Valerian, Lemon Balm (2006) & Insomnia


Learn more about insomnia.

918 children in multiple centers were treated successfully. Dyssomnia is a form of insomnia caused by disruptions in physiological functioning often due to environmental factors. Although this research was conducted by a pharmaceutical company it is worth noting that European pharmaceutical companies and doctors have long accorded the same respect to aromatherapy, herbal and homeopathic treatments as given to allopathic treatment in the U.S. Also this study cannot be considered of primary importance because it was not a blind trial with a control group, but it did included 918 subjects. Similar studies conducted by universities and hospitals rarely have this large a group.
