Motherwort / Leonurus cardiaca Tincture
Motherwort has been recommended specifically for the treatment of alcohol addiction, but it may also be a valuable supplement for the treatment of other addictions too. It works with the heart and root chakras and can be good for recovering addicts who have experienced PTSD, heartbreak, or extreme grief, particularly if these experiences relate directly to the development of the addiction.
Motherwort relaxes the body and restores the nervous system. It can also regulate heart arrhythmias, reduce anxiety, and improve mood (particularly in women).
Take 1 dropperful of this tincture 2-4 times per day between meals as part of a supplementation protocol for addiction treatment.
Leonurus cardiaca should not be taken during pregnancy as it can stimulate the uterus and may lead to miscarriage. It should also be avoided by women who are breastfeeding.
