Possibly the most common condition in the world that affects our health is Anxiety. Most people experience Anxiety states for one reason or another. When these states become too frequent or accumulate over a long time period they can become powerful destructive forces that impact upon our health causing us to become unwell.

If Anxiety becomes more chronic(impacting upon our health and functioning for 6 months or more) it becomes more difficult to treat. There are many different approaches to dealing with and treating Anxiety that produce a medicinal effect.

Substances of various nature, legal and illegal have often been the most common option taken by sufferers. However, side effects are usually experienced when it comes to pharmaceutical medications, alcohol or other drugs.

At Boranup Forest Retreat a hollistic and natural therapy approach is the preferred method of addressing Anxiety. For example recent developments in science have focused on the connection between the gut and the brain. The gut has instantaneous affects from Anxiety and repetitive impacts from Anxiety disrupt its good functioning and create broader health problems.

It makes sense to give significant focus to the gut in light of these recent developments. For the past twenty plus years I have used slippery elm bark powder as a natural anti- inflammatory for the gut. It has been used effectively by many people for treating the inflammatory effects Anxiety contributes to within the gut.

Naturopaths especially recommend slippery elm along with other products such as marshmallow root and aloe vera products to sooth and treat the gut. There is plenty of scientific data which shows efficacy for these products in helping the gut in dealing with the impacts of Anxiety.

My experience with patients who have used such treatments in combination with other diet and lifestyle choices has contributed to my preference to using these products at Boranup Forest Retreat. Please feel free to comment on your experiences with products such as slippery elm, marshmallow root and aloe vera products for gut health and Anxiety management.
