Q&A

Herbs are not regulated by the FDA, but are they safe?

Chinese herbs have been used for approximately 2500 years to treat a wide array of health problems. In general, herbs are safe to use. However, there are herbs that should not be taken during pregnancy or some other health condition, so it is always important to discuss with your doctor which herbs are safe to take.

Is herbal medicine a licensed profession?

Herbal medicine is not a license profession; however, there is Board certification which some practitioners acquire. It is recommended that you consult with a healthcare provider who is educated on the benefits and use of herbs for treatment of your problem.
