Question
Are there any good plants for treating rheumatoid arthritis? I was looking into this plant called Ashwagandha, some internet source says it is good for this condition but i don't know if it's true or not. I take medication my doctor has given me but it doesn't cure the disease. Are there any herbs that can help?

Answer
Hi Jalil,
There is no cure for arthritis. Medications that are available to us control symptoms and others that prevent progressive deterioration. There is no plant based supplement that is as powerful as the conventional medications.
Thank you for using Allexpperts.
Sincerely,
