History: Valerian Root has been used medicinally for over 2000 years in both Europe and Asia as a sedative and cure for insomnia. Pedanius Dioscorides, a Greek physician, described the healing abilities of the root as early as 40 AD; while Hippocrates, the Greek physician who is known as the father of modern medicine, prescribed Valerian Root to Alexander the Great. Valerian Root eventually came to North American as a transplant and has since been used by many Native American Indian tribes. The Blackfoot Indians used Valerian to treat stomach problems, and the Hompson Indians of western Canada used it to treat cuts and wounds.
