This blog is intended to open the public’s eyes as to the possibilities of herbs as medicine. There is a lot of information on the web about herbs, but they don’t always give references so you don’t know if the information is legitimate or accurate. Also one site tends to copy from another so they all seem to support the information. However, if the first site is wrong then all those who copy the info are wrong.

Dr. Morse’s blogs will include references whenever possible and she will always tell you to talk to your primary care physician when thinking of using any supplement or herb.
