    The reason WebMD tells you not to take it if you have Crohn's or IBS is because it is used to cause Crohn's and IBS to go into remission. Apparently it is used to treat those things.

    I've used Boswellia for inflammation caused by Osteoarthritis for 6 months. I feel 90% better. Am able to walk without pain. No need for Aleve or other pain killers. I can't say enough for its effectiveness. I've had no side effects.

    Boswellia aka Indian Frakincense is used for arthritis. It is an anti-inflammatory. This description is for Blessed Thistle aka Cnicus and is used to promote lactation. These are two very different natural herbs. Webmd you need to correct your database!

    Fabulous, but I am referring to Boswellia, not the herb described in this entry. Please check your database as Blessed Thistle is not Boswellia
