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 the 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 of 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.
