Most of the people around the globe are aware of the term Ayurveda and then there are others that do consume herbs and herbal medicines, but don't know what the concept is called. Ayurveda is no recently found concept; it exists right from the time of the world's existence. In this, the medicines are all naturally made. People go deep down the forests, dig in different herbs, find different natural things from the nature and then finally transform them into medicines, by clubbing them together.
The process may sound easy to you, but it is not. There are specialists who go deeper into the forests and find different herbs to know how and for what they can be used. But here, I am not going to talk about how herbal medicines are made. That is perhaps something that you and I already have ideas about. However, there are some things about USA herbal products that you probably don't know. Read below to find about this products:
Herbal products may use some chemicals – Strange, but true, there are a lot of companies out there that use certain chemicals as well for the sake of giving the best results to the people who consume the same. I don't know what to say about such companies, but all I know is that this is as good as misleading the buyers, because all the herbal companies are in demand since they assure the buyers that their products are 100% natural.
Herbal products may make you gain weight – There are some herbal products out there that make you gain weight, which is something that you surely don't want. There are certain ingredients in the products that increase your appetite, and if you eat all the wrong things, you end up with unintentional weight gain problems.
Some of the herbal products can harm you during pregnancy – Although it is said that none of the USA herbal products have side-effects, there are chances for you to even lose your pregnancy if you consume them when you're expecting. Therefore, unless your doctor has told you to consume a particular herbal product, stay away from it!
Herbal products can't be consume by babies – Infants are not supposed to use herbal products or they may go through moderate to severe health related products. Sometimes, the infants find it difficult to cope up with the herbs that are used to make the products.
You are not supposed to ‘mix' two to three different medicines – If you are already on some kinds of a prescribed allopathic or homeopathic or both medicines, DO NOT begin with herbal products as well.
Advice to all readers - you should always consult your doctor before starting with any herbal product. Unless you are using the product for something really minor, like a pimple on the face or dandruff in the hair, taking the advice or suggestion from an experienced doctor is always good.
