Chelidonium
Symptomology

Background
Because this plant flowers as the swallows are migrating, Dioscorides, the famous Greek physician of the 1st century CE, named it after the Greek khelidon, or "swallow." In traditional medicine its juice was used for skin, liver, and gallbladder disorders.

Patient Profile
Those who tend to benefit greatly from Chelidonium as a homeopathic remedy tend to be

averse to mental or physical effort. There is an indolent disposition with great laziness, lethargy, debility, lassitude and weariness. Such patients are also drowsy during the day, sleep poorly, perspire excessively and are continuously cold. Their natural inclination is more practical than intellectual. There is a feeling of heaviness with symptoms tending to be right sided.

Conversely because the main organ of dysfunction is the liver/ gallbladder they may on occasions present an aggressive domineering personality (as a result of acid imbalance).

 

 

The Doctrine of Signatures

The yellow juice the plant exudes would infer that it is good for liver disorders, such as jaundice. Indeed it is used for liver and bile disorders, for example gallstones, indigestion, jaundice, and hepatitis. Characteristically there is often a bruised, aching pain on the lower part of the right shoulder blade associated with an upset stomach, nausea, vomiting, and possibly distension of the upper abdomen which is relieved by passing stools. Chelidonium patients generally feel "liverish" or nauseous, and depressed with a dull headache and have a sallow, yellowish complexion.

 

 

Treatments
1. Hepatitis
An enlarged liver, with pain extending to the back and right shoulder blade with jaundice and yellow skin. The abdomen feels distended and tight, as if bound. Chelidonium may be indicated in many affections of the liver from a simple congestion to a positive inflammation. It produces pains in the right hypochondrium all the way from a simple soreness to the most aggravating sharp stitching pain, A keynote is that there is a marked pain under the angle of the right shoulder-blade. In addition there are the usual hepatic symptoms, swelling of the liver, chills, fever, jaundice, yellow-coated tongue, bitter taste in the mouth, tongue taking the imprint of the teeth. The stools are characteristically profuse bright yellow and diarrhoeic, or they may be clayey. Desires include a craving for acids, for sour things such as pickles, vinegar and also cheese.

 

 2. Gallstones
A sharp, constant pain on the upper right hypochondria behind the ribs, possibly due to a gallstone trapped in a bile duct. The pain may resemble that of hepatitis. It is often exacerbated by fatty foods, and may extend to the back and right shoulder blade. There may be nausea and vomiting, and inflammation of the bile duct that may lead to jaundice or inflammation of the gallbladder.

Chel has cured many patients suffering from gall-stone colic but it needs to be symptomatically indicated. When a gall-stone engages in the gallbladder duct it creates an irritation by scratching along the mucous membrane. If the irritation is such that the pain is of a shooting, stabbing, tearing, lancinating nature, extending through to the back, and up to the right shoulder Chel will cure. The gallbladder duct opens and the stone passes through.

If however a patient has great heat, red face and hot head, is extremely sensitive, screams in pain, cannot have the body touched then Bell is the remedy of choice to relieve this type of gall stone colic symptomology.

 

3. Headaches
A sensation of heaviness on the right side of the head. There may also be facial numbness and neuralgia (especially above the eye), and a yellow-coated tongue that retains teeth marks. These symptoms may be linked to an existing liver disorder.

 

4. Eyes
Eyes with whites that are dirty yellow in colour. Sore sensation on looking up. Tears fairly gush out. It can cleans the eye and thereby sharpen the sight. Orbital neuralgia of right eye, with profuse lachrymation; pupils contracted, relieved by pressure.

 

5. Shoulder pain
Shoulder pain with icy coldness in the fingertips and muscles that feel sore to the touch. There may be associated nausea and perspiration.

 

6. Respiratory Pain
A breathlessness and pain on coughing or on breathing deeply that chiefly affects the right lung with associated liver problems is indicative of Chel. The inspirations are quick and short with pain on deep inspiration

The symptoms should not be confused with Bry. in which the patient lies on the painful side or on the back. Chel is < touch, motion and pressure.  The Chel cough is persistent with much pain through right side of chest and into shoulder of a violen, spasmodic, dry, nature coming in paroxysms with dyspnoa. 

 

7. Skin
In situations where the skin colour is jaundice/ yellow it is good for old spreading, filthy, corroding, wrinkled ulcers healing them more speedily as well as for tetters (any skin eruption with itching), warts and ring worm.

 

8. Extremities
Icy cold

 

Modalities
Aggravation
Right side, motion, touch, change of weather, very early in morning.
Amelioration
After dinner

Chelidonium &
Hepatic Cancer

Background
Crude extracts of Chelidonium majus, and also purified compounds derived from crude extracts of this plant, have been reported to exhibit anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor and anti-microbial properties both in vitro and in vivo. Chelidonium is a homeopathic drug routinely used against various liver disorders including cancer in humans. Two potencies of Chelidonium (Ch-30, Ch-200) have been tested for their possible anti-tumor and enzyme modulating activities in liver and anti-clastogenic effects during p-DAB-induced hepatocarcinogenesis in mice compared to suitable controls.

Methods
Several cytogenetic and enzymatic protocols were used at three fixation intervals; at 60 days, 90 days and 120 days of treatment. Different sets of healthy mice were fed: i) hepatocarcinogen, p-DAB plus phenobarbital (PB), ii) only PB, iii) neither p-DAB nor PB (normal control). One set of mice fed with p-DAB plus PB was also fed Ch-30 (iv) and another set Ch-200 (v). All standard currently used methods were adopted for cytogenetical preparations and for the enzyme assays.

Results
All group (i) mice developed tumors in liver at all fixation intervals, while none of group (ii) and (iii) mice developed any tumors. About 40% mice in group (iv) and group (v) did not show tumor nodules in their liver. Feeding of Chelidonium to group (iv) and (v) mice reduced genotoxic effects to a significant extent (p < 0.05 to p < 0.001).Conclusion
The homeopathic drug Chelidonium exhibited anti-tumor and anti-genotoxic activities and also favorably modulated activities of some marker enzymes. Microdoses of Chelidonium may be effectively used in combating liver cancer.
