Wild Yam Root Tea can be made into a delicious hot drink by decocting the wild yam root into boiling water. Use 1-2 teaspoons per cup of boiling water and simmer for 3-10 minutes depending on taste. Then strain and serve.


1-2 teaspoons dried root per 1 cup of boiling water, up to 3 times a day.

Pure wild yam root dried pieces.

Women with hormone-dependent conditions such as endometriosis, uterine fibroids, and cancers of the breast, ovaries, or uterus should not take or use wild yam due to its possible estrogenic effects. Men with prostate cancer should also avoid taking wild yam.

Pregnant women should not take wild yam because it may stimulate the uterus to contract, possibly causing a miscarriage.

Because very little information is available on how wild yam might affect an infant or a small child, its use is not recommended while breast-feeding or during early childhood.
