|Rauwolfia serpentina plant|
Rauwolfia is used in the treatment of conditions like hypertension, nervousness and insomnia. It is known in India as the "insanity herb," being recommended in mental disorders. Reserpine and its derivatives are important ingredients in many prescription tranquilizers.
Although also included in folk remedies for cancer, liver disease and mental illness, according to the American Cancer Society, there is no scientific evidence to support these uses. In its native India, the plant has also been used in a paste solution applied topically for the treatment of snakebites and scorpion stings.
