Herbs for muscle relaxation?
I just started your protocol for lyme within the last few weeks but my question is about lobelia. Do you recommend this herb for muscle relaxation? I have been using it for about 1 month and it seems to be relieving some chronic muscle spasms, just a bit, in my neck caused by the lyme. I am, however, concerned about dosage and long term use. Some references recommend using this with cayenne to counteract any fatigue brought on by using it. Any advice?
Lobelia is an interesting plant with a long history and much controversy. It can help in this way but is not one of the herbs that I have used a lot. I primarily use American wood betony (pedicularis spp) and motherwort for muscle relaxation—a combination tincture, equal parts, 1 tsp 3x daily.
