It’s difficult to find some down-time and relax on most days, over the New Year and the holiday season, it gets even harder to make time to relax! 

We are often on an auto-pilot mode as we get through our days but there is much benefit to be had by taking a time-out and focusing a little more on relaxation. Our body needs rest and recuperation as much as it is naturally geared toward activity and movement. 

 

 

 

 

The right balance

Finding the right balance for you as an individual is paramount. What is “normal” for you may not be normal for someone else! Anxiety can quickly build if it remains unchecked, and the effects of anxiety and stress can be quite damning to our health overall. It can affect our physical, mental and emotional well being in numerous ways. 

When the body is on constant over-drive it weakens and becomes less adept at functioning at its best. For instance, it can cause issues such as becoming more prone to injury and illness, feeling depleted in energy, lowered mood and mental function, weakened digestive and immune function, skin disorders, and hormonal problems that affect the thyroid. 

All of us can suffer the physical and emotional effects of anxiety and stress, albeit differently. Men may internalize their symptoms, whilst women may be more apt at expressing it. Either way, we are all human and we all need to be mindful of the benefits of engaging in restoration and “chill” time! 

 

Anti-Anxiety foods

As well as ensuring we have some time for rest and stepping back from stressful living, some foods can help to promote calm and ease tension. Of course, food alone isn’t the answer to combating anxiety but it can form a big part of the process alongside other lifestyle changes! 
 

  • Brazil nuts. These nuts are supremely high in selenium and Vitamin E. Both Selenium and vitamin E have high anti-oxidant properties that can help to reduce or prevent cell damage. Selenium can improve cognitive function and support better thyroid health. 

  • Eggs. Eggs are a great source of Vitamin D, they are known as a super-food as they are so nutritious. Over winter time, vitamin D levels may be lower as we normally get a lot of Vitamin D from the sun- and we don’t see much of the sun in the darker days of the cold season! Some studies have noted the beneficial effects of Vitamin D on people that suffer from SAD (seasonal affected disorder) 

  • Dark Chocolate. Yay! Dark chocolate is very high in magnesium. Magnesium can potentially improve symptoms of depression, the darker the chocolate- the better! At least 70% dark chocolate is what you should aim for, some studies have shown that it can reduce the levels of perceived stress or anxiety. 

 

 

 

 

  • Lavender and Chamomile. Both of these herbal remedies have super calming qualities. Lavender is well known as a relaxation remedy and chamomile can potentially reduce symptoms of anxiety. Try them as a herbal tea infusion! 

 

 

 

 

 

Try to incorporate more of these foods where you can, and of course, there are many more! 

 

Alongside foods, many natural supplements can aid in promoting balance within the body, Dr. Seeds have created a product line to help people get on top of their health. Dr. Seeds is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon and physician specializing in all aspects of sports medicine and total joint treatments. 

With over 22 years of experience, Dr. Seeds is focused on providing the most innovative results to those seeking to maximize their performance, relieve injuries, and live a healthy lifestyle. Dr. Seeds is on a mission to provide people with supplements that provide solutions for a wide array of problems. Whether it’s low energy, anxiety, muscle aches or even building muscle, Dr. Seeds is there to help! 

Dr. Seeds was originally inspired to help when he realized that too many supplement companies have one true quality product, with many products that aren’t the same level of quality. Their goal is to provide unique solutions that are higher quality and lower price than alternatives.

 

 

Dr. Seeds Chill Pill

The best example of this is the Dr. Seeds Chill Pill. The Chill Pill is a long-lasting anxiety relief product that comes from a form of magnolia bark. 

Magnolia bark contains honokiol, a lignan isolated from the bark, seed cones, and leaves of trees belonging to the Magnolia plant. Honokiol in itself has calming effects, but they last for only 5-10 minutes, however, this is where the chill pill comes in! 

 

 


 

Dr. Seeds uses a derivative of honokiol called dhh-b (dihydrohonokiol-b) elongates the calming effect of magnolia bark. When taken, the chill pill immediately provides an anxiolytic effect that is similar to benzodiazepine. It was even described by one user as “meditation in a bottle.” 

There are approximately 15-30 servings in each container. You can take 1-2 chill pills in any situation that causes you anxiety or stress and feel a sense of calm and relief in less than 20 minutes. Please ensure that you do not take them with alcohol!  

 

Thyroid Support System

Stay on top of your health and supplement your healthier future. Make sure in doing so, your using products only of the highest quality, there are no short cuts here! Dr. Seeds uses a blend of 6 key ingredients to help re-balance the thyroid, here’s a brief overview of them! 

 

 


 

 

  • Guggulsterone Extract: A product of the guggul tree, Guggulsterone increases thyroid function and helps to boost your metabolism

  • Hydroxytyrosol Acetate: Naturally found in olive leaf, it is well known for its cognitive benefits. It also has a long list of advantages, including boosting your metabolism, raising your mood and helping to lift energy.

  • Theobromine: Theobromine is derived from “Theobroma”, derived from Greek roots and meaning “food of the gods.” You may recognize this ingredient because it can be found in the cocoa plant. Theobromine is one of the reasons chocolate (dark chocolate mainly!) has mood-elevating effects. 

  • L-Seleniumethionine: This organic type of selenium is found naturally in food. Research has shown that this is an important antioxidant mineral that has multiple benefits which include boosting healthy thyroid function. 

  • K2 Vitamin: K2, also known as menaquinones, is included in our formulation because it improves brain function and helps with circulation.

  • Potassium Iodide: Iodine is essential for the normal growth and development of the body, but iodine comes entirely from your diet. If you do not consume enough iodine, it can lead to serious health problems, including an under-active thyroid.
