Have you ever tried Holy Basil or L-Theanine for depression and ANXIETY?

The other day I woke up with some pretty bad anxiety. I searched online for some possible solutions to relieve my discomfort. I typed in ” best supplements for anxiety.” The first one that came up was L-Theanine.

So I went to the store and bought some. I also read that the herb Holy Basil was good too. So I bought them both. When I got to work my anxiety was very bad. Then to my dismay, the control panel on the wall kept setting off the alarm. Every minute the alarm would go off sending me into a deeper anxious feeling. I thought to myself, if this continues I’m quitting this job today. I reached over and took a holy basil capsule and waited.

Twenty minutes later I started feeling this calming sensation. Then about forty minutes I felt almost normal.

I was amazed. This stuff actually worked! So I experimented with stacking it together with l Theanine.

I take 600 mgs of Holy Basil by New Chapter.

600 mgs of L Theanine by Bronson that has passion flower mixed in.

Rhodiola 300 mgs by New Chapter

500 mgs of Taurine

500 mgs of magnesium

(I take all these together.)

Wait about an hour and a half and you will start to feel better. It really does work.

Do you have any remedies?

  1. There are many essentials oils that I use for anxiety, etc. God has provided a way to find them at a reasonable cost at Sprouts, Whole Foods and HEB or Young Living. Lavender, Vetiver, Ylang Ylang, and Frankincense. I diffuse them at night before going to bed. This is a topic that is scary to talk about because it is not accepted in Christian circles, and there seems to be a deeper rooted issue that is brought up, which is sin. So, how do you avoid the psychological (man centered/worldly aspect) and keep it spiritual or biblical?


    1. Personally, I don’t think it’s unbiblical to use things such as oils as remedies as long as we are not tampering with evil. Oil itself is not inherently sinful. Its our view and conscience that makes it what it is.
      We always have to be careful in the way we do things, but using these things for medicinal purposes is not sin.

      Thank you for sharing.
