Basic Wisdom

From the Introduction to Medicinal Plants of the Mountain West by Michael Moore:

1. Be sure of the plant you are picking.
2. If the herb makes you sick, take less or throw it away.
3. If it doesn’t work, use more or forget it entirely.
4. Trust your own judgement above all.
5. That which stimulates can irritate; that which helps can hurt.
6. If you don’t get better or get worse quickly, call your doctor.
