If you are going to take Valerian, I would recommend capsules. Valerian tea STINKS. It smells so bad it can literally drive you right out of your own house! I tried putting it in the refrigerator, since someone told me that would help, but it didn't. I would open the refrig. door and almost pass out from it. I know it sounds like I'm exaggerating, but I assure you, I'm not!]
I've read a lot on this subject, since I have almost all of these symptoms and have had them for years, some of them causing real problems, like the waking up during the night over and over one, which destroys your health if it goes on long enough. (I must be a slow learner, lol).
My spouse has none of the symptoms, so I wonder if that means he is not ascending, or does it mean he's so advanced he just doesn't need to have symptoms to adjust??? I've never heard or read anyone commenting on this aspect of it.
