Everyone has stress. Even happy events are stressful. It is even more challenging if one has anxiety and/or insomnia. It is difficult to be happy and healthy if one is overburdened with stress. If you are anxious and don’t sleep well it is difficult for your body to recharge and remain energetic. There are powerful natural therapies and nutritional supplements that can provide profound benefit. In fact, if you are missing or deficient in some of the key nutrients then you will continue to face challenges. There are many lifestyle factors that you can incorporate such as exercise, diet, positive mental visualization etc. that can provide powerful results. While some medications may be useful, medications do not address the other missing elements in your life.

Dr. Murray has written a book on the subject entitled Stress, Anxiety and InsomniaWhat the Drug Companies Won’t Tell You and Your Doctor Doesn’t Know. You can receive a FREE PDF copy of this book by going to DoctorMurray.com. His book can provide you with a good foundation of what you can do to relieve stress and anxiety. If you need to sleep better this book will be invaluable.

What is Anxiety?

Anxiety is an unpleasant emotional state ranging from mild unease to intense fear. But while fear is a rational response to a real danger, anxiety usually lacks a clear or realistic cause. Though some anxiety is normal and, in fact, healthy, higher levels of anxiety are not only uncomfortable, they can lead to significant problems.

“One of the great myths about natural medicines is that they are not scientific. The fact of the matter is that for most common illnesses there is greater support in the medical literature for a natural approach than there is for drugs or surgery,” says Dr. Murray.
