Child Anxiety
Answered by: Christine Dennis
Question from: Judi
Posted on: September 03, 2009

Can you recommend any herbal treatment to help my 10 year old daughter with her anxiety, shyness and to help ease her timidness in social situations? I know some of this is just her personality but feel that if there were any herbs that could help her be more comfortable and relaxed, I would consider this.

This question has been addressed before. Please go to the following link and used the search term "anxiety". http://www.richters.com/show.cgi?page=QandA/QandA.html

However, I would like to emphasize herbs such as skullcap, valerian root and milky oat straw as well as the importance of a diet rich in foods that help to sooth and relax the nervous system such as essential fatty acids, B vitamins and magnesium.
