Herbal monographs for other commonly used herbs

Humans have been using herbs for their medicinal properties for 10s of thousands of years. Today, over 70% of Americans take both dietary supplements and prescription or over-the-counter drugs. Sometimes, these drugs and supplements may interact in harmful ways. It’s important to tell all your health care providers about all dietary supplements and drugs you take. That way, they can help you avoid harmful interactions. We recommend that you consult with a registered herbalist before you start taking one of these herbs. Herbs can have phytochemical properties that can alter your physiology and interact with your medications.
