Key Uses:Bleeding from injuries, internal bleeding, or menstrual irregularitiesCongestion in the ears, eyes, nose, and chestProfuse, painful uterine bleeding following childbirth or an abortionSevere colicky pain, diarrhea, or painful varicose veins, during pregnancySore nipples and suppressed breast milk after childbirth
Origin : Native to Europe and western Asia, yarrow grows wild in meadows and waste ground in temperate regions.
Background : The Latin name of this plant derives from the warrior Achilles, the Greek hero of the Trojan war, who used yarrow to staunch the wounds of his soldiers. The plant has also been used for centuries in Europe as a bitter tonic.
Preparation : The fresh, flowering aerial parts are chopped and steeped in alcohol.
Remedy Profile : Millefolium best suits those who tend to be most irritable in the evening. Longing for rest but going to bed late, they wake feeling unrefreshed, confused, dizzy, and stupefied, as if drunk. When irritable, they may become overly excitable and violent. Children who fit this profile tend to moan and sigh.
Millefolium is used chiefly for bleeding from injuries, and for internal bleeding and menstrual irregularities, such as delayed or absent menstruation that may lead to convulsions, or heavy menstrual periods that impair fertility. Millefolium may also be given in pregnancy for severe colicky pain, diarrhea, and painful varicose veins, or for recovery from miscarriage. It is used for profuse, painless uterine bleeding following childbirth or an abortion, and for sore nipples and suppressed breast milk after childbirth.
The other key symptom for Millefolium is congestion, associated with piercing pains in the ears, teeth, and temples. There may be congestion in the ears, eyes, nose, and chest.
Symptoms Better : For bleeding; if missed menstruation is reestablished; for wine.
Symptoms Worse : For sleeping or lying down; for doubling over; for lifting; for violent exertion; for injury; for coffee.
