Valerian has a long history of use as a sedative and sleep aid. Valerian is
arguably the strongest western herbal central nervous system sedative.
Valerian will quiet a busy mind. It can promote sleep for those who cannot fall asleep and helps those who wake up in the middle of the night. Repeat the doses as needed within a night to facilitate sleep. The liquid is significantly faster in action compared to a pill which must be digested before it can be absorbed, so liquids are preferred for fastest action. It will help calm one down when going through difficult emotional and mental times or when in therapy and in turmoil. The downside of Valerian is that if taken during the day, it can make one feel tired, sedate or a little out of it. This can be controlled by altering the dosage.
Valerian is the strongest western herbal painkiller. It will reduce pain in
the musculoskeletal system (i.e., muscle and joint pain from injury,
accidents, workouts, surgeries). Valerian may be enough to control pain after relatively mild surgeries or dental procedures. It is also a smooth muscle relaxer for pain from menstrual cramps, digestive cramps, gall bladder, and kidney stones. Valerian will not remove all pain like a
pharmaceutical pain killer but will instead, reduce the percent of pain recognition by 10-50%. Some sensation of discomfort will remind the person that the body has limits because it is still healing a problem, but the level of pain reduction will allow one to relax enough and heal more effectively. The pharmaceutical removing all pain may give a false notion that one can overexert themselves and re-injure their original problem.
Valerian Root will help calm hyperactivity in adults and children. If one
becomes too fatigued by its use, cut back on the dose. One can increase dose appropriate to the stressful situation at hand.
Valerian has been used to decrease the symptoms from withdrawal from
barbiturates and benzodiazepine drugs. It helps the emotional agitation
from quitting smoking.
Valerian is also mildly anticonvulsant and may have indications in mild
forms of seizures.
Contrary to popular beliefs, Valium was derived from Valerian. They sound
alike and are for similar conditions, but are not related otherwise. The
generally acknowledged active constituent is sesquiterpenic acid called
valerenic acid and other volatile oils.
