Dr Lise Alscholer who was interviewed by Dr Carl O Helvie on the Holistic Health Show this week offers some good information on natural substances to alleviate stress in her book the Definitive Guide to Cancer: An Integrative Approach to Prevention, Treatment, and Healing.
Stress can be a destructive force in all of our lives and natural substances to relieve or alleviate it should be welcome by all. She says the following herbs and nutrients have been shown to possess anti-stress properties.
Siberian ginseng has a normalizing effect on body homeostasis and improves immune functions and overall well-being.
Panax ginseng should be used under the supervision of a health care profession to prevent overstimulation. However, it can improve immune functioning, physical stanima, and mental acuity, and also increase resistance to toxic environmental substances.
Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) “also known as Indian ginseng, protects against stress-induced ulceration, lowers chronically elevated cortisol, enhanses energy, reduces anxiety, and can counteract stress-induced hyperglycemia.”

Some specific nutrients identified include:
Vitamin C-“helps normalize levels of cortisol and ACTH” (another stress hormone) when severe stress is present.
“Vitamin B1-protects the adrenal glands from functional exhaustion. ”
“Vitamin B2-enhances adrenal function and helps regulate cortisol levels.”
“Alpha-lipoic acid-helps prevent toxic accumulation in tissues (caution with certain chemotherapy drugs and radiation therapy.”
“L-tyrosine helps restore the ability to perform tasks under stress. ”
