This week's herb is an amazing adaptogen! I use Rhodiola almost daily in my practice. Why I haven't featured it before - who knows!
This herb helps your body modulate catecholamines (epinephrine, norepinephrine, dopamine), serotonin, and acetylcholine. These are a lot of big words that make this herb great at helping to relieve stress, adrenal fatigue, hypothyroidism, fibromyalgia, depression, anxiety..... I could go on all day!
Like any medication there can be side effects when taking herbal medications. Some individuals can experience some insomnia if taking rhodiola in the evening.
Do you think rhodiola could be the right herb for you? Call the clinic and find out today!
