Poisonous Herbs

http://dherbs.com/images/dherbs400x400.jpg
There are several poisonous herbs but they are not readily accessible in stores. Unlike pharmaceutical drugs, herbs are not fatal.


Controversies

Many herbs are banned as toxic or poisonous for political reasons. Some are banned because of one alleged poisonous alkaloid that is only poisonous when isolated and extracted from the entire plant. Remember, nature balances so when man extracts, he's disturbing the natural balance and this is when it becomes harmful.

Poisonous herbs are not the same as controversial herbs, at least not in all cases. Many controversial herbs are not poisonous unless taken in excessive amounts. Controversial herbs are:
  • Ephedra
  • Comfrey
  • Blood Root
  • Sassafras and
  • Kava Kava
Just because a substance is banned doesn't mean it's harmful and just because its approved and available doesn't mean it's safe. Consider pharmaceutical drugs. They are approved and available and yet hundreds of thousands of people are killed by pharmaceutical drugs every year.

Medical doctors tend to believe that herbs are harmful to human health and/or entirely useless.

Many people who study herbs from a Western medical perspective will also admonish against the use and consumption of certain herbs due to their alleged toxicity. This confuses a great deal of people and many people question the usage of certain herbs and their adverse side effects. Many people are confused about Goldenseal Root, Echinacea Root, Ephedra, Kava Kava, Mistletoe, ST. John's Wort, Mandrake and Blood Root.


Studies

Herbalism and herbology are sciences that require rules, procedures and laws when using plants. The same is true of essential oils. All sciences require knowledge.

There are plants that can be ingested or take internally. There are others that should not be ingested and should only be used topically or externally. And then there are plants that you should totally avoid. However, these plants are only found in nature and cannot be found in stores.


Awareness

Knowledge is important when dealing with herbs because of their functions and properties. If a person is interested in herbalism, they should study the functions and properties of various herbs.

Oxytocic herbs are simply counterproductive or adverse to certain functions that may be applicable in a given situation or case with an individual person.

If a woman is breastfeeding, she would not want to consume Black Walnut Hulls or Sage because these herbs have an anti-galactagogue effect. Are these poisonous? No, just counterproductive or detrimental to a certain activity, function or outcome.

Taking an herb before bed that increases oxygen to the brain or that stimulates the brain would be counterproductive to sleep. The brain needs to slow down at night and not be stimulated. So it would not be wise to take Gingko Biloba, Gotu Kola, Green Tea, Guarana or Ginseng before going to bed.

On the other hand it would be wise to take an herb with a sedative or tranquilizing effect before bed. These include herbs such as Passionflower, Wild Lettuce, Kava Kava, Lavender Flower, Valerian Root or Chamomile. These herbs induce sound sleep and lucid and vivid dreaming.

If a person has high blood pressure, they would not want to take a cardio stimulant herb such as Yohimbe Bark because it would be counterproductive to the heart. Yohimbe would not be the problem, but would only exacerbate the problem. This must be understood. Many times Licorice Root and Yohimbe are misunderstood and are believed to increase high blood pressure. But in reality, these herbs do not impair a healthy heart.


Alkaloids

Some herbs have contra-indications and are said to be poisonous and contain poisonous alkaloids.

It is important to note that just because an herb contains a poisonous alkaloid doesn't make the entire plant poisonous. However, there are plants and even trees in the rainforest and jungles that are entirely poisonous. If a tree is white or white-grayish, it's poisonous.

On the other hand, a red-brownish tree is typically highly medicinal and therapeutic. The forest and jungle speak to us in many ways, including via the use of colors.

While some herbs may include or have a major alkaloid that is considered poisonous, the entire plant or tree should not be considered poisonous. A contra-indication does not make a plant poisonous.


Solutions

    Q: I just purchased the Fibroid Buster Tea, Moon Cycle Tea, and Female Health Tea. Should I be concerned with any of these teas interacting with medications, such as Spironolactone?

    A:

    Yes! Drugs and herbs don't mix. Consuming both, drugs, and herbs defeats the purpose of taking herbs. Herbs are for healing. Drugs are toxic and poisonous.

    Q: Is Dherbs.Com Herbs Safe To Take?

    A:

    Absolutely! It's like asking, is real food (i.e. fruits and vegetables) safe to eat? Herbs are noble foods in powdered or liquid form. They are 100% organic, digestible, and assemble by the human body (unlike harmful, man-made pharmaceutical drugs which toxify the human body). People should actually ask their doctors "are these drugs safe to take?" instead of asking about herbs being safe to take. It is drugs (legal drugs, O-T-C) that kill hundreds of thousands of people per year whereas 0% herbs are killing people per year.

    Q: I noticed a couple of your athletic formulas contain Yohimbe. I have read that it can increase blood pressure and heart rate. How much Yohimbe is contained in the energizer formula and is it safe for consumption if a person has elevated or high blood pressure?

    A:

    We don't use much Yohimbe in our products as it's a pretty potent herb. People who have been conditioned about Yohimbe causing blood pressure problems while experience blood pressure problems due to conditioning and thus should avoid yohimbe products until they recondition and reprogram their minds.

    Q: Many vitamins and minerals websites indicate that their products have been tested and actually contain what they claim to contain; what are your protocols on manufacturing? Are your herbs organically grown? Thank you.

    A:

    Organic/Wild-crafted Herbs? Dherbs.Com only utilizes organic and wild-crafted herbs in its formulas and compounds. Although organic herbs are always not available, we order our herbs in advance to make sure we keep our products full of 100% organic herbs as well as 100% wild-crafted herbs. At Dherbs.Com, we go the extra mile for our customers and we stay on top of our game to bring the customer the best product available! No other herbal company uses as many herbs as we use in our formulas nor does any other herbal company or business use the degree of rare and exotic herbs as we use in our formulas. At Dherbs.Com, without a doubt, you get the BEST and for LESS! Gelatin Capsules? Dherbs.Com only uses vegetarian (vegan) capsules made from 100% plant fiber as Dherbs.Com has a policy to not use animal or animal byproduct ingredients in the manufacturing of its products. Gelatin capsules are derived from animals (mostly pig) and are thus not vegan or even halal or kosher. Also, gelatin capsules do not fully dissolve in the stomach like vegetarian capsules. Most herbal companies use gelatin capsules because they are cheap, costing 2-3 times less than vegetarian capsules. Dherbs.Com does not let high prices or expenses stand in our way of bringing people the Best, the Safest, and the Soundest! Dherbs.Com is people first! Tablets? Dherbs.Com does not use tablets because tablets require the mixing of too many additives in order to make the tablet stick together or bind and come out a certain way, i.e. dense, smooth surface, etc. Capsules allow us at Dherbs.Com to give our customers 100% pure herbal ingredients held together in a 100% digestible vegetarian capsule for maximum absorbency in the body. Preservatives? Dherbs.Com uses absolutely no preservatives in any of its products as the only thing that needs to be preserved are “dead†things and herbs are not dead, but living (living foods), therefore that which is alive does not need to be preserved so Dherbs.Com does not and will not use preservatives in any of its formulas. Fillers? Many herbal companies use fillers in their formulas as a way to cut down on giving the customer 100% herbal content. Dherbs.Com is against this custom. Fillers may help the encapsulation process by making a formula more dense for encapsulation, but fillers have no nutritional content so when you add them to herbal compounds, they take away from the compound. Fillers help the encapsulation company and herbal company, but not the customer. Fillers water down the product! Dherbs.Com is against this process and custom. Binders? Dherbs.om does not use binders as we have no need for binders. Many herbal companies use binders to help certain ingredients bind together, but at Dherbs.Com, we use 100% herbal content and so our ingredients naturally bind together. Additives Dherbs.Com does not use any additives in any of its formulas. Additives water down the product and take away from the efficacy of a product that utilizes natural compounds. Additives help herbal companies save money by giving the customer less herb per capsule or tablet. Solvents? Dherbs.Com uses absolutely no chemical solvents in the use of its liquid herbal extracts or crystal elixirs. Our extracts are uniquely made via natural agitation (by human hand) and natural sunlight (solar energy) and our elixirs are also made by human hand and exposed to moon and sunlight. It takes us approximately two (2) weeks to produce a liquid extract compound because Nature requires time to produce what she produces. However, other herbal companies are like major fast food restaurants and need a quick supply of products for their standard of convenience and thus use harmful chemical solvents to quickly produce their herbal liquid extracts. At Dherbs.Com, though convenience is important to us, however, we won’t compromise the integrity of our products to help people get a quick fix and to make a quick buck. Patience is a requisite of Nature and Dherbs.Com is in tune with Nature. Dherbs.Com will NEVER use chemical solvents in the production of its herbal liquid extracts or crystal elixirs. Standardization? Dherbs.Com does not utilize standardization in any of its formulas. Standardization is an unnatural process whereby a standardized herb provides uniformity of a single plant chemical. A standardized extract delivers a quantified and measurable level of the targeted active ingredient (major alkaloid) in every serving and in which this active ingredient is considered by science to be the key ingredient responsible for the herbs health benefits. Other herbal companies trust man-made science, but Dherbs.Com trusts in and relies upon Nature. Other Ingredients? The phrase “other ingredients†is simply an umbrella term for “additives†and other herbal companies use other ingredients (i.e., magnesium stearate, microcrystalline cellulose, silica, rice powder, stearic acid, etc.) in their formulas to simply cut the volume of herbs in their formulas. Other ingredients take up space or room in the capsule or tablet and this allows the company to save money while giving their customers a watered down product. Are Dherbs.Com Herbs Safe To Take? Absolutely! It’s like asking, “is real food (i.e. fruits and vegetables) safe to eat? Herbs are noble foods in powdered or liquid form. They are 100% organic, digestible, and assimilable by the human body (unlike harmful, man-made pharmaceutical drugs which toxify the human body). People should actually ask their doctors “are these drugs safe to take?†instead of asking about herbs being safe to take. It is drugs (legal drugs, O-T-C) that kill hundreds of thousands of people per year whereas 0% herbs are killing people per year. Can You Take Other Dherbs.Com Products Together? Of course (unless you are performing one of our kits and regimens)! That’s like asking can you eat lettuce with tomatoes and carrots in a salad! If you are not performing one of our kits and regimens, i.e. Full Body Detox, Anti-Viral, or Weight Release, you can take our formulas together. You can drink our teas before or after taking our capsule formulas. It’s actually best to space out the formulas, but if you need to take everything together, you can. You have free will here and it will not hurt you or mess up the efficacy of the herbs. Not at all!

That BPA-Free Label Isn't As Safe As You Think

Back in 2008, bisphenol-A (BPA) got some really negative attention when the mainstream media started reporting on the various health problems associated with the industrial chemical. And with good reason: BPA has been linked with a slew of negative health outcomes including reproductive problems, obesity, diabetes, and cancer. Removing BPA from products like sippy cups, toys, and water bottles is undoubtedly a good thing, but then the question becomes, what did companies replace it with in order to call their products BPA-free?

Many of the chemicals that have replaced BPA haven’t been studied nearly as much. However, a paper published in the National Institute of Health journal Environmental Health Perspectives reported that almost all commercially available BPA-free plastics still leached estrogen and some leached synthetic estrogen more potent than what’s found in BPA. Estrogen that’s not produced by the body can impact estrogen levels and getting too much or too little can be problematic, especially in utero and early childhood. Elevated levels can increase a women’s risk for some types of breast cancer, for example.
