Natural Home Remedies for Stress

Snack on celery

• They have a widely recognized sedative effect.
• So eat your celery, by the stalk or chopped into a salad.

Chew on cherries
• They soothe the nervous system and relieve stress.
• Eat them fresh or any way you like them.

Dine on lettuce
• This stress-reducing veggie has a sedative effect.
• A small amount of lacturcarium which is a natural sedative, is found in the white, milky juice.
• This milky juice oozes from the lettuce when the stalk is snapped.

Bathe in baking soda
• A soothing bath in baking soda and ginger can relieve stress.
• Add 1/3 cup ginger and 1/3 cup baking soda to a tub of hot water and enjoy the soak.

Eat oats
• Oats fight off the high cholesterol.
• Oats produce a calming effect that fights off stress.
• Use them in bread recipes and desserts or for thickening in soups.
• Just eat a bowl of oatmeal.

Dine on pasta
• When eating a late-night meal, choose pasta.
• This causes a rise in the brain chemical called serotonin.
• This chemical has a calming effect on the body.
• Rice produces the same effect.

Soothe with salt
• Try this muscle-soothing bath with salt to wash stress away.
• Mix 1/2 cup salt, 1 cup Epsom salts, and 2 cups baking soda.
• Add 1/2 cup of the mix to your bath water.
• Store the dry mix in a covered container and away from moisture.

Soak after some sesame oil
• Warm a few ounces of sesame oil and rub it all over your body, from head to toe.
• Sunflower and corn oil work well, too.
• After your massage, take a long, hot soak in the tub.

Eat whole-wheat bread
• It’s high in the B vitamins, which sustain the nervous system.
• Other B-rich foods include:
– Whole-wheat pita bread
– Whole-grain cereal
– Pasta
– Brown rice
• For a good stress-fighting diet, about 60 percent of the daily calories should come from starchy foods which should be taken divided among the meals.

Cook with cardamom seeds
• These seeds are said to freshen the breath, speed the digestion, and cheer the heart.
• These seeds also bust the stress.
• To make a tea, cover 2 to 3 pods with boiling water and steep for ten minutes.
• Cardamom pods can be added to a regular pot of tea, too.
• This will derive the calming effect.
• Crush the pods and add to rice or lentils before cooking, or use in a vegetable stir-fry.
• Cardamom seeds are a good addition to cakes and biscuits.
• Instead of pods, use 1 teaspoon powdered cardamom, which is available in the spice section of the grocery store.
