Chinese Herb-Thunder God Vine?

Bunny Silverman | Aug 8, 200208:19 PM

My mother-in-law has intractable arthritis in her hands and knees. A friend of hers recommended a Chinese herb that is some sort of folk treatment. She is hoping for some relief, and has asked me to help in its location.

I'm pretty comfortable navigating China-Town, and recall there are several pharmacies there. Does one just go in and ask for the herb? How much should I expect to spend? Has anyone else heard of this, I don't want her to get sick.

The herb is called TWHF or Tripterygium Wilfordii Hook F or the Chinese name is the exciting...Thunder God Vine. Any help or information greatly appreciated.
