Menschenschädel (Cranum humanum)



This was considered to be an effective remedy for treating the falling sickness throughout many eras:

"Scrape a little matter from a human scull and administer this over a period of several months. If the patient is a man, the scull must be that of a woman, and vice versa."
(folk remedy from Württemberg)
