Hot Flashes, Estrogen, PMS

Wildcrafted here at Highwinds Farm, found under a variety of names, Black Cohosh Root (also known as Black Snake Root, macrotys, Bugbane, bugwort, rattleweed, rattleroot,  is an herb whose lore can be traced back to the Native American Indians, who then taught their medicinal practices to the local settlers. This is where it became a traditional home remedy and gained most of its common names, as it was commonly used as a treatment for snakebites for quite some time. During the 19th century it was also used for treating kidney stones, malaria, malaise, rheumatism, sore throat, and many other symptoms.

More modern herbalism has found that Black Cohosh root is still quite useful in treating gynecological disorders and various symptoms women experience during their normal bodily changes. Primarily this means that it is used in treating hotflashes, and other, similar, menopausal symptoms. The scientific community debates its usefulness in this and so their verdict is largely out until larger scale studies can be undertaken
