Are Herbs Safe?

A lot of people are hesitant when it comes to herbs because of the belief that herbs are dangerous. Some websites out there will really scare some people away from herbs. The truth is that some herbs are dangerous (which I will try and list out for you on this website) and some are not. The question is which herbs are okay for internal purposes and which are okay for external purposes? Because ALL herbs serve a purpose. They are ALL useful.

A LOT of herbs are not only safe internally, they are extremely beneficial to your health (with no harmful, deadly side effects!). In fact, the only reason these sites claim they are dangerous is because taken in conjunction with medications it can harm the individual. This is true and I list this out in the Cautions section of each Herb page on this website. This is because what medications are supposed to do like lower blood pressure, herbs do also, so if you are taking an herb and taking medication that do exactly the same thing than it can potentially be too much and harm you.

I’m sure during your television watching and seen an ad pop up on a prescription drug. I remember when I first saw these begin to appear on television. The first question that popped into my head was, “Why are they advertising this to me? Shouldn’t my doctor know what I need?” The commercial appears to be all happy, healthy, and fun but then the ad starts to list off all the side effects (while still showing happy pictures) and a lot of times one of the side effects is death? To me this is horrifying. Society has brainwashed us into trusting these man-made concoctions that only treat the symptom and not the cause.

Doctors get paid thousands of dollars to push these pills. In fact, one doctor told me that she got out of the public practice and only practices privately because the training nowadays for doctors is to diagnose and treat with pills, not with proper nutrition and diet and not with herbs. If they don’t, they get penalized and lose money for not pushing the pills. This includes vaccines! Doctors get paid hundreds of dollars for everyone they inoculate with a vaccination. It’s just sick. An article written by Wellness and Equality outlines the real cost pediatricians make to promote vaccines. Click Here to read this. You will be shocked. It’s not about the health of our children, it’s all about the money.  Here’s an excerpt taken from Wellness and Equality’s article:

“The average American pediatrician has 1546 patients, though some pediatricians see many more. The vast majority of those patients are very young, perhaps because children transition to a family physician or stop visiting the doctor at all as they grow up. As they table above explains, Blue Cross Blue Shield pays pediatricians $400 per fully vaccinated child. If your pediatrician has just 100 fully-vaccinated patients turning 2 this year, that’s $40,000. Yes, Blue Cross Blue Shield pays your doctor a $40,000 bonus for fully vaccinating 100 patients under the age of 2. If your doctor manages to fully vaccinate 200 patients, that bonus jumps to $80,000. “

Here’s another article by Business Insider on the drugs doctors get paid the most to promote.

According to Business Insider:

Here are the top 20 drugs competing for profit and the conditions they’re used to treat:

“1. Victoza, type-2 diabetes

2. Eliquis, anti-clotting drug

3. Brilinta, blood-thinner

4. Invokana, type-2 diabetes

5. Latuda, schizophrenia

6. Xarelto, anti-clotting drug

These are common illnesses weighing on Americans today. The Health Industry is a money making machine and all it costs them is your health.

This is why I have created this site. I truly believe in saving lives and with herbs. Knowing how to use herbs is key. Each herb is unique and has it’s own use. ALL herbs are good for something. Some herbs are only great externally (not to be taken in orally) while others are only beneficial internally, and then you have some herbs that can taken internally and externally. With knowledge comes power, and knowing how to use herbs to treat yourself will not only benefit you and your family, but may save your life. God created these wonderful plants to help us so take advantage of it!

  1. Wow, I knew that doctors pushed pills, but I never knew it was this bad, referring to vaccines. That’s just terrible to think about.

    When my mom was alive, she was all for herbs and natural methods of healing. I mean, we would still take pain killer medicines for headaches from time to time, and maybe cough syrup if we don’t have mint leaves, but apart from that, her solution to most problems was always tea. It’s kind of a Jamaican thing 🙂

    What herb, would you say is your favourite? My mother loved the moringa plant.

    1. Catnip has to be my favorite 🙂 Moringa is lovely as well, I’ll be adding a page on that eventually. Your mother was wise. 

  2. One of our favorites is lavender/tea tree oil. We use it for a lot of things around the house. We also like peppermint its a great cleaner (along with eucalyptus).
