Doc, is herbal medicine effective?
Hello Andry, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Herbal medicine is a medicine derived from plants or plant extracts to maintain a healthy body and treat certain diseases. Even so, that does not mean herbal medicines have no side effects.
Herbal medicine has a different way of working with medical drugs in general. Consumption of herbal medicines is safe as long as the herbal medicines consumed are registered with BPOM. Based on research, so far the effectiveness of using herbal medicines has not been supported by strong and consistent evidence. This can be influenced by various factors such as medication adherence, disease conditions, and so on.
For that, it's a good idea before consuming certain herbal medicines that you consult your doctor first, especially if you are using medical drugs too.
