Indian Avuredic medicine (a tradition of oral medicine passed
on orally for thousands of years before being first written
down in 600 B.C.) snake root(rauwolfia serpentina)
was used to treat bites by posionus
reptiles and insects, insomnia, mental illness, diarrhera,
dysentary, fight fever, and to cause contractins of the
uterus. Today, villagers in India give it to their chiledren
to help them sleep..
It is also used for meditation. Ghandhi is said to have
chewed on chewed on snakeroot while meditating. He also
drank a tea made from snakeroot before going to bed.
The root has 500 alakaolids of which the western science
used only one. This is typical of western science.
(Hey, you got to cut costs somewhere i guess. You gotta pay those
Researchers big bucks) So instead you, isolate the plant down to
the one alakaloid and throw out the rest. Ignore the
intereactins of the the other chemicals in the plant.
Snakeroot was used for treting people with mental illness
for thousands of years in India. Wheras, Western Science
prefered using the latest technology; Lombotomy, surgical removal
of the brain or straight jackets and restriants;
They could not believe that a medicine would bring about changes
in a patient.
So, when western science, back in the 1950's, saw that snakeroot
actually worked in treating mental illness they were blown away
and invented scores of similar drugs for treating mental illness
that we use today. Prior to the use of drugs western science
really had no cure for mental illness..
Snakeroot was a revelation... and the start of
psychotic drugs. Psychotic drugs do not have the full strength and
interaction of all the chemicals found in snakeroot..
The primary alakolid in snakeroot is reperine. it acts on
the sympathetic nervous system to reduce vascular resistence
and reduce the heart rate. The term "tranquilizer" was used
by western scientist to describe it effects on the central
nevrous system.. Resperine is still used to treat high
blood presure and as a tranquiler.
Mahatma Gahdhi chewed snakeroot
"The great value of snakeroot lies in its not requiring
to be administered in critcal dosages, rare side efects, non-habit
forming, without withdrawal symptoms or contraindiction"
--James Duke, PHD
Interesting, resperine in western medicine is not give to some
mental illness as the AMA claims it leads to psychoitic
depression and suicide and affects blood pressure.
Snakeroot and mongoose myth:
The mongooses have been observed to eat sankeroot before fighting
with cobras. This is a rummor. The mongose fluffs out its
hair while fighting, and the cobra's fangs are short.
