Seven Herbs for Anxiety
Herbs can be very useful tools for anxiety in several ways. There are sedative herbs that calm your system, herbs that regulate extreme responses to stimuli, and herbs that can gently ground your energy.
In this class we'll cover my seven favorite herbal allies for anxiety and nervous tension. We'll discuss the uses, cautions, dosages, preparations and potential formulas for each herb. We'll look at each herb from a western herbal perspective, a Chinese medicine perspective, and in some cases a little about the research that's been done on it.
Here are the herbs we will be learning about:
- lemon balm
- bleeding heart
Knowing myself, we'll mention several others throughout the class as well.
Please bring a notebook and pen, and feel free to take pictures of samples as well for your reference.
