WILD YAM (Dioscorea villosa)

Wild Yam

DESCRIPTION: More than 600 species of wild yam exist and about 12 are edible. This herb is used a natural alternative to estrogen therapy. The chemical in wild yam can be made into estrogen in a laboratory since the human body cannot convert it on its own.

POTENTIAL BENEFITS: Wild yam is used in estrogen replacement therapy (including to reduce hot flashes), vaginal dryness, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), menstrual cramps and osteoporosis. It also helps to increase energy and sexual drive in men and women, as well as breast enlargement.

POTENTIAL SIDE EFFECTS: Avoid the use of wild yam if you have a hormone-sensitive condition or are nursing or pregnant. Also, individuals with Protein S deficiency should avoid wild yam as it may increase blood clots.

PARTS USED: Root, bulb

GENERAL USAGE: An alternative to estrogen therapy
