Major re-write to include information from PDR for Herbel Remedies[edit]

I've re-written a lot of this article to make scientifically tested uses vs. herbalism uses clear. I've tried to resolve the toxicity debate too. I'm too lazy to cite all the individual articles so I've just cited the literature review in the PDR instead. Also, I forgot to sign my edits from IP, so for reference I'm Fluidhomefront 15:26, 3 October 2007 (UTC). Enjoy.

Old request to extend article[edit]

Does anybody object if I expand the article a bit on the capabilities of this lttle plant as a remedy? It would not be sciethis is the worst thing tin the history o fhte world because of what i am doing now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!ntific and be based on my own experience with tea I made from greater celandine plants I gathered myself. I am a cancer patient with the usual digestive problems that come from strong pain relievers.

This stuff fixed my problems in half a day, verifiably so. And you guys classify it as poisonous. Then again, there are hundreds of plants out there classified as dangerous - whereas they have been used for centuries as remedies... I'll wait a week or so, if no one bitches I'll edit the article bye, Bert

It's always nice to include a source or two for that sort of thing. Googling "greater celandine remedy" brought quite a few hits. SB Johnny 21:32, 8 June 2006 (UTC)

It is toxic but only dangerous when used incorrectly. Because this is a very powerful plant, be careful. For example the tea is recommended to use no more than three weeks and only half a liter made from 5 grams once a day. I stopped already after a few days because of the very heavy (but also good) impact it had on my body. Indeed the internet offers many applications for this beautiful plant.

Is it really appropriate to say Chelidonium majus is a poppy? Just askin'... Aelwyn 15:34, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

folk remedy for warts.[edit]

I read that due to the content of sanguinarine, that Chelidonium majus is used topically to cure warts as a folk remedy, if the juice to topically applied to a wart two to three times a week, it is usually cured within a week due to the cytotoxic properties of sanguinarine.

Merger from Ukrain[edit]

This section has been copied from Talk:Ukrain, where the consensus was merge. --Tryptofish (talk) 17:48, 16 June 2011 (UTC)

Came here initially to speedy delete and recommend WP:SALTing, but there are some hits for the term on both PubMed and Google Scholar, so I think a better solution would be to properly tag it and recommend cleaning up and wikifying. Still, the product's official website looks like total spam. WTF? (talk) 21:18, 1 June 2011 (UTC)

Would it, perhaps, be better to merge it into Chelidonium? But in any case, yes, let's get better sources, by all means. --Tryptofish (talk) 21:21, 1 June 2011 (UTC)
Would support merge... Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 21:29, 1 June 2011 (UTC)
Mistyped Ukraine and ended up here. Merge/redirect sounds good. AIRcorn (talk) 14:08, 12 June 2011 (UTC)

I'm going to go ahead and do it. --Tryptofish (talk) 17:35, 16 June 2011 (UTC)

I've moved the section on etymology from Lesser celandine to here. Plantsurfer and I are discussing it at Talk:Lesser celandine. — Eru·tuon 01:22, 11 April 2015 (UTC)

Species AND Genus !?[edit]

The article name and some of the text is about a genus, Chelidonium. The start and most of the text is about a species, C majus. There is need for a split.--Ettrig (talk) 11:16, 31 August 2016 (UTC)

Was going to disagree, but The Plant List mentions Chelidonium asiaticum (Hara) Krahulc. as another species in the genus.DavidAnstiss (talk) 00:07, 4 November 2017 (UTC)
