As I impatiently wait for the Ginger, Turmeric and Vitamin D to cool my aching knees (hips and thighs), I wonder about other concentrated natural treatments for joint and muscle inflammation, specifically Boswellia (Indian Frankincense). 14 of 20 patients in this 2001 NIH study went into remission after receiving "gum resin of Boswellia serrata (900 mg daily divided in three doses for 6 weeks)." There are many other compelling articles and testimonials; I am going to check with my Mind-body therapist to see if she recommends it.
