Remedies for Stress

By Madhusudhan Tammisetti

The modern man's lifestyle is fast-paced, stressful, and full of responsibilities. It's no surprise that it all adds up to an overwhelming level of stress. A non-specific physical reaction to any desire for change is included in the literal definition of stress. While traumatic life experiences play a significant role in the genesis of stress, everyday living difficulties such as jobs, relationships, and other troublesome areas of life may also cause stress to have an adverse impact on the mind and body.

Chiropractic care for stress relief may include relaxation or taking rest from your busy schedule, massaging, deep breathing, and exercise.

Effects of Stress

When stress levels reach a certain level, it may affect the body's chemistry as well as immunity. Stress may result in muscle aches and tension, fatigue, upset stomach, headaches, trouble falling asleep, chest pain, and in severe instances, ulcers.

Stress has a direct impact on one's psychological state. Other exhausting negative feelings, such as anxiety, restlessness, irritability, sorrow, overly high anger, depression, and social withdrawal, are linked to higher levels of stress. Obesity, hypertension, and various cardiac problems are all typical side effects of too much stress.


L-Theanine, an amino acid, increases alpha brain wave activity, which promotes relaxation and tranquility, improves mental alertness and concentration, and reduces stress. Green tea leaves contain high levels of this amino acid. Furthermore, L-Theanine is primarily responsible for the synthesis of gamma-aminobutyric acid, a biological neurotransmitter that promotes relaxation.

Chamomile is a plant that has a calming effect on the nervous system as a whole. It works as a muscle relaxant and improves sleep quality. Making chamomile tea and drinking it four times a day may help reduce high-stress levels.

Chiropractic Care for Stress Relief

A chiropractor may suggest deep breathing to help soothe nerves and other nervous system disorders. Deep breathing is a great method to calm down when you're feeling anxious, frustrated, or stressed. It may also help with anger control. It gives your body a chance to disconnect from the thoughts that are bothering you while also assisting you in focusing on the breathing pattern. Deep breathing also helps in filling your stomach with air, which may make you feel better even if you're sad or in not good mood.

A chiropractor may use massage therapy to relieve stress. The value of a good massage in times of stress cannot be overstated. It's an excellent stress reliever and reduces body aches by relaxing muscles. Massage, according to traditional Chinese medicine, opens up clogged energy pathways and significantly lowers stress levels. Warming the hands before rubbing a specific region of the body improves the effectiveness of the massage.

Chiropractors may advise you to do exercises for stress relief. Even just a walk may do wonders for your body. It helps you sleep better at night.
