Are Herbs Safe?

Incorrect applications of herbs on patients may cause adverse reactions and, occasionally, more severe problems. For example, using herbs of the Hot nature on a patient with Heat syndromes will only cause exacerbation of the disease.

However, herbs are very safe and effective, especially when prescribed correctly by a properly trained practitioner who can apply their appropriate properties to the corresponding ailments.

Over the centuries doctors have compiled detailed information about the pharmacopoeia and placed great emphasis on the protection of the patient. Allergic type reactions are rare and will cause no lasting damage if the treatment is stopped as soon as symptoms appear.
