Stress and anxiety seem to have found a permanent home in the daily lives of millions of Americans. Our “always on” culture has led to a significant increase in prescription drug abuse. Thus, we are observing never-before-seen increases in cases of dependence, long-term impaired cognitive function, irregular heartbeats, heart failures, and lethal seizures. Amidst the many legal national arguments about the sale and handling of prescription drugs, individuals suffering from mental health disorders, such as recurring panic attacks, are desperately searching for natural remedies.
