Akeake can be used for inflammatory joint conditions such as arthritis and gout. Used in conjunction with a diet rich in foods that fight inflammation and a reduction in inflammatory causing foods. As well as anti-inflammatory actions Akeake is also immunomodulatory and analgesic. A small handful of leaves simmered in a litre of water is a great supportive treatment for anyone with these complaints. Take a warmed cupful daily.
