If you're one of the one in five Australians suffering from chronic pain, there's probably not much on the market you haven't tried.
But a natural Chinese remedy used for thousands of years could potentially shake up the pain relief industry and revolutionise the way we treat severe pain.
Researchers at the University of California, Irvine, have identified the active compound in an ancient Chinese pain relieving remedy (Yan Hu Suo).
The root of the Corydalis plant contain dehydrocorybulbine or DHCB, which appears to mimic the effects of morphine, without the addiction and tolerance side effects.
Research is still to be conducted in humans, but it could be a potential breakthrough in pain management.
The new findings are published in the journal Current Biology.
