Herbs for muscle relaxation?

Dear Stephen,
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?

Stephen’s response:
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.
