Can I Take Medication With My Herbs?

0-559777618-canmedication2

Many people are concerned about mixing medications and herbs.

DHerbs recommends the use of herbs, not pharmaceutical drugs. Prescription medications are often poisonous and toxic to one’s health. Since a pharmaceutical drug is a toxin, it pollutes the bloodstream and taxes the largest internal organ of elimination in the body, the liver.

Benefits of Herbs

On the other hand, herbs are natural.

Herbs are designed to cleanse and purify the human body. Just like the human body, herbs are carbon and copper-based. However, this is not the case with pharmaceutical products. Herbs cleanse every toxin or pollutant in the body. There are specific herbs that do this especially well. These include:

  • Yellow Dock Root
  • Burdock Root
  • Dandelion Root
  • Sassafras
  • Sarsaparilla
  • Chickweed
  • Celedine
  • Goldenseal
  • Echinacea
  • Manjistha

Herbs and Medicine

Combining pharmaceutical drugs and herbs reduces the herbs’ influence and effectiveness. They will counteract each other and will not have the same effect as if you were to take them alone. The herbs that are found in DHerbs’ Full Body Detox counteract the toxins in pharmaceutical drugs.

Can you take your medication while taking the herbs? Yes, but it defeats the purpose of detoxifying in the first place. Simultaneously taking herbs and medication while detoxifying is cleansing and polluting at the same time. It isn’t an effective way to improve one’s health.

If the label on the medicine warns accidental overdose, then the medicine is toxic. If it is necessary to contact a poison control center after consumption of the product, then is shouldn’t be used. Remember, prescription drugs are far more dangerous than herbal remedies.

Generally speaking, Western medicine masks the problem rather than solves it. Most pharmaceutical drugs only provide a limited, short-term relief.

Taking a medication and herbs at the same time will allow the herbs to target the medication. Herbs work and serve to cleanse the body and help remove disease or pathology. On the other hand, a pharmaceutical drug will only mask and prolong the problem.

These herbs have are known to interact with certain prescription drugs:

  • Ginkgo
  • Garlic
  • Licorice Root
  • Kava
  • Asian Ginseng
  • St. John’s Wort

Dangers

Herbs and drugs shouldn’t be taken together because it defeats the purpose of using herbs. In addition to being less effective, mixing herbs and prescription drugs can be dangerous and should be done with much caution.

For instance, drugs that are used to treat high blood pressure, heart disease or diabetes should not be combined with herbs that increase blood pressure. Some common herbs known to increase blood pressure are ginseng, ephedra and Ma Huang.

When used as directed, herbal supplements are safe and should not cause any serious side effects. Herbal supplements contain compounds that are biologically active.

Even though these herbs come from natural sources, they should not be considered safe just because they are sold over the counter. In fact, there are many herbal supplements that are manufactured with unnatural ingredients and toxic fillers.

Determine whether the herbal product is organic or inorganic before deciding if it is safe.

Alternatives

Herbs provide the power to self-heal. With drugs, healing is not involved, only relief. Relief does not heal-it’s palliative. Many Americans are too concerned about the temporary relief rather than curing or healing.

Most Americans choose to eat and live unhealthily and take drugs to mask the effects of their poor diet. They prefer a short-term relief rather than a long-term lifestyle change. If they chose to adapt to a healthy diet and lifestyle, they would experience relief in the form of healing.

    Q: If I stop the man made drugs and start with the herbs how long will it take for the herbs to "kickin" and keep my blood pressure down like the man mades do?

    A:

    Unfortunately there is really no way of knowing how long it would take. A lot of things come into play. How long have you been on meds, what type of diet do you follow, do you exercise? The herbs are going to work faster and better if you follow a raw or vegan lifestyle. The Full Body Cleanse is the best way to starrt a healthier lifestyle.

    Q: Hello Dherbs.com, I really appreciate your site and making these herbs available to all. I have recently had an abnormal pap smear due to HPV and take lysine because of cold sores around mouth area (had problem since a little girl w/these). I am 27 on medication for bipolar schizoaffective disorder, which causes fatigue, dementia, and more. I'm looking for an alternate way to cope and heal the body. I've tried the master cleanse, I fast, and have changed to a healthier diet. I also take B- complex vitamins and drink herbal teas. I would like to try some of your products that would help to heal my conditions. I do not know if I should ask my doctor to take me off the meds before trying herbs, but this is a struggle for me, because my insight and judgment has decreased since I have been on pharmaceuticals. Someday I just want to cry, but I understand the joy and suffering that is a part of life. Are there any recommendations that to help heal my diseases.

    A:

    First of all we would highly suggest you schedule a consultation so we can decipher or decode the emotional root of your problems because the problems lies here. Okay, now for the meds. Drugs can't heal you, Beloved! No part of your body is made up from drugs. God didn't use drugs to make you. The drugs are enhancing your problems if not outright causing them. Give Nature a try! We would suggest you perform the FULL BODY DETOX followed by the WEIGHT RELEASE CLEANSE AND REGIMEN. Clearly there are some emotional imbalances that have resulted in physical disease. Depression speaks from the soul. Are you listening? You can heal, beloved! You CAN heal!

    Q: I am very much aware of herbs ayurvedic and regular from a child. What makes your product lets say for the lymph and blood work better than another brand. Lets say it has the same key ingredients that is specifically for lymph and blood. Why would you need 25 herbs in a blend opposed to just the main 3 for the specific organ or purpose. I am so tired of trying everything, and want to be on a trusted regimen. I already prepared oppose to me buying each herb single and mixing it myself. My goal as a healer is to be well rounded in all the blending of herbs for specific uses. The best place to start the healing process is within yourself and I have been curious about Dherbs.

    A:

    I mean, why only use the top 3 herbs available when so many other good herbs (i.e. alterative herbs, which are good for the blood) exist and are available? Why shortchange the people? Why not be unique? Why not give people the best BLOOD herbs from Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Native American Medicine, Traditional African Medicine, Traditional European Medicine, etc.? If you take the best herbs from around the world and use in your formulations and compounds, it makes a statement that your products are indeed truly for humanity. Who else is doing this? Who else even thinks like this? Our formulas contain many exotic herbs that are very expensive (for other herbalists and manufacturers) and we pride ourselves on going the extra mile to get and provide the BEST for the people (customer), especially if those exotic herbs are available and not curtailed by government regulations (which many are). And in addition to above, providing these unique herbal formulations and compounds for a very economical and reasonable cost. To be the BEST formula, the formula would have to contain the BEST organ-gland specific herbs from around the world. Now THIS, is what makes Dherbs.com unique, at least in my opinion. However, the products speak for themselves. We are the BEST and provide the BEST!

    Q: My aunt keeps returning to the emergency room because she can't breath. Each time I try to get her started on herbs (she's a diabetic, now on dialysis because a medication ruined her kidney - she wouldn't listen to me about herbs over the years) she somehow ends up in the hospital because she can't breath. I don't believe that it's the herbs (the four you recommend for diabetics). What can I do to help her clear up this problem so she won't end up at the hospital again? I'm afraid that she is going to blame it on the herbs, and she won't want to try anything anymore after today.

    A:

    Flush her out with plenty of water. Have her drink herbal tea of Mullein Leaf, Boneset, and/or Fenugreek. You know, it sounds like the medication has really attacked her lungs. Also sounds like her eliminative channels are very, very weak! She should eat only raw fruits and vegetables and consume herbal tea to remove the obstruction that is preventing her from breathing. You know, Beloved, if she is afraid of herbs and not drugs she has the wrong mindset. Fear is negative and shuts down healing. Sometimes, there's only so much you can do to help a person. Some people have made up minds that they can't or won't heal and so there's really nothing you can do to help them.

    Q: I am going to do the full body cleanse and I am a kidney patient on dialysis. I wanted to know if my current medications will hurt me if mix the herbs with them. I currently take clonidine for blood pressure, finasteride for enlarge prostate, metoprolol for blood pressure, diovan for kidney health, dialyvite for blood pressure, and sprionolactone for blood pressure. Do I take the herbs with my meds or in opposite times of the day? I will adhere to your past recommendations and I look forward to the response to these two questions.

    A:
    If you’re worried about the safety and effectiveness of pharmaceutical drugs, you may be especially interested in using a Cleanse to keep your systems clean, clear, and operating at an optimal level.

    Although the argument between pro and anti vaccination can be overwhelming for anyone we recommend doing extensive research on both sides before making a final decision on how to address your health needs. However, if you do choose to vaccinate, we recommend cleansing before and after vaccination in order to prepare and then rid your  body of any byproducts, impurities and toxins as a result of the drugs and help restore their body to optimal health.

    Q: I am on Medication/Prescription Drugs Do you recomend that I stop taking the anti viral drugs that my doctor have me on, while using the FULL BODY DETOX.

    A:

    Answer: This is a personal decision and choice you have to make for yourself. Common Sense would dictate that if drugs cannot heal the human body (and they can’t) and one truly desires to heal, then one would not take that which is contrary to healing. Drugs mask symptoms and do not heal symptom or the cause of the symptom. So why are you taking drugs? Because your doctor said so? Well, what does your body say? What does your gut feeling (instinct) say? Follow your intution!
