of herb reviews.
One of the reasons I began this site is because the medical
industry teaches to stop taking herbs or that they are dangerous.
This site collects and reviews the science about herbs
to verify which are scientifically proven to work safe.
Many reports state an herb will accelerate a drug like insulin,
making it work better.
Truth prevails every time, it may take a while to get some
to accept it, but eventually it will prevail. That is why
everything on this site will be reviews of proven science
with links so you can read and verify its truth for yourself.
medicine, food and even supplements
are not always about what is right,
but what makes the most profits.
dream and vision is to see the day modern
medicine and alternative medicine both
work together using what ever is proven
safest and best for our health, with a joint
method of treatment, without limitations
or motivations relating to money!
As I began my research the
following facts shocked and alarmed me. They are proven
truths verified by facts not hype or speculation.
herbs can be dangerous, if used in higher doses than recommended,
and if used without knowing when to use them and what they
can do. Herbs are medicine and must
be used wisely! Some people think because it is a
natural food it is automatically safe, that is not true.
Some herbs are poison or toxic at certain levels. Combining
herbs often makes the combination unsafe because they have
an accelerated synergy making the new whole much more effective
than individually, thus they may become too strong. Often
supplements are not properly evaluated for their effects
upon each other. Too many in the supplement business just
throw a bunch of herbs together without really understanding
their combined safety and effectiveness. Others make unsubstantiated
claims and if they refer to science reports they seldom
provide links that could verify that they are using the
report the right way. That is why every research report
on this site will have a hyperlink so you can see it for
yes they can conflict with some drugs. Probably not from
what the doctors would have us believe, but because often
they are the same or similar to the drug and taking an herb
will increase the amount of medicine we are getting to an
if not all drugs are derived from an herb, or its chemistry
is the base foundation for the drug.
are not the best treatment in every case, sometimes a pharmaceutical
drug is better, and even life saving. For example it would
be absolutely foolish for an insulin dependent diabetic
to stop taking insulin because an herb is reported to treat
diabetes. Wisdom and prudence is necessary and what ever
is safest and best should be the rule to make any health
decision. This means one must seek the truth not hype, speculation,
experimentation or fantastic marketing claims. Likewise
it would be foolish to consult an energy healer to repair
a broken leg. Doctors are highly educated with years of
training and although they may not accept herbs the way
they ought to, they are usually well intentioned and sincere.
Likewise they have access to the most modern testing and
evaluation equipment available.
companies cannot patent an herb because the U.S. patent
laws forbid patenting a natural food or herb.
- The drug companies look for research all over
the world about natural herbs that have medicinal
- Research labs all over the world are studying
the traditional history about herbs then taking
them to their labs and testing them with scientific
- They then write detailed reports that they try
to sell to pharmaceutical companies
- The drug company that buys the report and the
lab do not share their findings with other drug
companies or other labs in order to protect their
- This means that if a lab in China studying
Alzheimer's finds a cure for diabetes, they
are not going to share it with a lab that is
studying diabetes. Nor is the lab studying diabetes
and finds a cure for Alzheimer's going to share
it with another lab.
- The tragic result is that there is new research
taking place that if it were combined in one
place could provide an acceleration of the cures
for many diseases.
- It is the mission of herb-discovery to
provide one place for research categorized
by disease and other topics.
- To our knowledge no other web site is
doing this, there are hundreds using research
to market or educate, often without letting
readers see the source of the research.
- None are collecting research into one
site like we are doing.
result is, that we are finding correlating
reports which provide information not
- The pub med site contains much of the
sources for our reports and has a great
database of research, however it is not
categorized by disease topics or specifically
organized, nor is it using the various reports
to compare and combine knowledge that could
provide greater cures.
- It costs the U.S. drug companies up to ten million
dollars to get a drug approved by the FDA.
- This along with their not sharing research
with other labs means that they hurry to find
and get their drug on the market before their
- They then market it with great vigor to recoup
- If the drug is discovered to have serious
side effects they are unlikely to remove it
from the market to protect their profits.
- The science of producing a patented pharmaceutical
drug means that they break down all the components
within an herb, (there may be hundreds of chemical
components) then they remove a few natural compounds
and add some new compounds from a foreign source.
Then they can claim it as a new compound that is
- It does not take a rocket scientist to realize
that when you take a natural food or herb and
play with its chemistry that it has the potential
to become less safe, with less potential to
heal than the original natural form.
- All one has to do is listen to any modern
drug T. V. commercial or read one in a magazine,
and see all the disclaimers about how it may
do this or that harm to the body, to realize
drugs are not always as safe as the source herb.
- Lab science research reports prove the wonderful
help they will do in their natural form often
reporting no side effects were found in their
testing. Yet the altered new drug derived from
the herb reports numerous side effects.
- Note; one aspect of
new lab research are discoveries of extracting
useful components from a food or herb into a
new man made natural compound. Among these new
compounds are some new super foods that retain
the natural healing powers of the original item,
while eliminating any negative effects of the
original food or herb.
- Drug companies marketing methods:
- They provide millions of dollars to schools
that teach doctors, including grants to doctors
to write medical text books. This allows them
to control the medical schools and the information
taught to new doctors.
- Along with the AMA, FDA and FTC they persecute
any clinic, doctor or alternative practitioner
or manufacturer as much as they can to prevent
and stop them from using herbal treatments that
compete with them.
- They shut down many clinics who use herbal
treatments telling us that they were practicing
medicine not approved by the FDA.
- The FDA did not have authority to approve
an herb until the recent Hatch sponsored
bill that now gives them some authority.
- Since neither the AMA or the FDA has the
power to shut down a clinic they contact
the FTC stating the clinic is doing false
advertising. The FTC shuts down the clinic,
stating they are practicing medicine not
approved by the FDA even though the FDA
did not have the power to approve the natural
herbs or treatments in the first place.
- They spend millions paying off our elected
congress members through legal and possibly
illegal lobbying tactics.
- They pay AMA and medical doctors to attend
seminars to educate them with the newest drugs
and pharmaceutical slanted education. This can
include junkets (vacations to exotic places)
where just enough education is provided to claim
a legal status.
- Another terrible device they use is to testify
and lobby to congress to ban certain herbs from
the market place. This was done for ephedrine.
Ephedrine was being over prescribed and over
dosed by the weight loss industry with some
dangerous and harmful results. There are two
factors to consider with this ban.
- Ephedrine was a huge competitor to pharmaceutical
weight loss drugs and affecting their profits.
- Ephedrine caused a fraction of the harm
Tylenol has and still is doing and it is
not being regulated.
- This proves that Congress sanctions
the attacks on herbs that are competition
to drug companies while nothing is done
to protect the public from drugs that
Food additives with excito-toxins
in them are on the safe foods list of the FDA
even though there is undisputed chemical proof
that they cause obesity, oxidative stress and
mutated hormone production.
- The additives often are artificial flavoring
and their regulation would cost the food industry
millions of dollars.
- Yet our health is sacrificed and Congress
and the government even the FTC will not regulate
this harm nor stop the false advertising by
food labels claiming no MSG added. Yet they
will pounce on any herb clinic without just
- I no longer support or contribute to research
- The American Diabetes foundations monthly
magazine is reported to be paid for entirely
by a drug company, this controls the Diabetes
Foundation to keep them quiet about herbal research.
- Each research foundation obscures herb research
in favor of pharmaceutical drugs. For example
if you look hard enough you will find some herb
information on the American Diabetes Foundations
web site, yet they never promote it even if
it is better than drugs.
- Cancer research foundations focus only on
drugs even though there are lab reports reporting
cancer cures with herbs. Perdue University fifteen
years ago reported an herbal prostate cancer
cure ten million times better than chemo. It
has been verified by other labs, yet no one
in the medical industry will tell their patients
about it, and research labs continue to ask
us to send them money to find cures that are
already proven and that they are ignoring.
- Research foundations would go out of business
if they reported present proven herbal cures.
In other words if they reported existing proven
herbal cures they would no longer have a job.
is horrible, but not fictitious and truth will
is no wonder when I say modern medicine is about
profits not cures,
and much of the supplement industry is not any
