I don't care for dandelion tea either. I drink Tension Tamer by Celestial Seasonings. It contains peppermint, cinnamon, ginger, chamomile, lemongrass, licorice, catnip, and tilia flowers--very anti-inflammatory. The tea tastes good, and it helps reduce sugar cravings.
I haven't really given boswellia much of a chance. I tried it once, and it didn't really seem to do much. I've noticed better results with turmeric. If I get another flare, I'll give it another try.

Figuring out how to reduce a flare or get into remission is a trial and error experience. Don't expect your GI to have all the answers. He was trained in making diagnoses, prescribing medications, and surgically removing the colon. He was not trained in alternative treatments. That's why they are called alternative treatments.
