This information is intended as an introduction to edible & medicinal plants and how they can be used. I am not a medical professional and I cannot prescribe what edible and/or medicinal plants are right for you. I cannot answer medical questions so please do not ask me to tell you which edible plants to consume, eat, drink, use, etc.; to tell you which medicinal plants to consume, eat, drink, use, etc.; to prescribe herbal cures; to provide medical treatment; and/or to guess what is wrong with you.


If you use edible & medicinal plants, then please do so responsibly. It is important to know whether the edible plant can be eaten raw or cooked; which parts of the plant can and cannot be eaten; when can the plant be eaten (young, mature, old, spring, fall, summer, winter, etc.); etc. Consult your doctor about your health conditions and use of medicinal plant supplements (medical herbs). Medicinal plants (medical herbs) may be harmful if taken for the wrong conditions, used in excessive amounts, combined with prescription drugs or alcohol, and/or used by persons who don't know what they are doing. Just because a medicinal plant (medical herb) is natural it does not mean it is safe! There are herbs that are poisonous such as Poison Hemlock, Jimson weed, and many more. {This disclaimer is based on the Alternative Nature Online Herbal Web site's Disclaimer; HybridRastaMama.com Web site Disclaimer; and Coconut Oil Tips Web site Disclaimer}.
