There isn’t any doubt that OTC medicine can do wonders for our health, but with many beneficial effects, they do have some side effects as well. The easiest and stress-free way to treat any disease is first to approach homeopathic medications. Since ancient times Valerian has been used for medicinal purposes as an herb. The most famous use of valerian was during the first and second world war, and it was used not only for soldiers but also for the people affected by the war. People used Valerian specifically for the treatment of shell shock and nervous stress.
Moreover, people used it to calm their nerves even before that, in the 18th century. The Persians and Chinese have also reported having made a natural medicine to treat wounds – using the plant as an antiseptic. All this draws us back to the time when people used to use Valerian roots to treat a variety of medical complications. For example, back in time, it was used for diseases such as:
- sleep disorder
- joint pain
- and many used it to treat hot flushes.
Because of its many antioxidants, isovaleric and valeric acid found in the Valerian roots, it’s proved that you could cure your insomnia with the help of tea made with valerian roots. Anxiety can lead to stress, which in turn can lead to panic attacks and numerous other psychological complications. Anxiety can also lead to sleep deprivation and restlessness, which is essentially why people rely on strong muscle relaxants such as Xanax and such. However, if you want to steer clear of the long-term side effects of sleeping pills and muscle relaxants, why not try an herbal alternative. Valerian roots have been known to help calm the nerves and help you relax and unwind. The psychoactive compound present in valerian root is the reason anxiety is controlled.
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, commonly known as ADHD, is common in children, and if not diagnosed and treated in time, the disease may last their whole lives. This herb contains the ability to energize a specific chemical present in the human brain which is known to be GABA, which is helpful to this problem.
As an herbal treatment, medical professionals prescribe using Valerian roots to ease the symptoms of early menopause. The decrease in menopause symptoms is because of the presence of volatile oils present in Valerian roots, which prove to be helpful for women suffering from hot flushes.

The Obsessive Compulsive Disorder commonly known as OCD is a mental disease which is not bound to an age limit. It occurs when a person is engaged in any activity obsessively. Valerian root helps the person to act normally by ignoring those unwanted thoughts, compulsions, and obsessions.
Dizziness is a most common disease caused very often by migraine, high usage of medications, and quite often alcohol. Valerian roots, if taken as supplements will cure dizziness. After curing dizziness, valerian roots may help you to improve your memory.
The root or an infusion of the root can also be used as a compost activator and as a liquid feed in the garden. Decoctions and infusions of the root powder can be added to lotions, creams and salves for the skin.
Many people opt to take this herb in the form of warm valerian root tea right before bed because it has been shown to help ease nerves and encourage sleep. Valerian root tea health benefits are numerous, but get ready to plug your nose when you drink it. The recommended adult dosage of valerian root is 1 to 3 grams of the root taken 30 to 60 minutes before bedtime. To make valerian root tea, steep a teaspoon of the dried root in one cup of hot water for 10 minutes (roots need to steep longer than the aerial parts of a plant). Strain and drink. Be warned though, it will take a week or so before you receive the benefits of your nightly cuppa. To help with the odour, why not add a slice of lemon and a fruity herb tea, and a teaspoon of honey is comforting as well.
There are many incredible benefits of valerian root; however, the users must take note that it must be used appropriately when it comes to the regular dosage. If the precautions are not taken properly, then the same herb could be considered as dangerous. The good news is that valerian root tea is listed as Safety Class 1 by the American Herbal Products Association, which means it’s considered safe for consumption, although drinking valerian root tea during pregnancy is not recommended or for children under 3. ALWAYS research thoroughly any herb you are thinking of using, and consult your doctor particularly if you are taking prescribed drugs.
