Natural Relief for Anxiety and Stress - A Practical Guide, is a book that has enormous potential to help people have a better quality of life. The authors, Gustavo Kinrys and Alexandra Gold, provide proven strategies in an easy and practical way. The book begins by explaining stress and anxiety, the importance of addressing the symptoms, and also the dangers of ignoring them. After providing the foundational information, the authors then describe in detail the different remedies and therapies for each situation. Near the end of the book, they provide tables for the different remedies that had been previously discussed.

I chose to read this book because the past two years have taken a toll on my health, and I thought I might gain some helpful information. I am grateful I made that decision. I liked that the authors explained exactly why conventional medicine isn’t always the answer, and appreciated that most of the suggested alternatives were either low-cost or free. I also respected that the authors repeatedly suggested talking to a health care professional before adding any supplements to their diet. The book was easy to read, as it did not delve into too many medical and technical terms, which are roadblocks for the average person. One section that I found invaluable was on breathing techniques. Many people, like me, think that deep breathing will help reduce anxiety. According to the authors, this can be harmful. A panicked person is probably already over-breathing and might hyperventilate under those circumstances. Instead, think of breathing slowly and peacefully.

Additionally, there is no need to bookmark a page or write any information down because the authors have provided tables of the different supplements and methods used. They also created a grocery list of the foods that had been previously introduced. I thought this was extremely helpful.

There was only one minor thing I found bothersome. I did not understand why there was both a preface and introduction because they said mostly the same thing, which was that people did not understand the long-term damage that stress has on the body.

I believe this book was professionally edited. I found only a handful of errors, which did not detract from my reading or the importance of fully appreciating the advice this book offers.

So, with all things combined, this book easily rates 4 out of 4 stars. I would recommend it to anyone suffering from stress and/or anxiety. I also recommend it to those who would like to find a simple and natural approach to alleviating symptoms, and who are looking for a better quality of life.

Self-help books always end up feeling “preachy” to me. I know that this is not the authors’ intent, but there it is. That being said, Dr. Kinrys seems to have some great ideas regarding the treatment of anxiety. A personal medical opinion is always a good thing.

That's why I think this resonated with me. The overall tone seemed kind and compassionate.

Of course! I'm thinking of getting a hard copy to keep on my shelf. That's how valuable I think this book is.
