Clinical Mentoring webinar with Prof. Kerry Bone

The clinical focus has been on bioavailable curcumin as the go-to herbal for any type of inflammation. This webinar asks, do willow bark and Boswellia have any clinical relevance beyond osteoarthritis, and have they even been superseded for this? Is willow bark just a type of mild herbal aspirin, with all of the side effects, but fewer of the benefits of the drug?

In his presentation, Kerry will review new experimental and clinical evidence supporting the important role of these two valuable herbs in a wide range of therapeutic challenges. In particular, new insights are explored that challenge the common assumptions about clinical uses, mechanisms of action and quality issues.

The presentation will close with the proposition that the rehabilitative potential of these two herbs is currently grossly underestimated, and then invite questions and discussions about how we can maximise their clinical potential for the benefit of our patients.

Clinical mentoring gives you the chance to ask the mentor any questions you have, including case questions, and have them answered by the best in the business.


  • Why willow bark is NOT a type of herbal aspirin
  • A new key target for willow bark involving an important “danger” signaling pathway in the innate immune system
  • The role of both herbs in autoimmunity
  • The role of both herbs in lung disease
  • The relationship of Boswellia to the blood-brain barrier, and resultant implications for neuroplasticity
  • Why it is important to use whole Boswellia extracts
  • Why it is important to meet a defined dosage threshold for willow bark
