Depending on the severity of your Peripheral Neuropathy, your body and mind may be under constant stress from the pain, discomfort and uncertainty of the disease. For those suffering from constant pain and severe discomfort, the toll can be high.
Your nervous system is under constant distress with Neuropathy. The damage to your peripheral nerve can lead to false triggers of pain or tingling and numbness. This over stimulation of the nervous system can not only leave you in pain but can also lead to anxiety and lack of sleep – further aggravating your health.
One popular and time-tested remedy for calming the nervous system, relieving pain, reducing anxiety and promoting sleep is Passionflower. Taken from the above ground parts of the flower that bears its name, Passionflower has been used for centuries to treat anxiety, insomnia, seizures and more.
Recent research shows passionflower helps relieve anxiety and calm the nervous system by increasing levels of gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA) in the brain. GABA, a chemical made in the brain, reduces the activity of certain brain cells and in doing so lowers anxiety levels while also enhancing mood and even promoting relief from sensations of pain.
Regardless of the cause of your anxiety, Passionflower can help restore calm to both your mind and your nervous system. So whether you’re looking to calm your mind after a stressful work week or restore calm to an over stimulated nervous system – Passionflower may be your answer.
