The feelings of panic and anxiety that overcome a person when they are suffering from an attack of agoraphobia can be intense, so much so that it makes living a normal life basically impossible. St. John’s Wort, however, has been trusted for many years as a reliable nervine and sedative agent that can calm the mind, balance hormonal levels and restore peace to people’s lives. St. John’s Wort, known scientifically as Hypericum perforatum, can directly decrease the levels of norepinephrine in the body, thus minimizing the anxiety response of the body and preventing full-scale agoraphobic attacks.
