Seriously,you can't find any medicine safer than herbal as long as you follow doctor's instructions.

hello, Actually, drinking a plants as a medicine is safe as long as you know its limitations and its functions. alright? but they said that you must be careful of what plants you are drinking because sometimes you are just mistaken that this plant is for the cure of your sickness. You must study first or search first its ability.

If a person knows what they are doing yes- in fact, they are better than using most modern medicine.

yes, but you have to take into account what types of medicines you are taking that have been perscribed by your doctor as they could cause interaction between the herbal and the other one. check with your doctor and pharmasist first.
