When it comes to your health, you do have a choice.
Medicinal herbs range from common kitchen staples such as ginger, cinnamon, and garlic, to more potent, potentially toxic herbs that can be as powerful as synthetic drugs and require the expertise of a trained professional. Herbs are the most widely used modality in Asian countries today because they are more convenient and often more effective than acupuncture alone. People don’t have time to go to their acupuncturist every day, but they can take herbs in the comfort and convenience of their homes.
Can I take herbs if I am also taking prescription medication?
Part of Oriental Medicine education includes classes in pharmacology and herb-drug interactions, so your practitioner should be aware if herbs would be contraindicated with any medication you are taking.
