SCULLCAP: Wherever a person sees the suffering of hypertension or stress, Scullcap should be thought of at once, to ease the physical effects. Scullcap does not produce a zombie-like effect as drugs often do. Scullcap works to normalize activity and prevent hyperactivity.* Concentration is possible once again. It has been used for treating the bites of mad dogs. From this the determination of this herb once called Mad-dog Scullcap, can be seen. It is not necessary to have hydrophobia to use Scullcap to calm the nerves. In fact, a highly desirable side effect from long term use is repair of the nervous system itself. Nervous twitches and nervous irritation are a specialty of Scullcap.* Epilepsy, convulsions and shaking, poisonous insect bites and snake bites have all been remedied by use of Scullcap.* The Dispensatory of the United States highly recommends its use on the authority of Dr. Cleaveland and others as a treatment for delirium tremens (alcoholic hallucinations). He indicates that he prefers it to all other nervines or antispasmodics except where an immediate effect is desirable. For those who suffer from insomnia, persistent use of Scullcap should definitely be considered.* DOSAGE: 10 to 40 drops three to four times per day or as needed for sleeping.
