Natural Remedies using Schizandra

Adaptogen herbs can be viewed as tonics. ey are the best class of herbs for treating the endo-crine system and stress. Plants contain amazing mechanisms to help them deal with stress, whether it involves a soil disturbance or an environmental or pathogen attack. Plants release hormones, much like humans, to adapt to the issue. When we take adaptogens, they modulate and rewire our response to cortisol needs, increase our endurance for stress, and help us respond to it. E?ective adaptogens include ashwagandha, borage, eleuth-ero, holy basil, rhodiola, and schizandra.

Main action herbs Lemon balm (30 percent), chamomile (15 percent), and California poppy (20 percent). All three herbs are premiere sedatives with little or no side e?ects. ey work on the cen-tral nervous system to promote relaxation in both mind and body. Nourishing herbs Passionflower (10 percent) and schizandra (10 percent). Passion-flower is a great nurturer of the central nervous system and helps control overstimulation, which often leads to twitching and restlessness. Schizan-dra provides nourishment to the adrenal glands, which, when underfunctioning, can cause insom-nia. You can also add a bit of skullcap, another nervine, which is an excellent relaxer of what I refer to as ‘monkey mind”—when you lie in bed and your mind starts jumping all around, remind-ing you of all the things on your to-do list.
