It’s safe to say that although we live far superior lives than our ancestors, the lives we lead can be busy and frantic and often prone to stress and anxiety. It makes sense; we work more, we play harder and let’s not forget the dramatic impact that technology and social media has had on our lives! It seems that stress and anxiety go hand in hand. There are many options when it comes to treatment methods including medications. These drugs have many side effects and risks of dependency but are still widely prescribed. If you are looking for a drug-free way to ease stress and anxiety, then acupuncture combined with the right supplements could be the right path for you.
Acupuncture works extremely well in easing anxiety and stress, Acupuncture stimulates the nervous system and releases neurochemicals which reduce the effects of stress hormones, it’s those useful endorphins coming into play again, to make us feel better! One in particular is GABA Often referred to as the “Anti-Anxiety Molecule” GABA is an inhibitory molecule that slows down the firing of neurons and creates a sense of calmness. You can increase GABA naturally by running, playing an instrument, practicing yoga and meditation.
More patients are choosing Acupuncture, herbs and GABA Supplements over traditional treatments for stress and anxiety because the effects are felt much quicker. Therapy and medication require a long-term commitment of at least a couple of months before any real relief is felt, if at all. Many patients report relief from their symptoms after just one Acupuncture treatment. If you feel the world is getting overwhelming for you and your stress and anxiety levels are continuing to rise, take back control and investigate how Acupuncture could help you.
