Considering everything we do is stressful, understand that
there is good stress and bad stress. Eating more under stress
and becoming emotionally disturbed with cravings for more
food triggers our emotions even further. For
our crazy lifestyle where the whole world is churning around
Flowers Rescue Remedy, which comes in a tincture
or spray, is very helpful. For those spur of the moments
when one needs calming, Bach
Flowers Cherry Plum helps. Stress factors can include

Support with theanine (a unique amino acid found

blood clotting for that better take Wobenzym.
Stress also releases glucose into the blood stream, causes
