Letter from the Herbalist

Maureen Rpgers


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. 

       I 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.
