Our new book to be released soon is Edible Shrubs. Seed - sow in an outdoor seedbed in April. It might be better to sow the seed in the autumn in a cold frame or greenhouse[K]. If seed is in short supply we would recommend sowing it in a pot in a cold frame and pricking out the seedlings into individual pots as soon as they are large enough to handle. Plant them out into their permanent positions in late spring of the following year. Right plant wrong place. We are currently updating this section.

Epilepsy is a chronic neurological disease which disrupts the neuronal electrical activity. One-third of patients are resistant to treatment with available antiepileptic agents. The use of herbal medicine for treating several diseases including epilepsy is on the rise. Therefore, further investigation is required to verify the safety and effectiveness of Phytomedicine in treating diseases. The current study is an attempt to elucidate the electrophysiological mechanism of the effect of Dorema ammoniacum gum on a cellular model of epilepsy, using intracellular recording method. The gum was applied either after or before pentylenetetrazole, as an epileptic drug, in order to explore the possible therapeutic and preventive effects of gum.
Dorema ammoniacum D.Don
Ammoniacum , or gum ammoniac , is a gum - resin exuded from the stem of the perennial herb Dorema ammoniacum of the umbel family Apiaceae. This juice quickly hardens into round tears, forming the "tear ammoniacum" of commerce. Ammoniacum has a faintly fetid, unpleasant odor , which becomes more distinct on heating; externally, it possesses a reddish-yellow appearance, and when the tears or lumps are freshly fractured they exhibit a waxy luster. It is chiefly collected in central Persia , and comes to the European market by way of Bombay.
