3 Foods to Help Calm Your Nerves While Facing an Invisible/Chronic Illness

If you are facing a chronic/invisible illness, I don't have to tell you how much anxiety and stress comes along with it.

We need all the help we can get to try and calm down our nerves. Nutrition plays a major role in healing and helping calm down the stress response.

Here are three nutrients that can help:

  1. Salmon: Salmon promotes brain health. It also contains EPA and DHA that help to regulate neurotransmitters dopamine and serotonin, which have many relaxing properties that will aid in stress reduction.

  2. Chamomile: Chamomile is an herb that can aid in anxiety and stress. It contains antioxidants that are proven to reduce inflammation, which in turn can reduce stress and anxiety. Plus, it tastes yummy!

  3. Oats: Oats are high in fiber, which can help keep your blood sugar levels even. They also contain vitamin b, which helps you maintain energy and in turn reduces stress and anxiety.

Try adding these 3 nutrients into your daily routine to keep those nerves calm.
