Supporting Stress

Adrenal Support is a wonderful formula to nutritionally support the adrenal glands. This formula helps to give you stability and strength during times of stress. The Adrenal glands are small glands located on top of the kidneys. They produce a wide variety of hormones including cortisol, which helps regulate the immune system and control inflammation. Cortisol also regulates how your body converts fats, proteins and carbs into energy – because of this, when your adrenal glands become sluggish chronic fatigue can set in. The adrenal glands also produce the hormone adrenaline which helps your body respond to stress, and aldosterone which regulates blood pressure by regulating salt and water levels in the body. In addition, these powerful little glands can also produce DHEA and pregnenolone which can be converted to sex hormones. These hormones are helpful for men and women in regulating hormones as they age, as pregnenolone and DHEA can be converted to estrogen, progesterone and testosterone by the body. High stress and weak adrenal glands can be a hidden reason behind menopausal symptoms in women or low testosterone in men.

Adrenal Support formula provide specific vitamins, minerals and herbs which support optimal adrenal function and recovery from long term stress. Adrenal Support formula will help you respond to stress better, improve immune function and recover energy levels after prolonged stress. It’s easy to understand how prolonged stress can cause so many problems in our body.

Adrenal Support contains bovine adrenal glandular substance, vitamins B1, B2, B6, pantothenic acid and vitamin C, plus zinc, potassium, magnesium, protease, borage (Borago officinalis) oil powder, licorice root (Glycyrrhiza glabra) and schizandra fruit.

Some other great formulas from Nature’s Sunshine to support stress and your adrenal glands are AdaptaMax, Energ-V, Nutri-Calm or B-Complex, Chinese Trigger Immune, Chinese Nervous Fatigue, SUMA combination, Eleuthero and licorice root.


The Power of your Personal Vibration

January 4, 2019

Valerie Greguire, CH, Natural Health Consultant

Everything in this beautiful world that we live in has a frequency, a vibration which it resonates at. We also have personal vibrations. When we are at peace and happy everyone around us can feel it and are drawn to us. When we are stressed and anxious our personal vibration becomes distorted, we are like an instrument that is out of tune. This blocks the flow of energy though the body and affects our moods and relationships, as well as, our ability to maintain good health.

There are many ways we can bring our personal vibration back into balance, such as shifting our focus from fear and worry, to hope and joy. Simply thinking positive thoughts, laughing or smiling can help you shift your vibration in all areas of your life. However, if we have neglected our imbalances for too long, we may find ourselves feeling stuck, depressed, and anxious. In situations like this we can use some help to “find our center again”.

Herbs and foods are considered vibrational remedies, they can be used to activate, re-balance and clear energy patterns in the body. Simply making a shift from eating junk food to healthy whole foods, can help you to feel more positive. Your energy improves because the vibration of your food you eat has improved. Just like listening to some music makes you happy, while other music may leave you depressed – everything carries vibrations.

Herbal remedies can help re-balance the body’s vibration. For stress and anxiety, I like to take a combination of Nature's Sunshine's Nutri-Calm and Anxiousless.

Nutri-Calm provides B-vitamins and vitamin C to nourish the adrenal glands and support the body during times of stress. This formula has a base of herbs which have adaptogen properties which help support recovery from long term stress, boost the immune system and increase stamina and endurance. The formula also contains nervine herbs which release tension and nourish the nervous system. This formula helps you to feel calm and better able to handle day to day stress. I’ve used Nutri-Calm for the past 20 years for myself, friends and clients. People always remark how quickly it works and how much better they feel on it.

Anxiousless contains Zembrin, a patented form of the herb sceletium tortuosum, which has been shown in clinical studies to help to calm the mind, improve cognitive function, improve mood and ease nervous tension. The amino acid l=theanine is added to the formula to help increase alpha brain waves to keep you calm and focused. Thiamine, magnesium and zinc are also added for additional support for the nervous system.

Zembrin is interesting because it has the effect of blocking the loss of serotonin from the brain, which allows it to function like a natural anti-depressant. The herb sceletium tortuosum, also known as kanna herb, has a long history of use of 300 years by the native people of South Africa. Zembrin, the concentrated extract of this herb, has been studied for the past 10 years by international scientists and doctors. It is considered fast acting and very safe. I like this formula because when I feel anxious it brings me back into balance quickly and I feel more cheerful. In addition, I find it really helps you to get a restful night’s sleep when you have a lot on your mind.

We gain power in our lives when we become aware of the vibrations we are holding. As you begin your day, become conscious of the thoughts which run through your head. Ask yourself “what is my mood? Where am I focusing my thoughts and energy? What vibration am I holding? Am I angry, or feeling sorry for myself? Or am I joyful and standing in my own power?” Choose to become conscious of the colors you place on the canvas from which you create your day. For if you are unconscious of the colors you choose, or of the brush strokes you make, you allow circumstances or other people to dictate what manifests in your day. May you choose instead to stay centered in your heart, and connected with Spirit, so that you may become a conscious creator of your life.

Blessings, Valerie
