There are many herbal medicines that are safe to use but it is for an external medication only. if you intake it it may cause damage to the fetus but there are some advises from the elders that to intake the herbal medicine is safer to intake than the medicine which is not herbal.

herbal medicines are popular at this time because of the high cost of living, and to think that this herbal can be found in our kitchen, in our home garden. but the question is, are this safe to use for the pregnant woman? for me it is safe to use because i've been used it already as a matter of fact it doesn't show a side effects.


hervie - September 10

my question is, can this herbal medicine you are talking is very much safe to take with? can you give a guarantee for this? what if something may happen?
i am not in favor to use herbal medicines especially in my case at this moment that i am pregnant.

I had a cough and a mild fever during my first trimester. Since i cannot take medicinal tablet or other supplement, I tried herbal plants for 3 days and it's very effective. My cough and fever were all gone and I had a wonderful feeling afterwards.
