Herbal medicine – fact or fiction?
How does one separate the truth from the hype? Most of what you find online is anecdotal evidence. Can you trust someone who is trying to make a sale? It’s one thing to believe a certain treatment is useful in your own particular case (placebo effect or otherwise). It’s another to recommend its use for others. I often tell my patient that every helpful medicine or herb is also a potential poison.
The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine offers a free brochure entitled Herbs at a Glance, which outlines what each herb is used for, how it is used, what the science says, and side effects and cautions.
Download and print this 55-page free booklet at the link above to include with your prepping supplies. I would consider this a starting place, to guide you toward useful remedies.
