Betony is a plant. The parts that grow above the ground are dried and used to make medicine.

– Wood betony has sedative actions, which may contribute in alleviating stress and relaxing the mind.
– Wood betony may help to relieve asthma and respiratory infections like pneumonia and bronchitis.
– It is also used as a treatment for headaches. This has been attributed to glycosides, an important constituent of wood betony.
– As wood betony contains tannins, it displays astringent properties, making it ideal for the treatment of diarrhea. The astringency effect of wood betony absorbs fluids from the intestine, thereby helping to reduce bowel movement.
– Wood betony displays diuretic activity, which helps to increase urinary rate. This may help to eliminate toxins from the urinary system, in turn enhancing kidney function.
– Traditionally, usage of wood betony has been involved in treating menstrual problems. It may help to relieve discomfort associated with menstrual cramps.
– Wood betony is thought to remove impurities from the blood, which may contribute in improving the function of liver, gallbladder, and the spleen.
To make an infusion, place 1-2 teaspoons of dried herb in a tea infuser or teapot or mug for each cup of tea you intend to brew. Cover with boiling water. Place on the lid (or cover your cup with a saucer). Allow the mixture to steep for 10' to 15' minutes or overnight. Then strain the tea and serve. Drink 1-3 cups of tea a day. Don't over steep, it will get bitter.
Betony is generally considered safe to use, but it might cause stomach upset in some people. Pregnant women should avoid taking wood betony in any form, as it can induce uterine contractions, which may lead to miscarriage. In any case you should consult with your healthcare doctor before using any herb especially if you’re taking other medications or having health problems.
