Herbs are a great way to keep your body healthy, and ward off any type of disease and sickness. However, there are numerous herb combinations that could be fatal if you ingest them at the same time. While there is a plethora of information about what herbs you should take, what about the herbs you should not combine with each other? If you accidently combine certain herbs together than the results could be disastrous, and in severe cases, even deadly, because of this, I have provided a guide showing you where to learn more about herb combinations and what herbs you should not use together.
The first step in understanding what herbs you should and shouldn’t combine together, is knowing that most natural herbs are not dangerous when you mix them together. It is when you mix herbs with synthetic medications that the danger becomes a real threat.
Before you begin taking any type of herb, you will need to visit your doctor and discuss what herbs you can and cannot take. This is important if you have pre-existing health problems, and even more important if you are on any medications. Even if you are only on cold medicine, you will need to consult a professional before ingesting any herb.
Perhaps the most important step in taking herbs, is calling your local herbalist. These professionals will be able to inform you what herbs you should mix together, and which ones could be a danger to your health. You can access the Internet for this information, however, it is much quicker, and much more accurate, if you speak with a professional Herbalist, or Herbal Consultant.
When you purchase herbs, make sure that you follow the directions printed on their labels, or told to you from the clerk that served you, very carefully. If there is any danger of mixing an herb together, this information will be readily available to you. Remember, herbs are great for short-term use within your body, however, if you ingest these herbs for long periods of time they can actually raise the toxicity level within your body, thus causing many various health risks and ailments.
Whenever you begin taking a new herb, it is very important that you listen to your body. If you feel any strange sensations that are uncomfortable, discontinue use immediately and see your doctor. These include heart palpitations, any type of vision impairment and chest pains.
