3 Comments on The truth about herbal ‘medicines’

  1. The easiest way to convince yourself that herbal medicines don’t work is to check “herbs at a glance”: https://nccih.nih.gov/health/herbsataglance.htm

    This is the branch of US National Institutes of Health that evaluates complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). It is nothing if not sympathetic to CAM. It has spent something like $2 billion, but failed to come up with a single useful treatment.

    If you click on any of the herbs in “herbs at a glance” and check the “what the science says” section, you’ll see that even NCCIH doesn’t claim they are useful.

    Herbal medicine is personalized prescription. Properly used is far better than chemical pills.

      You ARE aware that every element on the periodic table is a chemical, and that the condition of “zero chemicals” is also known as “the vacuum of space”?

      If you combine the two elements Oxygen and Hydrogen, you get the chemical “Dihydrogen Monoxide”, better known by its trade name, “Water”. Yes, it can be toxic: the condition of water intoxication interferes with the transmission of electrical signals across your nervous system, which can lead to a potentially fatal cardiac arrhythmia.

      Herbal medicine is just “chemicals without dosage control”.
