Skullcap - Skutellaria lateriflora
The following is excerpted from the Health Search newspaper published by Wilson Publications, Owensboro, KY 42303
According to The Eclectic Materia Medica , Pharmacology and Therapeutics (1985) by Harvey Wickes Felter, M.D., specific indications for skullcap are nervousness, attending or following an illness, or from mental or physical exhaustion or teething; nervousness with muscular excitation; tremors, hysteria, with inability to control muscular action; functional heart disorders of a purely nervous type, with intermittent pulse.

Skullcap is calmative to the nervous and muscular systems and offers some tonic properties. By controlling nervous irritability and muscular incoordination, it gives rest and permits sleep. When insomnia is due to worry or nervous irritability or even exhaustion, Dr. Felter says relief may be expected.

According to the Wild Rose College of Natural Healing, skullcap's major influence is on the central and sympathetic nervous systems. Traditionally, skullcap has been used for many purposes including neuralgia, insomnia, excitability, restlessness, rickets, headaches, hiccoughs, incessant coughing, hypertension and nervous disorders. It has antispasmodic, nervine, antihistamine and anti-inflammatory properties. Skullcap has no toxicity.
