9. Green Tea

Green tea also has a positive impact on your nervous system. The amino acid known as L-theanine in green tea helps increase levels of dopamine and serotonin. This in turn improves mood and reduces stress.

Furthermore, the caffeine in green tea helps increase alertness, focus, concentration and thinking ability. Also, the antioxidants in it benefit the cardiovascular autonomic nervous system and reduce the risk of cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.

  1. Add 1 teaspoon of green tea leaves or a green tea bag to a cup of hot water.
  2. Cover and steep for 5 minutes.
  3. Strain, sweeten with raw honey and drink it.
  4. Drink only 2 to 3 cups of green tea daily.

10. Chamomile

Chamomile is a popular herb that can be used as a mild sedative to calm nerves and reduce anxiety. It can even treat hysteria, nightmares, insomnia and other sleep problems.

A 2012 study published in Phytotherapy Research found positive effects of chamomile essential oil on central nervous system functioning.

  • Add 2 teaspoons of dried chamomile to a cup of hot water. Cover and steep for 5 minutes. Strain, add raw honey for taste and drink it. Drink 2 to 3 cups of chamomile tea daily.
  • Also, add a few drops of chamomile essential oil to warm bathwater and soak in it for 15 minutes to soothe your nerves.

Additional Tips

  • Do not smoke or use other tobacco products.
  • Get plenty of rest and sleep after a long, hectic day.
  • Get blood sugar and high blood pressure under control.
  • Drink plenty of water and other fluids, as dehydration is not good for the nervous system.
  • Limit your intake of caffeinated as well as alcoholic drinks.
  • Strive to learn new skills to increase your attention span and keep you focused.
  • End a bath with a few seconds of a cold shower to stimulate your nervous system. However, avoid the head region.
  • Do not use non-prescribed medicines.
  • Protect yourself from head injuries and accidents.

  3. I got sick last year April and admitted in hospital for 6 months and I was diagnosed with TB meningitis. Since then I could walk and now am using wheelchair and a Walker, I can stand up straight on my own but I walk. My legs are numb but early this year I couldn’t feel anything but now the feelings are back. It is still difficult to walk as am trying to use crushes to get balance but I only take only about 100 meters to walk. Is there any possibility that I gain back my nerves on my legs? What can I do? What can I eat? What exercises can I do that will suit my situation?.

  7. Hi my name is Caroline. I just started drinking green tea, well 3 weeks ago. My nervous system is not good. I think it will take time but will green tea really help calm my nerves. Thank you for any advice u can give me. I have improved my diet, no sugar I eat my meals and just fruit and drink plenty of water and 2 or 3 cups green tea or camomile tea a day. I don’t eat after my meal at 5 or 6 o’clock. So I’m doing all I can to help myself. I was at my doctor 4 weeks ago and my blood pressure was very high, I see him again in a months time it will be interesting to see how my blood pressure will be as I started diet after that. Thank you for any help you can offer me. Best wishes. Caroline.
