Stress is linked to the six leading causes of death in our country. Who knew that those feelings of anxiety, worry, tension, and strain we’ve become accustomed to are actually chipping away at our wellness each and every day?
The good news is that we have many safe, effective, and transformative solutions to the chronic stress epidemic, and plant medicine is one of the greatest.
Through the gentle healing power of herbs we can nourish all levels of our being so that we are more resilient in the face of everyday stress while feeling deep calm and joy as we create the lives we’ve always wanted to live. Herbs are potent yet gentle agents of change that can help us relax, rejuvenate, and recover in our own unique ways.
- Do you feel like stress, worry, anxiety, panic, or fears get in the way of you living your best life?
- Do you often feel drained, scattered, fatigued, or burned out?
- Is your sleep less than restful and rejuvenating?
- Do you experience moods and emotions that don’t feel right for you?
- Are you slow to recover, heal, or bounce back from an injury, illness, or stressful event?
- Is your mind foggy or do you feel a sense of being disconnected?
- Would you like to deepen your natural spirituality and work with plant magic?
Herbs like Ashwagandha, Eleuthero, Rhodiola, and Gynostemma can help build up the adaptive energy of our bodies and minds so that times of stress don’t wear us down. Plants like Nettle, Oats, and Hawthorn can help nourish the various parts of our being that help us maintain calm in any storm. And herbs such as California Poppy, Skullcap, and Catnip provide a gentle yet effective release of stress, anxious thoughts, and restlessness when we need them most.
Like our relationships with other humans, each of us will get along best with specific herbal allies. My goal is to help you connect to those special plants and forge a deep and profound healing relationship with them. Connect with me and find out which herbs are the right match for who you are as a unique person, and which will support and empower you on your own wellness journey.
