1. Historical Use

The "vomiting nut" was used as long ago as the sixteenth century. Germans used it to treat diseases that were heretofore untreatable, including rabies, hysteria and the plague. A hundred years later, the nut found use in veterinary offices but wasn't often used on humans. Some historians believe that strychnine placed in his wine killed Alexander the Great.
