    Talking VALERIAN Root and PASSION Flower Tea!!! helped me fall asleep!

    I have anxiety disorder, and trully I dont have sleep problems but, when I was little, I had very big problem trying to fall asleep, so my mom would give me Valerian root extract pills, and it worked like miracles...

    Now I am much older, and sometimes I drink VALERIAN Root, and Passion Flower TEA together, but in a seperate cups, and I am telling you like 30 mins later, I become soooooo SLEEEPY, it works like a miracle.

    Even Dr. ANDREW WEIL said, that Valerian root is powerful enough for insomia.

    Passion Flower adds more relaxation SO its better take it will Valerian Root!!!

    I hope this information helps

    I have heard a lot of great things about Valerian, But I kid you not; If I take even one capsule of the stuff I am WIRED for over 24 hours! Palpatations, jitters etc. Go figure.......
    Man I'd love to sleep longer than 4 hours.

    Valerian root is great. I use it on one of my horses to make her less hyper.

    hi, you can buy valerian at health food stores, or if you have a good grocery store...

    i think it smells dreadful and can't cope with tea, but, use A. Vogel by BioForce tincture (still smells dreadful, but, is more instant to take) (in a small amount of water an hour before bed), as it is a highly reputable company. capsules are good, too, if you don't mind swallowing them, but, make sure it isn't a generic, drug store brand or something of the like, as it is apt to be adulterated and old and not very high quality.

    where i live, there is an herb shop that mixes tinctures for you, so i've gotten 'my own' valerian/passionflower/skullcap mix - all very good relaxants.

    and unlike over-the-counter or prescription meds that are for periodic use only and often lose their effectiveness anyway, these herbs can be used without any detrement and with no side effects and can be used indefinitely. But, as always, do your homework and get information!

    that and a hot water bottle help me fall asleep more quickly.
