The endocrine system is one of the most important, and most misunderstood of the body’s systems. This includes the organs in the body that are responsible for hormones.
Hormones transfer information and instructions from one set of cells to another, which is how our body communicates with itself.
Unfortunately, the stresses of our modern world have brought chaos to our endocrine system.
There are some herbs that can restore balance to the endocrine system. If taken properly, these herbs can harmonize the body and ease its symptoms.
Sleep is a good indicator of your internal balance. Insomnia is a symptom of disharmony in the body. A category of herbs called nervines may be just what your stressed out body needs!
Nervine herbs help to calm the body, mind, and spirit. They also heal damaged nerve endings, which are the result of chronic stress and anxiety.
Whether your mind is keeping you awake at night or you’re a light sleeper, nervines can help you wake up feeling refreshed and well rested.
A few examples of nervines to take are chamomile, lemon balm, lavender, St. John’s wort, and vervain.
Peppermint and Serenity are both amazing relaxing teas with nervine herbs in them.
