That Boswellia Works for Me
« on: March 29, 2010, 09:58:00 PM »
I've been taking the herb Boswellia for a little over a month.  I'm taking it as an anti-inflammatory to reduce the pain in my spine.  Surprisingly, it seemed to work for several days, and I was able to talk with friends at church without feeling in excruciating pain.  However, today I had considerable pain.  I'm hoping that, in the long run, the Boswellia does good for me.  It has excellent ratings for easing arthritic pains.  Boswellia, for those interested, is from the tree sap of the frankincense tree. 

So, if you could pray for me, I would greatly appreciate it.

Lord, have mercy!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria
