Quick Overview

If your joints need to move to ease stiffness the way a rusty gate needs to be exercised to open freely, Rhus could be just what your joints need. Rhus is #1 for helping the body relieve various joint symptoms: stiff achy joints, minor arthritic stiffness, backache and related pains that need gentle motion. Rhus can soothe a range of skin symptoms: blistering itchy rashes, common hives, acne, eye irritations; as well as symptoms of tickling coughs, restlessness, nervous fatigue and headaches. Rhus applies best when symptoms improve with heat and motion and worsen at night, while sitting still, and in damp cold weather.
