A lot of people now days are wondering if all the chemicals in pharmacuticals are really good for you or is there a more natural way to go. Well, all medicine was originally derived from plants and then began to be synthesized as pure chemicals and compounds. But a lot of people still agree that drinking a cup of medicinal tea for a cold is better than popping pills for it. I have to agree it is certainly cheaper and certainly milder than pills from the doctor, but safety and dosage are always issues. The real question is, if you had a choice between a pill perscription and an herbal treatment that both promised the same results in different ways, which would you pick and why?

frankly, the only herbal things i'd get are hair products. i've tried herbal medicines. any pain does go away but they seem to come back with a vengeance. i've also read something like this and it was true for me. i believe medicines now are manufactured (of course with some of them still using plants as one or two of their components) for instant and ultimate relief .
