Some people believe that natural herbs is better than doctor's medicine. It has no side effects. You can also consume herbs while you are still under doctor's medication. What do you believe?

I have never used medication...I don't even use advil or any other headache medicines. I think that every modern medicine out there has side effects, something I never could understand. Why would something recommended to treat you have so many effects? Any ways, going natural is the way to go. If you know the herbs and its specific can be your own doctor.

They aren't necesarily better than prescription medication that you get from the Doctor. Also some natural herbal products can have side effects if taken without proper knowledge of what they will do and what they are for. Some herbal medicines will interact, and adversely too, with other medications. It is all about knowledge of the herbal properties of these medications as well as the adverse effects that they can have. If taken properly, then a person should be okay but with any medication, care should be taken.

Scientifically, less side effects. No is not accurate.
