Red Raspberry Leaf tea is a wonder herb. It is a galactagogue, meaning it will increase your milk supply. It is also chock full of minerals, vitamin, and nutrients, very nourishing. It helps to balance the body, so I have found it to be very good for my moods, and the hormonal ups and downs. It also could help with the fatigue. But you should also be getting a good supply of nutrients in your food. Are you aeting enough dark green leafy vegetables? Adding Kale, Spinich and Chard etc can really boost your system.
As far as Cholesterol I would make sure that you are getting enough good fats. Try taking Flax oil in good size quantities. I would take 2 capsules 2-4 times a day for 6 weeks and then get your levels checked again. Flax, Salmon oil, avocados, these all provide essential fats that your body needs. If you don't get the fat syou need, your body starts hanging on to whatever it can get, ie bad fats.
I have always done well with valerian, you could start with a low dose to get use to it. I never got a herbal hangover or anything, but you need to figure out what level of sedatve is good for you. If you are sensitive, you could start with Chamomile tea or tincture. Kava Kava is a little stronger than valerian but is also mild enough that alot of people have no hangover or side effects. One thing that is pretty rough on the body for alot of people is melatonin, I wouldn't recommend trying this unless you try all of the milder herbs with no success.
As far as general well being? Eat foods in their most natural state, whole unrefined grains, fruits veggies, drink lots of water. Take vit c every day. You sound like you might be suffering from stress also, so I would recommend taking a B complex until things calm down for you. Your body dumps b vitamins when it is over stressed so you may want to replenish them.
Reading over my post I cannot believe I wrote all of that!!! I HTH. Feel Better!
