Mother's Plant Tonic: As the common name suggests, motherwort has long been associated with aiding mothers and women. It has a strong history of use in both Europe and Asia. Chinese physicians have reportedly used their own species of Motherwort (Leonurus siberica) for menstrual problems since at least 100 A.D. Motherwort is an emmenagogue, which is an herb that is used to promote delayed menstruation and is used for scanty menstruation or cramps associated with delayed menstruation. Many herbalists recommend using it regularly to tone the uterus, which can reduce menstrual cramping in the future.
Motherwort has long been praised for its ability to help women with delayed labor or to help dispel the afterbirth postpartum. Professor John King and Finley Ellingwood (Eclectic herbalists) reported excellent results with motherwort for helping to expel the suppressed lochia (uterine secretions after childbirth).
Motherwort is also a mild hypotensive herb and can be used to decrease hypertension, especially when it is associated with extreme emotions. In one clinical study, an extract of motherwort was given to fifty patients with hypertension accompanied by anxiety and sleep disorders. After 28 days of use, 80% of the patients reported significant to moderate benefits in their anxiety and depression levels. -Shikov, Alexander N, Olga Pozharitskaya, Valery G Makarov, Dmitry Demchenko, and Evgenia Shikh.
