Question

I read an article saying that propolis was good for the immune system. My husband has rheumatoid arthritis, and this attacks the immune system. I was wondering if taking propolis would be any good in this respect.

Answer

Actually rheumatoid arthritis is the immune system attacking joint tissue, which it shouldn't do. So it's the immune system going out of control. I don't think it would do him any harm at all. Whether it would do him any good, I couldn't really say. There have been many claims made, but not many have been substantiated I don't think.
