Are you relying on coffee and sugary treats to get you through the day? Going to bed early but feeling like you haven’t slept at all? Not able to fall asleep at night even though you were exhausted during the day?
There are some wonderful herbs that nurture your nervous system and help you to cope with daily life stressors. Adaptogen herbs, like Licorice and Withania, are fantastic for people who are fatigued as they help sustain energy levels, promote sleep and reduce negative responses to stress.
Nervine herbs, such as Chamomile, Lemon balm and Passionflower, help you to relax so the body can rest and repair.
Along with herbal medicine, dietary changes are important too. Reducing alcohol, caffeine, sugary foods and foods with artificial colours and numbers is important because they are all stimulants which rev up the nervous system and over work the adrenals.
