Rescue Remedy, a natural therapy created from flower essences, is an effective stress reliever which neither requires a doctor's prescription nor does it lead to any side effects or addiction, says a scientific study.
Manufactured by Nelsons, Rescue Remedy contains five flower essences-Rock Rose to alleviate terror and panic, Impatiens to mollify irritation and impatience, Clematis to combat inattentiveness, Star of Bethlehem to ease shock, and Cherry Plum to calm irrational thoughts.
Available in a convenient spray bottle or in drop form, the therapy helps provide better emotional balance and fast, convenient relief from everyday stress, according to the study conducted by researchers at the University of Miami School of Nursing in conjunction with The Sirkin Creative Living Center (SCLC).
"The result of this independent study is not only welcome news for those of us who encounter stressful situations every day, but particularly for the 40 million Americans who suffer from physician-diagnosed anxiety," said Dr. Ronald Stram, who regularly prescribes Rescue Remedy to his anxious and stressed patients.
"Stress compromises your ability to fight off disease and infection. It can even rewire the brain, making you more vulnerable to everyday pressures and problems," he added.
