Valeriana Officinalis: A Common Aid
Valeriana officianalis, better known as valerian root, is one of the most commonly used herbal therapies and homeopathic ingredients. It is derived from a flowering plant and is widely used as a natural sedative and a muscle relaxer. In herbal medicine it is often used in teas and in supplements, but in homeopathy it is important for a homeopath to prescribe customized potencies and dosages to ensure each patient's individual needs are met.
Valeriana officianalis is used to help relieve the symptoms associated with:
- Sleep disorders
- Stomach issues
As with any new herbal or homeopathic treatment you may be considering, it is important that you talk with your primary care provider about your plans. Even though these all-natural remedies are often considered to be safe and free of side effects, it is still possible for some people to experience some adverse reactions. By consulting with your primary care provider, as well as an experienced homeopath, you can ensure you are receiving the best care possible and work to avoid running the risk of experiencing any potential side effects that may arise from the use of Valeriana officianalis.
