Side Effects of Some Herbs

SomSome herbs may have side effects.  The most commonly abused herb is ephedra (ma huang). When used improperly it can cause death. The ingredient of this herb is being used in many western drugs.  Maca, used by the Inca Indians of Peru as an energy booster and aphrodisiac, being sold in health food stores in the U.S., is creating controversy. Ginseng varies in quality. Low quality ginseng is not effective. To be sure of getting good quality ginseng, buy the real roots-- not powder or capsules; but you must know how to distinguishComplementary and Alternative Healing good quality roots from inferior ones.   A Chinese herb, aristolochia deliblis  (ma dou ling) can be toxic in incorrect long term usage as a weight control herb. This herb was mistaken as aristolochia fangchi (fang ji) which has a different Chinese name and is written with different characters. The confusion in these two herbs created health problems and deaths in Europe because a western drug manufacturer used aristolochia deliblis for aristolochia fangchi by mistake. When prescribing Chinese herbs, Chinese  characters should be used to avoid misunderstanding.  In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), neither of these herbs is used in weight control.
