Stress. The Good News & Bad News…



Are you stressed out? How’s your energy? Are you depressed? Most people tend to be affected by different degrees of stress. But many are allowing themselves to suffer emotionally and physically because they cannot cope with simple, never mind severe, stressful situations…

Do you know that stress shows up as severe fatigue that in turn results in depression? The human body, is made to handle stressful situations, and can benefit from them also! It is a bit difficult to avoid all stress, however, and there are ways to balance the body to maintain a high level of health to survive and handle stress well.

Not ALL stress is unhealthy. If you strengthen and balance the body, this in turn helps us think in a more positive affirmative manner so we can use stress as a motivational tool in our lives.

What puts us at great risk for not being able to cope with severely serious stress? Lack of rest/sleep, work and money problems tend to be at the top of most lists, emotional problems, using ‘stress soothers’ such as coffee, alcohol, drugs and all types of tobacco. And what triggers physical stress for most? Low vitamin and mineral balance, low adrenal function, environmental toxins, allergies, and low blood sugar levels (hypoglycemia).

I recommend the following powerful combination to feed the adrenals, feed the nerves and stabilize mood to prevent stress induced illness and disease:


Feed your body what it is missing to deal with stress, and use life stresses to make you stronger…

I Love This Herb For Women And Men ~


Ah, yes… Damiana.  This is a leaf I love and recommend for All.  Damiana herb was first introduced in the USA in 1874, and has a long history of use in the folk medicine.  Scientifically called ‘Turnera diffusa, T. aphrodisiaca’, Damiana is known world-wide as a tonic that lifts one’s mood, enhances vitality, and is known to have aphrodisiac qualities that stimulate libido, for sexual health in general, and for increasing sex drive and sexual desire in Women and Men, including supporting sexual performance and sexual energy.

The part used is the leaf.  It is also known as a diuretic, for its hypoglycemic properties, its antibacterial properties; is widely used as a nerve tonic as it helps with nervous exhaustion so one can cope with stresses better; a mild natural antidepressant for mild depression.


Ancient Mayas and Aztecs used Damiana as a general tonic to improve health condition. When used on a regular basis, Damiana will help to improve mental stamina and mood. As a sexual tonic, it is a gentle acting remedy that can be taken safely always to enhance libido because it supports the glandular system.

It is interesting to note, however, that boosting sexual desire is not the only property of Damiana.  Native tribes also are known to use it to treat constipation and digestive problems, as well as gastric ulcers, menstrual irregularities, and bed-wetting in children and adults.  Damiana is a precious medicinal plant that I believe all can benefit from. ~

I recommend Damiana in a single herb formula, or have made sure it is a key ingredient in certain herbal formulas I recommend to patients and clients. Click the link below to obtain this exquisite herb and for more information:
