Anger Issues, Kava Kava

Do you know if there are any herbs that can be taken to help a person who has anger issues? I was thinking about Kava Kava and St. John’s Wort. If Kava Kava is taken for more than 3 months what would be the result?

From a holistic health perspective, there are many emotional and physical causes for anger issues. It really is best to determine what is the underlying cause and treat appropriately. Nervines such as kava kava and St. John’s wort can help to relax the nervous system to help to reduce an angry response but they are not going to stop them completely. Kava kava can be taken effectively for 3 months without any problems but again it is just a "band-aid" over the real issue.

For other suggestion regarding anger issues, please see: http://www.richters.com/show.cgi?page=./QandA/Medicinal/20070903-3.html
