Letter from the Herbalist
I have to admit I do give
suggestions what herbs I would take for a problem. I'm
very aware what things could give me legal problems because
I have friends that are retired attorneys. It's sad
but you should be aware of what causes problems. Jim
Duke taught me that. You never caught him saying
anything wrong but he always got his position across.
So I'm pleading with you good
intentioned herbie folk: Don't say all over your web site or
Facebook page that you can cure someone's issue. Say
you or your aunt had this problem and used such and such.
This is not true for people in other countries who license
herbalists just those that live in the good old USA.
It's one of those little quirks that can help you avoid some
legal issues. I know you are saying what you believe
is true, but the medical establishment doesn't like
competition so that kind of talk is forbidden.
especially like the comment that "I'm just a little person
and those nasty people won't notice." If you think
that's true, wise up. If potential customers can find
you, people that you don't want to find you will too. We
will eventually win, but until we do, STOP. We don't
want to read about you in court.
