Licorice should not be taken on a daily basis for more than seven days. It can cause high blood pressure in some people. Licorice should no be used
if you have glacouma, high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease or if you are pregnant.
Ephedra should also be used with caution! Esp. if you are prone to anziety attacks.
I use herbal capsules. Hawthorn for heart health. Echinicea when I feel a cold coming on. Valerian for good sleep--it does not usually affect my
dreams. Scullcap is a good tranquilizer.
Crystallized ginder for an upset stomach.
Some herbs I have used have NOT worke: damiana and feverfew.
Care should be takes with any herbs. They are after all drugs.
And we sure don't want anyone to have sever side effects and cause the government to have more ammunition to further regulate herbals
