“I can remember what it was like and can tell when it’s coming on again. It’s like my mind keeps going in circles, worrying about the same things and I can’t get out of it.
Stress makes it worse, but it seems impossible to live a completely calm life when working, raising kids, and making sure there are healthy meals every night.
It just seems overwhelming at times.”
This experience from one of our clients is not uncommon in today’s world. There’s always more to do, more to get, and more to achieve which means more to worry and stress about.
So how do you do it all?
The mystery may still remain on “how to do it all” but there’s healthy support for your body when it comes to “how to deal with it all.”
If you suffer from stress and anxiety, Dr. Graves has valuable insight into how to not only cope in today’s society, but how to flourish.
First and foremost, it’s important to bring your mind and body back to a balanced state. This means getting your anxiety and stress under control, which may include a variety of ways to do this such as:
– good sleep
– expressing/processing emotions
– proper diet with protein
Utilizing many methods to manage stress can be key to calming it – think of it like legs of a chair. It takes numerous legs to hold up a chair just as it can take numerous actions to manage stress.
Each individual may have different ways of properly dealing with anxiety and stress, but targeting from different angles can make all the difference.
And one of these ways (or legs) can be supplements.
Over the years, Dr. Graves has tried many supplements and has noticed a distinct handful that are especially effective for the majority of his clients.
- Adrenal Response by Innate® Response Formulas
- AdrenoMend™ by Douglas Laboratories®
- NeuroCalm™ by Designs for Health®
- Lavela WS 1265™ by Integrative Therapeutics®
- CatecholaCalm™ by Designs for Health®
Depending on the severity of stress and/or anxiety, just one or a combination of these supplements can specifically help certain symptoms. For example, if not being able to shut your mind off is a problem, NeuroCalm™ and CBD as needed may be helpful while those with overactive adrenal glands may respond best to Adrenal Response and Lavela (each three times per day).
Talking with Dr. Graves about your specific issues allows him to guide you through both the short-term solutions and long-term options for keeping your stress in check. And considering the affect stress can have on health, it should be a top priority.
“I knew I couldn’t live with it anymore and when I finally had the courage to acknowledge that, I began researching and found Dr. Graves.
After the first session, my body was physically craving the calm from acupuncture and the supplements he prescribed changed my life. I began sleeping, I wasn’t nervous and jittery all of the time, and I began to live in the moment more – which made such a difference for my family.
Since then, I have realized that stress isn’t just something we should live with. Chronic stress is not normal even though it seems like everyone’s life is ‘crazy busy.’ Thanks to Dr. Graves and natural medicine I have a healthy perspective on stress and actual options to deal with it.”
