Stress: it is certainly the most fashionable word of our time! There are various types of stress, both physiological and psychical, but for most of us, stress comes down to the nervousness we all know. Restlessness, anxiety, agitation, irritability and insomnia are symptoms that can undermine health: this syndrome can in fact cause fatigue, palpitations, digestive disorders or arterial hypertension.


To counteract stress it is possible to act on several fronts, with therapeutic and hygiene measures for both life and food. Having a balanced diet (limiting anxious foods such as coffee), regular physical activity and an acceptable work pace is already a good start.

If these measures prove to be ineffective, the easiest solution is to prescribe anxiolytics by the doctor, but with all the risks that this entails: drowsiness, addiction, memory problems, etc.


Phytotherapy is a valid alternative, which however requires some precautions: not all plants are devoid of contraindications, as has been found with St. John’s wort. It is also possible to consider the use of homeopathy, which in this case is of particular interest, because this therapeutic approach provides targeted responses according to the different types of stress.

Gelsemium should be administered to those who fear a future event and react with tremors, wet hands and a tendency to diarrhea, while Ignatia addresses the “lump in the throat, sobbing and palpitations” type. Argentum nitricum to the restless and impatient people who would like to finish even before they have started!

Each individual can therefore benefit from personalized treatment. There are also specialties that combine different basic substances, in order to respond effectively to the needs of most people. Natural remedies, free from the risk of addiction or overdose, homeopathic medicines are aimed at the whole family.

  1. The situation is even worse when you cannot avoid contact with people around you who are highly stressed.

  2. Stress is defined not as an illness in itself, but as a condition of tension which, if prolonged, can reduce the individual’s efficiency at work and lead to poor health, as well as becoming a safety risk, since reduces the perception of risk in general and alters the behavioral processes necessary for the protection of one’s own and other safety.

  3. Exercise regularly. Targeted exercises can help the body dispose of stress hormones and increase endorphins, chemicals of good mood.

  4. Not everyone responds to the action of stressors in the same way. For example, if you observe the reactions of people standing still to a traffic jam, you realize that not everyone is there yelling and honking but some take this opportunity to relax and listen to a podcast after calling at work and communicating that they will be late.

  5. There will even be someone who whistles happily because the traffic jam is a good justification for avoiding an unwelcome meeting without being forced to lie (which for some is very stressful!).

  6. Swimming, walking and biking have been shown to reduce stress. Swimming and biking have the advantage of less stress on the joints than running and, therefore, are perfect activities for those who suffer from joint problems or want to avoid them.
