Chinese skullcap (Scutellaria baicalensis) and perilla seed extract are recommended by MCAS practitioner Dr. Beth O'Hara for managing inflammatory cytokines caused by mast cell flares. This seems like good information beyond the typical "take vitamin C, quercetin & benadryl" treatment that gets parroted.

I am trying the liquid Huang Qin (Chinese skullcap) recommended in the above post and it seems very soothing and relaxing. I took 8 drops under my tongue last night and I felt very calm and relaxed before bed, like it "hit the spot" and seemed to decrease inflammation rather specifically.
