Anxiety, Depression and Stress

There are various and very individual reasons for feelings of depression, stress, and anxiety.  Some are more "world-oriented", meaning that living in this day and age is just downright too fast, stressful and nerve-wracking, which can lead to anxiety, depression or feelings of hopelessness.  Other reasons can be more personal and individual in nature.  As someone who has benefited greatly from therapy, this is what I of course would recommend first and foremost, but there are also herbal allies that can effectively help support you and your nervous system.

Rescue Remedy List & Descriptions


The following Flower Essences are included in the Rescue Remedy combination.   The following is a list of each of their meanings and how they can be of help to you:

Pregnancy Tea & Pregnancy Tea Plus


Herb Lore's Pregnancy Tea and Pregnancy Tea Plus are healthful and refreshing herbal combinations that are supportive and toning to the entire system before, during and after pregnancy. The regular Pregnancy Tea may be used throughout the entire pregnancy, and because of its high vitamin and mineral content, achieves its best results when used on a long-term, daily basis. Pregnancy Tea Plus is similar to Pregnancy Tea, with the addition of Squaw Vine, a late-pregnancy tonic which further helps to strengthen and nourish the uterus, preparing it for the upcoming work of labor and birth. Because this herb has some very slight oxytocic properties to it (meaning it has the potential to start uterine contractions, although it's not likely), it's recommended for use during the last six weeks of pregnancy only. Native Americans used this herb successfully throughout their entire pregnancies (hence the name Squaw Vine) - even so, we at Herb Lore like to work very conservatively, therefore, we recommend the Pregnancy Tea Plus only during the last six weeks.  (The regular Pregnancy Tea may be taken throughout the entire pregnancy however.)

Flower Essences (and Rescue Remedy)


In the late 1920's, Dr. Edward Bach, a renowned British scientist and physician, observed that his patients' healing and well-being were directly influenced by their state of mind and emotional health. He noticed that the personality, attitude and present outlook of a patient had a great deal to do with their being cured or remaining sick. He understood that "the personality of the individual is of even more importance than the body in the treatment of disease". He realized that, instead of treating the patient as a body with an illness, the patient needed to be treated like an individual. "Treat the patient, not the disease."

Testimonial

Pam, I just wanted to let you know how grateful I am for you and all you do. My little girl has lots of trouble sleeping and the non-alcohol Goodnight Combo and Teething Tincture are our saviors!  After she was born, I was doing really well emotionally but the last couple of months felt myself falling into depression and heightened anxiety. I do all the usual vitamins and supplements for it, and started taking my placenta (which I’d saved just in case!), but it wasn’t enough and I’ve been struggling so much. I decided to add Happy Day Tincture and Vitex and within a week started feeling a significant shift.  It’s not perfect yet but I feel some hope and like there’s definitely been a turn around. Thank you for all you do and the products you create with such care!  N.R.
