety.  For some more information on choline and other foods high in choline please visit This Link

 

By using one or more natural remedies, you can reduce your anxiety and stress and feel more emotionally balanced. Anxiety and stress don’t have to be a major part of your life.

  1. What do you recommend for wellness, I’m 66yrs old and have high blood pressure, other than that I’m pretty healthy.
    I was thinking of taking CBD oil for it wellness benefits. Your thoughts.

  2. I suffer from from severe social anxiety and currently have to take 2 milligrams of Xanax per day just to get the relief I need. I live in Florida so THC products are out but I have been reading about your CBD oil and finally ordered a bottle (300mg to start). I was wondering the recommend dosage you suggest to get me started and the best time of day to take it? I would trying anything to eventually work my way off meds and I pray this helps me do just that. Thank you

    1. Hello,

      The recommended dose is 1/2 the dropper 1-2 times a day. If you do not get the desired relief within a couple days you can slowly increase the dose as that is not harmful and essentially adds to the potency being absorbed. Our products metabolize differently in each individual; we do have customers whom take it in the morning, afternoon, and evening as they find that is what works best for them.

  3. I have started using cbd gummies about 2 weeks ago for anxiety and have noticed a marked difference in how I feel, for the better.

  4. I was looking for a right marijuana strain that could help me with my chronic back pain. I’m suffering from it for almost 2 months now I just don’t know if it’s connected to my work since I’m sitting more or less 9 hours. I came across this marijuana strain black mamba CBD https://blimburnseeds.com/cannabis/original/medical-cbd/black-mamba-cbd. This is the first time that I would be taking medical marijuana I’m not sure if this would be effective with my back pain. Also is there any other way of using it medically?

    1. Hello,

      I am very sorry, we do not offer marijuana products. Our products are all derived from hemp and they only contain minimal amounts of THC, .02% to be exact, so they do not get you high and there are no psychoactive affects.

      For chronic pain our 1000mg potency oil is best. The recommended dose is ½ the dropper 1-2 times a day. If you do not get the desired relief within a couple days you can slowly increase the dose as that is not harmful and essentially adds to the potency being absorbed. Our products metabolize differently in each individual; we do have customers whom take it in the morning, afternoon, and evening as they find that is what works best for them. The topical ointment would be beneficial as well as it contains menthol so it gives an instant relief while the CBD absorbs into the skin.

    1. Hello,

      There have been studies on the effect of CBD and ADHD. We have posted a few articles on our Facebook page, you can also google CBD and ADHD and a bunch of articles will pop up! Let us know if we can assist you with anything else Kim! 🙂

  5. Hi I would like info on gummies vs oil , interested for myself for anxiety but also I hear it’s good for kids on the spectrum with their anixiety so I’m curious if it’s ok for my 14yr old

    1. Hello,

      For anyone under the age of 18 we always recommend speaking with a physician. Our gummies are THC FREE and if given the okay by the physician I would recommend splitting the gummies into fourths to begin with. If the desired relief is not reached you can slowly increase the dose as that is not harmful and essentially adds to the potency being absorbed. The gummies are designed to help relax and relieve stress and our products metabolize differently in each individual. The gummies are 25mg each. It is best to start low and increase slowly if/as needed. I would personally start with the oil. The recommended dose is ½ the dropper 1-2 times a day. If you do not get the desired relief within a couple days you can slowly increase the dose as that is not harmful and essentially adds to the potency being absorbed. Our products do metabolize differently in each individual, find what works best for you. 🙂

    1. Hello,

      I am very sorry for any inconvenience. It does take approximately 1-5 business days to fulfill an order and 1-4 days for USPS to deliver.

  6. Both husband and me have High Blood pressure and would like to get off prescribed medication. Does this work for higher blood pressure?

    1. Hello,

      CBD does help high blood pressure, however, we do recommend speaking with a physician before ingesting with other medication.

    1. Hello,

      You can leave a review under the product on our website or our facebook page. 🙂 We hope you have gotten wonderful relief!

  7. I have a dog with anxiety and with the 4th of July fireworks he will be hiding in the bath tub. Could I give him cbd oil for people? I see you sell dog cookies but they contain oat flour as the first ingredient and he can not have oats.

    1. Hello,

      On the back of the bottle it has directions. The recommended dose is 1/2 the dropper 1-2 times a day. If you do not get the desired relief within a day or two you can increase the dose as that is not harmful and essentially adds to the potency being absorbed.
