ArthriPhase, TMJ And Concern For NSAID Allergy


I have been taking ArthriPhase for 2 weeks now. I am taking it to, hopefully, help heal TMJ’s (Temporo-Mandibular Joints) damaged by 13 years of dental “practice” (teeth being straightened, re-crowned, etc. to relieve TMJ pain). The TMJ experimentation didn’t work very well, but it helped some.

Now, the wonderful thing is that with ArthriPhase I can get through the day without taking an NSAID or Tylenol. I think ArthriPhase is really helping, not just to relieve pain, but also to heal these joints. Thank you.

My sister has chronic pain from arthritis inflammation in her hands. I would love to get her some ArthriPhase. She cannot take NSAIDs because some ingredient in them causes her to go into anaphylactic shock. Her physician has forbidden her to take any of them, but she can take Tylenol (which doesn’t do much for the pain or the inflammation). Are any of the ingredients in ArthriPhase dangerous to my sister? I know that it may not be possible to determine whether ArthriPhase would cause anaphylactic shock in a person severely allergic to NSAIDs. Please let me know, if you can.

Thank you for your wonderful work. I depend on OsteoPhase, MetaPhase, Vital Cell (I have type 2 diabetes) and now ArthriPhase. I am such a fan of Tango Advanced Nutrition.

Sincerely, Polly W.


  1. Dear Polly,

    I am not surprised that ArthriPhase is helping your joints to heal and reduce their pain without recourse to NSAIDs, as that is the intent and history of the formula. Based on the feedback we are getting and the herbs in the formulation we do expect to see this type of result and are pleased that is occurring for you. You may also eventually experience relief from the TMJ damage as you continue taking the remedy.

    As to your sister’s arthritis, I do not suspect that any of the ingredients in ArthriPhase would harm her or cause anaphylactic shock, an extreme allergic reaction to the drugs. A primary ingredient in the formula, gastrodia, is the primary ingredient in our allergy formula, AllerPhase. There are also two types of aconite in small amounts in the remedy–they are commonly used in Chinese herbal hospitals to counter anaphylactic shock. However, she should proceed cautiously and start with just 1 capsule per day for 4 to 5 days to gauge her reactions.

    We are very pleased that our other products are helping you so much. Yours is the type of note that makes our business so worthwhile and rewarding.

    John Steinke, L.Ac.
