(NaturalNews) According to the book Toxemia Explained written by Dr. John Tilden back in 1926, stress is the glue that holds toxemia together. He called all the different types of stress enervation, and toxemia is the condition of inflammation and mucous that doesn't get cleared out of the body.

Enervation acts like glue to hold inflammation and mucous in place, blocking elimination of even normal metabolic waste so that it builds up beyond the body's tolerance.

Dr. Tilden is considered the father of American naturopathy by some. And he described the mental aspects of enervation as indulging in lower negative energies, including fear, anxiety, anger, jealousy, and whatever we do to create stress or hold it in place.

Whatever reactions we have to actual stressful situations can be released, allowing the mind-body to restore to its normal balance. We get stuck in enervation by not releasing stressful reactions and indulging in over eating processed foods, which introduces toxemia.

Toxemia leads to cancer. Thus avoiding cancer and other diseases means first avoiding toxemia. You can download Dr. Tilden's 150-page book free from here: http://www.chrisbeatcancer.com

Most Natural News readers are familiar with dietary basics for well being as well as external pollutants that need to be avoided. But we live in conditions that are conducive to increased enervation from stress more than ever before. So this situation needs to be addressed.

Specific herbs and supplements to help alleviate enervation

Magnesium is a mineral vital to over 300 cellular metabolic events and is vital for heart health. It happens to be in short supply from our mineral depleted topsoil and it does get burned up with chronic stress.

According to Dr. Leo Galland: "Magnesium (Mg) deficiency increases susceptibility to the physiologic damage produced by stress. The adrenergic effects of psychological stress induce a shift of Mg from the intracellular to the extracellular space, increasing urinary excretion and eventually depleting body stores."

So it makes sense to supplement magnesium heavily in addition to eating lots of organic greens and cacao. Most oral supplements are not very assimilable. Dr. Mark Sircus, an occasional Natural News contributor, recommends applying magnesium oil topically. It can be purchased online.

It's not really oil, just feels like it. It comes from ancient water sources and its high mineral content makes it feel oily. Another good source comes a little pricier with health food store oral magnesium products like "Calm" or "A-B Calm." And they are calming. Many opt for the least expensive routine of soaking in a bath of Epsom salts to absorb magnesium.

Foods and oils rich in omega-3 fatty acids are important help stabilize one mentally and calm stress-induced anxiety. (http://www.naturalnews.com/omega-3.html)

Herbs to minimize enervation include St. John's Wort, well known for it's anxiety calming and anti-depressant qualities. Drinking chamomile tea is very relaxing after a stressful day. So is lemon balm tea. Ginseng taken regularly can also alleviate the effects of enervation or chronic stress.

Activities to alleviate stress that don't involve supplements or foods

Binging on comfort foods, consuming alcohol, or watching lots of TV only adds to enervation. Moderate exercise or walking in nature is used by many to release stress. But there is the possibility of taxing yourself back into enervation if you exercise too much.

There are activities specifically designed for relaxing, releasing stress, and leading to calmer, higher states of consciousness that are permanent enough to keep you out of enervation.

They are yoga, tai-chi, chi-gong, and meditation. The last pose of hatha (physical) yoga postures commonly known as the corpse pose is a precursor to meditation if done correctly. (http://alignlife.com/articles/healthyhabits/Master_Yoga_Pose/)

And meditation is ample enervation proofing for those who do it regularly. (http://www.naturalnews.com/028694_anti-aging_meditation.html)
