Reduces Symptoms of Anxiety

Anxiety is a disorder that manifests when a person is living in stress/survival mode for a significant amount of time.  Our bodies were designed to handle short term stress, but over time, if stress and survival become the new normal, anxiety takes over the body causing physiological changes as well as an overactive mind.  Essentially, the mind is living in the future, oftentimes analyzing worst case scenarios making it impossible for the body to be at ease.  If you or your loved one believes anxiety is present, here are some common symptoms:

     -Persistent, excessive worry

     -Difficulty sustaining attention

     -Racing thoughts, restlessness

     -Easily frustrated, prone to having angry outbursts

     -Feeling nervous or tense

     -Trouble concentrating

     -Having a sense of impending danger, panic or doom

     -Trouble breathing

Relieves Symptoms of Depression

Depression is a disorder that feels like the body has been drained of all its energy.  It oftentimes feels like the body or the mind is paralyzed or has no more strength to go on.  The mind lacks enthusiasm for life and it spends much of the time living in the past or having regrets.  It is extremely difficult to break the cycle of depression because the emotions which are lower, i.e, sadness, guilt, shame or anger, signal the brain to have thoughts that match the emotions, then the thoughts signal the body to have emotions to match the thoughts.  Depression is a vicious cycle of hopelessness because it seems like there is no end in sight.  If you or your loved one believes depression is actively present, here are some common symptoms:
