New herb potential for treating rheumatoid arthritis


A Chinese herb by the name of Thunder God vine (tripterygium wilfordi) has been shown to provide better relief for rheumatoid arthritis compared to methotrexate. Annals of Rheumatic Disease published a 24-week open-label trial of 207 patientsconcluding that Thunder God vine is capable of modulating anti-inflammatory and immune effects. Authors state that the data favored the combination of both the vine and methotrexate claiming improved results. What natural products do you currently include in your rheumatoid arthritis treatment protocol?
