DO HERBS REALLY WORK ?

They feed, regulate, and cleanse the body naturally. They give the body raw materials it needs to do its own healing work. They do not build up in the body or produce harmful side effects like synthetic drugs and supplements. They are the key to improving your health. The information in this flyer has been taken from records of the historical uses of herbs as found in: Health Handbook &Today's Herbal Health (Tenney); The How-to Herb Book (Keith & Gordon); Nutritional Herbology Volumes 1 & 2 (Pederson); and Historical Uses of Herbs (Bullock).

"The ultimate responsibility for your health rests on your shoulders. So read and study about your problem as much as you can.  Also, if you have serious problems you should consult a licensed, professional healthcare provider."
