Why It's Better For Women To Use Herbal Medicine
By Grace Palce
A Little Something about Herbal Medicine First
Before we should address the issue of possible benefits that women can enjoy from the use of herbal medicine, wouldn't it be proper to know a little something about the history of herbal medicines first?
Herbal medicine has been in use for years and years. If you want to know how long, would you believe it if I said that herbal medicine has been used to cure human afflictions for five thousand years already? That's right. Maybe even Mother Mary herself once benefited from the healing powers of herbal medicine. And was she born even way back than 5,000 years?
The Wonders of Herbal Medicine
It's Cheap - Money matters always so taking herbal medicine is not only better for the body, it's better for the pockets too!
It's Easy to Make - That's right. You can make your own herbal medicine. Just follow the formula the way you would with a kitchen recipe.
It's All Natural - And of course, all-natural is better than man-made more often than not. Because of that, there are fewer reasons to worry about symptoms and side effects. If you're the one making the herbal medicine yourself, do make sure that you're using clean utensils (clean hands also, please!) and the right herbs.
A Little Warning about Herbal Medicine
We can all agree that herbal medicine is truly helpful to the human race. But herbal medicine can also become a danger - but blame the humans (that's us) for that as well.
You have to take the necessary precautions to ensure that herbal medicine will be completely beneficial to your body.
First, if you're going to buy herbal medicine rather than making one for yourself, it's essential that you buy herbal medicine that's produced by a reputable company and buy it from a reputable retailer or seller as well. There are a lot of fake herbal medicines out in the market so just to be safe than sorry, do choose one that has proven to be effective.
Secondly, do be aware that it's very much possible to overdose on herbal medicine. And when that happens, it means that you took more than advised. Hence, do consult your doctor first about the appropriate dosage and even if you feel that it wouldn't harm you to increase the dosage, let's just stick to the safe side once more and follow what the good doctor says.
Lastly, it's imperative that you inform your doctor if you're already taking other medications because it could react negatively when you start taking herbal medicine as well.
