I have been thinking about the inflammatory disease that we have.......... psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis and wondering why slippery elm bark, milk thistle and curcumin have been clearing up some of the ones that are trying it..........so I did some searching...it seems the three mentioned are anti inflammatories (and there are more I'm sure)
Here is a segment from a site that discusses the diseases and explains about it somewhat...including the biologics.
"For years, a group of chronic, inflammatory diseases has frustrated physicians and patients seeking effective treatment," says Cecil B. Wilson, M.D., an internist in Winter Park, Fla. and an American Medical Association (AMA) trustee. "The growing body of knowledge about the immune system's role in diseases such as psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, myasthenia gravis, scleroderma and multiple sclerosis (MS) means that there is hope for long-term treatments and perhaps even cures."
In light of such recent discoveries, the AMA held an inflammatory diseases media briefing in New York City recently, where experts gathered to discuss the evolving body of thought surrounding the treatment of these chronic autoimmune diseases which, as of now, have no cure.""
