Wow - what a perfect #theherbalhive post. Anecdotes and science - this is definitely my kind of post!!!! I think the placebo effect is pretty strong, but still, so are herbs. Sometimes we can't explain what medicine we're drawn to either - there may not be a scientific rational reason for why your Dad was munching on those seeds and it does sound more ethnocultural too - but that's incredible that you discovered that it might be helping him and I was fascinating to hear of this plant and it's use by Yoruba as well. Thanks so much for sharing - am including this post in today's collection.
