and you haven't heard of Echinacea?
"Echinacea: marketed for the common cold; no good, consistent studies have been done. "
What's actually in a herbal remedy is not regulated, e.g. ingredients and dose , and even if it is what-it-says-on-the-tin , herbal remedies are
not usually untested for efficacy and safety, so disasters can occur , see ...
A quote by mr Einstein for you
"Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former. "
You understand herbs contain chemicals, these same chemicals are used in pharmaceutical medications between 1980 and 1992 25% of all pharma medicines
contained one chemical from a herbal plant that was not synthesized the majority of the other 75% all have synthetic ingredients derived from plants
and animals due to the fact that you cannot patent a plant
please stop quoting all of this disinformation or is this how you get your kicks
Echinacea is proven to enhance the immune system there are 78 separate scientific studies done on Echinacea that are all listed in the review of
natural products 8th edition which are factually based not woo or whatever words you want to use and some of these studies prove that the lipophilic
fraction is responsible for the immunostimulating effect of echinacea
the American Indians have used it for however long they have been about I know white people were there 9000 years ago so since then hey and you are
right people do die from taking herbs an Italian zookeeper had a constipated elephant. He decided to give the poor beast a laxative (senna or castor
oil-based, no doubt), and happened to walk behind the distressed pachyderm at the most inopportune moment. Drowning was listed as the official cause
so herbs are especially dangerous especially when mixed with elephants LOL
I do know of one guy who was at deaths door and his family gave him some dandelion root and he had a reaction to it and died but what your trying to
do is put people off genuine medication that doesn't normally kill you unlike pharmaceutical medication which kill a huge amount of people, chemo
kills 50% of all people who take it not the cancer
I know I'm wasting my time responding to you but its worth it if others pick up on this so lets have a look at evening primrose oil which contains
gla here's what WebMD says about gla which is extremely high in black currant oil as well
oh look your website says it does nothing yet another website which is scientifically backed states the complete opposite
you have no idea of what you are talking about 70% of illness can be attributed to bad diet so why don't doctors know anything about diet some do I
know but the majority get no training in it in there courses as im sure our dr truth here can tell us
