Good point! I never caught the difference in club and claw when it
was being discussed by Mike and Glenn...I just figured we had been
discussing the Devil's Club and not even thinking of looking to see
that it was Devil's Claw. I could of possibly given the wrong herbal
thing thinking I was giving the correct one if I had been out there
looking and listening to people discuss different treatment
courses...Gee, time for me to start paying attention... Thanks for
the correction...Too many names so close together.
