Traditional herbal medicine is a very common and relatively inexpensive option for treating chronic diseases, including heart disease, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.
But there are a number of risks associated with using traditional medicine.
Here are a few things you should know before you decide to try them.
Traditional medicine may not be effective The use of traditional herbal remedies may not provide you with all of the health benefits of the drug it’s based on.
For example, a study from Harvard University found that many of the benefits of using traditional medicines are only partly due to the medicinal properties of the herbal ingredients.
The study found that a few of the medicinal ingredients found in traditional herbal products may be more effective than those found in the drug that was used.
Traditional herbs can also contain potentially harmful ingredients like caffeine, alcohol, and pesticides.
The Harvard study also found that herbal products with fewer than two ingredients may contain higher levels of side effects than those with more than four ingredients.
The side effects of traditional medicine are not as severe as they are with traditional drugs Traditional herbal remedies are often prescribed to treat specific conditions, but the side effects they can cause are much more severe.
Some studies suggest that the side effect rate of using herbal remedies is lower than that of prescription drugs, but it’s important to keep in mind that there are also many potential side effects that traditional remedies can cause.
Some of the most common side effects include: nausea and vomiting
