Wild Yam root has a long 'bilious' history and was both recognized and used by physicians in the Army of Confederate States during the Civil War for abdominal cramps and bilious colic and Mexican Wild Yam was the original contraceptive pill before pharmaceuticals stared making synthetic versions of it. Today, massive amounts of Wild Yam species are being collected in the wild or cultivated in Mexico to supply diosgenin (a phytosteroid sapogenin). This ingredient is the basic substance from which synthetic birth control pills and several other steroid drugs are made. It is estimated that more than 200 Million Rx's a year are sold with derivatives of this herb in them.
