Generally, if you take the herb as per the recommended dosage and/or as prescribed by an Ayurvedic practitioner, the herbs should be safe. If on medication do not use these herbs without consulting with an Ayurvedic practitioner. It is important to understand your dosha type as some certain herbs may have an adverse reaction for certain dosha types. However, in general Ayurvedic herbs are gentle, and we recommend using the wholefood herb as opposed to the extract, Ayurveda has traditionally administered herbs as a whole herb rather than extracts.

Understanding your dosha is also important as some herbs are heating and some are cooling, and these may also produce adverse reactions.
