Music for Body and Soul
The passionflower was used traditionally in the USA and later in Europe as a calming herb for anxiety, insomnia, seizures, and hysteria. It is still used today to treat these physical diseases. Scientists believe passionflower works by increasing levels of a chemical called Aminobutyric Acid in the brain.The acid lowers the activity of some brain cells, making you feel more relaxed. Passionflower is often combined with Valerian and other herbs. A study of many people shows us that passionflower was as effective as oxazepam for treating the same symptons. A recent study found that taking the herb Passion combined with taking relaxing music gives more "peace" inside...!
