What is Chelidonium?

Chelidonium majus, the greater celandine , is a plant in the poppy family and is native to all of Europe. Like other poppies, it contains a group of alkaloids that have some narcotic effects. If you consume larger amounts, you will experience pain, vomiting and bloody diarrhea.

In severe cases of poisoning, circulatory failure sometimes leads to death. Celandine is also suspected of causing liver damage and liver failure.

In folk medicine, the fresh juice of celandine is applied to warts, which are supposed to disappear. In herbal medicine, Chelidonium is a widely used remedy because of its stimulating effect on the flow of bile. It is said to contribute to detoxification and liver cleansing.

In order to produce the homeopathic remedy, an essence is made from the juice of the flowering plant including the root and this is then potentised.

When is Chelidonium used?

In homeopathy, Chelidonium is most commonly used for liver and gallbladder disorders such as hepatitis, jaundice, gallstones and gallbladder infections. It is also used for other diseases when the liver is involved in some way or when the symptoms alternate with liver problems.

Typically, the remedy is used for complaints that occur primarily on the right side of the body. The left side of the body is either unaffected or much less affected than the right side.

Chelidonium majus is also said to help against warts.
