Best Herbal Aphrodisiacs for Women

Women searching for a lift to their libido may want to try herbs as an aphrodisiac.
Herbs work on the female hormones to bring it into balance while other herbs work directly on the sexual organs to stimulate and heighten sensation.
It's important to know that a woman's hormones need to be balanced for her to get 'in the mood.'
Unbalanced hormones lead to a host of uncomfortable sensations and cause both physical and emotional changes in the body.
These include PMS symptoms such as bloating, cramping, headaches and fatigue along with emotional issues such as irritability, anger, depression and weepiness.
A woman experiencing peri-menopause may have other issues as well, such as hot flashes, night sweats, facial hair and heavy periods.
These symptoms can affect a woman for two weeks of the month - the week prior to her period and the week when she has her period.
If she's not feeling good during these two weeks, she will be less interested in love making.
The more stress a woman experiences also has an effect on whether her monthly cycle and her hormonal balance.
Taking herbs can not only bring hormones into balance but often reduce the effects of stress in many cases.
Some herbs may take a month or longer to bring a woman's hormones back into balance. Once the hormones are balanced, however, it may be all that is needed for a woman to get sexually stimulated.
Other herbs work more directly on the sexual organs but these also need to be taken in advance to tune up and prepare the body.
There are 12 herbs that a woman can consider taking to heighten her libido.
These herbs are; Chinese ginseng, Cordyceps, Rehmannia, Epimedium (also known as Horny Goat's Weed), Reishi, Gingko Biloba, Catuaba, Suma, Muira puama, Damiana, Maca and Yohimbine.
Two of these, Cordyceps and Reishi, are actually mushrooms which have herbal qualities.
Some herbs, like Yohimbine, are controversial and need to be taken with the consent of a doctor or a properly trained natural health care practitioner. Herbs like Yohimbine have many side effects and are also affected by the consumption of beverages such as caffeine or alcohol.
Aphrodisiacs like Epimedium shouldn't be taken on its own and should also be taken with caution as it can affect sleep patterns or a woman's hormones if she is experiencing symptoms like hot flashes.
Herbal aphrodisiacs may also have contraindications for people who are taking prescription drugs or are on monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs), as there could be a number of unpleasant side effects.
Some herbs like suma and maca are adaptogens, which means they are effective at helping the body combat stress as well as being aphrodisiacs.
While these herbs are good choices for some people, they may not be for others.
Knowing which herbal aphrodisiacs to take can make all the difference for a healthy, hormonally balanced body.

Natural Remedy for Curing Gout

So you've been suffering from painful gout attacks?
 Is there really a natural remedy to cure gout? If so, then why didn't your doctor tell you about it?

Gout is usually characterized by recurrent attacks of acute inflammatory arthritis - a red, tender, hot, swollen joint. It is caused by elevated levels of uric acid in the blood. Uric acid is the waste product formed from the breakdown of food and the body's cells. The uric acid crystallizes, and the crystals deposit in the joints, tendons, and surrounding tissues. Gout is a very painful medical condition, to put it mildly. Some sufferers have described the intense pain of a gout attack as similar to being burned by a flame.
Gout symptoms will usually last between three to ten days. If another attack occurs, they tend to increase in frequency, become more severe, and last longer. Over time, recurrent gout attacks can damage the joints and the surrounding areas.
There are several inter-dependent factorsthat helps to contribute the onset of gout attacks; Being overweight can worsen any type of arthritis and the over consumption of alcoholic beverages will not only cause gout but lead to other health complications such as hypertension and coronary artery disease.
Foods that are high in purines (found in all foods that have protein) and fructose sweetened beverages will cause excessive protein build-ups. By the way, that's the reason why in the past, gout was passed off as an affliction that only affects the rich due to the consumption of good food and plenty of liquor.
Another main trigger for Gout attack is due to severe dehydration. When our body is dehydrated, the amount of uric acid in our body rises. When this happen, our kidneys' ability to get rid of the extra uric acid decreases. So when our body doesn't have enough water, we will be more likely to get a gout attack. Drinking lots of unsweetened fluids will reduce the likelihood of crystals forming in our kidneys. The general rule to know for sure if we are well hydrated is to check the colour of our urine. If it is light in colour, we are well hydrated. However, if it is dark in colour, we need to drink more fluids, especially more plain water.
Most of the time, gout sufferers will try medications with analgesics properties to block the pain signals. Unfortunately, these paracetamol products can lessen crucial antioxidants which in turn can inhibit the elimination of uric acid levels.
Gout sufferers may also turn to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, colchicines, and corticosteroids. NSAIDs are the usual first-line treatment for gout.
However, drugs like Colchicines are known to cause stomach aches, nausea, vomiting and severe diarrhea. Other medications may lead to kidney stones and acute dehydration. Some may even worsen the acute inflammation. There are even medicines that though helps reduce the pain, at the same time, it can also prevent the kidneys from excreting uric acid, which in turn will develop into crystal and cause the acute inflammation.
Without proper treatment, episodes of acute gout may develop into chronic gout. Chronic gout will lead to the destruction of joint surfaces, joint deformity, and painless tophi. Therefore, it is important to treat gout condition as soon as possible because it can lead to permanent damage to our body.
When our health is at risk, we have got to get down to the root cause. Let's look at the solution to this condition with a new perspective. Natural remedy is kinder and gentler to our body than drugs, as well as being more effective overall. What we consume plays a hugely important role in both causing gout, and in reducing our likelihood of suffering from these painful symptoms.
Having said all that, if we still insist on taking chemicals to block our pain, then... However, if we are ready for a real and natural solution without the negative side effect, we should look for alternative remedy.
We can stay healthy by following our body's lead and using natural remedies. We must take the necessary action now if we really want to improve our well-being.
Since everything else we tried has not really worked, let's look at alternative solution that will save our money and time!

Help To Overcome Fears About Surgery And To Recover Quickly Afterwards

It is rare to discover a patient who really looks forward to surgery without having a few fears trying to hide themselves in the back of his or her mind. Some manage to keep those fears well hidden but others find this task a little more difficult to achieve.
We all know that fears cause tension. What you perhaps do not fully appreciate is that the more relaxed a patient is the easier surgery tends to be and the quicker the recovery time. Hence it is extremely important to address any fears and to overcome them to the very best of one's ability.
When preparing for surgery your medical team will do their very best to explain the procedure and to allay any fears that you might have. This tends to be approached from a factual, logical mind, perspective. Most patients also try to focus their minds logically and to simply try to push any feelings of fear to the back of his or her mind. You in effect try to suppress the fear, keep a stiff upper lip and just get on with it.
I suspect that this attitude is the one that is favored because most people do not realize that there is anything else that they can do to address their fears or lessen them. The best that they feel that they can do is to lessen their fears by ignoring them.
But even when you manage to focus upon something else and effectively turn a blind eye to fears, your body will reflect those hidden feelings. Your logical mind may indeed focus upon something else, but your body will reflect your emotional feelings.
Fear is something that is experienced instinctively and automatically. It happens without your logical mind having time to control it. Thus to control fear you need to find a way to get into and interrupt this automatic thinking and feeling part of your mind. This is the domain of the subconscious mind.
With hypnosis you can access your subconscious mind. Hypnosis is a state of relaxation. This in itself is of great benefit. But there is even more benefit in what can be achieved through gaining access to your subconscious mind. Suggestions can be made to ensure that you remain calm and relaxed when thinking about your surgery, preparing for your surgery, during your surgery and whilst recovering from your surgery.
Any surgeon will tell you that a relaxed patient makes for a better patient. Not only are you, the patient, a whole lot more comfortable, the surgery itself is made easier as well. The more relaxed you are the less medication you will most likely need and the quicker your recovery time is likely to be. Medical research has proven these likelihoods, in addition to other huge benefits of being relaxed and calm.
And so if you thought before now that there is nothing you can do to help yourself to stay relaxed and calm throughout surgery then I would encourage you to try hypnosis. Hypnosis is natural and has no negative side effects. Hypnosis is also easy to use simply by listening to a hypnosis mp3 download designed to assist with your attitude towards your surgery. With hypnosis you can align your emotional experience with your chosen logical perspective.

Kratom, How Safe Is It?

If taken responsibly, and by itself, Kratom is extremely safe. If over used, Kratom may become habit forming, and because of this, it is best to use it occasionally, rather than daily. When first taking Kratom, it is recommended that do not use it more than once a week, preferably only once or twice a month. This is to ensure that taking Kratom does not become a habit.
Are There Any Health Concerns?
If you consume Kratom responsibly, it is unlikely that you will experience any health issues. In Thailand, where some people consume large quantities of Kratom daily, those dependent on it have lost weight, developed dark pigmentation of the face, and if they quit abruptly, have experienced withdrawal symptoms, which may include; muscle aches, runny nose, diarrhea, muscle aches and jerking, irritability, and uncontrollable crying. As with almost any substance, some people may find that they have an allergic or other reaction to Kratom, even if they use it responsibly.
Can Kratom be Taken With Other Substances?
It is recommended that Kratom not be mixed with stimulant type substances or drugs such as; coffee, amphetamines, yohimbine, and any illegal drugs because of the risk of over-stimulation or increased blood pressure.
It is also recommended that you don't take Kratom with large amounts of alcohol, benzodiazepines, opiates, or any other type of drug that affects the nervous system. This is because there is a possibility that combining these may cause over-sedation and possibly respiratory distress.
You should also not combine Kratom with any type of MAO inhibitors, because serious and even fatal reactions can occur when mixing these with monoamine drugs, and Kratom contains monoamne alkaloids.
There are some combinations that users have claimed to be both pleasant and safe. You can combine Kratom with regular black tea, and many have mixed it with tea made from red poppy flowers, and tea made from blue lotus. 
It has also been combined safely with small amounts of alcohol; however Kratom and large amounts of alcohol should be avoided.

Many people enjoy smoking tobacco, or herbal smoke while under the influence of Kratom, but when doing this you should make sure that you don't fall asleep and drop lit materials.
Is Kratom Legal?
Kratom is currently legal in most countries, including Europe and the United States, at the moment it is illegal in Malaysia, Burma, Australia, and Thailand, and these countries have severe penalties if you are caught in possession of the herb. Laws often change, so before using Kratom, double-check to ensure that it is legal in your location.
Where Can I Purchase Kratom?
There are many online merchants who sell Kratom in the form of dried leaves, extracts or both. However, some vendors advertise different grades of Kratom for different prices, although users have stated that there is little, if any difference between them. So be sure that you make your purchases from a reputable company.

Kratom - A Guide to Effects and Usuage

Kratom is quite a unique herb because different doses will have very different effects. This is because the active alkaloids in the Kratom plant work both as a stimulant and a sedative. Kratom will have a different effect depending on how much is taken, and the person taking it, and because of this, it is advisable to begin with small doses until you know how your body will react.
Stimulant Level (Low Dose)
At this level, Kratom will help you feel more alert, with more physical energy, and for some people, more sexual energy. Most people will become more talkative, sociable, and friendly, and many find it easier to do hard, boring physical activities. Many will enjoy these effects, but some may find that it makes them uncomfortable and edgy.
Sedative Level (High Dose)
At this level, you will normally be less sensitive to emotional and physical pain; you will look and feel calm, and have a general pleasurable feeling, and may even enter a trance-like state. Some people may experience some sweating or itching, and possibly nausea; however, if you lie down ad relax the nausea should pass quickly.
Many people in this state find that it is pleasurable to lie down in a darkened room and listen to music, and many have even entered the 'waking dream' state, which was popular in the 19th century. These effects will usually last about six hours, and the higher the dose, the stronger the effects will be.
The following dosage recommendations apply to Kratom leaves, and not extract. Because people vary in sensitivity to Kratom, and different batches vary quite a lot in potency, these are only rough guidelines, and should begin with a low dose whenever you are using a new batch of Kratom. Some people find that they are very sensitive to Kratom, and even small doses may produce adverse effects such as prolonged vomiting. If this happens to you discontinue use and find an alternative herb.
Begin using Kratom in small doses of between 2-6g, this should produce mild, stimulant like effects. 
7-15g can produce medium stimulant like effects, or sedative effects depending on the person and their tolerance level. 
16-25g produces strong sedative like effects, and is too much for people who are very sensitive to Kratom. 
26-50g is too much for most people and producer very strong sedative like effects.

Are There Any Risks?
When Kratom is taken alone, and not mixed with any other drug or herb, the biggest risk is falling asleep. Because of this you should never drive, or operate machinery after using Kratom. Even if you feel stimulated, you can become sleepy extremely quickly.
Is Kratom Addictive?
While there have been a few reports of people becoming dependent on Kratom after years of daily use, if used responsibly, it is not addictive. If used occasionally rather than daily, there is almost no risk of becoming dependent. But with almost any drug, including coffee, alcohol, and tobacco, if used daily for a long period of time, it can become a habit that is hard to break.

What Is Prolotherapy and Its Treatments?

The term prolotherapy refers to a special type of treatment for chronic pain on ligaments and around joints. It involves the use of a little sugar solution, which is injected into the affected areas to stimulate the body into carrying out necessary repairs. Concentrated glucose may also be used as an injection.
While some types of treatment aim at curing inflammations, this technique actually leads to localized inflammation. As the inflammations resolve, the pain decreases and stability improves, thereby effecting healing. A series of such injections can maintain the improvements for a long time.
How Does the Treatment Work?
Ligaments usually stretch or strain following a musculoskeletal injury, which makes them painful and hypermobile. Healing usually takes place as the ligaments are restored to their original strength. Unfortunately, this is not always the case, and sometimes people end up with lax ligaments. This condition makes it easy to get injured again or may lead to muscle spasms and instability.
While there are different types of treatment for such a condition, including the use of steroid injections, nonsteroidal medications or surgery, these methods generally work slowly.
Prolotherapy works better because it goes directly to the cause of instability, leading to the production of new fibrous tissues and permanent stabilization of the joints. The method creates a mild and controlled injury to stimulate the body to use its natural healing process to develop new tissue. This makes the weakened structure tighter.
Physicians from the Midwest developed the technique more than 50 years ago and have refined it over the years to treat musculoskeletal pain. The physicians discovered that injecting ligaments and tendons with an irritant led to fast and long-term improvement. However, similar treatments can be traced as far back as 500 B.C. For example, Roman soldiers treated dislocations of the shoulder joints using hot branding irons. The resulting scarring helped to fuse torn tissues. The use of injections can be traced to 1926.
Collagen is among the building blocks of connective tissue, and studies have shown that the injections make it change. Different clinical studies carried out have determined that the technique is helpful in treating particular conditions associated with chronic pain.
Types of Conditions Treated
The technique is used in treating chronic pain associated with:
- Lower back pain
- Tennis elbow
- Fibromyalgia
- Plantar fasciitis
- Osteoarthritis
- Tendonitis
- Neck pain
- Whiplash injury pain
- Spider veins
- Varicose veins
- Hemorrhoids
The method can be applied to different parts of the body, such as the shoulders, knees, hands, feet, face, breast and spine.
Different sugar solutions may be used to treat chronic pain from such conditions. The injections use natural substances and anesthetic agents that stimulate the natural healing response. Different substances may be used, and physicians tailor them as per the needs of their patients.
Like any injection, this technique may lead to stiffness and mild swelling. The pain experienced depends on a variety of factors, including the affected structure, solution used and both skill and experience of the physician. However, the mild discomfort disappears relatively quickly.
The treatment is only localized in the concerned area without affecting other areas.

The Role of the Large Intestine in Digestion

The large intestine is the last part of the digestive tract. It has three main regions - cecum, colon and rectum. These three regions form an almost rectangular "frame", with the coils and loops of the small intestine inside it.
The cecum is a short pouch that links the small intestine to the colon and is about 5 feet long. Large intestine is connected to the small intestine through the ileocecal valve. Small intestine sends almost liquid digestive waste product to the large intestine.
Colon absorbs most of the water from this liquid product and converts it into more solid form that the body excretes as feces via the rectum and the anus.
Unlike the small intestine, the colon's long muscle does not form a complete tube. Instead, the muscle is concentrated into three bands called taeniae coli. These run the length of the colon and form pouches along the length called haustra.
The muscular movement in the wall of the colon, mix and propel feces along the digestive tract towards the rectum. The movement of feces varies in rate, intensity and nature depending mainly on the stage of digestion.
There are three different types of motions that take place within the colon, they are known as segmentation, peristaltic contractions and mass movement. While peristalsis propels chyme in the forward direction, segmentation moves chyme in both directions. Fecal material travels very slowly in the colon, compared to the small intestine, to allow for water absorption within the colon walls.
Almost all the chemical breakdown of food is completed in the small intestine. And almost all the nutrients vital for the bodily functions are absorbed in the small intestine.
Almost digested liquefied food is called chyme. Chyme passes from the small intestine through the ileocecal valve into the cecum. From there it reaches the first part of the colon, the ascending colon.
The main function of the colon is to convert liquefied chyme into semi solid feces for storage and disposal. Sodium, chloride and water are absorbed through the lining of the colon into the blood, making the feces less watery.
Bicarbonate and potassium are secreted by colon to replace the sodium and chloride. There are also billions of friendly microorganisms that live within the colon. These bacteria live in symbiotic relationship with the body.
The innermost layer of the colon is the undulating mucosa. This layer has the goblet cells in the intestinal glands, which is responsible for secreting lubricating mucus. This mucus helps ease the passage of the feces.
The rectum is around 5 inches long and it is normally empty except just before and during the defecation. Below the rectum lies anal canal, which is around 1.5 inches long. Within the wall of the anal canal are two strong sets of muscles. They are internal and external anal sphincters.
During defecation, peristaltic contractions in the colon push feces into the rectum, which triggers the defecation reflex. Further contractions push the feces along, and the anal sphincters relax to allow them out of the body through the anus.
Billions of microorganisms, mainly bacteria, live in the large intestine. These are called the gut flora. These bacteria are harmless as long as their population is within a certain range and as long as they are confined within the large intestine.
These bacteria produce enzymes which break down certain food components, especially plant fiber cellulose. Humans cannot digest cellulose. This way, the bacteria can feed on the undigested fiber in fecal material and provide nutrients for the body and help reduce the amount of fecal material.
As part of their metabolism, bacteria produce vitamin K and B. They also produce hydrogen, carbon dioxide, hydrogen sulfide and methane gases. Most of these gases escape through the anus as flatulence. In addition, the gut flora also help control harmful microbes which may enter the digestive system. They also help the immune system in fighting disease by promoting formation of antibodies and the activity of lymphoid tissues in colonic lining.
At least one-third of the excreted fecal weight is gut flora. The gut flora and body exist in a mutually beneficial partnership.

Hahnemann - Homeopathy

Like many forms of alternative medicine, homeopathy evolved from its founder's disillusionment with current medicine practices. In homeopathy's case, the founder was a German medical doctor named Christian Friedrich Samuel Hahnemann.
Hahnemann was born on April 10, 1755, in Meissen, a small town in Saxony, Germany. He was a brilliant student who showed considerable ability in science and languages. At the early age of twelve, he had already received great respect for these skills from his schoolmaster. By the time he reached twenty-one, he had mastered several languages, including English, Arabic, Greek, and Latin.
Hahnemann's great influence came directly from his roots. His father advised him never to take anything for granted; instead, he should reflect on everyday facts. So Hahnemann began the practice of spending hours on a subject at a very early age. This habit led to his becoming one of history's great thinkers.
In 1775, Hahnemann entered the University of Leipzic. During this time, he supported himself by translating four books from English to German, but his poverty forced him to leave school shortly before graduation. He attended a few lectures at the University of Erlanger, where he presented himself for an MD degree. In 1780, a year after graduation, Hahnemann settled in Dessau, where he opened a medical practice. Here, he published his first medical book and began to turn his attention to chemistry.
Hahnemann became a respected chemist at the Hasseler Laboratory in Dessau. While there, he published many chemical books, then was appointed district physician in the region of Gommern. Despite this prestigious position, Hahnemann became embittered with the way physicians practiced their profession. Barbaric doctors performed dentistry and surgery without sedating the patients. They also applied leeches, engaged in bloodletting, did purgative cleansing of the bowels, and prescribed drugs containing high levels of mercury. The latter caused mercury poisoning. Hahnemann was so disgusted with the medical field that one day he closed his office and abandoned his practice.
To support himself, Samuel Hahnemann applied his linguistic talents to translating medical textbooks. While translating William Cullen's Materia Medica from English to German, he came across a passage that dealt with the curative properties of the bark of Cinchoma succirubra, from Peru. The research claimed that the cinchoma bark, which was chiefly employed to cure fevers, contained powerful, fever-producing properties. The alkaloid quinine, extracted from the bark, also provided a good treatment for malaria. Impressed by this, Hahnemann began to experiment with the cinchona bark. He took two grams of the substance twice a day for several days. To his astonishment, he experienced symptoms similar to those of malaria (intermittent fever and chills). The crude substance had provoked symptoms in him similar to those produced by a parasitic infection. This experiment drove him to begin the proving (a study involving people taking a drug) of other substances. Hahnemann conducted his tests on the healthy, rather than the sick. This would give him a precise picture of the mental, emotional, and physical symptoms of a drug. He observed carefully and noted every detail.
Today, in the Homeopathic Materia Medica, we find a compiled list of therapeutic indication of proven remedies, carefully recorded by Hahnemann and his students.

One of the ways that others are accomplishing this is by consistent and daily practice. People are changing their habits by creating realistic goals about their current situation and then making plans to move forward. They are not allowing anxiety,fear, stress and the hundred other things get in the way.
Raw food lovers to even medical doctors are now encouraging the use and purchase of herbals supplements and natural products to overcome anxiety. They realize the old saying, "What you put in, you get out." With the prescription drugs having so many side effects and how they are not actually natural at all, it's no surprise people are walking away from scripts as people in the streets refer as.
Some of the natural remedies for anxiety that people are using range from extracts to daily capsules to regular daily beverages that can be purchased from the local organic shop. These extracts are completely safe as long as you know who the manufacturer is and they supply you with the label of what is in the actual bottle. More and more manufacturers in the health niche are realizing their regular meds or pills aren't doing the trick.
One of the remedies is called the Seven Source Mushroom Extract. It is a small bottle that has a dropper vile built into the lid. You simply drop 10 droplets or more into a cup of water and take daily for 90 days. Then other people are also taking this extract straight up by dropping it on the bottom of the tongues for the direct effect to the blood stream.
I would have to say that the Seven Source Mushroom Extract was good as well as a calming feel came over me for about 1-3 hours. I just was content and working away on my projects after I took it.

As you'll come to realize, this world is expanding in the commerce world with more herbal and natural remedies for everyday ailments.

What Natural Anxiety Treatments Are Available?

As many people search out solutions to their everyday problems, they are now adding another important factor to their decision making process. Many consumers who are seeking medical and health remedies are finding out if their choice includes only natural ingredients. They are now sick and tired of having to work out a budget for expensive prescription medicines, and only want it in extreme situations where they don't have any other solutions.
Usually people have been doing it wrong since day 1, literally. You see when you were born, you didn't know that you were going to be given some medications and such. Well, some of those aren't actually as healthy as we are lead to believe. And then we are told to go to see the doctor, and then as we grow up we are accustomed to taking prescription meds until we realize they're not healthy. With that being said, now is the time to learn about some of the different natural remedies for anxiety as well as other solutions that will help in getting us healthy.
I'll list some of the natural anxiety treatments here and then break them down into bit sized chunks so you can easily digest. And I promise the information below is gluten free and all natural, enjoy.
Kava Kava 
Seven Source Mushroom Extract 
Wood Betony 
Dopa Mucuna

The above list are some of the herbal supplements for anxiety as well as some other common bodily and life ailments. Below is another list of some natural anxiety treatments.
Raw Food Diet

As you quickly learn in the industry, there are many natural products as well natural anxiety treatments but with more people realizing how vital herbs are, more vendors will be offering different products. That's great news for people like me who like trying out different herbs from time to time.
Valerian is what I like to call good for those who need a simple and soft relaxer. Some of my friends as well as customers in general use it for a sleep aid because of the right properties that are in the capsules. It is very safe and not addicting. If you suffer from anxiety once in a while and wished you had something mild to take, then valerian would serve you well. Or if you need help with sleeping better or falling asleep quicker.

Kava kava 
Kava kava is very powerful and is claimed to not even be taken for long periods of time. It is good for serious headaches and when you have a lot of anxiety. It would be wise to seek a herbalist so you can let him or her know the level of anxiety you are experiencing. One of the reason that kava kava can only be taken for a short period of time is because it can cause liver damage if taken for too long. I do not know how accurate this information has been presented or to what magnitude it would even cause damage to the liver. Less than alcohol I would be assume.

Warning: For very powerful and instant effects from one of nature's wonderful herbs, try Kava Kava.
Seven Source Mushroom Extract 
The Seven Source Mushroom Extract is a smart natural anxiety treatment because it helps with anxiety but also with your heart and stress and mild headaches.

Wood Betony 
Wood Betony was one of the first herbal remedy I took for anxiety. It comes in a little bottle and you can take it directly to your mouth with the included dropper. Or you can squeeze out some 20-30 drops into a glass water and take each morning. I recommend whatever you prefer.

Ashgawanda is another powerful herbal extract. It is like Wood Betony, however it tastes better. And the directions are the same. I find that when I take it when I am feeling nervous, it takes my mind somewhere else to a calm place and I'm still working or whatever I'm doing, but then I realize the different about an hour or so later. Sometimes sooner, but it feels good because I feel good that it is no longer hindering me while I'm working or trying to think.

Dopa Mucuna 
Also known as the velvet bean extract, this herbal supplement has a very powerful effect on the dopamine levels of the person taking Dopa Mucuna, or Mucuna Pruriens. If you believe you need to increase your dopamine levels naturally and safely than Mucuna is right for you. Dopamine provides that sense of "I feel real optimistic about my life" type of outlook.

Anybody who is serious about getting a natural anxiety treatment will definitely being one of these above if not trying all of them. Just remember to ask your doctor as well as talk with a herbalist that knows about anxiety. There are of course many, many more natural remedies for anxiety and this is just a small list to get you going on the right foot in case you don't need to talk with anyone and just need to know which ones are available. As for the other treatments I listed above, that will be in another article.

If you wanted to have a quick fix for your ailment for anxiety until you learn how to get over anxiety, the list above is the best place to start. I would recommend the Seven Source Mushroom Extract because they taste the best out of all of them. Plus you only need a half vile and take it whenever you need to or once per day. Once per day should be enough, but just carry it around with you just in case. You could also try some of the othernatural anxiety treatments as well if you are looking for more ways to overcome anxiety.
