Some Information on Herbs Culled

From Many Sources

It is important for us to know about helpful herbs. The Western tradition of herbal use is different than in most Eastern traditions. In traditional Chinese Medicine, herbs are generally used in combinations. Not so in Western.

If one believes that herbs contain active ingredients, caution must be used. But there are many useful sources to look at for more information on herbs.

Please discuss your use of herbs with your health care provider.
