(NaturalNews) We've all had times when stress and nerves have gotten the best of us. In fact, with today's job demands and fast-paced lifestyles, chronic stress that just won't go away is quite common. Unfortunately, this can take quite a toll on our physical and emotional health, so if you're there or anywhere close, the herb rosemary might be just what you need.

Rosemary is known to calm the nerves and relax the muscles. Rosemary also boosts blood flow to the brain which helps us think more clearly while improving memory. Just smelling the herb has been found to lower cortisol levels - and high cortisol levels are associated with stress. Specifically, elevated cortisol kicks in our "fight or flight" response and by bringing down cortisol levels, we're able to move into relaxation mode.

Rosemary is also thought to stimulate our adrenal glands to provide energy while lifting moods and relieving stress. What a great little herb - it drops stress levels while giving us the energy and clear head to tackle whatever it is that's stressing us out.

A compound in rosemary, carnosic acid, has also been found to simulate nerve growth; this is a protein vital for the growth and maintenance of nerve tissue. This means that rosemary helps build and repair our nervous system so that going forward, we're better able to handle stressful situations. In fact, this natural compound in rosemary is so effective that a chemical company has patented a derivative of it for use with Alzheimer's patients. Other research has found that carnosic acid offers protection in the brain from common agricultural pesticides implicated in Parkinson's disease.

Rosemary is often made into a tea for medicinal effects. To make a raw rosemary tea (because herbs are more powerful raw) just take three inches of fresh rosemary and blend it for a couple of minutes with a cup of water. Then, strain and add a bit of stevia for sweetness.

If you're really on edge, you might also want to use fresh rosemary in a liver cleansing coffee enema. The before and after differences in stress levels can be amazing. To do this, blend a sprig of fresh rosemary with three cups of water, then strain and add the liquid to a cooled one gallon coffee enema. Then, retain the mixture in your body for several minutes, and release and repeat until you've used all of your solution. Of course, you'll always want to replenish your healthy bacteria immediately after doing any enemas.

Because many common chemicals damage our nervous systems and make us feel nervous and anxious in general, using fresh rosemary in a coffee enema performs double duty by removing some of those poisons while relaxing us and relieving stress at the same time. The best part: with this method you'll often feel the relaxation benefits instantly - especially with chronic stress.

For on-going nervous system building, you can get into the habit of chopping and adding a teaspoon of fresh rosemary to your salads, baked potatoes, and soups. You don't want to overdo rosemary though. Two cups of the tea a day should be more than enough and it's best to use the rosemary coffee enema only twice a week for a month before taking a break. Rosemary is also a powerful antioxidant with potent antibacterial, antifungal and anticancer properties. Rosemary, however, shouldn't be taken in quantity by pregnant women.


About the author

Kim Evans is a natural health writer and author of Cleaning Up! The Ultimate Body Cleanse. Cleaning Up! offers deep cleansing and using methods in this book, people have gotten rid of dozens of different types of health problems, as well as just losing excess weight, thinking more clearly, and feeling better.

Kim's next book chronicles events in her life that happen to match patterns in the Bible. She's also found three places in the Bible that tell us its about these patterns and even asking you to match them.
Here's a little from the upcoming book...
In Isaiah 22:20, it says, "And it must occur in that day that I will call my servant, namely Eliakim." But, because these prophecies are cryptic and they aren't meant to be understood until they are understood, it's only the last three letters.
A few lines later, it says, "From the land of Kittim it has been revealed to them."
Here, you just take out any three middle letters, and again, it's the name of the person bringing you this message, or the sacred secret of the prophecy. Actually, if you take those two passages, Kim is about the only name you can get from both of them.
In Numbers 1:1 1:18, it's talking about "the family" and mentions Pagiel. It also twice mentions February 1st, (Kim's birthday) and then says that the youngest is 20 years old. Kim's little sister Paige is currently 20 years old.
In Chronicles 1 11:20 it mentions the brother of Joab and then in the same sentence uses the word brandishing. Kim's middle name is Jo and her older sister's name is Brandi. There are other patterns to her sisters too but these sort of mention them by name.
Of course, it helps if you know that there is a magical spiritual reality available that comes deep cleansing and often major dietary upgrades. It's also why Jesus was teaching the same thing, if you find his teachings in the Essene Gospel of Peace. In this text, he even says things like, "You'll never see the father unless you clean your colon." But, this is paraphrased...
In the Bible Jesus says things more like, happy are those who wash their robes, as they can enter the tree of life. The tree of life is elsewhere explained as God's paradise. He also said, first clean the inside of the cup and then the outside will also be clean.
