Lemon Balm The Calming Herb for Anxiety, Stress and Insomnia

Anxiety affects many people young and old. It is more than just worrying about your financially situation, stressed about work or not wanting to go to school. It is an overwhelming feeling that slowly becomes consuming in your everyday thoughts, actions and wellbeing.

There are many ways we can assist our bodies to help us on the road to recovery quicker. (more…)
