natural remedy for rage

I can get angry pretty quickly; usually at my family’s expense. Are there any natural ways to calm me down.

I have started exercising, but for the time being I am just exhausted from it- which makes me more irritable. I also tried Kava and it didn’t help at all.

  • Food intolerances or allergies or sensitivies to chemicals, perfumes, air sprays, cleaning products etc. can create havoc with your neural system and will definitely send you into a crazy spin at the drop of a pin……. it possible that you are intolerant to wheat, lactose or soy products …… i’m intolerant to all of them and within minutes of consuming anything containing those three seemingly "harmless" ingredients my brain totally frizzles and some of the most ghastly mood swings and stomach aches and headaches always ensue.

    Also, the amount of additives and chemicals and other nasties in packaged foods these days is positively scary …… i have found in particular that additives like MSG (620 – 635) make me extremely agitated and agressive.

    As consumers are becoming more wary of MSG, manufacturers are using other non-regulated ingredients that contain MSG, but aren’t pure MSG, to avoid having to list MSG on their labels!!

    Additives that Always contain MSG are ~

    Monosodium glutamate
    Hydrolysed vegetable Protein
    Hydrolysed plant protein
    plant protein extract
    calcium caseinate
    hydrolysed oat flour
    hydrolysed anything else!!
    Potassium glutamate
    Hydrolysed protein
    autolysed yeast
    sodium caseinate
    yeast extract
    textured protein

    Additives that frequently contain MSG are~

    Malt extract
    bouillon
    stock
    natural vlavouring
    natural beef or chicken flavor
    malt flavor
    broth
    flavoring
    spices
    seasoning….. hydrolysed vegeetable protein is one of the more common substitutes for pure MSG found in a huge range of common foods………….. hydrolysed vegetable protein is a concentrated form of natural MSG that is now often used by manufacturers instead of MSG as a way around consumer concern……. often, products with high amounts of HVP boldly market themselves as "MSG free" to attract consumers who are unaware that HVP contains high concentrations of glutamates and has the same adverse health effects as MSG.

    HVP is made from junk vegies selected for their high quantitity of excitotoxins, e.g. glutamate… the vegies are boiled in a vat of sulphuric acid for several hours then the acid is neutralised with caustic soda… the brown sludge is scraped off the top and dried into a powder….. the powder contains known carcinogens and dicarboxylic acid, the safety of which is unknown…. MSG is often added to this powder… finally, the powder is put in our food….. including baby food and we eat it…….. scary stuff.

    Avoid anything with flavor enhancers or hydrolysed vegetable protein if you’re wanting to avoid MSG because of its adverse health impacts….. there’s a book by Julie Eady called "Additive Alert" that you should buy from your local bookstore …… pretty rivetting & eye opening stuff mate.

    Actually, not eating out of a packet and eating loads of fresh & healthy foods will go a long way to help bolster your neural system.

    Take fish oils on a daily basis too….. the omega 3 fatty acids in fish oils will bolster neural functioning for you and do a lot of other things also.

    Fish oils are rich in omega 3 fatty acids and will also help to possibly prevent depression;
    ~ alleviate rheumatoid arthritis;
    ~ offer protection against migraines and kidney disease;
    ~ enhance the immune system;
    ~ lower blood pressure;
    ~ keep skin, hair and nails healthy;
    ~ lower LDL cholesterol and triglycerides;
    ~ reduce blood viscosity;
    ~ help prevent heart attacks and strokes.

    Wonderfull for calming a frizzled mind.

    To increase your Omega 3 intake ~

    ~ grind whole organic flaxseeds in a coffee grinder and sprinkle over fresh fruit;
    ~ throw a handful of organic walnuts into a green leafy salad;
    ~ add a tablespoon of flaxseed oil to your morning smoothie;
    ~ eat oily, cold water fresh fish like salmon, mackerel or tuna at least three times a week.

    organic with the nuts and seeds to avoid the nasty sulfites and other chemicals they use to "preserve" them that may upset sensitive bodies.

    Try to go as natural with your daily food as you can…… ditch all pre packaged and junky type foods……. eliminate highly refined sugar and instead focus on fresh fruits in season….. drink freshly squeezed juices and loads of fresh filtered water….. ditch all the sodas and pop and soft drinks and any drinks with caffeine too if you drink any as they are only full of sugar which is nutritionally void anyways and will also rob you of your precious B complex of vitamins and dehydrate you terribly….. prepare lean meats and fresh fishes and fresh vegies for meals and ditch the pastries, cookies, cakes and chips if you eat any as your best chance for a healthy vital body will always be eating from natures bounty of fresh wholesome foods……. read the labels too when you buy bread as many of them have an awful lot of highly refined sugar in them.

    Take a daily dose of a multi B complex supplement too on a daily basis to support a healthy neural, immune and digestive system……… this will help enormously in reducing your stress and anxiety levels.

    Eat loads of leafy and green vegies as they are rich in magnesium… magnesium is needed in our bodies for healthy nerves and muscle functioning and of course for heart health and is known as the antistress mineral….. foods rich in magnesium will help eliminate any issues you have with constipation or muscle twitching too.

    hope this helps u

    cheers

  • I think St. Johns Wort…thats supposed to help with pms rage so it might work for your rage too!

  • Cleansing has helped many, many people with emotional balance. Excess chemicals in the body can interfere with the natural chemical reactions of your body. Excess metals (like aluminum and mercury) also may interfere with the chemical and electrical pathways of your brain. Here are two articles that might help and point you in the right direction.

  • A Mac Named Tasha

    i smoke a lot of pot. im not crazy, it does help. =)

  • well kava has caffeine; make sure you know your blood type and try a blood type diet

    p.s. I knew a guty who smoked ALOT of pot; he was fine when he was high; but when he came down he was extremely hard to live with. when he quit, he was calm all the time.

    p.s.s why did i get thumbs down? are you all potheads?

  • you should try getting your hands on some cannabis
    but make sure you eat it so the effects can last
    throughout the day
    cheers

  • Try Bach remedies. For most of the issues having origin in mind, this is an extra-ordinary system

    One remedy "Impatiens" is directly applicable. Also Olive helps for exhausted nature

  • breath in your nose for 5 seconds and out your mouth for 7 really slowly. Focus only on your breathing.

  • Australian Bush Flower Essences Calm & Clear Essence might be helpful, put 7 drops in water, shake and sip till you are calmer.

    doing a detox might be helpful and the Australian Bush Flower Essences Purifying 7 drops morning and night would be a good natural and mild one to use.
