Stress can override even herbs and medications… so make sure to do some deep breathing and get away from all the craziness of the day just before taking this formula, thus allowing those tight muscles to relax and let go.
These herbs must be used in combination with mindfulness, thus allowing being present in the here-and-now to take control of life and surrender into a feeling of peace. Thus the morning will be a new day and those spasming, cramped, and aching muscles will disappear.
