Wild Lettuce helps with Restlessness and Insomnia

On sale right now at NewWayHerbs.com, Wild Lettuce has been considered to be a mild sedative that is known to calm the nerves, treat restlessness, anxiety, severe nervous disorders, neuroses, and has often been used to induce sleep, and treat insomnia and hyperactivity in children. Because it is soothing to the digestive system, it has also been helpful for colic.

Wild Lettuce Leaf, once considered an opium substitute, entered into medical practice as a sedative in the eighteenth century because of its similar, but non-addictive effects. Wild Lettuce has also been used as a diuretic and pain reliever.

It is believed to be an expectorant and has been effective in easing dry, irritating coughs, bronchitis, and asthma, as it helps to loosen and expel phlegm from the respiratory tract.

Used as a diuretic, it helps to promote and increase urine flow and is said to help in cases of urinary tract infections and dropsy (edema), which is the accumulation of fluid in tissues (swelling) or body cavities.

Wild Lettuce has been used to relieve pain, especially muscular pain and the joint pain of arthritis. It is also thought to relieve painful monthly periods.

Wild Lettuce helps to relieve chronic pain, muscle/joint pains, birth pains, headaches, and alleviate cramps.
