Mind. Body. Heart.
We hope you enjoyed last month’s premiere issue of our Coping with Depression and Anxiety Newsletter. This month we want to provide valuable insight on how our mood and state of mind affect the body, specifically our heart.
Most people know that stress is a contributing factor for heart disease, among other ailments. Did you consider that constant worrying about things you cannot control may also be bad? Anxiety is difficult to describe concretely because it has so many different symptoms and degrees of intensity.
It is often unfocused, vague, and hard to pin down to a specific cause. This may be because the anxious individual is not consciously aware of the original source of the feeling. Whatever the cause, anxiety can have a devastating effect on the human heart.

Have you ever noticed that the more you smile the better you feel? Most people are aware of that fact but most also think it is a psycho-cure… something that happens because you believe it will. But we really do have the physical power to control our moods and emotions.
Sure, we all have those days when we feel down, unhappy, and we lack motivation. Sometimes we’re just frustrated with a specific situation. But it is true that something as simple as smiling can help put your mind at ease again.

Can You Worry Yourself to Death?
How the human heart is affected by anxiety
We’ve all heard about the important connection between mental and physical health. But do we fully understand the relationship our organs have with our state of mind? Research is showing how physiological reactions to stress and anxiety can take a huge toll on our hearts.
When we experience symptoms of anxiety, what we feel is the body’s preparation to face danger. Elevated heart rate, high blood pressure and the release of stress hormones into the blood are normal reactions that occur in our bodies when faced with stressful situations and anxiety.

Facial Expressions May Affect Your Mood So… Say Cheese!
Can you believe that something as simple as flexing your facial muscles into a smile can provide instant health benefits? Numerous studies show a connection between facial expressions and mood.
Even when frowns are prevented from occurring with a cosmetic procedure, studies have concluded that the inability to frown actually improved a subject’s mood and decreased symptoms of depression.
Dr. Eric Finzi, a medical director and president of Chevy Chase Cosmetic Center in Chevy Chase, Md., and Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery Associates in Greenbelt, Md. Chase, theorizes that the reason for this is the constant feedback going on between facial expression muscles and the brain.

Tips to Kick Start Your Energy Level
Low energy levels can really put a damper on the pleasure you find in your life. Decreased energy levels keep you from enjoying your daily activities and even leave you drained after performing basic routine activities. The causes of low energy are numerous, but the most common cause is stress.
Stressful situations typically leave the average person feeling drained and even depressed. When not handled properly, stress can cause a number of health problems. Managing stress is therefore essential. It requires a lot of energy and the right approach.

"I give my 8 year old son Focus, MindSoothe, and PureCalm. Is it ok to mix all of them in the same glass of orange juice in the morning, or do I need to separate them out into their own individual servings? Thanks for your help. I am afraid they will lose their effectiveness if they are mixed together, but it's such a pain to separate them into three different glasses of orange juice. Thanks a lot!!!"
You will be pleased to know that it is perfectly safe for you to mix these remedies due to the high safety profile of our ingredients.

"I have anxiety and severe difficulty sleeping (chronic). I am currently taking MindSoothe, Triple Tonic Nerve Complex and PureCalm which has really helped [me]. What remedies can I take to help me sleep that are safe to take while I am taking the above mentioned remedies?"
We can highly recommend our SerenitePlus and Serenite LT to support healthy sleep patterns and the optimal balance of sleep-related hormones involved in the sleep cycle..
While SerenitePlus™ will induce drowsiness when taken, Serenite LT™ is a long term remedy which works on underlying issues surrounding the balance of sleep-related hormones such as serotonin and melotonin.
Serenite-LT is an effective long term solution. With regular use, results should be noted within 3 to 5 weeks. During this initial period while Serenite-LT is taking effect, many people like to use our SerenitePlus Drops to induce a pleasant sense of relaxation and drowsiness before bedtime.
