Answer by Gary Y
Well, just because something has existed for thousands of years, it doesn’t mean it works. And very few herbs have been actually proved scientifically to be effective; and more importantly, safe. Science actually investigates many promising crude drugs of plant origin, but typically they will isolate the active chemical compounds, and after much testing refine or synthesise them into pure, consistent medicines that then fall under tight regulatory controls.

Herbal drugs are problematic as they are unstandardised; the quality and strength is subject to seasonal and other variations, thus they are untested and uncontrolled. Safety, risks, side effects and interactions are unknown, they are typically handed out by people with little or no medical training, and many have been found to be contaminated with all sorts of toxins including heavy metals.

In fact, Ayurvedic can contain very dangerous quantities of heavy metals, including lead, mercury, thallium and arsenic; not just as contaminants, they are added deliberately in order to supposedly return the body to health by ‘rebalancing’ essential minerals.

From Wikipedia (always read the sources):

“Safety (Ayurvedic)
Rasa shastra, the practice of adding metals, minerals or gems to herbs, is a source of toxic heavy metals such as lead, mercury and arsenic.[77] Adverse reactions to herbs due to their pharmacology are described in traditional ayurvedic texts, but ayurvedic practitioners are reluctant to admit that herbs could be toxic and the reliable information on herbal toxicity is not readily available.[78]

A 2008 study of more than 230 products found that approximately 20% of remedies (and 40% of rasa shastra medicines) purchased over the Internet from both US and Indian suppliers contained lead, mercury or arsenic.[77][80][81]”

Last year, the New South Wales (Australia) government issued a safety warning for Ayurvedic, after a man died from lead poisoning:
“According to the Public Health Unit Director of Sydney South West Area Health Service, Dr Stephen Conaty, testing of a sample of the Ayurvedic medicine showed that it contained high levels of mercury, arsenic and especially high levels of lead. The medicine contained 2.3% lead by weight.”

Perhaps you need to rethink this idea of yours?

Herbs & Fertility: It’s a Shame for you to not Get Pregnant When People Have Been Curing Infertility With Herbal Remedies

Herbs & Fertility: It’s a Shame for you to not Get Pregnant When People Have Been Curing Infertility With Herbal Remedies

People have been using herbs to treat just about any type of problem for thousands of years. Traditional medicine like the traditional Chinese medicine or the Native American medicine, understood and made good use of effective herbal tonics to cure or improve a range of sicknesses, which includes infertility.

Herbs are a wonderful choice to heal infertility because they contain only natural substances, eradicating the necessity to fill your body with risky unnatural hormones and chemicals. Herbal fertility tonics naturally balance your body’s energy by promoting the creation of hormones involved in reproduction, thus increasing sexual performance and nullifying risky toxins that lead to a diminished reproductive potency.

What Can Be Used To Treat Infertility?

Black Cohosh: A herb that is widely used by the native Americans and the Chinese. It has a phytoestrogenic effect on the female body, naturally stimulating the ovulation process without the damaging effects of estrogen injections.

Chasteberry: A natural hormonal balancer that aids the pituitary gland to function properly. The pituitary gland regulates the ovulation process and maintains a healthy hormonal level within the body.

Siberian Ginseng: This herb is known as a effective aphrodisiac. It promotes sexual function and improves overall wellness. It has been used for ages by the Chinese for it’s regulatory effect on the menstrual cycle.

Horny Goat Weed (Epimedium grandiflorum): Vastly used in both eastern and western medicines, this herb improves male potency and acts as an aphrodisiac. It also enhances a man’s sperm quantity and quality.

Centella Asiatica (Gotu Cola): This herb is used to enhance male fertility, it helps maintaining healthy bloods vessels, as well as connective tissue, including the sperm-producing seminiferous tubules. Herbal fertility tonics that contain this herb enable men to maintain better, more powerful erections and increasing their sexual desire.

How To Spot Scams and Dangerous Ingredients

There are a lot of infertility treatments but unfortunately many of them are straight out scams designed to exploit your dream to have a baby. Many products do work, but have drastically damaging side effects that may damage your health. The key is to select products that contain only natural ingredients that are not mixed with artificial things like preservatives, colorings or other unnatural ingredients.

Safe and Effective Herbal Tonic to Treat Infertility

A natural herbal fertility tonic should not contain any animal by-products as they decrease the effectiveness of the herbs and add harmful animal substances into your system. Additionally, the company behind the product should be established one with a solid track record of developing superb herbal treatments. When in doubt, take a sample of the herbal tonic to your doctor to confirm that it is appropriate for your body.
