Title: Kava helping more than Valerian
Post by: WayToJose on December 07, 2009, 10:28:03 pm
This amazing lady at the herbal store downtown just turned me onto kava kava. I been drinking it in a tea and using drops of it in my water bottle. It keeps me way more chill than valerian, which is what my aunt told me to try. I totally recommend it.

Do you have a therapist or a doctor? If you do, have you told them about trying these herbs? I tried to use varlerian tincture to help me sleep, but it never really worked. I ultimately had to stop drinking tea with caffeine and Diet Coke. Have you tried stopping caffiene?

I'm not against herbs and natural remedies, but you do have to be careful about this kind of thing. I know that they sometimes have side effects that the people at the health food store don't know about.
