Nervines and Adaptogens in Clinical Practice
Health care practitioners are all too aware of the powerful impact stress has on the lives and health of their patients/clients. While nutrition, physical activity, meditation and other forms of mind body medicine should always be the foundation of any treatment approach, there is a strong role for the use of both adaptogen and nervine herbs in clinical practice. In this session, Tieraona Low Dog, M.D., reviews some of the most commonly used and scientifically researched adaptogen and nervine herbs, discussing their primary, secondary and tertiary activities, enabling practitioners to gain greater insights into which plant should be chosen, for which patient/client, and why.
Herbs to be discussed include: Ashwagandha, Chamomile, Ginseng (Asian), Holy Basil, Kava, Lemon balm, Milky oat seed, Passionflower, Rhodiola, and St. John’s wort.
