It is a beautiful plant with 357 species. Corydalis cava and some other tuberous species contain the alkaloid bulbocapnine, (don’t ask me how to say that!!) which is used in medicine.

Corydalis has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine since the eighth century. So why is it taken so long to hear about it??? So let’s move onto what you want to know, does this get rid of chronic pain?


I first heard of this on Dr Oz of course.. And this is what he says. Corydalis is non addictive and can replace drugs like oxycontin. Corydalis is an herb that may help treat your chronic nerve pain. In addition to nerve pain use to help treat anxiety.

I wanted to learn more and this is what I have found, it acts on the central nervous system to reduce nerve pain, and reports from Chinese researchers have noted that the herb was effective in reducing nerve pain in seventy-eight percent of the patients tested. As a painkiller, Corydalis is believed to be especially helpful in cases of dysmenorrhea (painful menstruation) and abdominal pain after childbirth.

According to Dr Oz the best way to take it is in the powder form. Mix 3 1/2 grams in hot water and drink it like tea. However as with all supplements before taking corydalis to help to stop your chronic nerve pain, talk with your doctor about possible side effects and proper dosage.

My husband and very good friend both have chronic nerve pain due to compressed disks in the spine. I have not had them try this, but I do have some being shipped to our home for my husband to try. I will report his experience with Corydalis. If you happen to have tried this please leave a comment to your results. I’d love to hear from you.
