CONSIDER THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN HERBAL REMEDIES AND DRUGS

There are some vital differences between herbal remedies and drugs.   
Herbal Medicines                                 Conventional Drugs              
Are based on entire, whole plant       Based on isolated chemicals
Are made from natural substances    May be synthetic
Are created from the sun's energy     Unrelated to Nature's Cycle
Have few if any side effects                 Always Have Side Effects
Work slowly and subtly                        Work dramatically 
Enhance vitality                                     Deplete  vitality

                                   As Always, To Your Health!
