Herbal Supplements and Remedies
Herbal supplements or remedies are made using either dried or fresh plants or plant extracts. Herbal remedies have been used to treat illnesses since the beginning of time. In contrast to traditional medicines which extract one component from a plant, herbal remedies use the whole plant. Aspirin for example used to be made from an extract from the bark of a white willow. St. John's Wort products, which is used for mild anxiety, often contain the whole plant.
It is generally safe to use herbal supplements however, if you are on any prescribed medication you need to tell us and inform your doctor you want to try herbal remedies. You cannot use herbal remedies if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. You also need to contact your doctor if you are suffering from a heart condition, epilepsy, Type 1 diabetes, just had or about to have an operation. Don't hesitate to ask any of us about the safety of taking herbal remedies, we do have a list with drug interactions and side effects, but you always need to inform your GP first if you are on prescribed medication.
