How to tell herbal medicines from home remedies

A few minutes on your smartphone and you might just discover you’re using the wrong kind of herbal medicine, thanks to the way you’re presented with product labels and packaging. 

There are many kinds of herbal medicines available in the United States, including some that are safe for human consumption. 

But they’re often marketed as herbal supplements or dietary supplements, not the herbal form in which they were made. 

For example, herbal supplements are often marketed to those who have been diagnosed with a disease that affects their ability to metabolize nutrients. 

Some herbal supplements contain extracts of the plant Cannabis sativa that are also considered to be safe for humans to use. 

Another kind of product that can be a safe alternative to a traditional herbal medicine is a homeopathic remedy. 

Homeopathy is the treatment of a remedy with a small amount of liquid that is then administered as an infusion. 

Although the homeopathic treatment can be beneficial in some cases, it can also cause serious health risks. 

The homeopathic remedies used by homeopaths in the U.S. are generally safe for most people, but they do not provide the same benefit as a traditional remedy.

So you’ll often find that herbal medicines in your home are not safe to use, either. 

How to spot a homeopathy product for sale The homeopathic products on your phone will usually come with an information label, such as a prescription, product description or ingredients list. 

A label on a home remedy may also state the name of the manufacturer, or the manufacturer’s site where the remedy is available. 

In some cases it may also contain a summary of the ingredients, including their concentrations, duration of action, and the most commonly used types. 

You may also be able to determine the brand name of a product by using its name on the label or in the ingredients list, and its common abbreviation. 

Many herbal products are marketed as dietary supplements and contain an active ingredient, usually an herbal extract, but the active ingredient is typically either a compound or an alkaloid that is not recognized by the FDA as a safe, effective ingredient for humans. 

If a product’s active ingredient list says “homeopathic”, you can be sure it’s a homeopath’s remedy.

Homeopathic remedies are available in many different types and sizes. 

Each product label in the marketplace will tell you what kind of active ingredient it contains, as well as the active ingredients that are included in each serving. 

An example of a home product’s ingredient list: Eggplant extract: 1g eggplant extract, 2g caffeine, 1.5g vitamin C, 1g vitamin A (vitamin B6) Eating well: 2g fruit and vegetable broth, 1 tsp.

vitamin B-6 supplement Dried fruit: 1/4 tsp.

baking powder, 1/2 tsp.

sea salt Vitamin B12: 3g zinc, 1mg calcium, 1-2g iron, 1,5g potassium, 3,5mg copper Food coloring: 1,2 tsp sodium benzoate, 1% bromelain, 2% red color Potassium chloride: 1% potassium chloride, 1 oz. citric acid, 1%, 1% citric vinegar, 1 cup water, 1 tbsp.

honey Lanolin: 1 tsp of citric acids, 1 packet of L-citrulline powder Sugar: 1 tbsp sugar, 1 egg white, 1 tablespoon honey, 1 flax egg Sodium chloride: 0.5% sodium chloride, 2-3 drops of lactic acid, 2 tsp of baking soda Alcohol: 1 oz of bourbon, 1 ounce of gin, 1 pint of brandy Salt: 1 tablespoon of sea salt, 1 clove of garlic, 1 pinch of dried parsley The ingredients list on your home remedy should include the type of product you’re buying, the amount of active ingredients, and what it contains. 

When you buy a home herbal product, you’ll find it listed on the ingredient list, alongside the product’s common name. 

That common name will tell other homeopath customers where to find the ingredients they need to use the product. 

It will also tell other customers what kind and amount of product is in the home remedy, as long as it’s labeled as a home-made product.
