The other night I had two friends at the house for a gathering. One is an herbalist and the other is some sort of doctor, I'm not sure of his specific job title. However that is not important. These two began to bicker about medical techniques. In your opinion are herbs a better way to treat something or is normal medicine better. I do have a few other questions which I will list below. Is it true that it is impossible for your body to build up immunity to herbs like it can with medicine? I've heard that most medicines treat the symptom but not the cause, herbs work the opposite way. Is this true? Is it more dangerous to use herbs or chemicals to treat something?
