Black Cohosh is a distinctive women's remedy. It stimulates delayed menses while relaxing the muscles around the uterine area and helps menstrual cramps. It can help PMS symptoms and help to regulate a woman back into a more normal cycle. It can also help amenorrhea and dysmenorrhea.
It is also a famous remedy for menopause. German studies show that Black Cohosh will diminish negative side effects of menopause by decreasing hot flashes and irritability. It fools the pituitary from looking for leutinizing hormone (which diminishes in menopause just like estrogen and progesterone). This results in a decrease in the above mentioned symptoms.
Black Cohosh has been used by Native Americans to assist in labor. If used in the last 3 weeks of pregnancy (week 38-40) or even later if one has gone beyond their due date, Black Cohosh will help to bring on strong pre-labor contractions and prepare the uterus for birth. It should not be used any earlier in pregnancy as it can cause a miscarriage.
Black Cohosh is also effective for rheumatic, joint and muscle pains.
CAUTION: Should not be used during pregnancy until birth is imminent. Should not be used in the presence of chronic disease.
