Herbal Safety Guidelines
Before using an herb you are unfamiliar with, find out
it's medicinal properties. Research it thoroughly
and/or consult with an appropriately qualified
practitioner or expert. If you are taking prescription
drugs or have a medical condition, check with an
appropriately qualified practitioner before using
herbs medicinally. Herbs have shown overwhelming
evidence that they work. Just because a small amount
works well does NOT mean that more is better. As
individuals we all have different constitutions,
sensitivities, allergic reactions and possible health
conditions. The following are merely guidelines for
herbal products sold on our web sites. Consult your
physician or health care provider before using any
supplement. Dietary supplements may not be risk-free
under certain circumstances. If you are pregnant,
nursing a baby, or have a chronic medical condition,
such as, diabetes, hypertension or heart disease,
be sure to consult your doctor or pharmacist before
purchasing or taking any supplement. While vitamin
and mineral supplements are widely used and
generally considered safe, you may wish to check
with your doctor or pharmacist before taking these
or any other dietary supplements. If you plan to use
a dietary supplement in place of drugs or in
combination with any drug, tell your health care
provider first. Many supplements contain active
ingredients that have strong biological effects and
their safety is not always assured in all users.
If you have certain health conditions and take these
products, you may be placing yourself at risk.
Some supplements may interact with prescription and/or
over-the-counter medications. Taking a combination of
supplements or using these products together with
medications (whether prescription or OTC drugs) could
under certain circumstances produce adverse effects.
Be alert to advisories about these products, whether
taken alone or in combination. Some supplements may have
unwanted effects during surgery. It is important to
fully inform your doctor of the vitamins, minerals,
herbals or any other supplements you are taking,
especially before surgery. You may be asked to
stop taking these products at least 2-3 weeks ahead of the
procedure to avoid potentially dangerous supplement/drug
interactions - such as changes in heart rate, blood
pressure and increased bleeding - that could adversely
affect the outcome of your surgery.
