Fu Fang Zaoren Jiaonang was marketed in Canada as a natural remedy for insomnia and anxiety. Unfortunately, government officials discovered that its active ingredient (L-tetrahydropalmatine) could damage your liver and other internal organs in as little as two weeks.
Fortunately, Health Canada has now removed the product from sale - but it just goes to show that an insomnia remedy that's marketed as 'natural', doesn't necessarily come without risks or potential side-effects.
When it comes to natural insomnia remedies, I think focussing on the mind is a better alternative to pills of any kind. Our members hold programs such as Sleep Tracks, Panic Away and the Linden Method in very high regard.
