    Herbs like Camomile, Skullcap, Valerian are quite strong and can help balance the parasympathetic nervous system with the symphathetic.
    Peppermint can also help as a relaxant for smooth muscle. Lavender is another idea. Lavender flowers can be drunk as a tea.
    Also possibly melatonin supplements? Meditation may also help.
    It doesn't always have to be about benzos.

    I don't know an awful lot about dysautonomia, but know something about herbs, having worked with them since the 80s.

    With all the different diets recommended, I find the approach of the late Dr. Nicolas Gonzales interesting, in that he prescribed a specific diet according to dominance in his cancer practice. Here the notes I jotted down from one of his interviews:

    Two links with discussions of him:

    Since I've been basically vegan for 30 years and after getting really sick at age 40, I gradually added eggs, fish and even a bid (organically raised) beef back in. Since I did experience a remission (from PAD) 4 years ago, additionally to diet changes also really did well on high doses of all nutrients mentioned, I assume to match the mixed type best.
