Supporters of herbal treatment point out that filling the body with medications and chemicals is never a good thing. However, this does not mean that herbal treatments will always be effective. Using natural herbs and mixing them together in the right proportions can provide relief that antibiotics may fail to provide. However, use of chemicals and controlled regulation of the pharmaceutical industry means that one can of pop a pill without any worries of complications.
On the other hand, herbs are natural substances and will decay over a time. It is not possible to assess the allergic reactions of specific herbs for specific individuals. Dosage is also important. Over dose of antibiotics is always going to cause problems. Excessive dosage of herbal treatments may not lead to complications immediately. However, it is not recommended either.
A lot depends on the skills of the individual offering herbal treatment. From the source of the herbs to the manner in which the medications are prepared-everything matters a lot. Finally, proper analysis of the symptoms and diagnosis of the illness is important. A trial and error approach with the body is never a safe move.
There is also a possibility that the herbal treatments may interfere with the existing medications and chemical treatment. The best option is to opt for one before trying the other. Seeking conventional medical treatment and herbal treatment simultaneously can be very dangerous.
It is important to log on to the internet and know more about the various herbal treatments before proceeding. No treatment, no matter how good it is, can provide immediate and magical relief. Such treatments are dangerous and are best avoided.
