Mixing of herbs you should/should not take together.

cmrn1234December 25, 2011

I was just wondering if there is any literature or website that you guys know about to find out whether some herbs should not be taken at the same time as others. I am new to this whole herb thing and am looking at starting to take Korean ginseng and some burdock root. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

You may want to try the Herbalism forum for this kind of information. This forum is more concentrated on the growing of herbs ( usually for culinary purposes but not solely) rather than medicinal uses.

Hopefully, one of the medicinal experts here will jump in, but you should try the other forum, too.

It's not just various herbs that shouldn't mix. Herbs can interact with other medications and be contraindicated (not recommended) in combination with some medical conditions.

I would suggest seeking assistance from a health care professional - regardless of whether it is a regular MD, naturopath, herbalist, or what have to help you get started using herbs medicinally - especially if it is for a particular condition. I believe people can and should take charge of their own body, health, and what treatments they use - BUT that requires a person to learn and become educated on their health and how to maintain it.

And yes, the focus of this forum is the growing of herbs of all sorts with the occasional usage thrown in. The Herbalism forum is really targeted on the medicinal use of herbs but it can be rather contentious and is not always the most helpful place.
