Boswellia, the ancient Indian frankincense, cured my tendonitis. It is the most effective anti-inflammatory and pain reliever I have found. I often take it with tumeric, but boswellia alone is the key supplement. And believe me, I have tried everything!

I had pain in my hands, wrists, and forearms from typing. Because I rely on computer work for my job, the stress associated with this inflammation was high, which only created more fear around typing and more inflammatory episodes.

I also had osteoarthritis in my fingers, which was a new development on top of the chronic tendonitis.

Now, I take two boswellia tablets in the morning with my breakfast (1000 mg of standardized 65 percent boswellia extract) and the pain is gone within an hour. I take an additional tablet with my evening meals. And when the pain is gone, I can type, and I don't even remember I had tendonitis.

If you do this every day, you will be amazed at the pain relief. I can type again, knit again, and play guitar again, with no pain from use of my hands. The arthritis pain is also completely gone!

If it seems too good to be true, just research boswellia on the internet and read all the positive reviews online at retailers site. There are many good brands out there. I recommend just selecting a brand based on reading some reviews to get started. It doesn't really matter what brand you choose -- what matters is you give this miraculous anti-inflammatory herb a try!

Hi Jeannine (Seattle), Thanks for your comments on Boswellia for tendonitis. As you had chronic tendonitis, did you take blood tests to determine levels of creatine kinase, an enzyme showing extent of muscle deterioration. If so, did taking bosellia lower the level of this enzyme? - Larry

Hi Jeannine. What wonderful results you have obtained from Frankincense! This is surely wonderful news for Arthritis and Tendonitis sufferers. You call it "Indian Frankincense". Could it possibly be sourced from the Sultinate of Oman instead? That is where I understood that the majority of Frankincense comes from (and has done so for thousands of years! ). At one time it was more precious than gold! But of course it was mainly used for incense. Maybe you don't really care but you may wish to follow up on the wonderful, colorful history of this stunted tree that grows mainly in the Dhofar Mountains of south-western Oman. The B.B.C. did a great programe on the journey taken by the Omani and Yemeni camel traders who shipped vast quantities across difficult terain. Just a bit of background to add to your inspiring story!

Hi Larry,

No, I did not have my creatine tested, to the best of my knowledge. If they tested it in prior bloodwork within the last few years, nothing showed up. The tendonitis developed for me just in 2016, and it resulted from overuse and stress. Still going strong with bowellia.

Hi Michael -- my boswellia is from the boswellia serrata tree. Not sure from where it's sourced. I hope to be able to catch that BBC documentary at some point! It truly is a natural product that heals not only tendonitis and arthritis, but also many other ailments!
