Mahesh Ghandi: Love is my petrol
This case of a patient with sleeplessness shows the flip side of the typical passion and lust for life found in the Lamiaceae. Such a high energy level is in stark contrast to this patient’s depression and exhaustion. The state of exhaustion is especially pronounced in Scutellaria lateriflora: the feeling is being worn out and lifeless. The trigger for this can be overwork or lengthy illness, particularly influenza. There is a pronounced and deep-seated nervous tension, which can have its origins in a difficult family background stretching back to childhood.
