First off, this is a no-judgment zone so yes, it’s imperative that you share any and all drugs that you have taken including prescription, over-the-counter (OTC). herbal remedies, and yes – illegal substances too. Since we do make herbal and supplement recommendations, we need to know if anything you are currently taken could cause an adverse interaction with our suggestions.
This is also true as it relates to diagnosed diseases and illnesses because some herbs, nutrients, and drugs can be contraindicative to one another. As a precaution, we actively refer to the latest editions of the following titles: AHPA’s Botanical Safety Handbook and Herb, Nutrient, and Drug Interactions by Mitchell B. Stargrove and others, along with seeking advice from private holistic collegiate groups. When a case is beyond our scope, we will always refer a client to seek out a licensed medical professional or refer them to a more experienced holistic practitioner.
