The healing power of : Devil's claw.

Devil's claw has my attention.  It's available as a root, an ointment/gel, creme and pills.

It has been used to treat pain, liver and kidney problems, fever, and malaria. It has also been used in topical ointments to heal sores, boils, and other skin problems. Devil' s claw was introduced to Europe in the early 1900s, where the dried roots have been used to restore appetite, relieve heartburn, and reduce pain and inflammation. Today, devil's claw is used to fight inflammation or relieve pain in arthritis, headache, and low back pain. Animal and test tube studies suggest that devil' s claw can help fight inflammation, and it is used widely in Germany and France.
