Hypericum (also called St John's wort) has been one of the most talked about herbs in the past 10 years, but has actually been widely-used for centuries, for treating nervous conditions. Paracelsus, a respected and well-known physician of the Middle Ages, treated patients with this nerve-soothing and strengthening plant. A recent report from Germany states that there are about three million prescriptions written annually for hypericum, making it more popular than other conventional "anxiety" drugs. It is one of nature's best herbs for the entire nervous system and has received much medical attention and recognition in recent years.
A western herbal medicine traditionally used to relieve symptoms of anxiety, nervous unrest, restlessness and sleeplessness. Hypericum can also assist in the management of mood swings.
