Jamaica dogwood is well known as a traditional remedy for treating migraine and neuralgia (severe stabbing nerve pain). Jamaica dogwoods were used for its narcotic, analgesic and sweat promoting properties as early as 1844. It has been used primarily as a remedy for insomnia, anxiety, fear, and nervous breakdown, dysmenorrhea (painful menstruation), violent toothaches and menstrual cramps. The bark decoction of Jamaica dogwood has been used as an herbal remedy to help relieve cough and cough. For insomnia it is best combined with hops and valerian and it may be combined with black haw as a natural treatment for dysmenorrhea. It has been used to promote sweating, to relieve muscle spasms and as a remedy to reduce fever and inflammation. Jamaican dogwood has been used throughout Central and South America as a fish poison. It contains a substance known as ‘rotenone’ that is used in insecticides to control lice, fleas and larvae. The component rotenone is not considered to be toxic to warm-blooded animals, including humans. http://www.herbal-supplement-resource.com/jamaica-dogwood-bark.html
