First to using herbs for me, wanted second opinion
As of the last 2 months I have been experiencing severe anxiety which include chest pains, side aches, pressure in my head, pretty much every symptom it seems has happened. I went to a local natural food place today, and spoke with a very helpful lady who pointed me into the direction of a few homeopathic approaches to this nuisance I've been having.
For my chest pains and palpitations she gave me hawthorn in form of drops to put on my tongue. For the anxiety she gave me passion flower and skullcap for a concoction to simmer overnight with. I also received licorice root because my adrenals are being overcharged for 90% of the day.
I was given a prescription 2 days ago for celexa which is an anti depressant and the form that they prescribed it to me in, seemed like they just picked a name out of the hat. I would just very much rather take the homeopathic approach and wanted to get a second opinion that this a safe route being the first time I've tried this. I read somewhere that skullcap can lose it's potency when boiled also, not sure if this is true. Thank you for your time.
