Dear Chantelle,

I've seen a huge increase in anxiety in my patients in the last few years so I decided to do a 2-part newsletter covering several tools to help you stay calm, happy and healthy. For tips on managing stress and anxiety with acupuncture and a healthier gut, see Part 1 HERE.

In this issue, learn a 2-minute heart coherence technique used worldwide and implemented by Navy seals, police and other emergency personnel to learn how to remain calm in harrowing situations.

I have also found several supplements that are game-changers for improving calmness, focus, and long-lasting energy. Many of us suffer from adrenal fatigue so I use adaptogenic herbs that nourish and restore vital energy.

Lastly, I've included two of my favorite time management masters below. In addition to improving your health to help reduce anxiety, streamlining and simplifying your systems is also crucial for your mental health.

Mastering Time Management

Brendon Burchard is a world-famous productivity master and best-selling author and speaker. This is a longer video but you can also find many shorter videos with great tips and strategies from Brendon. He also has a planner system.

Supplement Support for Anxiety

Have you heard the phrase "tired but wired"? That's when you need to rest but your busy brain keeps you stressed and awake. I personally use the following herbs and have seen great success in my patients by utilizing nutrients to nourish the adrenals and supporting brain function. Sometimes anxiety is from fatigue and inability to focus. Ask me if these are appropriate for your individual needs.
