Boswellia
Boswellia
Ayurvedic Anti-Inflammatory

Maren Barney

Ayurveda is a holistic system of health care that's been practiced in India and Sri Lanka for centuries. Practitioners view patients as a whole person, taking into account both their physical and spiritual well-being, and seek to balance the three bio-energies, or doshas. Boswellia (Boswellia serrata), an outstanding anti-inflammatory herb from ayurvedic medicine, can be an effective adjunct in reducing pain and inflammation among those who suffer from osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, bursitis, gout and carpal tunnel syndrome. It can also offer relief for those with Crohn's disease and colitis. With so much recent research revealing the dangers of inflammation, boswellia is the new anti-inflammatory from an ancient tradition.
