Upcoming Event Information

July is Herbal-Prescription Interaction Awareness Month

July is designated as Herbal-Prescription Interaction Awareness Month to educate consumers about the risks associated with taking herbal supplements before consulting your doctor.

However, while some dietary and herbal supplements come from natural sources and offer health benefits, the term “natural” does not always mean something is safe for you to consume.
