Herbs may be harmful if taken for or under the wrong conditions, used in excessive amounts, combined with prescription drugs or alcohol. Just because an herbal remedy is natural, does not guaranty that it is safe. There are herbs that are hazardous or that may interfere with medications. In the event the reader of this volume uses the information without the approval of a health care provider, he/she is prescribing for himself/herself and assuming full responsibility for it. This is his/her right to do so, but Merkaba assumes no responsibility for his/her actions.
