You feel a little bit broken rose is an incredible herb, and it's available for all of us. Okay. Valerian so Larry, and that's another very well studied herb used a lot again in Russia, and that really calms the system down. It's what the medicine valium was originally made from. It's amazing. It works. So well, sometimes it puts people to sleep. So it's very commonly used for as a sleep aid. Can you mix it with passion flower? Of course, you can. But a lot of my clients, take it. They don't feel tired at all. It's so funny that you're saying I had a client. She calls me three times a year. Here's her conversation HANA. Yeah. Because I don't know if I've really ever discussed this with you. I'm like, uh-huh. She's like, you know, I I'm just feeling like depressed and down. I'm like, oh is this a new feeling, you know, so HANA like everything's fine in my life. I'm getting along with my husband. I don't know what it is. And I always laughing inside. I'm like, well, can you go to your cabinet and see if you have an herb they're called Valerian? She goes Valeria because. Yes, here's goes. What do I use it for? I'm like this exact situation. She takes it for about a week. She calls them. She goes. Oh my gosh. I feel so much better. I'm like, I know. I know we've been doing this for years. So what happens is when you are in that kind of desperate state. And you take these herbs. They feel better and they get you out of the rut. And then when you're feeling better. You just kind of forget to take 'em George so people say to me, can you get addicted to these herbs, and I'm like we live such busy lives. Once you're feeling less. Sad less frustrated feeling more in control. You're gonna forget to take it. You're going to go off of it on your own. And then you gotta remember it's there when you feel it again, why do why do we need the herbs? Why can't we just do it within ourselves because we have chemicals flooding around us all the time people that are living in big cities. We've got hormonal disruptors in the pesticides in our food. We've got smog we've got traffic. I mean, not everybody's living in rural areas. And you know, we all need a little hand holding herbs had been used for thousands of years. There used all over the world who did a study. And I'm not quoting it. Exactly. But it was something like they interviewed women outside the US and like eighty five percent of people were. Worldwide. We're using herbs and didn't even think of it as herbs. Oh, when your adolescent time, you take this or Peri menopause. You take this herb. So we as Americans have just lost this guest. And the reason we need them because life is hard George bad things happen to good people things happen at work things happen. A relationships your heart beats faster you become nervous. And these herbs just calm down. I mean, it's kind of like, you know, Sleepytime t that's an herb. I mean, you sit down at the end of the day puts them Sleepytime t in a Cup. Put some Honey in it. And usually feel better Americans don't have ti- time. We don't have that in our culture anymore. And it's here for a store. I mean, you asked me why do people need it? Why are one out of five people on psychotropic meds? We're struggling. We are struggling there's no question about it. Now, do doctors appreciate the fact that you bring them these alternatives. Well, I have a lot of doctors that our clients, and they'll come in to me and say there is no way I'm going on medication. There is no end going to the side. Let's give herbs a try. And you know, sometimes you have to experiment with herb says you have to try different combinations. It's not like the first you're gonna take like magic, boom. I'm better play around with it for a little bit. You may need to take more of a dose less of a dose. Some people need to take it once a day twice a day. But once you find your herbal combination. It's there for you. It's on your shelf. It's in your briefcase is in your backpack. And I would love to say that, you know, deep breathing. Meditating positive information is enough. But my office is flooded. It's not enough. People will come in to me and say deep breathing. I'm lucky if I can, you know, take breath in between all my clients at work. So the herbs I mean, it's just like food think of herbs. As food you need onions, you need garlic. You need lettuce except romaine right now, you need cucumbers, you need green beans. These are all plants that grow in those plants make us feel stronger. So if you're in an emotional state, for instance, you're hormonal and grumpy and depressed, there's an herb called mother war with just kind of calms it down takes that black cloud away. And then there's all these trace vitamins and minerals 'cause it's a plant food that gives your body nutrition. So whenever you take herbs for emotional stress. You're also getting vitamins and nutrients to make you feel stronger and re- revitalize you now with everything that's been going on in this planet. These days do you find or what do you find to be the most pressing issue that you would like to fix if you could you mean with my clients emotionally with people in general? I mean, I think depression is really big I feel people had a lot of money, and they were depressed and don't have enough money in their depressed and don't have enough Instagram followers. And you know, what I'm saying? Like, I find that. There's this lack of satisfaction in the world were not having so much interaction with people like we used to families are shrinking and disintegrating. So that's what I feel is is really going on. I mean, that's why in the book new Tokyo, besides herb, which you can tell I'm so passionate about talk about things like random acts of kindness because when you're in a state of feeling sad and gloomy you need to go out there and work in a soup kitchen. I mean, it's great that everybody does it on thanksgiving. But you need to do it more. And when we get caught up in. We don't have enough were not as successful. We're not doing what we wanna do. If you go out there and help people all of a sudden, you realize you do have a lot more than you. I thought you did. All right. Let's go to the phones citizens with us in San Li unroll, California, first time caller. Hey said, hey, George, you did a good job with San Leandro. That's that's right. Thank you. In fact, you were here about six years ago a theater rest what the blaze that you took time to let everybody come by and shake your hand. Then at a few words with you. Thank you for that. Sure thing. What I want to say is that I worked in the psychiatry as a psychiatric technician for thirty nine years on lock units. And I want to commend the young lady for for. I think really knowing what she's talking about. I I think there's a lot of these sad. Far far far trying to kinds of things that she's talking about the before you get two for the more severe forms that depression or are different types of mental illness going to the medications, I I can tell you for sure without a doubt. Are there are forms after oppression? Of course, gets a perennial manic depression. Manic depressive illness that seven. The person that families going through that are in very dangerous situations, and and the medications are I can say is thank God for all the people who work many long hours in laboratories developing it because they're they're really what if when you get to a really dangerous situation with with patients there..
