Top Herbal Remedies For Essential Tremors

For the essential tremor a sufferer, there are not many true cures on the market.  There are some surgery options, and several prescriptions that may provide relief.

But, right now, if the doctors aren't sure what causes essential tremors.

So for many, it makes sense to look at nontraditional treatment options.

Many people with essential tremors have mentioned as certain herbs can to make their tremors better.  There is no real scientific evidence behind this, just anecdotal evidence from other sufferers.

If you are currently taking prescription meds, it is important to stay in communication with your Doctor about other treatments you may be trying.

The Difficulty With Finding A Cure

Right now, the best we understand about essential tremors, is that it is some type of hereditary or genetic mutation.  Certain things such as its aspartame may make it worse, but even that is not definitive

Best we can decide is that tremors result from some type of misfiring of electrical signals within the brain, most likely located in the thalamus where muscle activity is controlled.

The idea behind herbal treatment, is that it can provide herbal support to the parts of the brain that are most vulnerable and are most likely related to tremors.

So, by using the anecdotal evidence and years of experience herbal treatment, we can draw some analysts and may be helpful for people dealing with essential tremors.

Valerian - Valerian has long been reputed as being a calming herb.  It is thought that it helps increase the GABA levels in the brain, which then helps compensate for blocked or nonfunctioning GABA receptors that may be causing the tremors.

Skullcap - Skullcap is a top candidate for two reasons.  First of all, it seems that may help increase circulation in the brain.  If true, that can only be good.  Secondly, it has a long history of being a calming herb.  And, finally, recent trials that combine it with the Valerian showed that it made the Valerian more effective when treating tremors.

Magnesium - While we often talk about calcium deficiencies, many people don't think about magnesium which is equally important.  It can be a little difficult to detect if you are deficient in magnesium, but it is fairly easy to reintroduce it into your diet.  Balanced magnesium levels help relax muscles, which may be helpful.

- This herb has a well known history, among people with seizures.  There have been some recent studies surrounding Passionflower, and comparing its effectiveness against Oxazepam when used to reduce tremors.  Right now, it appears to be every bit as effective, making this one of top contender for the sensual tremors sufferers to consider.

Kava kava - This one is often considered because it works much like benzodiazepines and that it has a calming effect.  However this herb is easy to overdose on, and will actually make the tremors worse if you overdo it.

Lady Slippers
- Many people use lady slippers as a relaxing herb to help them sleep.  While not a drowsy agent, it does help the brain stop racing and prepares to rest.  If you read reviews on Amazon, there are some people have mentioned helping their hand tremors.
