These herbs are so named because they are medicine and should be respected as such. God gave herbs to be used as medicine, so it is important to use wisdom in taking them. Each medicinal herb usually targets a specific gland, organ, or body system. They are stronger, which is why it is recommended to use lower dosages for short periods of time.
With medicinal herbs, it is important to start slow and increase gradually. Begin with 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon in food, drinks, smoothies, or tea, and then evaluate to see how the body is doing. Increase in small increments of 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon if the body is responding well until the desired response is achieved. It is recommended that these types of herbs be used at low dosages for a short period of time. For management of stress, hormone balance, or nutrition, focus on the adaptogenic and nutritive herbs.
