Today’s world is a fast paced one. People are often on the go, and many don’t have or take adequate time to really relax and recharge. A lack of proper nutrition and unhealthy sleep patterns can also contribute to various nervous system issues, including depression, anxiety, insomnia, volatile emotions, chronic stress, pain, and more. Furthermore, poor nervous system health can create other imbalances in the body, such as digestive problems, high blood pressure, and palpitations.
Herbs that help to ease insomnia, pain, depression, anxiety, & other nervous system issues and have a direct benefit on the nervous system are often called nervines. These herbs will not deaden the nerves and senses like allopathic medications with the same aim will. Instead, they aid in relaxation, gently lifting the spirits, and working on a physiological level to strengthen and tone the nerves and brain.
