Do you have trouble sleeping? There are many causes of insomnia . There are also many treatments available. Some of these treatments do NOT involve conventional medications

Insomnia is a common sleep disorder that can have long term consequences on health, memory, and quality of life. There are many herbal treatments available. The “ class’ of herbs used are called nervines.

A recent small study was done in Tran using Lemon Balm ( Melissa ) and Persian Lavender. I would like to see more of these herbal studies done with a larger group of patients. This small study was published in the HebralGram by the American Botanical Council

The authors conclude that the combination of lemon balm and Persian lavender had few adverse effects and may be an effective treatment for insomnia.

I utilize CBD oil for some of my patients. In addition a tea blend, Calmy containing California Poppy, Skullcap and other herbs. This tea blend is available at Botanical Bounty in NYC.

Until tomorrow…
