Entheogens Medicinal Plants Prickly Poppy Argemon Mexicana
When the Spanish arrived in Sonora they added this plant to their pharmacopeia and called it cardosanto, which should not be mistranslated to blessed thistle (Cnicus benedictus). Use in Hispanic cultures includes as a sedative and analgesic tea, including for use to help alleviate migraine headaches. The seeds are taken as a laxative. The seed-pods secrete a pale-yellow latex substance when cut open. This argemone resin contains berberine and protopine, and is used medicinally as a sedative. Argemone mexicana is also used by traditional healers in Mali to treat malaria.
Warning: Large doses of this plant may be toxic and potentially deadly!
What a wide range of medicinal uses the Prickly poppy plant has had to offer people in the past. If something from the ground was used back then to deal with malaria, imagine what all of the wild plants out there have the potential to do for us. These wise people from the past had a high level of respect and gratitude for nature.
Today science has confirmed chemicals in this sacred medicine to have sedative effects. This science is classified as photo-chemistry or pharmacology. The prized chemicals are known as berberine and protopine. Large enough doses of these compounds is dangerous. As with any other medicine, dosage always counts. While a lot of modern medicine works by giving the individual a small enough amount of the disease or a poison, some herbal medicine works in the same manner.
If this gift was used many years ago for kidney pain by people with lesser technology that that of the modern world, why are is it not a mainstream option in large retail stores? From all of my research there are enough plants with active pain relieving constituents to make a huge list of a-z pain relievers, hundreds per letter. Pain medications should be the last resort I believe, but they are still some-what necessary. The first thing a person should do I believe is to stop the source of the pain to begin with. Never the less, sometimes we all need some relief.
