Glossary for Calm

Below is a curated list of some of the most effective herbs, supplements, and therapies for inviting more calm into one’s life. Please look at this information as a starting point, instead of a complete source for your own research as some of these have contraindications. Work with your doctor or naturopath to assess if these could be right for you! Some of these things listed are more accessible than others.

Keep in mind that you don’t need anything outside of you to heal, everything you need is within you! Well, unless you need more amino acids, magnesium, or vitamin D, low levels in those can really mess you up! Still, sometimes we are in need of some extra assistance and the investment in your health is worth it. Also, it’s imperative to note some of these therapies, herbs and supplements are not for everyone. Use your intuition and choose some things to research that sparks your interest.
