Treat anxiety issue with Herbs

The outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and extended stay-at-home orders are impacting our daily life. Fear about a disease and feeling of out of control can be overwhelming and cause strong emotions in adults and children. Especially for people with pre-existing anxiety disorder, the current situation can be much harder to cope with.

According to CDC, Stress during an infectious disease outbreak can include:

Herbal treatment can help treat emotional issue such as anxiety and depression by calming over active sympathetic nerve system (SNS), improving blood circulation, providing more energy to brain and the whole body.

When people feel stress or dangerous, the sympathetic nervous system will direct the body's rapid involuntary response to fight. Heart will beat harder, send more blood to muscles and deliver more oxygen to brain. When the fight is over, body will return to normal.

But if the stressful situation is not solved, the chronical stress will trigger continuous reaction of SNS system. Prolonged over reaction of SNS system results in lack of sleep and lack of energy. Fatigue and over-reaction of SNS system at the same time further trigger anger issue and digestive issues as well.

Herbal treatment can effectively calm SNS system down to treat anxiety and depression issue with zero side effects.
