Combining Herbal medicine with current prescriptions

Since many modern medications originate from plant extracts, herbal remedies effectively (yet gently) treat a host of illnesses. Free from synthetic chemicals, herbal medicine is a safe way to restore your body back to health.

You can also safely use herbal remedies alongside prescription drugs. However, there are specific medications which could interact with a herbal prescription.

In this instance, Patricia advises you to seek guidance if unsure. It is always better to speak to a professional herbalist who will prepare a herbal remedy that’s safe for you to take, than buy over-the-counter remedies and be unaware of their effect.
