Corydalis

Has anyone tried Corydalis for pain relief? A friend has suggested it, but I am not familiar with it.

If you’ve tried it . . . what was your experience? Did it help?

It’s a plant used in Chinese medicine. Mostly the tubers and roots. no different than our native american cures. I don’t know where you buy it, probably a health food store. I have never tried it, have heard some good things about it and some terrible outcomes. Sure wish there was something easy that could help all of us !!

There are over 400 species or varieties under that botanical family. You’re probably referring to Corydalis filistipes. I really don’t know anything about it. I almost feel like it’s similar to willow bark. Besides I thought it was on an endangered list.
