Beware of crabby info on herbs in Mr Google

At times, I was questioned by some of you regarding information on herbs found in Mr.Google.

While it is useful to do some research on your own, I suggest a prudent approach when it comes to Google information. It does not matter whether the information comes from the  University of Maryland or a product company or even a medical doctor who claimed to know herbs (ask him or her whether he was trained professionally or whether he had taken any of the herbs before).

I even found flawed information in the Harvard University’s section on complementary medicine. It is interesting when a person say herbs are not safe is the same person who drinks alcohol, eats a crappy diet, and take drugs. It is equally amazing when someone says a certain herb can cure everything.

I am part of a professional organization (registered in Australia) to give you a balanced approach when it comes to herb information.

Do your research. Great! But be prudent!
