> I am looking for a herbal; remedy for anxiety attacks that is not a sedative. I went to a herbalist in ChinaTown and all I was shown is a sedative.

Hi Jim,
I have found California Poppy tincture, 30-90 drops,to be excellent for anxiety. My husband takes it when he has to fly, and it completely takes away his intense anxiety every time. A friend used it when she had to give a lecture, and her fear of public speaking was much lessened.
