Chelidonium Majus

The Many Benefits of Chelidonium Majus


English Name: Greater Celandine 


Latin Name: Chelidonium Majus 


Type: Homeopathic


What is Chelidonium Majus Made From?

Chelidonium Majus is derived from the above-ground parts, stem and rhizome of the greater celandine plant. After harvest, the plant parts are soaked and diluted into a solution that has virtually no molecules of the plant itself, creating an effective homeopathic remedy.


What is Chelidonium Majus?

Chelidonium Majus is a homeopathic remedy used for disorders of the gastrointestinal tract, gallbladder, liver, spleen, respiratory tract and cardiovascular system.


Homeopathic medicines may be produced from healing substances, neutral substances, or highly toxic substances. Yet through the unique homeopathic process, they all become safe, deep acting medicines. In fact, remedies made from poisonous or toxic material have effects opposite from the original substance. Homeopathic remedies are based on the belief that “like cures like,” in tiny dilution.


Medicinal Uses of Chelidonium Majus  

Key homeopathic uses for Chelidonium Majus include digestive disorders such as stomach upset, IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), constipation, gastroenteritis, and gallbladder and liver disorders. Research suggests it may increase bile flow. Chelidonium Majus is also used for intestinal polyps, loss of appetite, detoxification, chest pain, high blood pressure, asthma, menstrual cramps, breast lumps and arthritis.


From a homeopathic remedy profile perspective, Chelidonium Majus is well suited for those with aggressive, domineering personalities who are prone to holding their emotions in. People with a practical nature respond especially well. Some of these individuals may have an underlying liver disorder at the root of some of their symptoms.
