  • That it's bad. There was some questions on here yesterday or the day before about castrol oil and labor starters and some lady answered about black and blue cohosh that it was not a good thing at all and very bad. She listed some things for putting u in labor or helping with it. just rummage through some questions from yesterday and the day before.

  • Black Cohosh has a most powerful action as a relaxant and a normalizer of the female reproductive system. It may be used beneficially in cases of painful or delayed menstruating, ovarian cramps or cramping pain in the womb. It has a normalizing action on the balance of female sex hormones and may safely be used to regain normal hormonal activity. It is very active in the treatment of rheumatic pains, rheumatoid arthritis, osteo-arthritis, and in muscular and neurological pain. It finds use in sciatica and neuralgia. As a relaxing nervine it may be used in many situations where such an agent is needed. It will be useful in labor to aid uterine activity while also allaying nervousness. Black Cohosh will reduce spasms and so aid in the treatment of pulmonary complaints such as whooping cough. It has been found beneficial in cases of tinnitus.

    For uterine conditions combine with Blue Cohosh.

    Taken from "Holistic Herbal"
