Natural Medicines Have Contraindications Too!

Some commercial medicines can be taken right away without doctor’s prescription. While others cannot be taken or bought easily with no physician consent. Drugs have contraindications. They could have unwanted outcome if mixed with other medications.

Guess what! Natural remedies have contraindications too. So it is best to do some head breaking research before taking any.

Here are two examples:

1) Insulin and Traditional Chinese medicine for diabetes might cause hypoglycemia.
2) Aspirin and gingko biloba might cause hyphemia – the outer eye portion is being filled with blood.

Natural medicines are not the focus of many medical studies. Contraindications of many herbals are not known.
