Herbs are rich in micro and macro elements, as well as vitamins and antioxidants. Due to the richness of medicinal ingredients, they can help in the treatment of diseases and protect against their development. Doctors themselves often recommend taking them, but there is one condition – phytotherapy cannot be carried out on your own.
Some herbs can affect the absorption of medications and reduce their effect, and if taken in excess, they have side effects. In addition, they may cancel each other’s actions or react with each other, posing a health risk. In herbal medicine, the amount of herbs is important, as well as the method of their preparation. Pregnant women and nursing mothers should exercise particular caution when using them.
Ideally, plant therapy should take place under medical supervision. You can also ask a specialist in traditional medicine or a pharmacist for advice on taking herbs.
