Major re-write to include information from PDR for Herbel Remedies
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 22.214.171.124, so for reference I'm Fluidhomefront 15:26, 3 October 2007 (UTC). Enjoy.
Old request to extend article
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.
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. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 23:56, 16 November 2008 (UTC)
