Reduce Stress -- Get a handle on better health.

Other than nutrition, it's probable that nothing plays a larger role in your overall well-being than the level of stress you experience in your daily life.

Ideally, we would have NO stress in our lives, and that's an excellent goal toward which to strive. 

But how is it possible to reduce or eliminate stress from our life?



Here are some ways to do that which are quite effective:
- Do all that's feasible to make life changes which reduce tension and anxiety.
     - Make the decision to do at least one thing just for yourself every day.
     - Learn the habit of finding something positive in stressful situations.
     - Avoid the use of stimulants.
     - Avoid foods full of chemical additives; eat "organic" as much as possible.
     - Make it a point to get enough sleep consistently; 8 hours nightly is recommended.
     - Set aside at least a few minutes daily to practice a relaxation technique:
                   It could be meditation, breathing exercises, yoga, journaling....
     - Walk, bike or swim, etc., a minimum of 20 minutes daily.

Kava Kava:  The first choice in herbs when the goal is to reduce anxiety.
     Kava is so very effective compared to anti-anxiety drugs that it was the target of false information several years ago. This plant, especially when taken in whole plant, non-standardized form and in correct dosages, is safe. If it were not, the South Sea islanders tribes which have consumed it by the gallon in rituals over the centuries would most likely be extinct by now. 
     *Be sure that the variety of Kava you buy is Piper methysticum. (see our herbal tinctures page)
