Plants contain many powerful substances and may have strong reactions within the person taking them. If you have any concerns or questions about what you are experiencing, we encourage you to contact your medical herbalist. Our members take the safety and care of their patients seriously.
It is important that you write down the exact names and dosages of any prescription drugs you are taking when you visit your medical herbalist. Prescription drugs may interact with herbal medicines, and NZAMH practitioners are trained to know what is safe and have access to check any possible interactions through the Therapeutic Research Natural Medicine database.
