Herbal supps are not meant to replace pharmaceutical drugs. At the same time herbals shouldn´t be understimated at all because some can be as potent or more than a specific drug with the difference that you know what to expect from the drug for the good and for the bad and you know it´s been created under strict control. On the other side with herbals you are somehow blind about interactions and side effects unless you´ve got some knowledge on it and their making process is generaly ok.
Self-research is needed if you want to start supplementing an herbal supp.

Cannot find where the UCLA Center for Clinical Nutrition is doing their press release stuff, but Dr. Heber is one on the most brilliant men I have ever met. Get a copy of his book if you would like to learn about nutrition.

If you were to take into account the studies surrounding placebos, you might acknowledge the fact that the person taking the cure has a lot to do with how the cure affects the body.... be it chemically manufactured or out of your own back yard garden.

Every study includes a control. Placebo generally accounts for about 30% of the effect either way. This applies to just about everything--aspirin include.

I think using herbs is the best way for treatment.

Chinese Traditional medicine contains a lot of herbs usage and the country can be typical one with rich culture and history on herbs. Now herbs are getting more and more attention of scientists in the field, with which more and more studies and researches are conducted. It seems that herbs are like mysteries to the western and many people just don't rely them. With thousands years practical application, Chinese traditional medicine is proved to be safe effective but requiring a relative long time. The modern Drug Discovery ( BOC Sciences ) may do better in covering wide range of diseases treatment but still lag behind in the safety and effectiveness in some chronic diseases. All in all, herbs are worth to be tried.
