Great at stopping seizures
Posted by Reviewer1331586 on Jul 05, 2006
My husband had a massive stroke at 43, 3 years ago this past March 9th (2003). The doctors had him on a very HIGH dosage of depekote to help diminish TIA's (mini strokes) and seizures. Although my husband never had a seizure while on the perscription medicine, he did have almost constant TIA's which DO kill brain cells. Seizures don't normally unless it is severe but they can kill if severe enough. We started to investigate alternative natural means of medicine and was told about skullcap for seizures. My husband had 2 seizures since leaving perscription drugs altogether. The first time he was not on any vitamins and when rushed to the hospital they flushed 1,500 cc's of depekote into him and it took 1 WEEK for him to get over the drug. Then we went on skullcap and other natural, organic vitamins and he had one other seizure (actually several over the course of 2 hrs) and we were on skullcap but after about an hour and a half I gave him another dose, not knowing if it was ok as my husband refused the hospital. Then almost immediately the seizures reduced their intensity incredibly, but they continued for another 15 minutes and then I just gave him a straight dose about an eighth of a cup full and they STOPPED!!! He hasn't had one since and it has been 10 months ago now. He now can stay awake all day and enjoy life instead of being in a drug enduced world where he could barely get up by 11am and could barely make it to 4:30 in the afternoon w/o going back to bed. He is still paralyzed on his right arm and very labored in his right leg and still cannot put things together but can be by himself all day and have a good life. Praise God for leading my husband and I to skullcap. And I can AFFORD it!
Great TMJ Remedy

Combined with Passion Flower tincture, this preparation is a great nervine. It is especially good for TMJ arising from Bruxism (grinding of the teeth).
calming and healthy

Scullcap by Eclectic Institute is an excellent nerve tonic, and really calms me when I feel on edge and anxious. I find it to be very beneficial at all times.
Great for sleep

A mix of Skullcap with catnip is the perfect remedy for deep and beautiful sleep - no hangover or weird icky feeling I'm very pleased with their quality.
Very good product

I love using skull cap to quiet my mind especially in the evening. The liquid works very quickly and effectively.

Skullcap is the finest I've found to date.

helps me sleep when i am too restless. very good for menstrual cramps and calming any pain in the body. careful not to take too many drops as it may lower blood pressure and blood sugar.

great for sleep..i take it for middle of the night wake-ups when i can't fall back asleep

The alcohol part of this extract is a bit harsh. I would recommend adding to hot water to dissapate. Not that I have bothered...I just take it straight. But it works well.

I am hoping this will help with my neuropathy and also am trying this on my puppy for his seizures. I was told to try this for him by an herbalist. thanks
