I love to use natural remedies to address health issues whenever and wherever possible. This is why I became a Master Herbalist. But when it comes down to my health, or the health of anyone else, I prefer to work alongside a doctor to ensure the best treatment. When you choose a solution to a problem, there are many things to consider.

Lad os se...

For at løse et problem skal du besvare flere spørgsmål.

  • Are there other health conditions? Certain conditions can be made worse by herbal remedies. People with high blood pressure should not consume licorice in any form. It can cause blood pressure to rise.
  • Are you taking any medication? Even common remedies like garlic can pose a risk of drug/herb interactions. Garlic can thin the blood, so people who take medications for this purpose should be cautious. Some interactions can prove fatal, such as when is combined with a statin. It is possible to suffer severe muscle damage or even renal failure.
  • Skal du køre eller betjene tunge maskiner? Døsighed kan skyldes mange urter. Du bør ikke køre bil, hvis du tager medicin eller drikker . This is the case with jasmine, and passionflower, as well as St. John’s Wort and chamomile.
  • Hvor alvorlig er din diagnose? Der er nogle sygdomme, som jeg ikke kan hjælpe med. Der er nogle få tilstande, som jeg ikke kan hjælpe med, men de kræver, at jeg arbejder sammen med en læge. Nogle typer af er resistente over for urter, mens andre kan behandles med naturlægemidler. Hvis det er en hjertesygdom, kan jeg anbefale urter som hvidløg. Jeg er forsigtig, fordi mange urter kan interagere med medicin for begge tilstande.
  • Er der nogen allergier? To eksempler illustrerer vigtigheden af dette spørgsmål. Det første er aspirin. Hvis du er allergisk, er du måske også allergisk over for . Du kan også være allergisk over for eller . Det andet er det, der er sket for mig, og som kan ske for dig. Jeg fik nældefeber fra hovedbunden til tåneglene, mens jeg tog sort . Det kunne have forårsaget et anafylaktisk chok, som ville have ført til min død. Hvis du oplever en allergisk reaktion, skal du stoppe med at tage urten. Kontakt din læge.
  • Do you have any dietary restrictions? People who have food allergies or are unable to eat certain foods need extra care when choosing a home remedy. I won’t recommend that you consume oil if you don’t believe you should. Flax oil is a plant that can provide the same benefits. These questions might lead to more questions. That is a good thing. To ensure you receive the best possible treatment, the people who give it must have all the information they can.
