America remains a rich and powerful nation, but millions of our citizens are “wracked with grief and despair,” said David French in NationalReview.com. Stark evidence of that paradox was provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s latest annual report on American life expectancy, which showed our average span either falling or stagnating for the third consecutive year. The last time we saw a downward trend in life expectancy, America was fighting World War I and suffering through a flu pandemic that killed 675,000. Now drugs and suicide are mostly to blame. The overdose rate is up 356 percent since 1999, and the 2017 death toll—70,237—“far outstrips the total American fatalities in Vietnam.” For a large swath of our population, the family structure has broken down, amid rampant divorce, children being raised out of wedlock, and young men unable to find jobs that support a family. “We’re facing not so much a drug problem as a heartbreak problem,” said Mona Charen, also in NationalReview.com. With families and social bonds crumbling, an AARP study found one-third of Americans reported chronic loneliness. Isolation is a state “about as deadly as smoking.”
The life-expectancy decline is far worse in rural America, said Jennifer Rubin in The Washington Post. There—where unemployment and poverty rates are higher—the suicide rate is almost twice that of urban counties. President Trump “owes his presidency to rural Americans,” but other than offering them cultural resentment and scapegoats, he’s done nothing for them. In fact, he’s further hurt them with a devastating trade war that shut Chinese markets to U.S. farm products and cost farmers billions.
Our country’s problems go deeper than economics, said David Brooks in The New York Times. We’ve had 10 years of economic expansion, and the GDP is currently growing at a robust 3.5 percent a year. Yet many employers can’t find workers with necessary skills, and jobs that provide dignity and middle-class wages are dwindling. Millions of people suffer “a crisis of connection.” In many rural and working-class communities, people are no longer involved in churches and community organizations; they’re less likely to know their neighbors and less likely to get married. “It’s not jobs, jobs, jobs” or better welfare programs that will save us from this ongoing “social catastrophe.” It’s human relationships, and a society that cares about people more than money.
Be it work, finances, relationships, or health issues, most of us experience stressful events at some point in our lives. But today, researchers are witnessing levels of stress that are virtually unprecedented.
A startling 80% of Americans now report experiencing intense, chronic stress over personal finances and the economy. And 30 million Americans take medication to treat depression, but for most people, antidepressants serve mostly as a placebo, scientists now say.
The problem is not isolated to the U.S: The World Health Organization estimates that stress-related disorders affect nearly 450 million individuals worldwide.
The effects of this pandemic on the public health are profound.
Researchers have linked the cumulative impact of stress to a host of age-accelerating conditions and degenerative diseases.
These range from cardiovascular disease to diabetes to various cancers. As this graph clearly demonstrates, the research on the effects of stress demonstrate the damaging effects allowing stress to rule your life.

The good news is that recent confirmatory data show targeted nutritional interventions exert a beneficial effect on many of the biological risk factors produced by stress.
Numerous medical journals report that St. John’s Wort is as effective as some of the most frequently prescribed antidepressants, without the side-effects. In addition, Tyrosine elevates the levels of epinephrine, more pinephrine and dopamine, the brain’s “feel good” hormones.
B-complex vitamins that contain thiamine, riboflavin, and niacin are helpful in dealing with physical stress, according to nutrition experts at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas. These vitamins are often recommended to help acute stress associated with surgery and injuries. B vitamins play a vital part in energy metabolism. Finally, the substances choline and inositol found in a vitamin b-complex offer a calming effect that can be helpful in dealing with stress.
You may not be aware that emerging science also touts calcium, the so-called miracle mineral for its potential to promote weight loss, relieve depression and anxiety associated with premenstrual syndrome, control high blood pressure, and ward off strokes. According to the most recent research, low magnesium also plays a crucial role in the development of depression, attention deficit disorder, heart attack and diabetes.
5-Hydroxytryptophan or 5-HTP, has voluminous research and writings about its ability to adjust the serotonin levels in the brain, creating a much more tranquil and non-aggressive attitude without the mental dullness associated with drugs that attempt to do the same. Several double-blind placebo-controlled clinical trials have demonstrated the effectiveness of 5-HTP in the treatment of depression.

“Stress Eze has changed my life. In the last year, I began to feel so much anxiety. I was overwhelmed, irritable (my family will tell you that is an understatement) and tired. I couldn’t focus and follow-through. I found Stress Eze and after 7 days, I was back to “ME” again! I am once again happy and loving my life. I have tried taking them here and there, but that doesn’t work for me. I think my body’s deficiencies demand for me to use them on a regular schedule. I am so glad I found Let’s Talk Health and most of all Stress Eze. Also, for anyone considering buying supplements here… Let’s Talk Health staff has never been anything but excellent in their customer service and support. Thanks Let’s Talk Health!!”

“I have been depressed for about 2 years and did not want to take antidepressants so I went looking for a good supplement. At first I was hit and miss taking the Stress Eze and it helped some. About a month ago I decided to be strict with taking it as suggested – in the morning and at night. WOW what a difference. I am laughing more and my energy is up as well as my moods. I am so much better at handling stress as well. What a relief to know I can take something natural rather than putting the conventional meds in my body.”
