In addition to damaged bones and weakening of muscles, rheumatism can attack other organs in the body. Some of the organs that can be affected by rheumatism include the eyes, lungs, kidneys, heart and blood vessels, as well as teeth and mouth.

Various over-the-counter drug are offered to treat rheumatic problems. But if you choose to treat rheumatism with natural ingredients, you can take advantage of lengkuas (galangal). This material has been used by our elders as the main ingredient in anti-rheumatic herbs.

Four our rheumatism herbs, we only need to prepare 2 pieces of lengkuas (each around the size of the thumb), 1 egg yolk, and honey to taste. After all the ingredients are ready, grate the lengkuas and squeeze it to take the water. Add egg yolk and honey to taste in the juice, stir until blended.
