It has been used to treat all kinds of skin conditions from leprosy to eczema. And while Eastern herbalists have used it for ulcers, asthma, diarrhea, and even hepatitis, it's used more for skin disorders today than anything else. However, it has several uses.
One untraditional use for gotu kola is to reduce anxiety. People who take gotu kola have fewer problems handling stress and actually have fewer problems with anxiety attacks. It can also be used to help people sleep better at night. It also helps to reduce blood pressure in people who take it.
The rare disease scleroderma also responds favorably to gotu kola. People with scleroderma who take gotu kola have reductions in the hardening of skin and organs, more joint movement, and less joint pain.
If you suffer with problems such as varicose veins and venous insufficiency (when blood pools in the veins), gotu kola can help to relieve your suffering. It helps to make blood vessels more elastic and that helps them to do their job properly.
The most common use for gotu kola is still to treat skin problems. It can help to relieve pain and inflammation from burns, ulcers, and any type of healing wound. It also works to help prevent scar tissue from forming on wounds or surgical incisions.
Gotu kola is an herb that has many uses. If you're having surgery or have had it recently, you may want to use gotu kola to help heal your incision.
