Mad-dog Weed - Alisma plantago-aquatica by 


The Latin, scientific name “Alisma” genus name of the plant also known as Common Water-plantain is derived from the Celtic word for “water” referring to the habitat where it grows, emerging from shallow water of litoral zones.

Extracts of dried leaves are diuretic and a diaphoretic, affecting beneficially renal calculus, cystitis, dysentery and, allegedly epilepsy. Roots have formerly been used to cure hydrophobia, in America it was believed that they can cure rattlesnake bites.

As of epilepsy, hydrophoby and rattlesnake bites I would not bet my life on the ad-dog Weed.
