Herbs I Use And Their Possible Side Effects

Herbs, and the people who use them, are still considered rather primitive as far as the government is concerned so there is very little legislation, protection, or guidance for those of us who use them in our practice. Because of this we have to be super careful about everything we do and say. I have my own little "FDA approved"-type wording on my Etsy account but I get worried that people won't pay attention, so I'm creating this post which I will update on occasion with links to a Physicians' Desk Reference site and to the specific herbs I use. If anyone has any concerns or questions about how the herbs in my products will affect them they can use this as a guide as well as contact their own doctor for advice.

Alfalfa, Ashwaganda, Astralagus, Barley, Calendula, Chamomile, Coriander, Damiana, Dandelion, Eyebright, Fennel, Gingko, Ginger, Gotu Kola, Grapeseed, Jasmine, Kava Kava, Lavender, Marshmallow, Passion Flower, Peppermint, Red Clover, Rosemary, Tumeric, Valerian, Wild Carrot, Wild Yam, Yohimbe
