Jul 22, 2020

Valerian is used for anti-spasmodic, sedative and sleep-assisted conditions: exertion, muscle pain, menstrual pain, bronchospasm, prolonged cough, tension headache, insomnia, nervous tension and lack of rest, anxiety and withdrawal of phenylmalonazole (diazepam). A German herb liquor preparation is recommended as a good daytime tranquilizer because it does not reduce activity time. Another German formulation, called Recvalysatum Burgerc, can be used for neurodebilitatal, agitation, anxiety and stress-related diseases.

They are also used as homeopathic drugs in Europe (diluted to 3 to 6 times) and are recommended for depression, agitation, lack of rest, lack of sleep, swelling and excessive libido.

It should be noted that Valerian may cause diuretic for some people, so for those who must urinate frequently at night, it is not suitable for sleep-assisted treatment with the herb.

It can also be used to treat arrhythmias, anorexia, tremor, gastrointestinal discomfort, chronic dyspepsia, gastric colic, hernia, dysentery and swelling (especially caused by overwork or physical labor, coffee, tobacco and alcohol). It can also treat Parkinson's disease, menstrual hyperexcitability, bed-wetting and Ascaris in children.
