What Are the Best Ways to Treat Stress?


  1. 1. Cordycepts are a therapeutic fungus found at the high altitudes in China and are one of the most valued medicinal fungi in Chinese medicine.  Research dating back to 1843 suggests the use of cordyceps to help strengthen and rebuilding the body after exhaustion or long term illness.  It is used by athletes to recover after a heavy workout.

2.  Ashwangandha known as a classic rejuvenating herb in Indian medicine, ashwagandha has been shown to enhance adaptability to both physical and chemical stress.  For instance, mice pretreated with ashwagandha and subjected to physical stress showed increased endurance, it can prevent stress induced ulcers.

                                                                                                                            
Ginseng

  1. 3. Ginseng is greatly valued as a tonic, a substance that acts to normalize body function and biochemistry. According to traditional Chinese medicine the individual who will benefit from Ginseng is overwhelmed and exhausted


Bladderwrack
  1. Bladderwrack (seaweed) is a nutrient that provides a natural source of iodine which is required for the synthesis of T4 in the thyroid gland. Stress hinders the proper function of this metabolic regulator, the thyroid.  Research suggests that high levels of stress affects the synthesis of thyroid hormone T4 and T3 causing, weigh gain, fatigue, depression, irritability, memory loss, and possible heart failure.


  1. B12 is also important in maintaining the nervous system. Nerves are surrounded by an insulating fatty sheath comprised of a complex protein called myelin. B12 plays a vital role in the metabolism of fatty acids essential for the maintenance of myelin. Prolonged B12 deficiency can lead to nerve degeneration and irreversible neurological damage.
