hi all. i post on the crohn's disease board, but i was curious to your opinions/thoughts on the efficacy of **** *** and boswellia (frankincense) as a viable treatment to arthritis. a few friends of mine swear by it.

thanks for any replies!

the asterisk field is supposed to say **** ***. i dont know why the moderator/site has done that the word **** ***. i've seen **** *** posted on the crohn's disease board and **** *** isnt marked out with asterisks. kinda weird, dont you think, that they would do this to the word **** ***? perhaps they think some one is trying to sell the mono vie product, which is not the case. i am sure some of you here have tried **** ***, so i was curious as to your thoughts on **** *** seeing how a lot of the same drugs are used both arthritis and crohns disease.

so assuming on this post, the asterisks appear again and you dont know what that word is, let's play charades: 2 words. first word has 4 letters. second word has 3. here is a hint: it is a drink blended of like 19 different fruits, the major selling point being the acai berry from the amazon. if you can guess it, then you have solved the puzzle and are able to post a reply.

I tried it once when someone gave me a free bottle to try. Aside from the fact it tastes AWFUL and I had to mix it with juice to get it down....it made me very ill. I did not notice any 'immediate' benefit to my joints that the girl claimed some have.
