Alleviate your anxiety the natural way
Stress is a problem that affects many people in the UK. Anxiety can have its roots in work, family or financial worries.
Sometimes there is no trigger for nervousness. Instead, people simply feel unable to cope with life's everyday demands.
If you're suffering from anxiety, it can affect every aspect of your life. Some people have difficulty sleeping, eating and maintaining relationships.
It can also affect a person physically - causing dramatic weight gain or loss, irritable skin and sometimes painful headaches and muscle pains.
If you feel that you are unable to cope with your anxiety, then there are specialist treatments available if you see your GP. Before you take the medical route, some people have found that natural remedies can help alleviate their anxiety.
Exercise is the quickest way to give yourself an energy boost. Getting your blood pumping releases endorphins - mood-enhancing chemicals which help you to cope better with stress.
Although all exercise is good, yoga is particularly beneficial in helping give you some meditation time to relax and reflect.
Yoga can help get you in the right frame of mind to allow you to identify the cause of your stress.
Once the origin of your anxiety has been sourced, you will be better equipped to think of ways around it and bust that stress.
Get rid of your vices
Many people turn to alcohol, caffeine and cigarettes in high-pressure situations.
These vices may give some short-term relief, but they are only creating further problems in the long term.
Instead of drinking coffee or wine, try a relaxing herbal tea or drink. The soothing components will help you sleep better at night, without adding any harmful toxins into your system.
Part of becoming happier simply comes from thinking more positively. Accept the things that you can't change, and focus on the good qualities of your life.
It's a lot easier to get bogged down in the negatives, but in doing so often people miss the many good aspects about their life.
Some people find that writing three positive things about their life every day can really help them to appreciate what they do have.

- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) Carrot Oil contains Beta Carotene and Vitamin A which, by eliminating toxic build-up and repairing sun-damaged skin, helps to improve skin complexion. Antiseptic properties also assist in reducing breakouts and the formation of acne. It is also great for hydrating the skin. So mixing it with Jojoba oil may help. I would also recommend mixing Jojoba oil and Tamanu oil as both have great moisturising properties and are great for acne prone skin. Hope this helps!
- Carrot Oil for Face I have acne. I have been using jojoba oil only but I noticed my face is sometimes dry. If I add carrot oil will it help moisturize my face and clear the spots or should I join argan oil to the mix?
- Ashwagandha Dosage for AnxietyI found a supplement that is 500 mg, 120 Count. Do you recommend taking 1 capsule daily? or 2 capsules? I also take thyroid medication and an SSRI among other things.
- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHello Dia, Thank you for your comment. Research is confusing when it comes to testosterone levels with PCOS and using Ashwagandha. As it is an adaptogenic herb, it will 'adapt' to the environment of the body to support hormonal balance. A huge therapeutic benefit of Ashwagandha is its ability to balance cortisol levels, which could improve stress and symptoms of PCOS also. If you are currently using any medications or under medical supervision, please seek advice from your practitioner to ensure there are no interactions. I hope this helps :)

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Simie, thank you for your message. Ashwagandha is safe to be taken alongside other supplements including Vitamin E and Calcium. We would advise you check with your GP for interactions with estrogen medications for menopause as there are different variations of these medications. I hope this helps :)
