I started taking lemon balm for nighttime tychardia associated with hyperthyroidism and since I've been using it I've not had anymore heart palpitations. Also when I had the flu, I took it and even noticed a reduction in fever and absolutely no bad side effects. This is an herb I highly reccommend.

Comment:
I have hyperthyroid and have been coping with it for quite sometime. What really helped me most was when I started taking lemon balm. Lemon balm is very effective in reducing the symptoms of hyperthyroid especially in getting rid of anxiety and palpitations. It also helped lower my T4 hormones and I've maintained this since then. Highly recommendable for people with hyperthyroid.

I started taking this for my severe anxiety, in a hopeless effort.When I take the dose, it calms me in a matter of minutes. It has also seemingly helped with my depression. Very happy with this product and I would definitely recommend.

Dr. Oz recommended this for stress. I just bought it and it works! just add 1 dropperful to about 8 oz water/glass and works just like Valium only without the side effects. Is great! see http://www.doctoroz.com/videos/your-over-35-survi val-kit
