19th Century valium
by Herbalist Wendy Wilson
Sometimes a light bulb goes off in our heads and we see things differently and go about solving problems differently. Thomas Edison was the man who lit up our world with the invention of the light bulb. You can say he enlightened us. He was a school dropout and one of America’s greatest businessmen and inventors. As a child I visited his laboratory in Menlo Park New Jersey. The first light bulb Mr. Edison made in his lab was still operating and giving off light. Edison also invented the phonograph and motion picture camera. Without Edison you might not have an Ipod or pictures to post online. Why am I mentioning Edison? He had vision and he didn’t let negative influences stop him. He also saw a problem with the allopathic healthcare and said this;
“The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.” Thomas Edison
Over 45% of the American workforce tests positive for prescription narcotics. About 8% of our workforce, which is part-time, and 10% which is full-time are drug abusers. Not all American employees work in office buildings. About 10% of construction workers and truck drivers are using some kind of addictive substance. Vicodin is the most frequently identified narcotic found on employee drug tests. Vicodin contains two pain killers and is currently considered by the FDA to be a class III narcotic but is being reviewed and could become a class II narcotic. What is the difference? The class determines if the drug has the potential for abuse. More and more Americans are using Vicodin for recreational purposes. About 10% of high school seniors use it. The White House reports from the National Drug Control that Vicodin is an opioid, which affects the pleasure center of the human brain and gives us a sense of well-being. These and other drugs will numb us to emotional pain and produce feelings of euphoria. This is very addictive. Over 80% of those arrested for a crime test positive for illegal drugs.
Americans were introduced to sedatives and tranquilizers in the 1860’s, when the first barbiturates were distributed by medical practices. By 1903 these drugs were given to improve sleep, relieve anxiety and to treat seizures. The addiction and overdose rates rose pretty quickly and pharmaceutical companies began to create other, “safer” drugs. Next to arrive were the opiate drugs; morphine, codeine, heroin, Vicodin, Lortab, Oxycodone and others to depress the central nervous system and make us not care for a little while. Granted, some pain killers are necessary for extreme trauma but outside of a trauma setting these drugs quickly push up our tolerance levels and higher doses are needed.
Is there another way for us to cope with stress and emotional traumas without using addictive drugs? Yes, there are other ways. Deep breathing, massage, exercise are all options and help lower tension, anxiety and stress levels. There are also herbs that can help remove tension and stress from the body without risk of addiction. These herbs have been in use for hundreds of years and the goal is to help us cope; not to send our minds to the 5th dimension.
Europeans have been using valerian root for centuries. The FDA and the German E-Commission have tested this herb and found it to be safe. Valerian root was first written about in the 9th and 10th centuries and was first used as a sedative. Valerian’s name is derived from the Latin “valene” meaning “to be strong”. It was used for headaches, fluid retention, insomnia, muscle spasms, anxiety, panic attacks and depression. Women who were prone to hysteria were often given valerian or put into a valerian bath. During the turn of the century, ladies in Germany would take valerian root tinctures as often as they drank coffee in order to reverse nervousness or irritability. In medieval times valerian was often served as a condiment. It was also often used to calm tooth pain. In Argentina it is often served as a tea to calm fidgety children. If you have HDHD you might want to research your natural options and look into valerian root. Although valerian has been often compared to the prescription Valium, it is not the same. Valerian fell from use around 1860 when prescription tranquilizers were developed.
HOW IT WORKS
Valerian acts to sooth and calm the nervous system. It helps remove tension from the nerves and help us to feel calmer and more at peace. It is not a narcotic. It will stimulate circulation and will increase heart action. The tranquilizing affect of valerian comes from its valepotriate chemicals. It is interesting that it calms us but without sedation. We do not lose any muscle control or cognitive ability. The best way to use valerian is in an extract or tincture liquid. Pills and capsules will contain fillers and is not as potent. Using valerian in a liquid form preserves the herbs oils and provides a stronger action to the body. Nutritional studies on the herb show that it is high in calcium, chromium, iron, magnesium and selenium. The nutrition in valerian root reveals why it is helpful in reversing insomnia.
DON’T STRESS OUT
Even though we live in stressful times we don’t have to risk our health to dangerous and addictive drugs to cope. God says, “Herbs are here for the service of man.” Gen 1:30-32. You can tap into the nutritional power herbs contain to help our system balance and heal itself. You will be able to cope and you won’t be a zombie. You’ll be able to cope and you won’t fail the drug test. You’ll be able to cope and you won’t be addicted and dependent on drugs. You’ll be able to cope and you will be stronger.
