A lot of people are sceptical about using alternative remedies and think that they do not work, but nowadays a lot of them are now very affective. Most herbal remedies are listed under the Governments Traditional Herbal Registration Scheme, this means they have the same quality and safety standard as conventional medicines such as paracetamol.
This proves that the product has at least thirty years worth of evidence to prove that it is safe and its use has been monitored carefully as a traditional remedy. Once it has been registered it can be sold legally and information can be put on packaging telling you how it can benefit your health, so that it is easier to the make the right selection for your ailment. There is a nine digit registration number on the packaging which starts with the letters THR, this the proof that the product is registered, so if you look for the letters I mentioned you will be able to check this information yourself. A lot of people myself included combine herbal medicine alongside conventional medicine quite effectively with good results. I t is always important to check with your doctor or a pharmacist that it is safe to combine these medicines as a precaution.
