This is an important albeit somewhat slippery topic.  Every person is different and just as with any substance, we each have the potential to react differently to herbs.  Yet there are ways to approach and use herbs safely so we can harvest the amazing health enhancing benefits of plants.

In fact, people often make the mistake of thinking herbs are completely safe because they are a natural products.  While others consider herbs unsafe due to lack of testing and regulation.  The truth is that just as with anything there are benefits and risks with using herbs.  So how can you reap the benefits of using herbs while lowering, if not eliminating risks?  The more you know when using herbs the safer you will be!
