In brief: Address the whole

For chronic stress, one must address the whole situation.
What caused the chronic stress in the first place? Ashwagandha is a relatively safe herb that can be used for chronic stress to help symptomatically as well as to help rebuild the system. However, exercise, stress management techniques, and a good diet are also key as well as addressing the source of the stress.
