A member of the Papaver family, this herb is highly esteemed in traditional Chinese medicine for its ability to relieve pain and promote the movement of both qi and blood. Corydalis’ potent analgesic effects seem to be able to alleviate a broad spectrum of pain-inducing conditions including pains of the chest, limbs and abdomen due to trauma or blood stasis. It is also indicated for treating pain associated with PMS or epigastric problems.
Corydalis is very safe, and at normal dosages no side effects are to be expected. High doses can produce some sedation, dizziness and bloating. Women who are pregnant should not use corydalis.
