Some of our current most popular medicines were originally derived from herbs. Because herbs are naturally-grown substances, almost everyone assumes they are universally good for us. Every day someone with a particular ailment can find an herb that will cure the problem. The problem with the use of herbs lies in the fact that very few have undergone a complete chemical analysis which will reveal all of the different chemicals which they contain. Too little has been done to investigate the safety of herbs and even less has been written. Producers and sellers of herbs are likewise ignorant of the effect their promotional enthusiasm may have in creating adverse problems to our gut and other body parts.
