Devil’s Claw .....dosage is critical and the simple fact is that many commercial preparations of Devil's claw do not get close to the amounts used in clinical trials or what has been used in traditional herbal medicine practice. The dose range recommended by the renowned Rudolph Weiss M.D for Devil's claw gives a good idea as to how much is needed. He writes 'The recommended daily dose is 1.5 gms of the drug for loss of appetite and 4.5 gms for rheumatic disease. The tea is prepared by pouring two cups of boiling water on one teaspoonful (1.5gms) or one tablespoon full (4.5 grams) of the finely chopped or coarsely powdered drug; this is allowed to stand for 8 hours at room temperature, then strained. The tea prepared in this way can then be divided into two or three doses to be taken warm shortly before meals'.
