Can you recommend any herbal/alternative remedies?

Hello everyone,

I am dealing with severe arthritis in my knees and cannot take traditional meds due to intestinal bleeding.

Are there any alternative/herbal remedies that may alleviate some of the pain?

Any advice would be appreciated!

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Aloe vera, eucalyptus,turmeric,green tea and boswellia are some of the products of alternative medicine that are helpful in arthritis.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
