Chinese Herbal Medicine:   3/20/2014

We have received a lot of calls recently about Corydalis.  We DO NOT sell herbs to consumers without a prescription from a certified Chinese Herbal Practitioner.  If  someone doesn’t  apply Chinese Herbal Medicine’s principles when using plants or other products from mother nature, I consider they are NOT USING CHINESE MEDICINE, they are using  PLANT MEDICINE. For example, Corydalis has the function of pain reduction, but we don’t use it alone as a single plant! Just because plants come from mother nature does not mean they do not have poison.

Corydalis (Corydalis, Xuan Hu Suo) side effects – Corydalis contains a variety of alkaloids, mainly isoquinoline derivatives. Side effects include excessive paralysis after spinal nerve poisoning and limb muscles, inhibiting central nervous system, causing vascular paralysis, respiratory depression and cardiac dysfunction.

Adverse reactions

(1) Side effects: oral nausea, dizziness, fatigue and other adverse reactions. Taking  in powder form greater than 10g,  may cause  a loss of appetite, bloating, lethargy; transaminase (S-GPT) elevated heart rate, ECG T-wave widened rise. Oral or topical injections can cause allergic reactions.

(2) toxic reactions: dizziness, pallor, weak heartbeat, weak pulse, drowsiness, weakness, difficulty breathing, convulsions, drop in blood pressure; severe cases can cause shock, convulsions, respiratory center depression, Parkinson syndrome.

<<黄帝内经>>:素问– 四气调神大论篇第二 (Yellow emperor’s internal medicine: su wen # 2)

是故圣人不治已病治未病, 不治已乱治未乱,此之谓也。夫病已成而后药之,乱已成而后治之,譬犹渴而穿井,斗而铸锥,不亦晚乎!

So the saints have not only to treat disease, but treatment of the disease before they occur. Do not wait until the chaos has happened before going to management, but management before it happens. If the disease has occurred, then go to treatment, just like you dig a well when you feel thirsty,  or you make weapons just before the war takes place. Is it not too late yet?
