Anxiety Formula from Purify Your Body


Here's some information our Anxiety and Stress Formula! This is a really good formula for when you have an anxiety or panic attack. Let's tell you a little bit more about it and how to best use it to your advantage. First, the dosage and how to take it.

Dosage: Take 20-30 drops as needed, in juice or tea. You CAN take under your tongue if you want. It is just easier to get down when putting in juice. This formula is one to take only as needed. It has a sedative effect so please don't take before operating heavy machinery or driving a vehicle. Or before a test. :) 

Why are tinctures a preferred method of taking herbs? Because tinctures are potent! You don’t waste your money on pills that have been in the manufacturing process for months / years and lose potency! With an alcohol base, the tinctures pull out all the medicinal benefits of the plant, and preserve them naturally for you! They don’t lose potency over time. If you forget about this formula in your cupboard and find it in 5 years, you can still take it! It will still be potent! Isn't that cool?

A question I get asked a lot is about the dosage for kids or babies. This formula wouldn't be good for young children but can be used for teens or pre-teens who have anxiety issues. Remember, it will have a sedative effect, and will most likely make the recipient drowsy. 

Now, the ingredients. This formula is similar to my sleep formula, and can relax you if you take it in the middle of an anxiety or panic attack. If you are looking for something to calm down high stress, then the adrenal formula may be able to help with that.

Valerian: Valerian is a mild sedative and sleep-promoting agent that is often used as a milder alternative or a possible substitute for stronger synthetic sedatives, such as benzodiazepines, in the treatment of states of nervous and anxiety induced sleep disturbances. The current indication for Valerian is for restlessness, insomnia, nervousness and tension

Lemon Balm: Nervine: acts on the nerves. Sedative: calming agent. Mild Antidepressant: relieves feelings of depression. Mild Antispasmodic: reduces voluntary or involuntary muscle spasm. Carminative: gently calms the nerves. Diaphoretic: Induces perspiration. Lemon balm is a relaxing diaphoretic as opposed to a stimulating diaphoretic.

St. John’s Wort: This herb comes to the rescue for raw nerves and wounds of flesh. It calms anxiety, melancholy and tension of the mind, nerves and body, as well as menopausal irritability. Externally, its antiseptic astringency aids healing of flesh wounds like sores, cuts, bruises, burns, hemorrhoids & varicose veins, and helps to calm swelling, stop bleeding & prevent infection, especially with weak immunity. It is also useful externally for sciatica, arthritis, spine ailments & fybromyalgia – anything ‘nervy’.

Ginkgo: Promotes blood flow to the brain to improve memory and concentration, cognitive & brain function. In managing Alzheimer’s can serve to enhance cerebral circulation, promote memory and cognition, act as an anti-coagulant and anti-oxidant. It’s strong antioxidant effects can increase energy and be used in allergic inflammatory reactions

Skullcap: A generalist herb useful for a number of nervous system related problems; nerve tonic and pain remedy. Both skeletal and muscle relaxant. It is a relaxing sedative generally without the knock-you-out effect, making it useful for daytime use. This works well in formulas with other nervines and relaxants.

Hops: The main internal indications for Hops are sleeplessness from worry and anxiety, nervous gastropathies. Phytoestrogens have an anti-androgen effect in men to reduce sexual overexcitement (i.e. premature ejaculation). Can be used for restlessness associated with nervous tension and headache and/or indigestion. Great for restful sleep and restless leg syndrome.

Passionflower: Passionflower is commonly utilized to respond to insomnia, aiding transition into a natural sleep without any “narcotic” hangover. Passionflower works directly on the central nervous system to help lull us to sleep. It is important to note that Passionflower will not force sleep, but rather supports normal sleep that may have been disrupted by stress, muscle spasms, etc.
