ebc, thank you for your reply, I too, am well aware that herbs have side effects and you need to know what you are doing when you take them.
I guess in my case I find that too many modern day western drugs are too broad range and end up treating more than needed and causing more problems. (From experience)
I am looking for a forum of friendly people that share their experiences and knowledge, but still it is up to the person to use their judgement as to what is right for them. In other words you still need to do your own homework.
