Although this were approved medicinal herbs, We have to consider some guidelines before using this.
1. Avoid use of pesticides with this herbs.
   knowing that most of the herbs needed to be boiled and drink after wards , it is not advisable to use pesticides when raising these plants.
2. Use Clay pot
   it is important to some appropriate herbs to be planted on clay pot. This is also
   to make sure that the herbs grew clean and receives enough nutrients without competing to other ground plants
3. Use only the part of the plant that being advocated.
   if it is not said to use then don't. remember to follow instructions carefully.
4. MOST IMPORTANT: if allergy occurs, immediately stop the the use of a particular herbal meds.
   it still depends on our body how to react to any kind of medication.
5. After 2-3 doses and not relieved for a certain illness, consult the physician.
   herbal medication is a first line basis. Some instances that the body cannot compensate to the light effect of the natural herbs.

On my own perception, it is better to try first the available resources before we proceed to expensive one. Besides this will not be accepted if it was not done through process that proves its effectiveness.
Drugs that were made or processed already in the bottle, no matter how the manufacturer insisted that it was natural it is NOT.

Always consult first physician. It is best to be seen by a doctor before making or doing any action.
