Happy Pills!

So, as many of you know I received my diplomas in Stress Management & Relaxation Therapy a while back. I love having all this knowledge that is so applicable in todays times. Being able to help so many people with such a prevalent issue in a Natural way is amazing. I still remember reading through all my assignments thinking ‘gosh how true’ or ‘don’t I know it’ & ‘I know 20 people like that’ & even ‘yup that’s me’. It was both enlightening & a handy wake up call. This was EVERYONE. I mean, come on, who knows someone who isn’t stress out, anxious, depressed, bored, uptight, behind on deadlines, grumpy, tired, overweight…. (yup they’re all related)…. People are always rushing around & stressed out to the max, & all of that rushing & stress can develop into Anxiety & Depression. I (just like the rest of you), have dealt with it for a long time, tried all the new fads, alternative treatments, & gotten even more Anxious & Depressed when something hasn’t worked the way I was hoping.

True to my saying that everyone is stressed, anxious, depressed or a bit of it all, Here is a new Chapter on my issues & how I’m dealing with them in a Natural & Safe way. This post is both a Review of a product that I’m using right now, as well as a link to a few posts I wrote about on Stress & Depression. The following posts Stress Part 1, Stress Part 2, & Stress Part 3 are where you can find some helpful info on dealing with & reducing stress. I hope you find some helpful information there.

As for the Product Review, here it is!

VEEVA

I found this at the store just before Christmas time. When I walked by the display, the pharmacist asked if I wanted to take some samples home to try. Um, Hello!!! After checking out the ingredients (Lemon Balm, Ashwagandha, Rhodiola, L-Theanine, Choline, 5-HTP, Black Pepper, AllSpice, Cloves & Cinnamon) I knew it couldn’t hurt! These were all well~known ingredients that could help with Anxiety & Depression.

I asked the pharmacists if he had tried it (personal recommendations go a long way). He told me he had & it worked like a charm. A charm eh? I guess I looked a little skeptical because he came right back & said that it in fact would work within 20 minutes for him…….. My brain made a little screeeeching sound. 20 minutes? That was too good to be true. But I took a handful of the little pills, put them in my pocket & went on my way.

(*as some of you may know, my family & I are in the middle of a huge life changing move (nearly 3 months now). We have to date travelled 1/2 way across Canada in search of a new home & life. While this is VERY exciting, it is also trying & down right exhausting. Our 2 boys are still not in school due to the fact that we don’t know where we want to settle, & the places we are staying in are small. Travelling all the time & all the unknowns can make any one a little short of poise, good humour & well, down right Nippy. Add to that being away from all of our family (besides the 4 of us) during the Holidays, well let’s just say I wanted to try these pills)

When I got home I decided that I needed to try them as soon as possible. It was 5pm, the box said to take one first thing in theΒ  morning & last thing at night. I took one anyways. I don’t know if it was 20 minutes or not, but it was pretty soon afterwards that I did feel something. I’m not going to say that a big dark cloud lifted & I could see the sun ( I wasn’t that far gone) ~ but I didn’t notice something.

The next morning was another big travel day for us, so I took a pill before I even turned my alarm off. Once on the road (an hour or two after taking the ‘happy pill’) I mentioned to my hubby that it felt like little bubbles were popping in my head. And every time one popped I felt a little clearer & calmer. I’ve never felt that before.

I’ve been taking these ‘happy pills’ since just before Christmas & I have to say that these are the one & only pills that I have found to truly work wonders! I’m only taking one a day (first thing in the morning), but I think that for my situation it’s enough. But I would recommend anyone feeling low to consider these!
