Native to southern Africa, devil's claw (Harpagophytum procumbens) gets its name from the tiny hooks that cover its fruit. Historically, devil's claw has been used to treat pain, liver and kidney problems, fever, and malaria. It has also been used in ointments to heal sores, boils, and other skin problems.
According to herbal medicine practitioners prepare by adding one teaspoon (1.5 grams) to one tablespoon (4.5 grams) of powdered devil's claw to two cups of boiling water. Allow to steep for six to eight hours. You can then strain the tea, discarding the leftover root, and drink it in two to three doses throughout the day.
