Effectively treats inflammation, fever, appetite, nosebleeds, excessive menstruation, diarrhea and more. Commission E found yarrow useful for treating loss of appetite, mild discomfort of the gastrointestinal tract, and upset stomach when used internally. The commission recommends yarrow to be used externally, in a sits bath, for "painful, cramp-like conditions of psychosomatic origin in the lower part of the female pelvis". The commission didn't address traditional, and decidedly non-psychosomatic, uses of yarrow in healing wounds, or new ones suggested in studies for treating hepatitis.
The herb is traditionally used to treat arthritis, fever, the common cold and hypertension. It is nowadays mainly recommended for lack of appetite and minor dyspeptic complaints. For external use, it is added to bath water to treat pelvic autonomic dysfunction (painful cramp-like conditions of the lower pelvis in women).
Cautions: Not recommended if you are pregnant or lactating. Do not exceed recommended dosage as overuse may cause skin photo sensitivity, dizziness and headaches in some people. Yarrow causes allergies in some people, producing a nasty rash. Commission E reports no known drug interactions or contraindications. However, the prevention magazine book Nature's Medicines advises pregnant women to steer clear of medicinal quantities of yarrow. Fresh plants may cause dermatitis in sensitive people.
