Herbs Traditionaly used in Chinese Medicine for seizures, uncontrolled body movement, Parkinsons, moving pain (As in Fibromyalgia)  and pain in general.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, "Liver Wind" refers, in part, to uncontrolled movement in the form of seizures, spasms, shaking or jerks. Also many times pain that moves from one part of the body to another (Such as in Fibromyalgia)   For centuries Corydalis (Yan Hu Suo) has been used to reduce pain and keep grand mal and other types of seizures away.  

The drug companies have observed this and (In their usual jealous response) tried to isolate something from it for synthesis. (And, of course, a money grabbing patent drug - whether it is safe or not) Here is what they found:

The influence of dl-tetrahydropalmatine (THP, an active component isolated from  corydalis yanhusao root) was tested on the development of electrically kindled amygdala.
The seizure activity was quantified by a ultrasonic system for vertical motion measurements. Intraperitoneal injection of THP (20 or 30 mg kg-1) 30 min before applying the daily kindling stimulus prevented the development of the kindling process.

The behavioral seizure score and the motion responses which normally develop during electrical kindling were reduced below their initial values.

The results suggest that THP is a very effective antiepileptogenic and anticonvulsant agent when applied to electrically kindled rats.


The problem (As usual) was that isolated dl-tetrahydropalmatine becomes toxic and can cause hepatitis and other liver disorders. The thought to just concentrate the safe whole root extract (With all the other secrets of "Mother Nature" locked in) would, of course, never occur to them. Well it has occured to us!

These 100 gram 5:1 Corydalis yanhusao extract crystals (1 gram crystals = 5 grams raw herb) are made to easy dissolve in any liquid. They are made with a natural water and alcohol process using fresh organic herbs and very low heat.

Remember, seizures and movements are not the only thing that Corydalis works for. It has long been known as the "TCM Way To Manage Pain".  Especially when other herbs are added to direct Corydalis yanhusao to the body area where it is most needed.

Below are a few suggested Traditional Chinese Medicine "protocols" of simple herb combinations you can use with Corydalis Extract for various forms of "Liver Wind" and pain. (Just keep scrolling down)

Please note:  these 5:1 extract powders are mostly for licensed TCM practitioners to prescribe to their patients. The dose and other instructions are to be written out for the patient on a one by one basis. This is why there is NO suggested dose on the jars.
(We would get into some legal “gray area” if it were on the label) Please just note the suggested doses on this website or consult a health practitoner. Thanks, Chris.

For Parkinson’s:

We strongly suggest Corydalis 5:1 Extract (1 ½ grams twice daily) plus
Tien Ma Gou Teng Wan (pills as directed)  Click here to buy Tien Ma Gu Tang Wan

 This should be taken along with  
He Shou Wu (Powder or liquid extract) In standard dose. 
The He Show Wu is an important part of this herbal protocol for Parkinsons - click here to buy

This entire combination of herbs: Corydalis, all the herbs in Tien Ma Gou Teng Wan , (listed below) along with He Shou Wu has been a successful "Raw Medicine" formula in TCM against Parkinsons. (Boiled daily as "Water Medicine") However this winds up costing much more. (Many of the raw herbs in Tien Ma Gou Teng Wan are quite expensive to obtain) It is also difficult for patients to prepare and tastes quite bad. These extreamly effective pills by Herbal Times are pure organic herbs and are of the highest quality there is!
