Anxiety often encompasses intrusive thoughts and the inability to relax. Brain fog includes difficulty in concentration, poor memory, and inability to be present. Both have many possible causes, including illness, trauma, and concern about one's self, family, and the world we live in. Herbal preparations and herbs can be taken for acute needs as well as taken as nervine tonics to help the nervous system adapt over time.
