What to do before starting an herbal remedy


Many visitors to this site are researching a specific herb that they believe will help them with a specific condition. While numerous herbs have clinically proven benefits, we encourage you to do a few things before you purchase and start taking one.

1) Make sure you research the health condition here. Either search for the health condition or find it in the list below the search box. Once you find your health condition, you will receive an extensive list of holistic things you can do to help that condition.

2) Make sure you are taking care of your overall health. It will do little good to take an herb for a specific condition if you are not taking care of your total body. Everyone should be taking a high quality multi-vitamin and Omega 3 (a fish oil product). You should also probably take a probiotic.

If you are not taking these basic supplements, we recommend Enfuz from Vitabase. When you take a small packet of pills each day, you get all the basic nutrition you need. Each packet contains a multi-vitamin, CoQ10 (for heart health), Omega 3, Vitamin D-3, a probiotic, and a powerful set of antioxidants to help your body fight off disease.

3) Rather than focusing on one herb, consider a formula. Formulas combine several herbs that are used to help with a specific health condition together. Generally, formulas work better than specific herbs.

4) Make sure that the herb does what you think it does. If you search for an herb in our herb database, you will see what conditions it is expected to help.
