Gotu Kola contains substances that are used to build brain chemicals (neurotransmitters) instrumental in memory and learning, and may hold promise in slowing the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. They may also improve learning in some children with developmental disorders. Gotu kola appears to be most useful in building healthy connective tissue, thereby reducing formation of scar tissue. It may also improve circulation, probably by strengthening the walls of veins and other blood vessels. It is commonly used to promote skin healing, including that of psoriasis, syphilis, and leprosy; to reduce the scarring of surgical incisions; to treat varicose veins and improve circulation; to rebuild connective tissue; and to improve memory while slowing the ageing process.
Gotu Kola has been used to treat varicose veins and to reduce phlebitis. A standardized extract called TECA has been shown to speed the healing of burns, skin ulcers, skin grafts, and surgical incisions. It not only promoted healing but also reduced the formation of scar tissue. In another small study involving patients with severe psoriasis, five of the seven participants had their skin lesions disappear within seven weeks. Many other studies have demonstrated its effectiveness in learning disabilities, reducing pain and swelling, and killing of cancer cells in a lab culture. The herb can be taken internally for these conditions or used in compresses for external conditions. The only side effect is that it can cause drowsiness if taken in very large doses.
Gingko Biloba leaves, fresh or dried, are used to improve circulation, especially to the brain, and to maintain a plentiful blood flow to the central nervous system. Tablets/capsules are taken for poor circulation and memory loss. The primary benefits of ginkgo seem to derive from its ability to promote the dilation of blood vessels, which improves blood flow throughout the body. This prevents the buildup of fluid (edema), reducing a wide range of disorders affecting the legs, brain, eyes, ears, and other organs.
In addition, it seems to inhibit the formation of blood clots and functions as an antioxidant, reducing the cellular damage caused by free radicals. It may also affect such brain chemicals (neurotransmitters) as norpinephrine, serotonin, monoamine oxidase, acetylcholine, and nitric oxide, as well as inhibiting the synthesis of corticosteroids, as well as to enhance energy and reduce depression.
Myrrh has long been used for cancers, leprosy, syphilis, sores, sore throats, asthma, coughs, bad breath, weak gums, and loose teeth. Currently, it is used for treating such conditions as those involving bleeding, pain, and wounds, as hemorrhoids, menstrual difficulties, tumors, and arthritis. Since myrrh is not soluble in water, it cannot be taken in the form of an infusion, but only in powder or tincture form.
