Buckwheat is not a grass, but a

Rhubarb and Garden Sorrell. We view
buckwheat as a "mood

Remember when the herb Kava was
highly recommended for relaxation
and anxiety about ten years ago?
After exhibiting awful side effects
and falling out of favor, Kava is
making a comeback as a supplement
and "relaxing drink."
Because Kava is a member of the
pepper family, it is a major
salicylate and highly acidic. Kava
contains hallucinogenic and numbing
chemicals. It is also
contraindicated with numerous
prescription medications. I have
never recommended Kava and never
will because my youngest son had a
serious hallucinogenic reaction
after three days of use.
importantly, avoid Kava for risk of
severe liver damage.
There are numerous, safe nutrients
that address anxiety and help you
relax. Speak to your licensed health
professional about which ones are
right for you.
Have a happy, healthy day.
