HELP!!! I can't shake that anxious feeling.
The circus called life.
We all have felt anxious at times, that panicky feeling that overcomes you and you have no idea why? Your heart beats like a speeding freight train down the track towards a big catastrophic explosion. Yes, more and more people feel this way every day. You try to sooth yourself with positive affirmations, trying to rewire your brain in thinking the care free way, like you used to do when you were a child. But the more you try the less you succeed in finding that peace of mind and you become even more anxious.
Today we are living in a fast paced society, everything is instant. We have less time to enjoy life. Every day we battle traffic to get to work. At work we have to perform, perform, perform. We nearly need to become superhero's and achieve the impossible. Battle traffic again and rush home, take the kids to soccer, ballet, swimming and the list is endless. Get home, fall in bed only to awaken and the whole circus starts over again. Phewww the thought of it can give one anxiety. This is the life we live on a daily basis.
Sometimes you have to ask yourself, why am I leading this life? The simple answer is we are all slaves to material things, luxury, stuff, more stuff. We want better jobs so we can buy more stuff, and buy more and more and more stuff until one day it just drives you crazy.
Your health deteriorates, you ask yourself why you are not feeling so energetic anymore, are you just getting older?
What does it mean for your healt?
Anxiety in itself can feel like a big fat tumor. It keeps on growing and you feel desperate to stop it! Your heart starts racing, you get palpitations. You feel scared most of the time, as if you are waiting for bad things to happen. Head aches, migraines, fatigue, nausea, weakness, forgetfulness, high blood pressure, heart disease, before you know it you can't function anymore. In your head you are screaming, there are a million thoughts at once attacking you. You have difficulty concentrating and you want to block the world out. Why did you suddenly feel this way, you were coping alright before?
Anxiety and depressive disorders are so prevalent these days. And less than careful doctors only add to that number. A doctor will write a prescription for an antidepressant within five minutes of talking with a patient complaining of anxiety or depression. And I'm talking about general practitioners, and sometimes it doesn't even take five minutes!
Anxiety can have a big impact on your health! Don't panic, magnesium will come to your aid.
Using Magnesium Glycinate for Anxiety
Magnesium Glycinate is a combination of magnesium and glycine which is often used as a health supplement. Magnesium is an essential mineral while glycine is an amino acid that helps the body absorb the magnesium even better. The combination is often used to fight fatigue, fibromyalgia and other symptoms found in the body.
However, magnesium glycinate is now being used to help suppress the conditions of anxiety in the body as well. The use of this supplement in treating what is considered a mental imbalance is a relatively new one, but arguably not all that surprising given just how potent magnesium is for our needs. Magnesium is a big relaxer. I have been successfully taking Magnesium Glycinate for 6 months now and it made a big difference in my day to day living. For some people who can't tolerate Magnesium Clycinate, you can also use a magnesium oil that you can spray on or under your feet or under your arms, also doubles as a natural deodorant.
