How much of your life and energy is sapped by anxiety? Do you find your waking moments clouded by a sense of impending disaster, or outright fear—without any obvious cause? Or is it constant, indefinable worry and tension that leaves you on edge? Are you overreacting to minor setbacks and are you easily overwhelmed? If you are, then you are likely dealing with the joy-sapping effects of anxiety. In this article, we are going to look at the harmful impact of excessive anxiety in our lives, and a surprising, clinically studied botanical for anxiety that, in scientific tests, performed as well as prescription drugs! Anxiety is Common – I think most people can remember at least a few times when they’ve been anxious. Maybe it was right before giving a presentation at work, or the day they were ready to walk down the aisle with their soon-to-be spouse. As distracting and annoying as that level of anxiety can be, it’s to be expected now and then. But for all too many, it’s a crushing weight that they experience every day. In fact, approximately 40 million Americans ages 18 and older have an anxiety disorder. Anxiety Facts!! There are many different types of anxiety. But there is one solution – a specialized, clinically tested Echinacea extract. • Anxiety disorders affect 40 Million Americans age 18 and older • Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) affects 6.8 million adults – women twice as much as men • Social Anxiety Disorder equally affects men and women, about 15 million adults. The symptoms usually start at about age 13 – a socially difficult time for many people. Unfortunately, those same feelings can stick around for years before someone seeks help. • Specific phobias begin in early childhood, at about age 7. They affect 19 million adults.
For some, anxiety is just an occasional problem, cropping up during rush deadlines or family events. For others, it becomes worse over time, initially brought about by a bout of ill health or a traumatic event and requiring a full range of therapeutic intervention. It can lead to panic attacks, social phobias, and a host of emotionally crippling conditions. For most however, anxiety is simply a feeling at the edge of each day that something isn’t right, and a disproportionate sense of unease, even over what would, under other circumstances, be considered trivial. Conventional prescriptions to treat anxiety are almost as well-known for their side effects as for their degree of relief. And while there are many botanicals that have been recognized to varying degrees for anxiety some people may experience side effects and interactions from them as well. Plus, the time-frame for relief may seem too long with some of them. But there is another clinically tested, but unexpected herbal ingredient for anxiety: Echinacea. The Right Echinacea Gets Results This special Echinacea root extract is not the same as you’d use for colds and flus. It helps to relieve anxiety, stress, and feelings of being overwhelmed. It is a different, specialized root extract of Echinacea angustifolia, specifically studied for anxiety relief. The fact that it is a species of Echinacea at all may surprise you, though – just like it surprised the original researchers. This discovery came about at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. While analyzing different species of the botanical, they found that some of the plants contained compounds known cannabinoids that could influence brain chemistry, including cannabinoid receptors. Endocannabinoid receptors are known to influence the way the brain experiences anxiety, and have become a focus of behavioral research in their own right. After comparing these Echinacea species, only one – Echinacea angustifolia – provides you with levels of anxiety reducing compounds to be dramatically effective.
TERRY’S BOTTOM LINE: Anxiety affects everything we do. It makes us feel overwhelmed, destroys our ability to rest and sleep, harms our immunity, and stops us from experiencing joy. Unfortunately, prescription drugs for anxiety reduction often cause serious side effects. But there’s a better solution. A specialized, clinically-tested Echinacea calms the jitters and fears that take a toll on your mental and physical health. It also matches the symptom relief of a prescription, but without side effects. With this unique Echinacea extract, you will: • Reduce – or eliminate – anxiety • Stop persistent worrying • Eliminate unrealistic fears • Reduce physical symptoms associated with stress • Sleep better at night • Feel more comfortable in social situations • Meet challenges and daily obstacles with confidence Here is the formula I suggest: For relief of anxiety, I suggest 20-40 mg of Echinacea angustifolia once or twice a day.
