Traditionally, the green parts of the plant have been employed therapeutically for treating cough, gastrointestinal discomfort and otitis media (tenderness of the middle ear, marked by pain, light-headedness, and damaged hearing). Speedwell is known to possess rich content of vitamins, tannins as well as glycoside aucuboside.
People take veronica for problems with the lungs (respiratory tract), stomach and intestines (gastrointestinal tract), and bladder and kidneys (urinary tract). They also take it for gout, arthritis, muscle and joint pain (rheumatism), loss of appetite, liver problems, and diseases of the spleen.
Veronica is also used as a tonic, to cause sweating, to “purify” blood, and to increase metabolism.
Besides being a digestive aid, speedwell is also a blood cleanser. When made into a tea with stinging nettle tops, it is used to cleanse the blood and help to overcome eczema and other toxins out of the blood and help them overcome senile pruritus flaky skin.
Some people gargle with veronica to treat sore mouth and throat. It is sometimes applied directly to the skin to stop foot perspiration, heal wounds, and treat ongoing skin problems and itching.
