Herbs vs. Pharmaceutical Drugs

Over-the counter pharmaceutical drugs and doctor-physician prescribed medicines kill over one million Americans annually. http://dherbs.com/uploads/news/id4702/Fotolia_63268419_Subscription_Monthly_M_thumb.jpg
Compared to pharmaceutical drugs, herbs are safer and more digestible, effective and economical.

As an effective treatment for various health conditions, herbs are great alternatives to pharmaceutical drugs. Unlike pharmaceutical drugs, herbs promote an improvement in overall health when combined with a raw-vegan diet and regular exercise.


Safety

Deaths

Safety is the most critical area of review amongst herbs and drugs. Zero deaths have been reported due to the consumption of herbs. Over-the counter pharmaceutical drugs and doctor-physician prescribed medicines kill approximately one million Americans annually.

Pharmaceutical drug consumption plays a major role in iatrogenics, doctor-physician induced death due to drugs and surgery.

When we consider how many deaths are due to over-the counter and pharmacist/doctor-prescribed pharmaceutical drugs it is ridiculous to try to compare pharmaceutical drugs to natural herbs.

Poisons

Pharmaceutical drugs are harmful because they are made from inorganic compounds that the human body cannot properly absorb or digest. Pharmaceutical drugs lack intelligence and they cannot communicate with the cells of the body. They actually interrupt the cellular communication of the body and are detrimental to people's health.

Pharmaceutical drugs temporarily relieve pain but do not help improve overall health. Anytime a symptom is masked, the body generates more of a disturbance, throwing the body off balance.

Pharmaceutical pills are poisonous which is why the user is instructed to take them in restricted dosages.

Pharmaceutical drugs are made from alkaline substances that are synthetic in nature. Once inside the body, they cause the body to become acidic.

We must remember that the human body is organic and based with carbon and copper. Natural herbs are also organic, carbon and copper-based, and electrical and therefore are 100% compatible with the human organism. The same thing is not true about pharmaceutical drugs.

When an inorganic substance is placed in the human body, the human body becomes physically polluted. The natural vibration of the body becomes altered putting the body at risk of developing a disease.

Herbs that are commonly used are not harmful to the human body. Unlike drugs, herbs can find their way out of the body. Pharmaceutical drugs typically end up lodging themselves in the tissues, creating the need to detoxify the body with an emphasis on tissue cleansing.

While pharmaceutical drugs have many adverse side effects or reactions, natural herbs only have beneficial side effects or reactions.


Digestion

Because pharmaceutical drugs are inorganic and are comprised of oxidic compounds, the human body cannot digest them. And what the body cannot digest, it cannot absorb the nutrients.

More than fifty percent of the drugs people consume are eliminated from the urinary tract via urination while the rest stay lodged in the tissues.

With herbs, the body can easily digest and absorb them, so there is a healing component. Since herbs are food, there is no required dosage.


Effectiveness

A drug cannot heal the human body. A drug can only mask a symptom, but the symptom is not the cause of the disease, it is the effect of the disease. Herbs target the cause of a disease, therefore relieving the symptoms of a disease.

At first, drug companies isolated the major alkaloid from a plant and use it in their drug. The major alkaloid is what gives an herb its major property or function.

Origins

Originally, all of the drugs and their major alkaloids came from herbs. Aspirin was derived from Aspirae or Meadowsweet. Birth Control was derived from Dioscegenin or Wild Yam Root. Morphine was derived from Poppy. Valium was derived Valerian Root. Cocaine was derived from Coca leaf. Codeine was derived from Wild Cherry Bark. Quinine was derived from Magnolia Bark and Dogwood. Menthol was derived from Eucalyptus and Peppermint.

The English word "drug" derives from the root word "drogue", an Old French word meaning "dried plant". So truthfully speaking, the original drug was an herb.


Cost

Herbs are far cheaper and also more readily available than the chemicals used to make pharmaceutical drugs. Plants grow all over the Earth. The knowledge of what is the proper herb for a specific ailment is important when determining how and when to take it.

Without medical insurance, most people would not be able to afford their prescription drugs.


Solutions

Pharmaceutical drugs are no comparison to natural herbs. Herbs are safer, more effective and cheaper than drugs.

    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 have been dealing with diabetes for over twenty years. I have been on dialysis for almost three years, am a bilateral amputee, and have retinopathy and cardiovascular problems. I don't eat many carbs and take only ten units of Lantus per day. Blood sugars run good, last A1C was 5.6. I don't know what I can take because of the strict renal diet I am on. That's what has me stumped. Can you help?

    A:

    Sir, drugs and herbs don't mix! Sounds like you're on a strict drug-based regimen. You'd have to consider giving up your meds if you go the herbal route. Read our article HERBS VS. PHARMACEUTICAL DRUGS for more clarity of what I'm saying to you here. Regardless of your condition, our herbs would greatly help you.

    Q: I am afraid of herbal products. Are these products tested for safety and if so what method of testing was used?

    A:

    Funny how some people are afraid of herbs but not afraid of pharmaceutical drugs which will kill 1 million people per year: "Causalities and fatalities researched from literature, government reports and expert databases indicate that approximately zero (0,000%) cases are due to the use of complementary health products, whereas 5,176% are due to properly prescribed and used drugs. It seems that herbs may, even be safer than food, because 0,24% deaths are the result of food eaten." Our herbs are not tested by government (who test drugs that still kill people). I say don't be afraid to herbs, Beloved, and trust God (Psalms 104:14; Revelation 22:2, and Ezekiel 47:12). Herbs are food and will help you! Have faith!

    Q: First I must say I'm excited about your products after having read through your site extensively I intend to purchase both the Detox and the Anti Viral formula but have a question. I'm certain the answer is no but I must ask. In my job I'm subjected to random drug tests and I just wanted to make sure there weren't any herbs in these products that would cause a false positive.

    A:

    Always go with (trust) your gut!

    Herbs are not drugs no more than fruits and vegetables are drugs and do NOT appear in drug tests. In fact, they remove LEGAL drug residue from the body.

    Most people forget there are LEGAL Drugs and ILLEGAL drugs. Legal drugs (over-the-counter medication) are more harmful and fatal than illegal drugs and kill nearly 500,000 people per year. Aspirin kills 25,000 people per years, more than crack cocaine, marijuana, and heroin combined in 10 years, now where's the War on Aspirin at?????? LOL!

    Our herbs are 100% safe, sane, economical, and effective!

    Q: Hey herbalist, so I have been doing a lot of research on caffeine, and the benefits and harms of it. I am looking for some added information about the differences between the caffeine found naturally in coffee or tea, and the kind found in pure caffeine pills. I have heard that the pills are much more harmful, but have not been able to find proof of why. With the exception of "its made in a lab, therefore it must be worse". If you could shed some light on the matter, I would greatly appreciate it! Just one more question. I have read that caffeine blocks the re-uptake of glutamate. This can cause glutamate toxicity (resulting in dead brain cells), but I am skeptical as to how often this occurs. Will that happen if one takes just 200-mg of caffeine? Is it for the chronic caffeine users who drink 6 cups of coffee a day for 10 years? Thanks so much for your time and effort! looking forward to some knowledge!

    A:

    Nature does not make caffeine or any substance in mono-structured form, including caffeine. Caffeine consumed by itself is harmful (a la caffeine pills -- nature does not produce caffeine pills). Caffeine pills are INORGANIC and thus not absorbed by the body (the cells). Bio-caffeiene from plant sources is ORGANIC and thus absorbable. Organic substances can be absorbed through the cells. Inorganic substances cannot. Inorganic caffeine blocks reuptake of glutamate, and that's another reason why synthetic caffeine is harmful. Organic caffeine does not block reuptake of glutamate.

    Q: I am 4 1/2 months pregnant and have stopped taking prenatal vitamins due to my ignorance and fear! I have both your pre-natal and over the counter vitamins of which I stopped taking. I took the vitamins (as instructed) to my dr. to look at during my visit. He told me to stop taking your vitamins and continue with the store bought. I did research on each ingredient and the only one that scares me is the horsetail. I am what they consider a high-risk pregnancy so I am trying to do my best to stay healthy. Please advise.

    A:

    FEAR AND IGNORANCE IS A BAD COMBINATION. THEY CANNOT HELP YOU IN ANY WAY. THAT'S UNFORTUNATE. GOD ORDAINED THE HERBS FOR THE SERVICE OF MAN (PSALM 104:14), TO BE USED FOR MEDICINE (EZEKIEL 47:12) AND FOR THE HEALING OF THE NATIONS (REVELATION 22:2). GOD DID NOT ORDAIN MAN-MADE DRUGS, BUT YET IN STILL PEOPLE TAKE THEM. STRANGE INDEED! TYPICAL! YOU CAN'T FAULT THE DOCTOR FOR TELLING YOU TO TAKE THE POISONOUS PRE-NATALS. THAT'S WHAT DOCTORS ARE TRAINED TO DO. DOCTORS DO NOT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT NUTRITION AND DIET, ONLY PRESCRIPTION DRUGS AND SURGERY. WHAT IS IT IN A PLANT THAT CAN SCARE YOU? IT'S A PLANT AND CAN DO NO HARM. WOW! IF YOU BELIEVE IT, THEN GUESS WHAT, YOU ARE? YOU HAVE CHOSEN TO BELIEVE AND THUS ARE A HIGH RISK PREGNANCY. WHAT BENEFIT DO YOU GET FROM BEING A HIGH RISK PREGNANCY? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! BUT IT'S YOUR RIGHT TO BELIEVE IN WHAT YOU WILL UNDER FREE WILL. ADVISE YOU? OUR WHOLE WEBSITE ADVISES YOU ON WHAT'S THE TRUTH AND WHAT SHOULD BE DONE. START READING SOME OF OUR ARTICLES. KNOWLEDGE IS POWER! IF THE PRE-NATALS ARE NOT FROM PLANTS, YOU CANNOT ASSIMILATE THEM INTO YOUR BODY AND THUS THE BABY IS NOT GETTING ANY NOURISHMENT WHATSOEVER. THE BABY'S LIVER IS BEING TAXED WITH THESE HARMFUL DRUGS RECOMMENDED BY A DOCTOR. DO THE THING YOU FEAR AND THE FEAR WILL GO AWAY! TRUST IN GOD AND DO WHAT'S BEST FOR YOUR BABY. DON'T MAKE DECISIONS OUT OF FEAR, BUT OUT OF LOVE (FOR YOUR BABY), WHICH EQUATES TO TRUTH!
