Thunder God Vine
Used in Chinese medicine, Thunder God Vine is another remedy with origins in Asia. Taken orally as a supplement for autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, the plant can be used to reduce pain and inflammation.
The effectiveness of Thunder God Vine has been met with mixed results. In fact, the best result came when it was being used in conjunction with methotrexate. It is important to monitor any side effects of this plant and to only use the root since the other parts are toxic.
