Kalms - do they work?

Hiya
I have been trying to find a herbal remedy that will work with keeping my calm and preventing bad PAs. Have tried Valerian which made me feel really sick even tho I stuck to the guidelines on the bottle. Have tried Natracalm too which is passiflora and that doesnt do much. Have today bought a bottle of Kalms - any advice on whens best time to take it and how long does it take to work?? Ta. Wenjoy

Hi Wenjoy,
I've tried natracalms and have found them helpful in claming me down for important events suhas exams. I take them according to the instructions on the box and start to take them at the start of the day. I don't rely on them and I don't think they would stop me having a pa, but they do calm me down. They seem to have a mild effect within 30mins. for me.
Have you tried Bach Rescue Remedy drops? They are also very good at taking the edge off.

I hope this helps.

Take care

Shaz

I've been taking Kalms too and i find they help to take the edge off things, I'm sleeping much better which helps. they do have valerian in them though
I also use rescue remedy and an aromatherapy blend for anxiety which i burn and that has helped too

they made me very hyperactive! So do be careful. I use AVENA SATIVA COMP tincture from health shop ( Bioforce), it is superb - if I have a panic in the night 10 drops in a little water - hold it in my mouth and swallow slowly....... and I seem to calm right down and go to sleep - suffer from night terrors / panic attacks, and during the day I always take water with me with about 30-40 drops in and just take small mouthfulls throughout - could not do without it now!

there's a place that I dream of when I sleep, so peaceful, so quite, I call it mother earth.

I take Quiet Life pills. I got them from Asda supermarket (3.50 for 100 tablets). You take 2 twice a day with or after food and 3 at bed time. They are absolutely brilliant. I've tried Kalms and they didn't work for me either. Quiet Life work within half an hour and I really feel the benefit.

Good luck with the test.

Les, xx

Interesting Les, my mother used to swear by quiet lives. think I'll get some. The last time I took them was the night before my wedding, many many moons ago!
