It is not the intention of this website or its contents either to promote or criticize any herbal preparation or application, but merely to outline the potential medicinal properties of certain herbs and to alert both health care providers, as well as the public, about the possible risks pertaining to the use of a particular herb, as well as to the potential interactions a herbal preparation may have, if taken concurrently with a certain medication or other herbs.

The information presented in the herbal fact sheets, monographs, presentations, and diverse articles is based on the most recent scientific literature available at this time. However, there is still a lack of clinical information regarding several of the medicinal plants employed in current alternative and folk medicine around the world. It is therefore strongly recommended that no one use any product, herbal or otherwise for self-medication. It is important to seek qualified professional advice before undertaking any treatment whatsoever.
