Got Stress? We Have Effective, Natural Ways to Get Relief

April is National Stress Awareness Month. However, most people experience stress all year long. Stress is the body’s way of letting you know life is out of balance. Effectively managing stress decreases the risk of illness and increases energy.  Ignoring stress may lead to many health problems, such as high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, obesity, addiction, and diabetes.

Here are some recent statistics regarding stress experienced by people in the United States:

Getting Help to De-Stress…


Recently, Suesan Johnson, CCH, C.HP, one of our resident homeopaths, spoke at a local Dementia Support Group about the importance of self-care for caregivers…

While some may feel as though self-care is selfish in nature especially when taking care of a loved one, it is the opposite. Practicing self-care is a win-win. It allows you to be the best version of yourself, so you can be loving and compassionate with others.

The top five examples of self-care are:

  1. eat healthy
  2. stay hydrated
  3. exercise
  4. sleep
  5. stay connected

At Natural Medicine and Detox, we offer natural ways to help clients who suffer from acute or chronic stress and the illnesses associated with it. Acupuncture increases circulation, releases serotonin, and calms the nervous system. Homeopathy is a natural and effective medicine to reduce the symptoms of overwhelm and anxiety.  Both therapies stimulate the body’s own ability to restore balance and manage symptoms associated with stress and anxiety.

Suesan Johnson, CCH, C.HP

The idea is to deal with stress by addressing the root cause.
