Your Body is Your Responsibility – Be Safe When Taking Natural Remedies
While every care is taken by us to provide you with safe and beneficial natural remedies, it is important to know that everything you ingest alters your body in some way. Just like conventional medicine, natural remedies can be harmful when not used correctly and should be used with the same care and respect as conventional medicines.
The Risk is Real
Extra special care has to be taken when you are taking conventional medicine in conjunction with natural remedies. It could reduce or enhance the effects of either kind of medicine, or even cause potential side effects. Some natural remedies interact with medications broken down by the liver. Others may increase the risk of bleeding in people who take anticoagulant medication like warfarin or anti-inflammatory medicines like aspirin. It is even possible for women who are taking oral contraceptives to fall pregnant when they are taking certain natural remedies.
What to Do
If you are taking conventional medicine and are interested in taking natural remedies, speak to the natural remedy vendor about the medication you are be taking. It is important to know that what you put into your body will heal you, and not harm you. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.
