NEW PAIN RELIEVER ALTERNATIVE TO OPIOIDS OR ANTI-INFLAMMATORY DRUGS AVAILABLE IN PACIFIC HERBS’ CORYDALIS NATURAL PAIN RELIEF
Bend, OR — Pacific Herbs, an Oregon wellness company, intends to stem the opioid addiction crisis and our reliance upon unhealthy over-the-counter pain relievers like Acetaminophen and Ibuprofen with its Chinese-herb product Corydalis Natural Pain Relief, which just received a coveted AMA code. Licensed Acupuncturist and Herbalist Cathy Margolin developed a comprehensive line of health products from Chinese herbs that treat everything from anxiety and sleep challenges to women’s issues. Her formulation based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and specifically designed for pain is Corydalis Natural Pain Relief, which is a mixture of corydalis root and other TCM herbs, including turmeric. The synergistic combination of these herbs is especially beneficial when pain is mixed with inflammation, such as back pain or chronic or acute orthopedic pain, as it blocks pain receptors in the brain.
Margolin says, “I’m concerned about our opioid crisis that just prompted the United States Senate to introduce SB 1079, Protecting Americans From Dangerous Opioids Act. SB 1079 lists findings that opioids killed over 33,000 people in the United States in 2015. We need safer alternatives for managing pain.”
Additionally, there is growing evidence that non-prescription medications like Advil and Tylenol, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), have serious side effects. Long-term use of acetaminophen can cause liver damage and this drug is one of few over-the-counter products with a black box warning.
Corydalis Natural Pain Relief can be helpful for many types of pain and can be safely consumed long-term without creating other harmful side effects. Studies from the University of California, Irvine have confirmed that this plant root can be effective in managing low to moderate chronic pain, as it has been used for thousands of years in Chinese medicine. Turmeric, one of the herbs in Corydalis Natural Pain Relief, is cited as a welcome alternative to traditional drugs for its anti-inflammatory properties. The formulation of this product is granular which allows quick absorption in the body.
In addition to its healing properties, Pacific Herbs’ Corydalis Natural Pain Relief is recently distinguished by its American Medical Association (AMA)-approved billing code, rendering it an insurable item for many individuals, which is extremely rare for a nutraceutical product.

Corydalis, a plant used in Chinese medicine has been found to effectively treat low level chronic pain say researchers at University of California, Irvine. Roots such as corydalis have been used for over one thousand years in Asia. “Our study reports the discovery of a new natural product that can relieve pain,” says Olivier Civelli, PhD, Department of Pharmacology at the University of California, Irvine, “This analgesic acts in animal assays against the three types of pain that afflict humans, including acute, inflammatory, and neuropathic or chronic pain.”
Corydalis is commonly used for headaches, menstrual pain, stomach pain, and back pain. This Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) plant is one of the 13 herbs in PMS Relief Herb Pack made by Pacific Herbs. Interestingly, Corydalis is non-addicting and can be used long-term safely and does not appear to lose its effectiveness the way that conventional opiate drugs do. The researchers found it a very effective option for those who suffer from low-level chronic pain.
Asian cultures have hundreds of studies on this Chinese herb root proving both the safety and efficacy of using corydalis.
On April 16, 2017 Oregon’s House of Representatives unanimously agreed on a bill that would limit doctors from prescribing opioid drugs for more than seven (7) days unless circumstances determined, by a medical professional, that more were necessary.
NO – Not – Didn’t happen!
This almost happened. What really happened is the Oregon state legislature instead passed a watered down version of this bill, without the 7 day rule even though the state attorney general’s office had strongly backed the measure because “the risk of overdose and addiction is serious.”
What the House of Representatives in Salem, Oregon passed, is a bill that suggests, clinicians should avoid prescribing opioids and benzodiazepines (a class of psychoactive drugs) known to be addicting after very short time periods. Really! Yup, they actually took time to pass a bill that now goes to the Senate that “SUGGEST” this.
Even though The Oregon Health Authority says an average of three Oregonians die every week from prescription opioid overdose, the legislature removed any teeth from a bill that might have made a dent in the problem. What good does a bill do that simply “SUGGEST” doctors should cut back on their prescriptions????
I for one am baffled.
Here’s wishing the state legislature would “SUGGEST” a safe botanical like Corydalis for pain relief. The state could become growers of this wonderful, might I even say, “miraculous” plant. Although nobody would get addicted it would provide safe and effective pain relief. The State could go beyond growing it, they could tax it and regulate it too. This would bring much needed revenue and simultaneously reduce the use of prescription drugs all while having a pain reliever that really works.
The botanical world has plenty of pain relieving chemicals. (uuhhmmm opioids originated from natural chemicals first found in the Poppy plant, now created synthetically.)
Here’s to hoping one day we take plant chemicals seriously and our government representatives “SUGGEST” we use them.
Corydalis is a great natural pain reliever! Pacific Herbs sell the highest quality Chinese herbs available and Corydalis is just one of the many Chinese herbs we stock. Corydalis is well known and used throughout Asia for headaches, backaches and menstrual cramps. Commonly used in combinations (or formulas) of herbs, Corydalis is found in both our PMS Relief Herb Pack and Cordalis Natural Pain Relief Herb Pack.
Please note: Corydalis Natural Pain Relief Herb Pack should not be used by pregnant or breastfeeding women or by anyone with an irregular heart rhythm. Although corydalis comes from a natural root it may have interactions with medications such as hypnotics, sedatives, cancer medications and anti-arrhythmic drugs.
Not every Chinese herb is right for everyone. Pacific Herbs encourages you to check with a licensed Acupuncturist trained in Chinese herbal medicine and discuss how acupuncture and a comprehensive herbal formula can improve your health and vitality.
