A number of herbal supplements have demonstrated anti- inflammatory effects in clinical studies.
Descriptions of which ones can be found in the section on herbs and nutritional supplements in the Second Opinion Arthritis Treatment Kit.
Examples of some that have withstood close scrutiny and have significant beneficial effects on inflammation include boswellia, cumin, flaxseed, frankincense, black currant oil, omega-3 oils, and thunder god vine.
Nutritional supplements that contain these herbal ingredients should have them in a balanced formula. Imbalance not only leads to less efficacy but also leads to potential side-effects.
A nutritional supplement like Complete Wellness has the right balance of ingredients.
The other question is whether a combination of anti inflammatory medicines and herbs works better than either one alone. This has not been studied as carefully.
Another consideration is which disease is involved. Patients with rheumatoid arthritis require much stronger anti inflammatory effect than patients with osteoarthritis.
Finally, patients taking these herbs should let their physician know because there may be interaction with prescription medications, particularly blood thinners. In addition, some herbs have their own toxicities. Just because something is "herbal" or "natural" does not make it safe.
