Just about every RX Drug is a Medicine that comes from a specific Plant. Plants as a Life Form have the ability to create complex Molecules that are
not so easily if at all possible to create in the Lab. Perhaps one day Man will be able to synthesize any Molecule he wants but for now the large
Drug Companies spend Billions sending research teams deep into the Rain Forests of the World in search of a variety of Plant based cures.
The problem with Herbal Cures is a lack of proof that what you are getting works as well as if it is a herb that does work...a lack of control of both
dosage as well as potency.
People seem to confuse the issue when they say things like...I would rather take a Natural Herbal Cure than take a Man Made bunch of Chemicals. The
reality is that the vast majority of RX Drugs ARE in fact Plant Derivatives. After some time it may be possible to synthesize the Plants Molecular
Matrix and create the same thing in the lab...but most Drugs are still grown such as Opiate Based Painkillers or Digitalis among thousands.
When a person goes into a Herbal Health Store and buys a bottle of Herbal Remedy they are buying something that may work but the dosage as well as the
potency of the Herbs is not regulated. This can cause severe health issues as well as may interact with other Drugs they may be taking.
It is not too much to ask that such Herbal Medications be at the very least checked for potency as well as the bottle list any possible interactions
that may occur if used while a person is taking other medications.
