Tired of the pain and suffering of period cramps? Take control of discomfort with the aid of Caulophyllum thalictroides. Prepared from the blue cohosh plant, this homeopathic medicine provides PMS and menstrual cramp relief for monthly cycles.
Nature’s Blue Beauty
Found among mountains and lowlands of the United States and Canada, Caulophyllum thalictroides, or blue cohosh as it’s commonly known, inhabits shady wooded areas and prefers moist, rich soil that is slightly acidic. It spreads very slowly through rhizomes (or underground stems), which form colonies. However, the ground must be consistently damp and not dry out for this perennial herb to grow.
Blue cohosh blossoms in late spring with stalks sprouting star-shaped yellow-green flowers. Once summer arrives, bright blue berry-like seeds develop at the head. These are poisonous to humans if digested.
“Squaw root” is another name for this plant coming from Native Americans who used it to facilitate delivery and expel the placenta. Herbal blue cohosh supplements are still used today for health problems specific to women.
