In many cases you can find them in the pharmacy in the form of ready-made capsules, for which the dosage and intake are prescribed by a doctor or alternative practitioner. However, if you still use the medicinal plants, you must not exceed the recommended and specified amounts under any circumstances.

Many plants look harmless, but can cause unpleasant side effects. The essential oils contained in the plants can cause headaches, nausea or diarrhea and are not recommended for young children, nursing mothers or pregnant women. One thing should be said at the end: neither food nor herbs can have a lasting effect without changing your lifestyle. The problem that has arisen is a good reason to consider what is wrong in everyday life and how it can be changed. Tension and stress in moderation are healthy, but when the stress becomes too high and systematic, many of the body’s systems become unbalanced.
