When you’re trying to sculpt your muscles to make them look their best possible, you might be tempted to search the market for “shortcuts”. Doing tanning jabs with melanotan is a perfect example. Thought melanotan promises to transform pale skinned users into tanned models, this substance comes with some side effects. Other than the usual nausea, dizziness, stomach pains and all the other flu-like symptoms, some users have experienced anxiety.
Looking into the anxiety case
In any dictionary, anxiety is a feeling of restlessness or impatience regarding certain situations or events we cannot control. Just about any of us can feel anxious every now and then. This is a normal emotion and should not be a cause for concern. But when it starts to affect your day to day life and increase your heart rate out of the blue, you should at least look into it.
First thing to consider: could anxiety be just psychological? Considering melanotan has little to no clinical research behind it, it is not unusual to trigger some skepticism. Melanotan is mostly banned from selling, though it is not illegal to buy over the internet. And users know that, if not they wouldn’t be buying it off the internet. So, since the drug is tested only by buyers on their own expense, trying something new makes people nervous. Also, people feel stressed when they inject something into their body, without knowing for sure what it is.
It is not excluded that people using melanotan are completely relaxed, and the substance itself causes the heart rate to increase. For such cases many health foods stores sell supplements that may help the body relax naturally. In any case there are ways to relieve anxiety on your own.
Ways to relieve anxiety
Most treatments for anxiety require medication released on prescription. But the anxiety caused by melanotan is supposedly temporary. So before gulping on pills, see what nature has to offer.
Chamomile is a natural remedy for anxiety, because some of its compounds trigger the same reaction of receptors as drugs like Valium. Also chamomile contains apigenin which seems to stimulate neurogenesis and serve as treatment for neurological illnesses and disorders.
Another natural remedy is valerian. This plant reduces anxiety without inducing sleepiness. Since it smells rather peculiar, most prefer to take it as capsule. But tea can be consumed as well.
Aromatherapy has been proved to be effective in cases of anxiety or panic attacks. Essential oils extracted from lemon balm, lavender, jasmine are widely recommended to those in need of relaxation.
Exercise for 20 to 30 minutes if you feel anxious. Whether is at the gym, or you go for a quick stroll, exercise releases endorphins that help nervousness go away. Breathing techniques are also useful, in case you’re doing the melanotan jabs before bed. Many recommend the 4-7-8 breathing cycle. Basically you need to breathe in deeply for 4 seconds, keep the air inside for 7 seconds and let it out slowly for 8 seconds. Repeat until satisfied.
Whether psychologically induced or real, anxiety is a normal emotion and can be controlled. All you need is to master a few relaxation techniques and you’re set.
