The use of herbal products is common among people with rheumatologic conditions. There is a growing body of evidence demonstrating the beneficial effects of botanicals for a variety of rheumatologic conditions. Herbal science is evolving and our ability to study complex mixtures and complex systems is steadily growing. Botanicals will continue to hold a place in modern medicine, providing remedies that are effective at a lower cost and with fewer serious side effects. Health care practitioners should ask patients about their use of herbal medicines and counsel appropriately.
