Wood Betony was used in medieval England to cure, 'monstrous nocturnal visions, devils, despair and lunacy’. Betonic is the Celtic name of the plant and comes from ben (the head) and ton (good) in reference to the herb's abilities as a remedy for head complaints.
Wood Betony is an excellent remedy for head problems as with pain in the head, headaches and face twitching.
Wood Betony is used in combination with other herbs for treating rheumatism and other diseases which stem from impurities of the blood. It will open obstructions of the liver and spleen, mildly stimulate the heart and expel worms from the system. It is also a tonic for general digestive disorders.
The glycosides of Wood Betony have recognizable hypotensive activity. This explains most of the understandable properties, since a substance that is hypotensive relaxes nervous tension as well as opens up constrictive blood vessels that are the basis for the headaches.
