    It should now give some of those who have the beleive that in places like this, health issues are no handdled with herbs at all. However I think herbs give the best solution to health problems.

    John, I think people who live in rainforest have a lot of these herbs on their tables as food everyday. For us here – these herbs are remedies, for them there- it is food.

    I am not very clear on this particular issue. This is because other says one need to consult a doctor before taking supplements. one on the other hand says she didnot consult a doctor before taking it and it was quite successful. So which of the two methods is advisible for high blood patience?

    People who have health problems should contact doctor before taking herbs. I’m myself using Amazon Herb products for three years and it works for me. I do a lot of online research and I got certification in Nutrition to understand better mine and my family needs. It is hard to find good herbalist, regular doctors won’t be advising in herbal medicine.
