Exam times again-at this time of the year I get busy with students who come to me for stress and anxiety related problems associated with exams.
Normally a definite amount of stress and anxiety may push them to excel and achieve best results but sometimes it may extend beyond and add to panic and exam nerves leading to a downward spiral in their academic life.
In time this stress further weakens the immune system making their body more susceptible to other illnesses that can caught their body when least expected and especially during the exams.
While it is natural to get anxiety and stress when the level of preparation is low but sometimes I also see students who feel overwhelming even though their preparation level is acceptable.
But nevertheless, homeopathy provides suitable medicines for each specific exam need. A personalized consultation with a homeopath is all that you need to discern what prescription will suit your context of exam nerve.
