I’ll start this post off with a statistic I learned on passion-flower.ca: One in five adults suffers from anxiety or nervous tension and feel overwhelmed by life’s daily demands. I am one of them. I’ve written about my anxiety issues before and how it’s a daily battle for me. I have good days and bad days. It’s something that I’ll probably always struggle with but I”m working really hard on getting it under control.
We’ve been told over and over how stress can wreak havoc on our bodies. It takes away our sleep, appetite (in some instances), makes us feel tired and robs our joy. Yes, stress is normal, but too much of it can feel so overwhelming. Have you ever had those nights where you are so tired, but your mind will not shut off no matter what? You try to count sheep, watch TV or read and nothing is working. Thankfully, my sleep is pretty good and I only have nights like this every couple weeks. I end up staying up till 4 am looking at the clock wishing I could just sleep already! The next day is always brutal.
I don’t like taking prescription medication and prefer to try a natural approach which is why I figured I’d try an herbal remedy sleep-aid, Pascoflair. I’ve used herbal medicine in the past for other conditions with some success.
Pascoflair contains pure Passionflower extract which has traditionally been used in herbal medicine to help insomnia due to mental stress and restlessness. It helps to promote relaxation, concentration and give you a better night’s sleep.
I’ve got a lot on my plate right now personally and have been under more stress than normal for the past couple months. John’s is being medically released from the military in a couple months and we’ve got so much to do to prepare for that. I always feel like I never have enough time during the day to get everything done that I need to. I seem to have a lot of those days where there’s lots to do but not much gets done because I get side-tracked or interrupted. Then at night, I lay in bed thinking about what I still need to get done! It’s a cycle I need to break!
On one of those nights where my mind would not shut off, I took a Pascoflair tablet and was anxious for some relief. It did seem to help me calm down and relax and I was able to fall asleep after a little bit. I woke up the next day feeling great.
I’m keeping the box of Pascoflair in my nightstand drawer for the nights I need it. I’m glad it’s there! I appreciate that it’s all-natural, not addictive and that works well for me.
