Natural Remedies for Anxious Thoughts








Just about every day, I get messages in my inbox along the lines of “I want to get off my anti-anxiety medicine, what can you recommend for a natural alternative?” Well I am NOT a doctor, so I cannot give you medical advice, but I can say 1000% have hope. 

Medication can be life changing and a beautiful tool, and it certainly is a part of my story, but it does not address the root cause of why you are feeling the way you are feeling.

I often joke that I carry these tools around with me everywhere I go, because I truly do! In the car, on the go, in my purse, in my office, you’ll always find a little bottle or tincture or beverage that supports our brain and body’s response to anxious thoughts.

Can we remove every stressor, overwhelming thought, or anxious thought? NO! We are human, and we have feelings. The goal is to shift your body’s response, both big picture and in the moment, so that the waves don’t seem as intense, or you can begin to rationalize rather than allowing the overwhelm to consume you.

These natural remedies made with ingredients from nature are beautiful ways to ground your day.

There are two approaches to decreasing anxious thoughts naturally, which combine so beautifully:

  1. Getting at the root causes of anxious thoughts: this is deeper work I do with my nutrition clients so that we can address WHY your mind and body are reacting the way they are.
  2. In the moment support: tools you can use throughout the day to shift your body towards a state of balance, while quickly calming anxious thoughts naturally.

Rescue Stress Pastilles

Press reset and refresh with these fun floral, homeopathic “stress candies”. These calm the mental and emotional stressors so that the physical body can move through stress with more ease. These are great for in the moment relief, but do not address the root cause. 

See the Rescue Stress Pastilles in action and how I use them with my family.

Best for: grounding, transitions, big emotions or moments

Hemp Flower Extract

Pure, liquid gold, this works INSTANTLY. I love this for in-the-moment use, toddler meltdowns, if I feel overwhelmed, scattered or feeling anxious thoughts start to rise. I also recommend using it proactively if you know there is a time of day that is harder for you. For example, if you feel the most overwhelmed in the afternoon, then set a reminder on your phone and take this at 2 or 3 pm each day. 

CBD balances the endocannabinoid system, and the majority of our cannabinoid receptors are in our central nervous system and brain, so CBD can have such a positive, calming effect on stress, mood, overwhelm and anxious thoughts. The stressors and overwhelm will still be there, but your body and brain won’t notice them as much. It’s truly life-changing!

“I feel like this CBD is life changing and that sounds extreme until I miss a day and feel like I can’t handle life. 🙃” – Ester

Best for: in the moment, rapid relief, anxious thoughts, panic, overstimulation

Alexis Smart Flower Remedies

I adore her floral remedies and her kid’s line has supported my children so much. Floral remedies are such a light, gentle approach to holistic health. These help address emotions before they go deeper or are suppressed by the body—suppression is a huge form of underlying stress. She has so many beautiful remedies to choose from, but here are a few favorites.


Unburden is a beautiful remedy for the caregiver, or if you feel like you have the weight of the world on your shoulders. It will help lift your burdens, physically and emotionally, and bring a sense of lightness.

Peaceful Worrier

Peaceful Worrier calms anxious thoughts and “what ifs”—you’ll feel more confident navigating through these feelings rather than having them control you.

*You only want to use one flower remedy at a time. I know it’s tempting to get more than one blend, but you only want to choose one at a time.

Best for: grounding, release of emotions or past emotions, moving forward

CBD Nano Jellies

Think of this as your big picture approach, your daily “workhorse”. These are your baseline of balance and last a full 24 hours! Yes, these absolutely work in the moment to calm anxious and overwhelming thoughts, but what I love the most is how after consistent use you will actually calm inflammation in the body and restore the endocannabinoid system—this is addressing the root cause of stress and will shift your body towards health and healing.

Full vs broad spectrum? What’s the difference? Full spectrum contains trace and legal amounts of THC. Broad spectrum contains no THC! Full spectrum has more cannabinoids which can often make it a bit more effective for some. Think of full spectrum like your upgraded hotel room, broad spectrum is your regular, basic hotel room. Both work beautifully, it’s all about finding your right sweet spot.

“My mind is blown. These CBD jellies have calmed my daily anxiety and short fuse so much. I find that I’m not so reactive and the little things don’t annoy me.” – Wendy

Best for: big picture, baseline of balance, root causes, anxious thoughts, stress, nervous system balance

HTMA – Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis

Minerals are the spark plugs and responsible for endless functions in our bodies, both physically and mentally. Without the raw building blocks, your body and brain can’t function efficiently. Stress triggers minerals to be out of balance and when the body is in fight or flight mode, rational thought goes out the window.  Bringing minerals back into balance, shifts the body out of a chronic stress state so you have the capacity to think rationally and process emotional stressors.

Quinton Hypertonic

This little shot of pure mineral plasma can help lift you out of the “drained” and “depleted” sort of overwhelm or anxiety. I love these for an afternoon boost when you feel like you have nothing left to give.

Best for: feeling drained, energy, mineral balance

Magic Magnesium

One of the body’s anti-stress minerals, magnesium is used up more rapidly during times of stress, so it’s important to replenish. Magnesium deficiency is also a cause of underlying or hidden stress, so you can see how important magnesium is to calming anxious thoughts, stressors and overwhelm.

Stress is one of the biggest factors that increases anxious and overwhelming thoughts. This fun blue magnesium is a calming and hydrating addition to your day. You’ll love drinking it!

Best for: calming, energy, sleep, mineral balance, grounding

“LOVE my blue drink!I look forward to my blue drink every afternoon! I truly believe that it helps to keep my tired afternoon headache at bay. It is very light and refreshing. I have reordered several times and will continue to do so”. – Paige

My husband and I have both been drinking this for about 6 months, and we love it! We like to mix it with a little orange juice and ice in the mornings with our breakfast to make it even more fun! It makes us feel so refreshed and energized throughout our day. – Arlette

Throw 10 things away

Here’s a free “remedy” and it works! Clutter, both physical and mental, keeps the body stuck in fight or flight mode and is an underlying, hidden stressor on the brain and body.
