Supplements for Anxiety Relief

Anxiety ReliefUnfortunately, anxiety is one of the most common disorders. In fact, it affects millions of people in the U.S. While the best way to cope with severe anxiety is by seeking the support of a mental health professional, there is research to suggest certain supplements can calm your nerves. If you’re looking for a Blackhawk chiropractor, we can help review your nutritional needs. But before adding supplements to your routine, make sure to first check-in with your doctor, especially if you take prescription medications. Here are some of the most promising supplements for anxiety relief…

Vitamin D

Researchers have established a link between mood regulation and vitamin D levels, but further research is needed to fully understand the connection. Our bodies produce vitamin D through exposure to sunlight, but what many people don’t realize is that vitamin D is actually a vital hormone. Aside from spending time outdoors, you can get more vitamin D by eating fatty fish, like salmon.

Magnesium

Magnesium is one of the minerals that the human body relies on to maintain balanced electrolytes that are essential for health. In addition to studies that suggest it may ease anxiety, magnesium can lower blood pressure and reduce inflammation, plus it’s a part of hundreds of complex biochemical reactions inside your body. Green leafy vegetables are high in magnesium. However, this is one supplement it’s important not to overdo because excess levels are dangerous.

Omega-3 Fats

Omega-3 fats are present in foods like vegetable oils, walnuts, oysters, and fish. They’re vital for brain and heart health and may be able to help in the fight against depression and anxiety. Our bodies aren’t able to make these important fats from scratch, though, so we need to source them from a healthy diet.

Vitamin B Complex

Did you know your body needs eight different kinds of B vitamins? They help with many important jobs in your body, like creating new blood cells. Scientists have noted that low levels of B-12 may also be linked to depression and anxiety. Fortunately, many foods contain B vitamins. For example, grains, dairy products, and fruits, just to name a few.

Chamomile

While chamomile isn’t a vitamin, this sweet flower has been used for thousands of years for its soothing effect. It’s available as an essential oil, tea, and supplement.

The Power of Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic affects every part of our body.  Why?  Because our nervous system controls all aspects of our being, from proper organ function to the sensation of pain.  So it only makes sense that we will begin to feel pain, discomfort, or notice various symptoms when our nervous system isn’t functioning correctly.  Chiropractic does not rely on harsh medication or invasive surgery to treat health-related ailments, instead, it focuses on the nervous system — correcting nerve flow blockages in the spine and other areas of the body, to allow the body’s powerful natural healing power to flourish, flow, and repair itself naturally.

Beautiful, clean, and spacious. The place just feels good to be in. Dr. Mahsa is a top-quality chiropractor (and person) who deeply cares about her clients and their results. She is knowledgeable on many levels and provides a ‘mamma bear’ experience that is both comforting and caring. I feel that I am in good hands while here. I will recommend this place.  P.S. The music she plays is awesome!

Dr. Mahsa is the kind of person you want to refer all your friends to.  She treated my chronic back pain using a combination of techniques that was way more effective than anyone I had seen before.  She has treated me, and now both my sons, for over two years.  The office staff is great too.  Friendly and professional and very welcoming.  I always leave here feeling good.

Dr. Mahsa has been wonderful for my family and I since day one. I was referred to her by a close friend and was glad I went to see her. I’m at the gym at least 5 days a week and my back pain was interfering with my workouts and sleep. She completed an assessment and I was back on my feet in no time. Since I had such a great experience with her I brought my entire family in and they’ve been feeling great with her adjustments as well. It’s difficult to know who to go to when there are so many different chiropractors out there. I’m known to research for the “best” out there and I believe I’ve found it! I recommend you go see her.

Dr Mahsa is amazing  Had a great experience here. She is very knowledgeable and friendly.  This is also a very nice chiropractic office very large and filled with lots of high tech devices.  She did a great job with a fully completed assessment on my body and was able to relieve lower back pain.  Enjoyed all the different machines that were used to help make me feel better and relieve and prevent any future pain.

Jones K., Walnut Creek, CA

Dr. Mahsa immediately put me on an aggressive therapy and now I’m back on my training and have actually improved my time per mile. Dr. Mahsa and her staff are friendly, professional and so DAMN good at what they do. She’s like a family to us.
