Natural remedies for stress relief

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – A now famous Harvard study finds our minds negatively wander about 50 percent of the time, and the stress that results from this type of mind wandering can lead to digestive disorders, short-term memory loss, premature coronary heart disease, heart attacks and despair. At the same time, antidepressant usage has skyrocketed and doctors are now prescribing antidepressants for non-depression diagnosis such as anxiety, sleep and increased mental focus.

David Foreman, known to audiences as The Herbal Pharmacist says this is troubling since antidepressants also carry the FDA’s most stringent “black box” warning for life-threatening adverse effects. Foreman says the risks associated with antidepressants for many of these health complaints outweigh the benefits, and there may be more effective ways to tackle stress, mood, focus and sleep from nature’s pharmacy before pulling out the prescription pad. He will share with your audience the science behind three specific herbs from around the globe that can help increase focus, relieve stress and improve sleep (talking points and visuals include calming herbs from: South African succulent, arctic root and tropical flower).

David Foreman, known as “The Herbal Pharmacist,” started his career as a registered pharmacist and now uses his expertise in physiology, pharmacology and integrative medicine to educate consumers on cutting edge approaches to natural health and healing.
