LAVENDER OIL as a first-line treatment for people with anxiety?
A Daily Mail article has reported that leading psychiatrist claims Doctors should dish out LAVENDER OIL as a first-line treatment for people with anxiety instead of addictive drugs.
Professor Peter Hans-Volz said doctors are too quick to dish out benzodiazepines and other drugs to patients with anxiety.
Instead, patients with a mild form of the disorder should be given natural remedies, including lavender oil, to combat their symptoms.
Official guidelines for the NHS say there is not enough evidence that lavender oil, marketed on its calming effects, could treat anxiety.
Why Lavender Oil?
Professor Hans-Volz claimed lavender oil capsules have been shown to be as strong as commonly used anti-anxiety medications.
And he said they come with fewer side effects. He was working alongside Kalms, a lavender oil capsule manufacturer.
Professor Hans-Volz is the medical director of the Hospital for Psychiatry, Psychotherapy and Psychosomatic Medicine in Schloss, Germany.
