I post on occasion about products I have found and tried that are alternative treatments for common ailments that most people seek out prescriptions for. Some of the most commonly medicated conditions today are stress, anxiety and depression. It seems almost every one suffers from one other the other at varying degrees off and on throughout their life. But not everyone suffers from it badly enough that they actually require the meds that are so often prescribed for those conditions. As I have posted about before, I suffered from pretty bad post partum depression after the birth of my daughter and turned to modern medicine for help but discovered that my depression was nutritionally based and was able to go off the psych meds a lot sooner than my Dr had anticipated... this change in approach was spurred by a bad experience with suicidal thoughts (which hadnt been an issue before) while on zoloft. So I am all for alternative medicines. They generally dont make you fixate on all the ways you could potentially kill yourself. ANYWAY! One such alternative medicine product that I recently found is Confianza by ItWorks! Global. First I will tell you what the website says about the product then give you a description of my experience with it: 

'Confianza is a naturally based supplement that increases your energy levels while reducing stress and fatigue. Its special blend of herbs was developed to provide a safe way to enhance your ability to cope with all forms of stress: physical, emotional, or environmental. Confianza's proprietary blend of herbs includes many ingredients called adaptogensAdaptogens are natural substances that work through the adrenal glands to produce adjustments in the body that help combat stress and increase your resistance to it. These ingredients in Confianza can help restore balance within your body, allowing you to better cope with the stresses in your life.

  • Anti-stress formula
  • Made with natural adaptogenic herbs
  • Improves mental focus & concentration
  • Helps the body cope with physical stress
  • Provides energy and reduces fatigue
  • Helps restore body balance
Directions: Adults take 2 tablets as a dietary supplement.'

Now, I have not taken Confianza more than a handful of times since my depression is easily managed by nutrition therapy, but I do take it on occasion when I need a little boost to get me out of the rut. When I first took it I followed the directions and took 2 tablets. At first it just mellowed me out, but I soon realized that half the day had slipped away from me and I had no energy to do anything. So I didnt take it for a while after that. But then I had another rough day and I wanted to chill out a little. So I took one. This time it didnt chill me out, it boosted my energy, kept me clear headed, and made me feel like I could actually get a few things done. It was great! So for me 2 pills is too much, but I know other people who take more than 2 because less than that is not effective for them. So would I recommend this product? You bet I would! If you plan on using it just remember that it might take a little experimenting. One woman I know through a product review page said that she had been on antidepressants for YEARS but that thanks to Confianza she is now finally able to get off those meds. I think that's wonderful!

Hi em15 and Beth. I just wanted to say that this too has helped me through some very difficult times, including but not limited to, post pregnancy depression. I have been taking this everyday to help me and I have noticed a change in everything..my self esteem, my confidence, my mood. For example..when I would get mad at the hubby or my little one was in a crying spell I used to get so irritated. Now, I can enjoy my little girl no matter how she feels, and when I get upset at the hubby I am more forgiving and understanding and can back to being happy. This has been a life savor for me, my relationship with my new baby, and my marriage. I highly recommend it. I am not saying this just because I sell it, I just wanted to give you a little insight. If you would like any more info or would just like to talk my email is swengerd@gmail.com

Have a great day ladies=]

Hi Samy just curious about your experience with this product I had a very bad panick attack about 2 months ago and have struggled with pretty severe anxiety ever since I just ordered this product and was wondering how long it took for you to feel a difference the first day I was super tired after a few hours of taking it the second day not so much tired but still struggled with my anxiety does it take time should I continue taking it before expecting a noticeable change ?

Hay there- We all have different issues that can be balanced with different things but this is what I have found.
I have taken Confianza everyday (even if its a good day) just like I would any medication. At first I did feel like it dropped mid day. But after few weeks that STOPPED!
I have been going through rough real life stuff this week and not ONE panic attack. I have spent years fighting Anxiety, ADHD, PTSD and it always beats me. I have gone anxiety attack free for 2 months now. I did not even think this was possible!!!

Hi. I'm about to start Confianza and wondered if it's best to take it in the morning or at night?
