I struggle from anxiety, high blood pressure, metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance and obesity! I never feel right anymore, I'm always worrying about my health!!! I have constant back aches, tense through my neck & shoulder and on an on.... can anyone tell me symptoms of stress and what you can do to alleviate the symptoms??!! Are there vitamins or any other herbal remedies??!!
I went to a neuropsycologist and had tests and they revealed I have PTSD and severe anxiety. I am overweight with depression and fatigue. One thing that helps me is to get up at the same time each morning.That helps a lot,you wouldn't believe how much !!!
I find walks,even short ones help a lot to alleviate the depression and anxiety.I am working on losing weight,but it isn't easy. I read my Bible a lot and pray,which is a help and a comfort.
Take each day as it comes. Don't worry about yesterday or tomorrow. I realize it is easier said then done, but being in the present helps you just be and it gives you an opportunity to be open to life.
"One method of assessing your magnesium status is to simply contact your health care provider and request detailed magnesium testing. Yet magnesium assessment is typically done using blood serum testing, and these tests can be misleading. Only 1% of magnesium in the body is actually found in blood, and only .3% is found in blood serum, so clinical blood serum testing may not successfully identify magnesium deficiency."
Ancient Minerals - Need More Magnesium? 10 Signs to Watch For
"A less known fact is that insulin also stores magnesium. But if your cells become resistant to insulin, you can't store magnesium so you lose it through urination.
Intracellular magnesium relaxes muscles. What happens when you can't store magnesium because the cell is resistant? You lose magnesium and your blood vessels constrict.
This causes an increase in blood pressure and a reduction in energy since intracellular magnesium is required for all energy producing reactions that take place in the cell.
But most importantly, magnesium is also necessary for the action of insulin and the manufacture of insulin. When you raise your insulin, you lose magnesium, and the cells become even more insulin resistant. Blood vessels constrict and glucose and insulin can't get to the tissues, which makes them more insulin resistant, so the insulin levels go up and you lose more magnesium."
