Herbs perform many healing functions in the body, but they must be used appropriately, not indiscriminately. Although herbal remedies are less likely to cause side effects, they can be very potent. Not all plant life is beneficial. There are poisonous plants, and some of them are deadly, especially if used for long periods of time. Since herbs contain active ingredients, you should be aware that some of these elements may interact negatively with prescribed medications. This course is designed to teach you about the safety of herbs and how to use them appropriately for yourself and others.
