No Recovery, You Owe Us Nothing
Americans spend $34 million on herbal remedies every year, despite only one-third of the treatments having been scientifically tested. Many claims made by supplement companies are bogus and cost patients’ money for products that do not work. Worse, some have detrimental health effects. Patients seeking a more natural form of healing may instead ingest harmful chemicals of unknown origin or that have never been tested for safety.

That a medicine is “natural” does not mean “weak” or “safe.” The most powerful drugs are derived from nature. Scientists isolate certain components and develop chemical formulations based upon natural forms of the herbal substances.
One of the main differences between a natural supplement and a pharmaceutical is the level of regulation. Pharmaceutical manufacturers must undergo an approval process under U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations to market and sell their drugs in the United States. The FDA may also recall drugs deemed unsafe or mandate use of black box warnings to alert consumers about potential health risks associated with the pharmaceutical. No such government oversight is given to natural supplements.
Supplement manufacturers have a duty to only advertise honest information about their products. Attempts to mislead the consumer are false advertising and are illegal in the United States. Yet, the deception is usually not exposed unless patients suffer fatalities or serious injuries.

Pharmaceuticals can interact with herbal medications to cause severe reactions. Your doctor and hospital have a duty to advise you about risks of interactions with herbal supplements and other medications. The herbal company also warns you about dangerous drug interactions.
