Like most parents of autistic children, I am constantly looking for ways to find solutions to symptoms and behavior issues that are linked with my son's autism.
One of the most frustrating problems that has developed since he has become a pre-teen adolescent is aggression.
Drug therapies are commonly prescribed to treat this particular issue, however, the negative side effects on kids under 16 caused by these drug therapies made me look for another solution, and I found one, the Nerves Formula sold by DHerbs.
The Nerves Formula
I have always preferred to use herbal remedies over manufactured drugs, however, in the past I have had mixed results. Many herbal formulas do not deliver what they claim, however, I was pleasantly surprised that this product did deliver results quickly. Nerves Formula, as its name suggests, is designed to help balance your emotional state. It is advertised as a herbal substitute for anti-depressants like Prozak®, which is a common drug prescribed to kids with autism who have problems with depression and aggression.
The ingredients in this herbal product are commonly used separately to treat depression and mood disorders, however, used together, they help the body to naturally balance. The ingredient list includes: valerian root, kava kava, passionflower, mistletoe, catnip, Saint John's Wort, marjoram, lemon balm, lavender flower, wild yam root, jatamansi, Irish Moss, blue vervain, skullcap, hops, oatstraw, wild lettuce, jasmine flower, linden flower and Lady's Slipper Root.
Like any other herbal product, I found that it is a good idea to start out with one capsule and work your way up to the recommended dosage, especially when working with kids under 18. Before using on a child you need to talk to their doctor to make sure that the ingredients will not interfere with medications that they are taking and that they are safe for kids to take. The recommended dosage is three capsules a day taken with a full glass of water.
Pros and Cons of Nerve Formula
Let's start with the cons. The capsules are large and people who have small throats may find it difficult to swallow. You can overcome this problem by pulling the capsule apart and dumping out the contents. The taste of the herbs is grassy so you will need to mix them with something to make them palatable. My son likes mashed potatoes so that is what I mixed them with. Besides taste and size, that's all the cons I can think of.

I suffer from seasonal depression, and as I mentioned earlier my son is autistic and had a problem with aggression and mood swings. I tested the product before putting him on them and found that it quickly helped to stabilize my mood without making me feel "funny." I also found that I was able to fall asleep easier because I wasn't so tense when I went to bed. This was great because I also have seasonal bouts with insomnia.
My dosage was one pill three times a day. I found that this helped to keep me balanced all day and night. For my son, who is 5 foot 6 inches tall and 145 pounds, took the same regime of the herbal product. I noticed right away that it made him sleepy so we scheduled his doses for lunch, dinner and before bed.
His mood stabilized and his physical outbursts were reduced dramatically. He also demonstrated fewer mood swings, repetitive motion sessions and he was less sensitive to sensory stimuli.
Overall I love this product. Compare this to the cost of a one month supply of Prozac and you will see a huge cost savings. This product has no side effects like prescription anti-depressants have, it is effective and it is safe for just about everyone. Like any herbal product, I recommend that you talk with your doctor to make sure the ingredients are safe for you, your medical conditions, age, etc.
I would highly recommend this product to anyone who suffers with depression, seasonal or chronic.
