Herbal Ayurvedic Remedies for relieving occasional stress and anxiety

What is stress?

Stress is the body's reaction to challenging situations. It is our original flight or fight response when faced with a new experience. The body actually releases chemicals like adrenaline to help cope physically and emotionally. This causes the familiar reactions of a pounding heart, flushed face, sweating etc. Small amounts of stress are actually good since they help to protect us. We think more clearly to make a quick decision, are able to work faster to meet a deadline, push ourselves harder to accomplish a task. All of the body's systems work in a higher gear in a situation of stress. However when stress lingers day-in and day-out, when you are in constantly demanding situations, the body's systems are unable to function normally. In a state of chronic stress, the body feels that it is in a constant life-threatening situation and can no longer relax. Being in a constant state of alert soon causes the body's systems to break down.

Just about anybody including babies can get affected by stress. Over 89% of people have reported experiencing serious stress in their lives. Over 65% of visits to family doctors are for stress-related symptoms.

What causes stress?

Stress can be caused by internal and external factors. Stress is caused by large part on an individual's perception. For e.g. driving may not seem stressful to some but can be to others. Even positive situations such as getting married or starting college can be highly stressful. In fact any event that is perceived as a challenge can be stressful.

Other than external factors such as one's job or family demands, stress can also be caused by internal factors such as unrealistic expectations, obsessing, negative self-talk. Top Ten Stressful Life Events
