Homeopathic Stress Relief is a safe and natural option to manage stress.
Stress can be hard to manage, especially after the holiday season. A week of relaxation can feel like NOTHING, after re-entering the day to day events of a stressed of life. Homeopathic stress support can seem so simple, it almost sounds too good to be true.
Not so. Homeopathic remedies for Stress Relief are an untapped goldmine of safe support.
Isn’t everyone’s life in need of some type of stress management? This is our modern world.
Stress seems like it’s own environmental toxin.
According to a 2018 Gallup survey, over half of the American population experiences stress daily. It’s safe to assume those numbers have significantly increased since the onset (and continuation) of a global pandemic.
Unfortunately, stress can manifest itself in many ways:
- Physically, with increased colds and flus
- Mentally, with brain fog, and word finding trouble
- Emotionally, with mood swings and feelings of anxiety
Some people might experience muscle tension, headaches, changes in sleep schedule, appetite fluctuations, and even shaking. While others are better able to describe their symptoms as shame, anxiety, loneliness, or anger.
This is where homeopathic stress relief remedies excel. Homeopathic remedies are tinctures that are a form of natural healing remedies. Homeopathy, or homeopathic stress relief remedies, are a holistic approach that hones in on symptoms to provide relief in a safe and non-invasive way.

Understanding Homeopathic Remedies
Homeopathic remedies are a type of bioenergetic therapy that has been used for over two centuries. This self-help method is often used in conjunction with westernized medical practices. Homeopathic healing works to re-establish internal balance by alleviating resonating toxins, food and environmental sensitivities, and nutritional or hormonal imbalances.
It is based on the theory that “like cures like.” Remedies involve exposing a person to a small dose of a substance that would cause the same symptoms if ingested in larger amounts. Homeopathic remedies are offered in drops, sprays, and even supplements.
We don’t “cure” or “treat” here at CBH Energetics. We uncover underlying energetic stressors that block organ systems, and your holistic wellness. We have done this for so long, that we train holistic practitioners to use bioenergetic testing too!
Here are some of the best homeopathic remedies for stress relief.
This remedy is suitable for sudden and intense stress that is associated with a past experience or trauma. It is often accompanied by emotions of anxiety, panic, or fear. People suffering from this type of stress might experience rapid heartbeat or inflammatory conditions, such as severe joint pain.
Argentum Nitricum is a good homeopathic remedy for emotional stress due to anticipation. These feelings of foreboding are often concerning an upcoming event, job interview, or exam. People experiencing this type of stress might feel flighty and easily excitable.
Arsenicum Album is a homeopathic remedy for stress caused by a desire for perfectionism. These feelings can be related to any aspect of a person’s life where they feel a “lack of.” People suffering from this type of stress often experience eating imbalances or resonating toxins in their skin and respiratory system.
This remedy is a great option for stress related to feelings of inadequacy. Unlike perfectionism, where someone feels a need for more, people with this type of stress lack faith in themselves and their abilities. People might experience general fatigue, brain fog, or shakiness.
Ignatia is often used as a remedy for stress imbalances that result in extreme emotional highs and lows. This might occur when someone is homesick, ashamed, or recently experienced harsh criticisms. People with this type of stress might come across as jealous, weepy, or depressed.
This remedy addresses stress born out of health concerns. It is most common in people who have either received a bad health prognosis or believe themselves to be unwell. Common behaviors associated with this type of stress include excessive grooming and other obsessive habits associated with extreme cleanliness.
Kali Phosphoric is a great homeopathic stress remedy for mental exhaustion. People experiencing this type of stress often feel overworked and easily overwhelmed by their surroundings. They might find themselves triggered by loud noises or large crowds.
This type of remedy is good for long term stress. This stress is usually caused by large life events such as a family death or physical trauma. People experiencing this stress often feel worse when offered sympathy and kindness.
This stress can manifest itself into anything from headaches and insomnia to digestive and emotional imbalances.
Nux Vomica can be used as a homeopathic stress remedy for those experiencing aggression or rage. It is common in competitive or ambitious people who feel they are being held back or judged unfairly.
This homeopathic stress remedy is suitable for those feeling exhausted or weak. These people cope with stress by crawling into their shells. They tend to avoid communication and can come across as rude or unresponsive.
Picric Acid is a homeopathic remedy for those with bioenergetic stress related to mental and physical exhaustion. They might feel physically weak or spend a lot of time sleeping.
This homeopathic remedy is for people who feel emotionally drained or unloved. It is often a result of hormonal imbalances, such as those experienced after childbirth or during puberty and menopause.
Stramonium and Valerian Root
Sometimes stress imbalances manifest themselves in dreams. Stramonium is a natural remedy for recurring nightmares. Whereas Valerian Root is for those who cannot sleep or avoid sleeping due to the endless streams of thought.
Step up Your Homeopathic Stress Relief
There are lots of other holistic ways to relieve stress that can complement your homeopathic remedies.
Take a moment to look at your diet and exercise habits. Adding in more vegetables, fibre and decreasing processed foods can help alleviate stress, by fortifying your gut microbiome. Stress affects the gut, your digestion AND the microbiome.
Foods like these can alleviate the stress associated with overeating or malnourishment. Those Vitamins and Minerals we talked about earlier? When stress is LESS, your gut can absorb those nutrients more effectively.
Exercise will not only get your blood flowing, but it helps release the stress that has manifested physically within your body. Most people place unrealistic expectations on themselves, when it comes to exercise. Taking short movement breaks keeps your blood flowing, helps clear your mind, and is easy to do.
If you have trouble with starting and stopping habits, overeating, or stress management, book a practitioner call. Just 30 minutes with one of our trained coaches can get you started without feeling overwhelmed.
Other holistic ways to relieve stress include:
- Assessing your Vitamins with our bioenergetic testing
- Adding in Minerals to support your Nervous System
- Herbs that are Adaptogens
- Massage Therapy for relaxation
- Aromatherapy (Not sure what essential oils are for you? Our Awareness Scan can help!)
Some people might also find peace through exploring meditative techniques such as deep breathing or body scans.
For others, this type of practice might seem tough, at first. We are all individual, and bioenergetics recognizes this.
**It’s important to note that changing your health routine should only be done after you’ve consulted with your doctor and/or homeopathic practitioner.**
The Concept of Balance
The term balance is used in regards to stress, lifestyle and work/home life.
What IS balance, anyways?
We think it looks like any practice that isn’t extreme, and helps you feel content MOST of the time. We all experience moments of anger, anxiety and discontent. When these moments are transient, and you have the skills to recognize and release these feelings, we think THIS is balance.
Balance feels different for everyone!
As stress continues to increase in prevalence around the world, more and more people are turning to holistic solutions for relief. Homeopathic stress relief options look at the symptoms associated with stress as a means of determining a suitable remedy.
We carry a wide variety of products that can help you regain energetic balance. Check out our selection and feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.
