Remedy Profile

Common name:       Black snakeroot, black cohosh, cohosh bugbane, rattle root.

Source:                   Grows in North America.

Parts used:              Fresh root and rhizome.

Background

This North American plant's genus name is derived from the Latin words cimex, "bug" and fugere "to flee" which is a reference to its properties as an insect repellent. The rhizome of the plant was also used rattlesnake bites (hence its common name rattle root) and for menstrual and labor pains. Its root was also chewed as a sedative and to alleviate depression. Today in herbalism the root is still used as a diuretic, a cough suppressant, and to reduce inflammation, and rheumatic pain.

Inducing Labour

The two most common homeopathic remedies used to induce labour are Cimicifuga and Caulophyllum.  These are often prescribed by midwives and naturopathic doctors to "prepare" the uterus for labour.  Your body has its own system in place to prepare for labour.  If you are overdue then you need to find the correct remedy that matches your fear.  It is seldom a physical problem that holds women back from birth - it is your head that is interfering with the natural, wise  process of your body.

 

 If you can access exactly what your fear is you can shift it with a remedy and glide into labour.

 

 Cimicifuga and Caulophyllum are remedies that are wonderful to augment labour ONCE it is happening.  These remedies will encourage contractions once the cervix has started dilating and you are having contractions.  I suggest taking them in the following manner:

 

Cimicifuga 15C or 30C - 2 pellets 

allow them to dissolve and then take

 

Caulophyllum 15C or 30C - 2 pellets 

repeat this every 15 min. for one hour
so you have taken a total of four doses of each remedy.
