Properties, use and treatment of celandine
The celandine plant belongs to the poppy family and genus dicotyledonous. It is a tall perennial grassy shrub with a hollow stem and lyre-like dark green leaves. Celandine blooms with yellow flowers, and then in their place small pods ripen, which crack in two and throw away the seeds. The plant bears fruit 2-3 times over the summer, therefore it effectively propagates and is found almost everywhere.
Science knows two types of celandine:
Chelidonium asiaticum - Asian (30-50 cm tall),
Chelidonium majus - large (50-120 cm tall).
Both types of plants are poisonous, but they have a number of useful properties, therefore they have been actively used both in Eastern and in European folk medicine for a long time. The Russian-language name of this herb speaks for itself - it “cleans the body” of warts, acne and non-healing wounds. And the Latin name has a beautiful history of origin: in the times of Avicenna, it was believed that swallows cure the festering and blind eyes of their chicks with bitter juice of celandine. Hence the term Chelidonium (literally "swallow"). In ancient Russia, the celandine had numerous characteristic nicknames: the yellow milk maker, the underliner, the warthog, chistuha, and dog soap.
The drug can be purchased in finished form, but since the celandine is growing almost everywhere, you should not spend money. Go for grass in early summer, when the plant first bloomed, and the leaves are still fresh and fleshy. Wash them thoroughly, finely chop them and fill the one-liter jar to the top, then pour 70% medical alcohol and leave in a dark dry place for 2 weeks. In addition, if you can insist on celandine for 5-6 months, then you will get an even more concentrated and highly effective medicine.
It is better to treat serious diseases, especially oncological, with the help of alcohol tinctures, since the concentration of alkaloids is much lower in ordinary broths and water infusions. In addition, alcohol tincture can be stored for a long time and economical to spend. After waiting for six months, you will receive high-quality and effective medicine with little or no investment.
Starting to be treated with tincture of celandine is needed only when the expected benefit is greater than the possible risk. Remember that in fact it is a potent vegetable poison, which you need to gradually get used to. The first 3-4 weeks tincture take 5-10 drops per day, and then every week the dosage is increased by 10 drops, and so on to 50. The duration of the course of treatment depends on the type of the disease: for example, in cancer and tuberculosis, the celandine tincture is taken for at least six months.

This tincture is used to normalize the functioning of the liver.
