Chelidonium (Greater Calandine )

Homeopathic remedy for

Liver and Gallbladder Disease

Jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes) is prominent with Chelidonium. There is swelling of the liver and pain, but the pain is characteristically referred to the back, under the caudal angle of the scapula (shoulder), particularly on the right side and goes through the chest. Pain in the stomach is temporarily relieved by eating, especially warm food and drink.

The tongue is swollen, showing the imprint of the teeth around the edges, and the nose holes may flap independent of respiration. Stools are yellow, pasty, clay-colored and may resemble sheep droppings. There is a lack of thirst and a desire for cool air, and the patient is drowsy, weak and fatigued.

Chelidonium's almost specific effect on the liver has resulted in its being used as an organ-specific remedy. In low potency, Chelidonium is likely to have a beneficial effect on almost any liver disease.
