All-heal, Vandal Root

Valerian, often called Nature's tranquilizer, is said to induce a sound sleep, calm the nerves, relieve pain, relax nervous tension and ease anxiety.  The herb has also been used to help children with hyperactivity and behavioral problems.

Country of Origin: India

Beneficial Uses:
Valerian Root is Nature's Tranquilizer.  For centuries, it has been used to regulate the nervous system and relieve tension, irritability, nervous exhaustion and stress, anxiety and hysteria.

Valerian is considered an anodyne that relieves pain and reduces sensitivity of the nerves.  The herb is thought to help recovery from shock and sudden emotional distress, and relieve the harsh effects of rehabilitation for many addicts.  Valerian is also an old-time nervine and remedy for St. Vitus Dance, vertigo, fainting, epilepsy and convulsions.

Valerian Root has been known to strengthen the heart and may sometimes reduce high blood pressure, particularly when anxiety is a factor.  Some lab studies claim that its use helps to stabilize heart rhythm and helps treat palpitations.

As an antispasmodic, Valerian Root helps to alleviate muscle, intestinal and menstrual cramps.

Used externally, Valerian is a fine topical antibacterial and makes an excellent fine facial wash.  It also encourages the healing of acne, skin rashes, wounds and ulcers.  In baths, it is soothing and relaxing and relieves muscle cramps.

Contraindications:
Valerian is not recommended for children, pregnant or nursing women, or those who suffer from low blood pressure or hypoglycemia. This product should not be combined with alcohol or with other sleep-inducing medications.  Because it is a sedative, one should never drive or operate machinery when using Valerian.

It is advisable to stop taking Valerian Root after two or three weeks and then restart; uninterrupted usage is not recommended.  Avoid large doses (many times the recommended amount), and if headaches or heart palpitations occur, its use should be discontinued.  The herb is not recommended for those taking prescription medications, particularly liver medications, unless a physician is first consulted. Valerian should be stopped about one week before surgery because it may interact with anesthesia.
