Imported Herbal Remedies from Asia Contain Fatal Drugs
According to the investigations conducted by the General of Health Debbie Chin herbal products imported from Asia tested positive for containing harmful drugs in erectile dysfunction and weight loss prescription medicines.

After routine investigations Medsafe identified five remedies that contained drugs which could be fatal to some individuals. Some contained sildenafil, the erectile dysfunction drug which could also interfere with some heart medications.

Medicines which are used to treat obese patients contained sibutramine which also increased blood pressure and heart rate in some people. It should be strictly avoided by patients with glaucoma, mental illness and those with severe liver or kidney problems. These drugs should not be used in combination with drugs used for migraine treatments and antidepressants.

The Ayur Vedic Medicine is suitable only for certain people. In South India these drugs proves its worth and diet restriction plays a major roll in this. To my knowledge the persons who uses these Ayur Vedic drugs should avoid Non Vegetarian food and alcohol., which is not possible in Western countries. For getting full effect of Ayur Vedic Medicine the sufferer should take a bath in Ayur vedic herbal soaked water, and sit before a lamp lit with a herbal oil. This supportive therapy will cure faster. We should not scold about a medicine since we don't know how to utilize them to get 100 percent effect.
